Thunder Brother Special Review

The great Page 45 have reviewed my latest comic, Thunder Brother Special, on their website. "It's completely madness, clearly, but let's face it, all soaps are totally insane condensed parodies of real life, so this neatly squares the lunacy factor and in doing so makes it infinitely more enjoyable than an episode of Emmerdale could ever be..!" You can read the full review here

Comic Heroes Interview

I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Graham Kibble-White for the new issue of Comic Heroes, out this week. It's quite a substantial interview, featuring lots of artwork from my comic-creating past and present, and also features an exclusive strip about being interviewed by Graham drawn especially for the magazine (how meta is that?). Graham did a great job of writing something coherent from what I'm sure was a rambling mess of a monologue from me that lasted for hours.

Pope Francis Goes To The Dentist review

I was delighted to learn that, after including my graphic novel There's No Time Like The Present, in their list of best graphic novels for 2015, that the influential Bleeding Cool have included Pope Francis Goes to The Dentist as one of their eleven favourite single-issue comics of 2016.  Richard Johnston writes, "possibly my favourite comic of the year", which is saying something considering how many comics he must read for his job. Copies of Pope Francis Goes To The Dentist are available from my shop.
