Still no phone line.
So, this exciting news I promised yesterday, then. Well, basically, the comic I came up with – Gangrene – has been picked up by the good folks at Arcana Comics. The four issue mini-series will be published first in comic, then in graphic novel format, and will be written by me, with artwork by my massively talented co-creator, Neil Chenier.
Between writing a 5-7 yrs novel for Egmont, and rewriting one of my own projects, I managed to get the full 22 page script for issue one done, and I’m very happy with it. It features gratuitous violence, dramatic entrances, a morally dubious hero, and a mutant dog – everything a good comic book should have.
In even more exciting news, next week I start on another two books in the top secret series I’ve been writing for Egmont. The first one, which I wrote a couple of months back, is released in January, with the next two I’m doing due to come out some time in May.
Which reminds me, both BEASTLY!: SPIDER SWAT and WOW! 366 came out at the start of the month, so feel free to buy them using the links on the right, if you haven’t done already. There are some fantastic stories in WOW! 366, and all proceeds go to Childline, so it’s worth picking up for all sorts of reasons. Gordon Brown’s isn’t really a story, so much as a bitterly uninteresting anecdote, but most of the others are well worth a read. Even Tom from McFly’s, despite all expectations to the contrary.
Anyway, it’s been raining like a long weekend at Noah’s for the past few days, but this afternoon – following a particularly nasty downpour – the sun came out and we all played football in the garden for a bit. Tomorrow, we’re off to a barbecue with live music in aid of my son’s new school. Fortunately it’s covered, so even if it rains I’ll be able to stuff my face on half-cooked chicken legs, before coming home and trying to get another 4,000 words done of my latest rewrite.
