Yes it's flipping political

...Everything's satirical. Well, Tales of Extraordinariness #6: Blah, Blah, Something, Democracy. is. A bit. Though it's mostly stupid.

It's a very small comic that features Intergalactic Megatyrant Zorxnax seeking your vote.

As usual, available from: probably me in person. Maybe Travelling Man? Though I said that the last couple of times and don't think I've actually given them any. Yet! Maybe I'll get sort it out now, who knows.


Paperjammening No.2

Yo! 'Small Press Day' has been invented, and loads of excellent events are occurring all over the place. I, along with a selection of tremendous small press comic artists will be at this thing...


Making 'Making' for Makers

The latest Paper Jam Comics Collective anthology, Making ...And That has been, er, made! It's being launched at the amazing Maker Faire!

Paper Jam had a table at the first Maker Faire in the UK (back in 2009) and we felt it was about time we represented once again at the low-tech end of the punky DIY creative spirit that Maker Faire (and PJCC) is all about.

The comic, then, is themed around making stuff and covers the making of a range of things from the international space station to D&D characters to jam - and, of course, comics.

I've done a couple of one-pagers for it, one about the amazingness of the humble paper clip and one about the interlinked nature of stuff in the modern world.

If you're around in Newcastle this weekend, you should definitely check out the Maker Faire, it's always full of astounding sights and a palpable passion for science and creativity, and even if all the soldering and coding seems too techy for you, hey, roll by the PJCC table and makes some comics, we'll even provide the pens and paper.


Radio even more on

As mentioned previously, the excellent music-themed comic anthology Radio On recently released it's second issue, which featured a daft little story by me about ROCK (amongst much other fine work).

Well! Slightly belatedly, it's getting a 'proper' launch - Saturday 23rd January at the Central Bar, Gateshead, from 7.30pm. Full details here!

Featuring live music from HelixHelix, plus DJ sets from Santa Sangre and... The Creature From The Funk Lagoon! Yep, I'll be slapdashedly spinning some entertaining choons for dancin' feet.

And it's all free. Well, you're encouraged to have purchased a copy of the comic, but, like, the comic is good value even without a mint night of musical entertainment thrown into the bargain, so you should totally get in on this!
