In the shops now

Here's a preview of a panel from the Pup Parade page I did for the current issue of The Beano. The Pups decide it's time to clean their bin, - and you can guess that's not going to work out! 

Also in the shops this week is Doctor Who Magazine No.501. It's another bumper issue (100 pages), featuring a mammoth Tom Baker interview and bagged with posters and art cards. My contribution is another Daft Dimension strip. Here's a detail from one panel. If I show any more it'll ruin the gag, so shhhh!

The Beano No.3842 (£2.55) and Doctor Who Magazine No.501 (£5.99) - both on sale now!

Back from Macc-Pow!

The first Macc-Pow! comic con in Macclesfield proved to be a success last Saturday. My thanks to everyone who visited my table for a sketch, comic, or print. You can read my full report on the event over at my Blimey! blog at this link:

The next convention I've been invited to is the Shrewsbury International Comic Art Festival and you can find out more about that here:

New prints available this Saturday!

When I published Brickman Returns! last September the plan was to do more comics featuring my old characters. As it's turned out, I've been too busy with mainstream comics work to start on another title just yet, so for the time being I've decided to publish a few prints. 

Just delivered from the printers this morning is The 7 Ages of Fan, a drawing I did in 1998 that a lot of people wanted as a print, and now it is, in luxurious full colour, A4 size. Secondly, an A5 size print featuring six of my characters, (with brief info about each on the reverse). They join the two postcard-size prints of Combat Colin and Derek the Troll I did recently and all will be on sale at Macc-Pow! this Saturday (with mail order availability soon). I'll also have issues of Brickman Returns and Brickman Begins with me too, and I'll be drawing sketches on commission, so drop by my table!

That Troll, - He's a card!

The second batch of my mini-prints arrived from the printers this morning. This one features Derek the Troll, a character I created over 30 years ago that appeared in Warlock and White Dwarf magazines in the 1980s, published by Games Workshop. 

The postcard-sized prints will be available alongside the Combat Colin prints (and copies of Brickman Returns!) at Macc-Pow! - the comics convention that's taking place in Macclesfield on Saturday 25th June. See you there!

Brickman in Lancaster

I'm very pleased to reveal that copies of my comic Brickman Returns are now on sale at Lancaster's fine comic shop First Age Comics. Thanks to proprietor Mark Braithwaite for offering to stock them after I met him at Lancaster Comics Day last weekend. 

As you can see from the photo above, you'll find them alongside DC Universe Rebirth and various other top U.S. comics. Where better placement for a Batman parody?

So, if you live in or around Lancaster, or are visiting that nice part of the country, drop in at First Age Comics and Buy Brickman!
