TNTLTP Updates

I have some There's No Time Like The Present updates for you. Firstly, Paul Gravett, the curator of the That’s Novel exhibition, recently wrote about it here. There's more information about the exhibition along with a sample of one of the pieces I drew exclusively for it.

Secondly, TNTLTP was name checked in the latest Utter Shambles comedy podcast hosted by Robin Ince and Josie Long. They were talking to Mark Gatiss about some of their favourite films, TV shows and actors when my name and the Ultranet are mentioned. I was out walking and listening to the show on my ipod and I was so surprised to hear my work mentioned in this context that I laughed into the face of a passing woman. The podcast can be downloaded for free from here.

Finally, as well as being able to buy the entire series of TNTLTP from my website shop, it also available from the following real world venues - GOSH, Orbital and the London Print Studio in London, OK Comics in Leeds, Nostalgia and Comics in Birmingham, Worlds Apart in Liverpool and Forbidden Planet in Manchester.

BASTARDS 2 Reviewed

Richard Bruton has posted a review of BASTARDS 2, the high quality book collection of British small press cartoonists including episodes of Ghost Zombie and The Doctor Kyle Show by me. "The quality is top notch, and there’s more than enough really enjoyable strips to make it worth your while forking out a tenner for this really solid collection." All contributors to BASTARDS 2 have copies for sale but you can also buy it directly from me for £10 (price includes P&P to the UK) using the Paypal button here or at BICS this weekend.

Comics - On the Ration

My friend Robert Wells and I have started a comic review blog called On The Ration. The object of the blog is for us to only buy comics if they conform to a strict financial criteria. We post reviews of the value for money comics and graphic novels we find, including our methods of sniffing out a bargain, as well as our Objects of Desire. A great place to start reading the blog is with the rules here. We look forward to seeing you over there.
