Breaking news!

Hey Beaver and Steve fans, I have two new books out!

Mameshiba on the Loose is the tale of the adventures of a group of beans with tiny dog faces - yes that's right, BEAN DOGS. Bean dogs that love trivia. The book is illustrated by Jorge Monlongo, with scripts by me.

Super Animal Adventure Squad is about the adventures of the world's most elite team of anthropomorphic secret agents, as they thwart evil scientists, battle pirates and eat lots of cake. It is released on the 6th of October 2011 and is completely drawn and written by me. All of it! There is also a facebook page for it here

If you like Beaver and Steve I am pretty sure you will find these books exceedingly enjoyable, so please check them out! (these links will take you to the amazon UK website, but they are also available from many other retailers and will hopefully be in shops too!)

Yes, I'm afraid it's true: I'm putting Beaver and Steve on the dreaded 'indefinite hiatus'. I've been incredibly lucky and managed to get someone to pay me to draw a new comic, but I've realised that working a full time job, then coming home and working another full time job doesn't really leave me with much time to spend thinking up unfeasible new adventures. So rather than let the comic get gradually less and less funny I'm going to put it on hold until I have the time to give the comic the attention it needs, however long that takes. Sorry everyone! But don't feel too bad - here's a few ideas to take the sting out of it:


* Register to be on the Beaver and Steve newsletter by typing your email address here : I'll e-mail you the second I start updating again!
* Subscribe to the Beaver and Steve RSS feed! For the technically minded!
* Read my livejournal! I'm sure I'll mention it when I start drawing Beaver and Steve again. It has pictures!
* Join the Beaver and Steve group on facebook! So you can all complain about how I sold out together!
* Watch your TV! Beaver and Steve is currently in development as an animated series, so it might be appearing on your TV any year now!
* Or just keep checking this website obssessively every day until it returns. Frustrating!

* Read the archives! There's 345 other episodes to see, so why not read 2 a week, and pretend I'm still updating for the next 3 years!
* Buy the books! Book 2 has been selling really badly, and both books contain all-new material!

* I have a new strip The Super Animal Adventure Squad appearing in the weekly print comic the DFC - It's like Beaver and Steve, only with more ADVENTURE. Subscribe today and you'll get a new issue delivered to your house every week!
* I'll also be posting any new art and things that I make on my livejournal. Take a look!

* Don't worry there are millions of other comics on the internet! All the ones on my links page are excellent, and if that's not enough here's another page of all the other comics I read that I didn't have space to put on my links page. Enjoy!
* And if those aren't Beaver and Steve-y enough for you there are a whole pile of fan-made Beaver and Steve comics on the fan art page!

* I wrote an article for a paper about how to draw super heroes! Now you have no excuse not to start a comic yourself!

* Maybe that's going a bit far.

I hope that's been some help, and I hope I'll see you all here again in the not-too-distant future!
