Head over to the Forbidden Planet International blog to read it.

In other news, I’m told issue 2 will be out in a couple of weeks. Oh, and thanks to everyone who came out to both the Leeds and Dublin cons on the last two weekends. It was great to meet you all.

Except I’m working. Bleh.

Anyway,  made a small update to the site – look to your left to see the new page for original artwork for sale.

Also, a reminder that I will be in Leeds on the 10th November for the Thought Bubble comics festival, with my partner in crime Mr Gillen. I’ll be selling copies of Suburban Glamour, Phonogram, artwork, t-shirts and prints. If you’re in the area please pop along to say hello.

There was a bit of a flap over at Lying in the Gutters recently over someone commenting here that they “acquired” my comic online and liked it.

Obviously I would much, much rather people bought the actual comics I produce than torrent them. Not only does it mean I earn money for the long hours I put into the work (and as it’s my fulltime job, it’s the only money I earn), it also shows my publisher AND retailers that there is an audience for my comics, improving my chances of continuing in this career. Not only that but my publisher benefits from a better-selling book, and as they’ve been very good to me that’s something I am keen to encourage.

But I’m not naive enough to think that this is going to stop people torrenting my stuff. So, with that in mind, if you *have* downloaded my comics and liked them, and you want to support the artist behind them so that he can continue to make comics, feel free to use the Paypal button below to send a few dollars or pounds my way.

(Under “Item”, put “torrent” or “donation” or whatever else you want. Paypal requires you fill in the field to say what the money you’re transferring is for.)
