A Green Turtle pinup by Kazu Kibuishi!

And The Shadow Hero gets a 10/10 rating in Newsarama‘s Review!

The Flight anthologies edited by Kazu were such fun to work on, and an inspiration for the Liquid City books, so very well chuffed to have Kazu do a piece!

And a big thanks for Forrest Helvie for the review 🙂

Flight (final) Volume 8

The final volume of the Flight anthology is out! You can get  it on Amazon.

I’ve got a Malinky Robot story, “New Year’ Day” in there; pre-0rders of a new Malinky Robot collection is also up on Amazon, buy it here!

It’s been a fun ride on the Smooth Wave! (so says  Douglas Wolk)

The upcoming Flight vol 8 will be the last in series, characterised by Douglas Wolk as representative of the “Smooth Wave” of non-mainstream comics. Taking part in Flight has been a great experience and great exposure, so I felt I had to try to do a story for the final collection. Its got the little blue robot again, a story that’s sort of a homage to Jiro Taniguchi’s Walking Man, along with expriences at Bicof in South Korea last year 🙂
