Skinner for sale

THE Tim Skinner: Total Scumbag one-shot is now on sale in the shop. It's £3, plus £1.50 p&p, for 36 full-colour pages (just one page of ads). It's the first time artist Declan Shalvey and I have worked together since the Eagle Award-winning Hero Killers and we're both delighted with the results.

Other people rather like Skinner, too. Jonathan Hickman (writer of Secret Warriors and The Nightly News) called it "Fucking Hilarious" and Rich Johnston (writer of CBR's Lying In The Gutters column) said it was: "A very self-referential, up-its-own-arse comic that I was destined to love."

The book contains scabrous parodies of a host of much-loved comic stories, characters and creators, including Lost Girls, The Boys, Power Girl, Blankets, Judge Dredd, zombie books and Jack Kirby. It's guaranteed to make you laugh... or your money back.*

i've just spent a good fifteen minutes trawling throught your archives...
i should be drawing.
what ever happened to 'kurse'?
and the planned web-comics?
and what's happening with scoregasm?
...and how are you doing?

1. Kurse is something I plan to come back to later in the year. Still in my thoughts.

2. Web comics definitely happening sometime this year – I've got a couple of scripts out there and am just waiting for artists to finish them.

3. Brothers and BritForce will both be out for Bristol but Scoregasm is likely to be postponed until Birmingham, mainly because I haven't got the time to letter it or the money to print it right now.

We should meet up soon – I'm off work next week. Hope you're well.
