If you’re on Facebook, there is now a group for Magic Beans Comics. Started by escaped mental patients, it now has an astonishing SIX members 🙂 There are some comic strips and stuff so have a look if you get time!


Philadelphia 10

Part 11 on Sunday! The devastating conclusion to The Philadelphia Experiment draws close…

Prestonpandemonium 3 was a huge success, we had a great time! My new comic I Cashed A Dead Man’s Pension went down pretty well, and Omnivistacope 4 did too. (There’s a review of OVS4 on Down The Tubes here by the way!)

I got some great comics and books too, like Graeme Neil Reid’s One Last Time, Magda Boreysza’s Toastycats, and Gavin Inglis’s Crap Ghosts. All highly recommended!

Gavin also very kindly gave me a copy of The Cocoanuts, the Marx Brothers first film and the only one I didn’t have. Hence the gratuitous Marx-tastic clip above 🙂

Bargain of the day was getting issue 23 of Groo The Wanderer for 50p, a true classic and the first appearance of those mendicants Pal n Drumm. Sheer joy!

So a big hello and thanks to Graeme, Jeremy, Tom, Bruce, Paul and his adorable son, Kerry, Gavin, Magda and everyone else I saw. And a mega-thanks to Nigel and Jan for putting on such a great event!


Philadelphia 9
