Nottingham Comic Con

I'll be attending the Nottingham Comic Con this weekend. All the usual tat will be on display, but also new for this year's show I'll have the book collection of Abigail and the Snowman as well as my latest Fred the Clown graphic novel, The Iron Duchess.

Sketching will occur.

And I'm on a panel about what it's like to work with big licenses, which I used to do quite a bit of (and I think this year's Betty Boop series probably counts, just about).

Here's an image I drew for promotional purposes for last year's show. This time around, I've contributed a one-page strip for their convention anthology, Forest Tales, so you might want to look out for that as well. It's packed with a stellar array of talented contributors – you can find out more about it here.

Abigail and the Snowman

So – the collected edition of Abigail and the Snowman is finally, officially coming out tomorrow! (Also available to order online from,, or directly from Boom! Studios.) I first started looking for a publisher for this project about five years ago but got nowhere with it at the time. Later, Boom! Studios asked me to pitch them a few ideas, so I included this one among them, not expecting them to go for it... but they did! So big thanks to them for enabling the book to finally happen.

I'd always seen it as a single, stand-alone story in one volume (its serialisation last year was a compromise, to fit in with Boom!'s standard publishing model), so it's a big deal for me to see it finally appear as I originally intended.

And, of course, I will have copies for sale this weekend at the Nottingham Comic Con.

Lakes Sketches I

Here's the first of a run of sketches I drew at the Lakes Festival last weekend. Thanks to everyone involved – organisers, guests, exhibitors and visitors all – I had a great time!

Lakes International Comic Art Festival!

I'm going to be at LICAF this weekend! Here are just a few of the books I will have for sale there:


This is the book of the series Boom Studios published early last year, now finally collected in a single volume - the form I originally wanted for it. I'm not even sure it's in comic book stores yet, so this will be your chance not only to get it before anybody else, but to have it signed and sketched-in by the author.


I only have a limited number of copies of this, written by me and drawn by the very talented Gisèle Lagacé. Grab them early!


My latest self-published effort, 100 pages of wordless silent movie-inspired shenanigans with the Fredster.


Again, very limited quantities of these. My most recent series from Boom!, drawn by the amazing Andy Hirsch.

I will also have many of my other books (all three volumes of Snarked!, The Show Must Go On, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Popeye, etc.), minicomics, original artwork, and will be drawing custom sketches for visitors throughout the weekend for a modest fee.

Last year was my first Lakes Festival and I had a great time. I'm sure this year will be no exception. Hope to see some of you there!
