This week I've been busily working on Kingdom. Page 3 was completed (pencil-wise) in a flurry of activity and page 4 is coming together steadily.
We lost the cover artist for Dogbreath 18, which was a bit of a blow, and is still not sorted. I'm working on a back up plan of doing it myself if I have to, but I'm not keen on that to be honest. Think Dogbreath deserves a 'pro' on the cover.
The running order for the next FQ is all sorted now, and I think it is going to be a well received issue. Hopefully the last few pages of strip will be here within the week so I can get to the printer early for once!

Bit of a bias here, as I lettered the second issue, but the Bros Denton have sent me copies of both WALKING WOUNDED comics that are in print, and damn fine theye are too.
Featuring the war-time exploits of a group of supposedly unfit for duty soldiers, this is a well written and drawn series that will leave you wanting more.
Massacre For Boys
Progress is slow on the kingdom strip. As the deadline for the latest crop of comics gets closer, the amount of time I have to devote to the artwork that I love shrinks.
Still, I can't really complain as I agreed to take all this on.
So far I am pencilling the third page (of five) and I think this is some of the best work I've done. However I feel like that about all my work till the ink is dry, then I can barely look at it.
Here's a rough scan of pages 1 & 2.
