Here’s a badly-drawn, rubbish comic strip I did circa 2003 for Nice; the small press comic that me and my pals put together. It chronicles my experiences of being a man with a ponytail. It wasn’t a good idea then and it isn’t now.
I’ve just read another comic book (of all things). This time it’s Gonzo: A Graphic Biography of Hunter S. Thompson by Will Bingley and Anthony Hope-Smith. I must confess that I do know the artist and writer of this book which was my primary reason for reading it, but I must say it really is [...]
I rarely read comics these days but after reading Mould Map last week I’ve only gone and read another, although technically it’s a collection of comics I’ve already read in their previous incarnations. The book in question is Batman:Ego and Other Tails which is not a typo but a reference that the majority of the [...]
I just read Mould Map. It’s an A3 sized anthology of one page comics by a collection of seemingly like minded cartoonists and artists from all over the world. The strips are all short science fiction stories and often dreamlike and surreal. It’s an impressive object. Printed with just two colours on heavy stock paper [...]

It always sounds to me like someone trying to make the word “comics” sound more highbrow. You probably already know, but if you don’t I work [...]
I took time out from Ha Bloody Ha to read Decadence #7, which is a self-published sci-fi comics anthology. I read it primarily because it featured my pal Jon Chandler in it, but it also features Leon Sadler of Famicon fame, and a bunch of other cartoonists. I recognised Lando and Tsemberlidas‘ work from other [...]
Late last year I got in touch with some cartoonists to draw some comic strips to go in a zine to accompany Josie Long‘s Lost Treasures of the Black Heart night, devoted to unsung heroes. My first response was the above strip by Paul Rainey. The zine is yet to materialise but the night continues [...]
Page 1 Here’s an early attempt at making a comic. It’s references to Jive Bunny and RoboCop set it at around 1989 and make me about 10 years old at the time. You’d probably think I’d find this excruciatingly embarassing but I’m beginning to think I was about the bestest kid out (albeit completely mental).
