Well, then. Here we are at last.
Hot - well, warmish, off the presses is my brand spanking new and spanking comic book Proscenium - best described as an anthology of Strange Stories. That and so much else besides will adorn my table at London Super Comic Con at the end of this very week.
As well as Proscenium, there will be copies of The Grinning Man and Nature Red; my two stand alone ghost story comic books, available too.
What else? Well, my second fan book - The Vault of Such; containing the collected art from the Vampire Variations series a while back plus various other illustrations from video games to classic horror movies, will be available alongside my remaining pair of custom painted shoes - Dragon Ball Z pair A. This pair is UK size 8. Prints, and Mike Read has Beautiful Breath; my strangely titled first fan book containing illustrations from video games, cartoons, and such, shall be available also.
So - if any of the above tickles your proverbial pickle; then my table, and indeed the rest of Artist's Alley, may be for you.

The sun is shining and the birds are singing. The doors to the dungeon boom to a close behind me; and in my hands are the fruits of the last...pffft....eight months...?
Introducing: Proscenium. It's a comic book. Sort of.
For those of you who perhaps aren't aware (and I'm sure that's most of you) my last few original comic books have been ghost stories. While Proscenium continues this trend with supernatural strands and an atmosphere of ghostliness, (yes I believe there is a difference) it cannot be described strictly as a ghost story. But neither is it a "horror" comic. Confused? Fair enough...
Proscenium is an anthology of daydreams and intrusions. At best it fits within the genre of the Strange Story: where perhaps there are usually supernatural, or psychological explanations to the goings on. Often, in fact, it is a little of both.
Here's a preview of select pages from the book:
There are five stories, or episodes, to the book: a poem, an illustrated story, and three comics.
Proscenium is 68 pages; colour and black and white throughout - and will be available at my table at London Super Comic Con on August 25th - 27th. Shortly afterwards it will be available elsewhere. Hopefully.
Watch this space for more updates closer to the event.
