Spandex vs. Father Christmas

Martin Eden's great superhero comic Spandex has enjoyed unexpected but deserved attention since its first issue was published at the end of last year. He has generously decided to spread the opportunity around amongst other comic artists by running Japandex on his website throughout June. Japandex is a project where artists are invited to contribute their own spin on the theme with a new illustration appearing each day. Mine, which was published yesterday, features Martin's character Neon fighting Father Christmas... Manga style. Seriously, it's worth checking out when you have time because the contributions are stunning.

When I started work on There's No Time Like The Present in 2004, although I had a clear idea of the overall story, I didn't imagine that that it would run for this long. Recently, however, I drew the 300th page! Page 300 will appear in the final issue of TNTLTP available in a few weeks time. In the meantime, here's a panel from it to tide you over.

MCM Expo Booty

It's Wednesday already and I'm still yet to fully recover from the MCM Expo which took place over the weekend. It was hard work made even harder by there basically not being a train service on Sunday. Still, I picked up some pretty cool comics including the delightful 100 Planets by Daniel Merlin Goodbrey. I haven't a reproduction of the cover art for you here but Daniel posts a new page from his great strip every week on his website.

Sean Azzopardi has produced 100 Days of Winter, his sketch book diary that doesn't last for as long as the artist intended but manages to be both beautiful and touching just the same. Visit Sean's website here for more information and cool stuff.

My table buddy Peet Clack , now known by the nickname of Clackers, has produced a very funny mini-comic called Handy (& Hoofy) Home Hints With Afro Horse. I demand that you check it out.

There were other comics by creators there that I wanted but didn't buy and now regret. You know who you are if you're reading this. Hopefully I'll have an opportunity to correct these mistakes another time.
