TURNS out the mightily-talented Declan Shalvey has his hands full with Frankenstein, Freak Show and a basketful of other paying work. We've therefore decided to push back the launch of the full-colour Tim Skinner: Total Scumbag one-shot to the Birmingham International Comics Show in October. It'll be worth the wait, though, honest.
That means my appearance at the San Diego Comicon (if it happens and I'm still mulling it over) will be all about pushing Septic Isle instead. This could actually work in my favour as SI is the kind of quintessentially English book that might just stand out there.
* THE front cover to SI is finished and I'll post it here soon. It ended up being a real collaborative effort in the end - artwork by Dec, logo by Will Sliney, and Dec and I going back and forth until we were both happy with the positioning and size of all the other bits on there. It looks great and perfectly captures the book's slightly chilly atmosphere.
* I'VE just been interviewed via email by Hassan from the indiereview.co.uk website. In it I answer questions about pretty much everything I've done including Devilchild, Hero Killers, Septic Isle, Brothers and Tim Skinner. Look for it on indiereview later this week...
