Back at the end of last year, I was asked to contribute to a comic to be called 'Loup Garou', which was to feature all werewolf strips.
I was given a script, by Rich Clements, and got on with the tale. Upon completion the strip was delivered and I waited to hear about publication.
Unfortunately the title was not to be, due to a variety of reasons that aren't mine to talk about.
That left me with a quandry- where could I get this strip seen? FQ- not likely as the strip is A5 size. Lost Property- not really the sort of strip I run there. That left me homeless, so until such time as I hear of an A5 title wanting a werewolf strip it is going to be here.
let me know what you think.

The Stag Party is away to be coloured! At last, after what seems like forever, the exploits of the Fatties will be seen.
Having finally gotten that strip out of my immediate box I’ve begun the two page framing sequence for Something Wicked. Nice to be doing something so soon after getting it going.
The cover to Something Wicked has now gone for proper colouring, after Mr LMS sent his pic earlier this week. It is a lovely piece and the cover as a whole is outstanding.
I’ve also nearly finished my pic for the Wild West Wendy wanted gallery. I got to draw a reasonable horse and I’m pleased with how it looks (as of this writing)

First post in my new posting! A busy week learning but I’m settling in.
The above J&G didn’t appear in Lost Property 02, though it will appear in issue 03 (Now due for Brighton this year, as I’m having to adjust to new schedules at work which eat into any time I can put to other things) when the time is right.
Something Wicked reaches the deadline for artwork on Monday, and I doubt that I’ll have much till the week after that. I’ve booked the printers though so I’m hoping that I’ll make my delivery deadline.
Stag Party: I finished inks on page 5 (of 6) last night so it is rapidly approaching completion. After that I’ll move onto the pages that I should am contributing to Swicked.

Happy new year! First post since then.
In a bid to increase my page turnover for this year, I have finally started on the inks for Stag party! I have finished the first page and I’m a third of the way through page 2. I want to have this strip finished asap now, as I started it about 16 months ago.
I’ve also been working on two pages that are due to appear in Something Wicked, a horror spin-off from FutureQuake that will hopefully be going to press in the next couple of months.
In other news: I leave my comfy stores on the 13th Jan. I have been in this post for almost 13 years but I’ve accepted a secondment position that will ‘hopefully’ lead on to something more permanent. The end result is that I may not be able to maintain my workload of titles, with Lost Property being the likely loser. I’m not going to call time on the project yet, as I’ll try to get a third issue produced, but I don’t see myself carrying on after then.
The competition on SFX has now closed, and the winners comics have been posted by myself today.
