There's No Time Like The Present Review

My graphic novel, There's No Time Like The Present has been reviewed in The Herald Scotland. "What begins as a very British satire on comics geekery (the great advantage of time travel, it turns out, is you can get future episodes of Doctor Who. Emmerdale too, if you really want), becomes a moving essay on ageing before spinning off again onto another tangent as we encounter a post-death universe.

Rainey's cartooning is the opposite of flashy but its simplicity grounds the story. The result is a quiet, bittersweet pleasure." Read it here.

TNTLTP at Waterstones Milton Keynes

If you're in or near to Milton Keynes this Thursday April 9 evening, then you may like to attend a free talk I am giving at Waterstones Bookshop in Midsummer Place, Central Milton Keynes at 6 PM. I'll be talking about some of the comics I've made over the years and how Milton Keynes may or may not have influenced them. I will also be sketching and signing copies of my new graphic novel, There's No Time Like The Present. The Facebook event can be found here.
