A New Canon

Here are the first two episodes to a strip I draw for Robin Barnard's Star Jaws. My plan isn’t to share them in this way normally but I originally misspelled Canon C A N N N O N like the gun and the pub instead of C A N O N like the the rule of law. These are the corrected versions.

Starman Review

Richard Bruton has reviewed my new comic, Starman, for the Comicon website. Richard says, "Suffice to say, it’s hugely enjoyable and set me off looking deeper into the life of Burretti, a fascinating story of triumph and tragedy that Rainey summarises beautifully, capturing all the aspects of a complicated life. Another one for the Best of British lists and definitely one you should be picking up." Copies of Starman are currently only available online from here
