It’s a-me! Hey thanks for posting one of favourite Noonan scenes (and also not calling me out on looking at my Tumblr tags…)

Thank you for putting River Song in The Pond Life comic! I rushed to get the comic when I found out! I'm one of many fans who wanted to see Melody with her family and wished we saw her in the miniseries. Thanks to you, we see this at last! xx

You are most welcome! And that also goes out to all the Melody/River fans out there who have gotten in touch the past few days, you’re all very sweet. I know it’s only 1 page but hopefully that will tie you over until the next time we see her (which I don’t know when will be but someday…)

Ooh check you out with a backup strip in Doccy Who - big congrats I'm super jealous but pleased to see a small press-er rising through the ranks! Lets get ahead of ourselves for a brief moment and pretend the big two are clamouring at your door - what would be your dream comic/character from the toybox would you love to be let loose on? :)


I think out of all the Marvel books (was never a DC fan to be honest) - Generation X is the one that still has a warm place in my heart and it’s for that reason alone I’d love to draw those characters. Chris Bachalo drew the first few arcs and came out with the designs and, man, what an artist, I spent hours pouring over his drawings and layouts, loving this “Vertigo” style on a brand populated by the Kubert brothers style.

I think if that book had any failings is that they spent more time trying to save the world and less time at the mall and believe me if I were in charge there would be more sitting around eating pizza than super-heroics, buddy!

Also believe it or not but Marvel put out a “Underground Special” by Jim Mahfood which in the late 90’s which BLEW MY MIND and is what led me to finding the Clerks comics he drew at Oni and then Oni Press itself and the golden era of books they put out in the early 00’s. So yeah thanks Marvel for getting me into indie comics?!?! WUBBA LUBBA DUB DUBS. 


But! I’ll be honest my dream “work for hire” job at the moment would be to do some work on KaBoom’s Cartoon Network and Frederator range. Adventure Time, Bee & Puppycat, Regular Show, Steven Universe are all totally amaaaazing but it seems that every other cartoonist in the world is also trying to get through that particular door. Maybe one day…

So. Yeah. Guess who has a monthly strip in the new Doctor Who: 11th Doctor comic from Titan Comics?

It’s me, guys. It’s totally me!!!!

The Eleventh Doctor was and is still my favourite Docco, even if the last series didn’t do that much for me, I still cared for that raggedy man and held back a big tear when it was finally time to let him go. The Eleventh Hour is still one of the best season openers of telly I’ve ever watched and it was really season five where it all started to click for me. I loved Eleven’s boyish enthusiasm mixed with this old man look at the world, there’s so much going on under that mad looking face. I loved his stupid fez and his stupid glasses and his stupid braces and his stupid puffed-out-chest run! Most of all though, it’s the friendship between him and The Ponds I enjoyed the most, he truly loved his friends (who turned out to be his in-laws?!) and it’s that aspect I’m tapping into with my back-up strips, just with more laughs. Titan told me; “Think Darth Vader & Son but with the Doctor.”

Titan’s approach with my strips is very much like that of Boom’s Adventure Time range; you have a main story going on in the front and then you can a page or two of nonsense at the back. I think their efforts should be applauded, they’re very much trying to branch the comics out to a wider audience, a more Tumblr friendly, web comic savvy crowd. Kudos to them and I hope the back ups become more of a regular thing and a massive massive thanks to editor Andrew James for going to bat for me several times. I’ve just handed in September’s page (my favourite so far) and I’m working on the fourth strip right now. It’s a really fun job which I am enjoying immensely and hope they keep me on for a very long time to come.

Issue 1 drops Wednesday, though sadly for UK dudes you can’t get it in any shop other than the Forbidden Planets you can buy it from ANY COMIC SHOP in the world or via Comixology.

I am really digging the new Batgirl design from Cameron Stewart and Babs Tarr. I mean, gosh, it’s a lot of fun with it’s Doc Martens, detachable cape, Bat-helmet, etc. It’s also a much needed kick up the arse for the utterly gross New 52 line, which for the most part has made me shake my head continuously for the past three years.

So I hope the book is a huge success, I hope that “D.C Entertainment” look at this and think “oh cool we don’t have to make everything look like a shitty video game” and start putting some money behind some more interesting looking books.

Anyway, get a blog guy, am I right? Jeez. I well prefer my sketches here, especially the one with Barbs scoffing the burger. Will I ever be able to reenact this spontaneity in my finals? WHO KNOWS.
