Just a reminder that this saturday, the 31st, I will be attending the third Prestonpandemonium comics event in Scotland. It’s a great day out, and as it’s part of the larger Three Harbours Arts Festival, attracts all kinds of interesting people. I’ve got a new comic out for it called I Cashed A Dead Man’s Pension, which is so awesome I’m giving it away free. 🙂 Come and say hello if you’re going!

On the same day at the other end of our Green and Pleasant Land, the first No Barcodes event is taking place in Camden Market. London Underground Comics have assembled some of the finest small press creators in the UK, and it promises to be quite a day. So if you’re in London on saturday go to No Barcodes!

I wish I could go to both, but I’m not Madrox The Multiple Man!*

One of my favourite online comic strips is the World’s Worst Webcomic, which is updated 5 times a week. It makes me laugh out loud so much, I just absolutely love it. Even though most of the jokes are about YOUR MOM. Yes, YOU. 🙂

Check it out!

I’m home from the Bristol Comics Expo, and totally worn out after a long weekend of sleep deprivation and heavy drinking 🙂

I had a fantastic time, it was great to meet up with new friends and old, and to see all the talented mofo’s out there! I’ll have more to say when I’m less knackered, but it was a superb festival. So many kids there again, passionate about comics, it really is wonderful to see. On a personal note I’d like to thank everyone who was down with the Magic Beans, and especially those who have been reading Mothman. It really means a lot, cheers.

Today I plan to chill out and read some of the comics I got at the weekend, Mr Amperduke, Duke Etrange’s World of Weird, Banal Pig, Sgt Mike Battle, and Al Ewing’s Iron Man-Noble Defender of Fascism, among many others, and listen to my new favourite band Justice.

By tomorrow I’ll wish I was back at Bristol with all my friends.
