October London Comic Con 2013 - Complete!

With the event now having extra floor space, I found London Comic Con to be a more laid back affair (I don't count Saturdays - they're always super crowded).

Thanks to anyone who dropped by and made the event as fun as it was.  It's always nice to see a healthy mix of new and familiar faces.  My new comics in particular seemed to go down quite well, and I hope anyone who bought anything enjoyed their purchases.

I'll update over the coming months about what's happening next with comics and event.  See you soon! :-)

Thief's Affair Issue 3

Arriving from the printer this morning is issue 3 of The Thief's Affair.  It's another chunky issue that contains two more chapters of action, drama and intrigue.  Seriously, events really hit the proverbial in this one so the plot continues to be all nice and twisty and turny. ;-)

It will be making its debut as MCM London Comic Con next week.  Please look out for it!

Camcon 2013 - Complete!

Camcon finished for me earlier today.  At the time I write  this many attendees will still be partying the night away, which sums up much of why this event was fun to attend.

Everyone was friendly and interested in having a good time.  The atmosphere of the dealer's room help create a really enjoyable event.  There were a few comic fans in there with Japanofail as ever being the most popular comic, but the Six Anthology also sneaking in for a notable second place.  Good times!

Next event is MCM London Expo in October.  See you in in 2 months! :-D

Japanofail 8

It's only been a couple months since issue 7, but I thought I'd get ahead of the game and so Japanofail 8 is here! This is good because it means I can have a new comic out for Camcon next weekend while also guaranteeing that a new comic is already done and ready for October's MCM Comic Con.  This comic being finished also gives me a little more breathing room to work on other comics.  Yay!

Please look out for it! ^_^

Manchester Comic Con 2013 - Complete!

It was extremely hot last Saturday, but this did not stop Manchester from hosting an excellent event!  Everyone was really friendly and it was great to meet so many new people.  Japanofail proved to be a big draw for buyers, with Cosplay Kerfuffle getting its share as well.  I don't always bring them along, but I also brought a bunch of badges to sell and they were super popular!

It felt really encouraging to attend an event as positive as this one.  If circumstances allow I'll certainly be interested in returning next year. :-)

So that's Manchester in the bag, next comes Camcon!  This will be my first time attending an event in Cambridge.  6 weeks to go!

Manchester Prep

So it's the Manchester Comic Con a week from today.  It's the first time I'm attending and am looking forward to seeing a lot of new faces.  I thought it'd be an idea to give a rundown of my wares so people have an idea of what to expect before hand.

Japanofail - Random short comic strips about otaku life.  As merciless as it is random.  Issues 1-7 available.

The Thief's Affair - Period-set mystery drama.  Lots of top hats and smoking of pipes.  Issues 1-2 available.

My Lovely Omnivore - Comedy action.  There's a tournament too, and penguins.  Volume 1 available.

Cosplay Kerfuffle - Self-contained comedy about cosplayers.  Cosplayers who swear.  A lot.

Beholder of the Eye - A fantasy tale of revenge and death. Recommended for mature readers. Issue 1-5 and complete.

DRUNK   - Self-contained story of drunk people.  Aggression and stupid combine.

Anthologies - Not sure what you're after?  Then maybe an anthology of multiple artists would be better.  One is called Six (a comics freestyle) and the other Till the Sun Grows Cold (containing entries of the Japanese Embassy's Manga Jiman competition).

If you're attending, come say hi! :-)

July 2013 London Film and Comic Con - Complete!

So the last weekend was London Film and Comic Con at Earls' Court - a venue which has surprisingly effective air con and fought well against the searing heat outside.

As ever thanks to everyone who dropped by.  There were a couple of returning people who came for more of my comics which is seriously the biggest compliment you guys can give. Thanks! :-)

My next event is up north in Manchester for their MCM Comic Con in just over a week.  It will be my first time attending as I rarely seem to escape the London events.  Treat me gently! ;-D

May 2013 MCM Comic Con - Complete!

So last weekend was another London MCM event in the bag.  As usual it's drawing me of all my energy and I'm currently lying around in a wrecked heap.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by.  Japanofail continued its dominance as being my most popular comic as issue 7 sold best out of everything.  Thief's Affair 2 and Cosplay Kerfuffle also started to find some new homes too so a bit of an all-rounder as event sales go. :-)

I'm always grateful for the support you guys show.  Hope you stay tuned for future events and future comics!

Next event: London Film and Comic Con at Earl's Court. 5-7th July!

May 2013 London Comic Con Preparation!

So once again I'll be attending London Comic Con which starts... tomorrow!  I thought I'd do a quick run-down of what I'll be doing there.

All of my comics are still in print and will be available on my table.  So if you're behind on any of me series or are wanting to fill gaps, you will have to chance to fix that. :-)

If you've been following my progression closely, you'll know I have 3 comics appearing at this event for the first time.  They are:

Cosplay Kerfuffle: A self-contained comedy about a group of cosplayers. (it debuted at Super London Comic Con a couple months back, but it's still quite new and is worthy of your attention)

Japanofail 7: More cynical!  More brutal! (more kittens)  More fail!

The Thief's Affair 2: The ongoing adventures of Jack as he continues to attempt to dodge what unfortunate incidents fate chooses to throw at him.

If you're attending feel free to pop over and say hi.  I can be found in the rear area of the hall in the Comic Village on table K10.  I've made a little map and highlighted my spot:

See you on the other side! :-)

Thief's Affair Issue 2

It's been over a year since the first issue of The Thief's Affair, but I've finally gotten around to finishing the next one!  To try and make up for the delay, issue 2 contains two chapters and feels a little more chunky and satisfying to hold.  More adventures in the city of Londra, as Jack finds himself in quite a tricky situation that will only escalate no matter what he tries.

Issue 1 is still available, so if you're new to the series it won't be hard to catch up!  Please keep an eye out for it at any of the comic events I'm attending throughout the year.

Japanofail 7

All ready to go from MCM Comic Con at the of the month is Japanofail 7 - another dose of the crazy, the misdirected and the just plain stupid.  If you liked the others you'll probably like this one too!

If you're new to Japanofail however issues 1-3 and some of 4 are available to read online here.  Of course you can always come and have a look in person as well.

Winter is over!

It's been a while since the last update, but as the sun's finally emerged from winter, so have I.  I've been busy the last couple of months booking events and working on new comics.  Curent new events that I'll be attending are:

MCM London Comic Con - 24-6th May

London Film and Comic Con - 5-7th July

MCM Manchester Comic Con - 20th July

I have my eye on one or two other events, but these are the 100% confirmed ones for the time being. :-)  I'm especially excited to be visiting Manchester as it's the first time I've visited that event.

I'm also working on two comics right now.  Hopefully they'll both be ready in time for May, but for now I'll just say they're coming on and the next 2-3 weeks will be quite busy for me hahahaa.  The preview above is for Japanofail 7, which I suppose constitutes as a new comic announcement.  Will keep you posted over the coming weeks!

LSCC 2013 - Complete!

So yeah London Super Comic Con was a weeks ago.  It was a good event, to which I would've mentioned earlier were it not for the fact that there was a demon virus flying around the convention hall, effectively wiping out half the attendance in the following days.  Am mostly recovered now, and if you got hit too I hope you're better as well.  Cosplay Kerfuffle had a positive launch, and I am hoping it will continue to do well at future events...

...which bring me to a certain point. I'm not currently booked up for any future events!  There are definitely specific places I want to bring my comics to, and others I'm not so sure about, but until booking open up there's little to be done in any case.  While we wait, if anyone has any suggestions or requests for events you'd like to see me at, please let us know either here or on my facebook page, and I can see if it's feasible.

Come what may I will be on the eye out for events, both the usual and perhaps one or two more unexpected places.  I'll keep you posted. :-)

London Super Comic Con 2013 Preview

So the London Super Comic Con is just a couple days away, and everything is ready.  Please check the map for as I'm on the opposite side to the majority of the Artist's Alley.  To help make the table a little easier to spot I now have a shiny banner which will be on display.  Looks much like this (exactly, in fact):

Also the new Cosplay Kerfuffle has since arrived from the printers, so it will definitely be making its debut this weekend.  I'll also have copies all of my other comics on hand.  If you're attending - come say hi! :-)

Cosplay Kerfuffle

It's new comic time!  Cosplay Kerfuffle is a one-shot comedy about cosplay, cosplayers, and the risks these people take whenever they put a costume on.  It's 28 pages long, so there's not much else I can say without ruining the plot. ;-)

The comic is currently at the printers and should be arriving in time for the London Super Comic Con next weekend (Check the map - I'll be sat on the right side near the Panel Room!).  Please look out for it!

New year - new comics!

It's been a while since I last updated here.  Basically I've just emerged from hibernating since October Expo and am now knee-deep in comics that need my attention.  My own fault really.

I'm currently working on six different titles, most of which are only in the writing stages.  3 of them you might already know if you're familiar know my work, so you can probably guess those ones, and the other 3 are entirely new things.  It's not worth giving more details as it's too soon for anything like that, but basically I'm writing to say I'm back in the game, and actively working on new comics!  No idea which one will be finished first, but will keep you posted.

I'll also have a table at next month's London Super Comic Con, so if you're attending feel free to pop over and say hi. :-)
