Whatever Happened to Thunder Brother: Soap Division

Some people have been asking me when will Thunder Brother: Soap Division return and I answer them, "soon, soon." I've been rethinking my strategy for the strip. Previously, I would release a page twice a week until the story is finished whereupon I would take a break for a couple of weeks or so before serialising the next tale in the same manner. I have decided instead to release a page every Sunday without any breaks between episodes at all. I hope for the strip to return before the end of February and you won't see it on a break before the entire saga has run it's course. Unless I go on holiday. Or somebody offers me a deal to publish it. Or I die.

While I've been thinking about things, I've neglected making posts to the blog about big soap opera events. For example, I missed Pat Butcher's death on EastEnders and Coronation Street winning Best Serialied Drama at the National Television Awards. All of this will change once TB:SD returns as a Sunday strip. Watch this space for details.

Jack The Robot!

Earlier this week, I was delighted to receive notification that my strip, Jack The Robot, runner up in the Dundee Comic Prize, will be appearing in The Beano after all. I don't know in which issue, all I know at this stage is that it's scheduled for sometime in February, so watch this space for details.
