The new Previews catalogue is out today. Suburban Glamour can be found on pages 154 and 155, and the order code is JUL07 1928.

Fancy a quick preview? Oh, you do? Great! Click the link below to be taken to a 6 page lettered preview. Please note these pages aren’t final – the comic WILL be in colour. However, rather than wait until these pages are available, I thought you might want to see a little bit of the story right away.

Click here for a 6 page preview!

Click on each page for the next.

Alternatively, access the individual pages by clicking on the thumbnails below.

If you want to pick up a copy of Suburban Glamour, I cannot stress the importance of pre-ordering enough. If you’re new to comics, pre-ordering is a system whereby you place your order for a comic ahead of time so that you are guaranteed a copy. Because comics are not sale-or-return, comic shops only order what they think they can sell. Understandably, this means that many comic stores have to be conservative in what they order. Therefore, if you have not pre-ordered a copy, you may have trouble finding it – especially as the size of the print run is based on the initial orders from comic stores.

So, if you want to buy my comic, pre-ordering will a) guarantee you a copy, and b) let the retailer know there’s interest, so that they may order more copies for the shelves. And then everyone feels better about themselves.

Remember, the order code is JUL07 1928.

Damn, they were right, Gillen really is a hack utterly dependent on your art.
Now you’ve done away with him and introduced some good dialogue too 😉

This makes me say things like “Oh my God” and “awesome” and I sound like that stereotypical American high school girl from that Teenagers song.

…Bonus points for using the insult “penis”.
Under-represented in the world of fiction, I feel.

Wow! Looking good…! But how do you get in touch with the hearts and minds of young people today? HOW? Your art rules, by the way.
