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!)
Well it looks like I'm almost back to full health, with only the occasional lump of unidentifiable greenish-brown matter being emitted from my throat. Hurrah! But while I've been ill it seems I've been forgetting to fill you in on important Boxcar Comics news! It's been all change in the lineup in the last couple of weeks, and I'm glad to announce that Gordon McAlpin's excellent comic Multiplex will be joining the line up, and exsisting members Mitch Clem and Joe Dunn are switching focus to bring their newest comics, San Antonio Rock City and Joe Loves Crappy Movies, to the group. These are all excellent comics that I was already reading every day, so it's great to have them on board. Woo!
And in other Boxcar news, the group is going to be trying to take as many members as it can to the San Diego comic con next year (I know it's a long way ahead, but you can't rush into these things. Planning is KEY), and various creators are holding auctions to to generate money for it. The latest one is a beautiful piece of piratical palaver by Ali Graham, so help us get to San Diego and put in a bid! And keep an eye out for more auctions on the boxcar site soon.
And finally, don't forget the spectacular new shirts are still available in the shop but hurry up - stocks are going fast. Some sizes have sold out already, but if you missed out you can still visit the shop and request a reprint - if I get enough requests I'll order more shirts. Don't be shy!
