A double helping of Spine Chillers for you this week you lucky people!

The mysterious project I have been working on since Hi-Ex can be revealed at last!

The Spine Chillers is a new weekly comic strip for Renegade Arts Entertainment, the first episode is up now, and a new episode will follow every friday. Hope you like it!

Coming right up!

The final part is coming up!


Be here on friday for the devastating conclusion to The Stink!

And some HUGE news about the future…

As you may have heard, the wonderful British children’s comic The DFC is to cease publication soon unless a buyer is found.

There is a campaign to organise a subscriber buyout, if you can help please do. The DFC needs YOU!

It’s taken me a while but I just wanted to say a few words about what a wonderful convention Hi-Ex 2 was! The first one was a hard act to follow, but this year was even better. Graeme Neil Reid summed it up better than I could, but a few of my favourite moments were the Watchmen panel, the Judge Minty fan film, the marvellous Cinebooks, the now traditional saturday night drunken jam comic, and just seeing friends old and new, united by a love of comics. I have to give a special thank you to Vicky and Rich for all their hard work in putting Inverness on the comics map, and organising the best con I’ve ever been to.

See you at Hi-Ex 3!

I will be at the Highlands Comic Expo in Inverness this weekend, hope to see some of you there!

Full report, and the final few horrifying chapters of The Stink, when I get back!

Sadly I couldn’t make it to the Edinburgh Zine-o-rama today, I hope it was a huge success for everyone who was there. I’m definitely going to the next one!

I will be at Hi-Ex in Inverness next weekend, details during the week!
