I know I’ve been a bit scarce on the ground but if you want to see me I will be out in public at the Homecooked Comics Festival next Sunday.   In May I’m heading to Japan for a month, so I will sadly not be at Oz Comic Con or at Continuum.

Australian Comics Journal review of The Sixsmiths

Big thank you to the Australian Comics Journal. “…plenty of great gags (a Norwegian death metal band’s day trip to St Kilda is especially amusing) and fun ideas and scenarios, as well as some ambitious world-building going on. This volume also recruits a wide pool of impressive art talent with Dean Rankine, Jase Harper, Sacha Bryning, Aly Faye, Gregory MacKay, Trevor Wood, Luke Pickett, Sarah Howell, Tim McEwen, Anton McKay, Bruce Mutard, Bobby N, Jan Scherpehuizen, and Ed Sienienkowicz presenting their own visual interpretations of The Sixsmiths’ universe.” FacebookTwitterTumblrEmail
