Damen. Draufganger. Dinosaurier.

The German edition of the Half Past Danger collection arrives in stores this month! Couldn't be more excited about this; my first foreign edition! It has all of the same content as the US hardcover edition, but in softcover and minus a few swastikas. Available to order here.

There will be a very limited edition hardcover edition available as a show exclusive at the huge Erlangen comic festival in Germany later this month. I'll also be appearing at the show to sign copies and make a fool of myself, in that order.

I got to design and draw an entirely new cover for this sucker, and it was great fun to revisit all the characters, whom I already miss dearly and can't wait to get back to for HPD 2.

More on that to follow...

HPD Deluxe Hardcover Collection



This coming Wednesday the 29th of January sees the release of the Half Past Danger Hardcover from IDW and myself! I'm delighted that the book will finally be available in my absolute favourite format.

This sucker weighs in with almost 50 pages of extras, including commentary, sketches, character designs, all of the hard to find exclusive covers etc. 161 pages of story and 49 pages of extra content, to be precise. It be big. Pretty much everything is in there; this is the definitive version.

Here's a preview of the book from IDW: Link 

Also, here are various interviews I've done promoting it. Some fun stuff in there, including a back and forth over on CBR with HPD variant cover artist Mr. Declan Shalvey.

Issue 6! (THIS time)

So the sixth issue finally arrives in U.S. stores this week, and in European stores next week! Hopefully you good people will think it's been worth the wait!

Here's a six-page preview for the issue; hopefully people will pick it up and enjoy it!

Thanks again for everybody who waited the extra few weeks, I really appreciate it.

Here are the two covers for the issue, the regular by me and the variant by the wonderful Rebekah Isaacs and Jordie.

All-Comic.com Interview



Here's an interview I just did about all things HPD with the lovely people over at All-Comic.com.

Issue 6

So, issue 6 is supposed to be on shelves today, but... isn't. It turns out that there's going to be a very short delay on the last issue, due to Jordie having to do some unavoidable juggling with her colouring schedule. There's nothing that could be done, and it wasn't Jordie's fault in any shape or form; it's down to several of her other artists being late on their books and that snowballed into our last issue.

Hopefully we'll see the issue arrive next week, as Jordie actually finished our issue 3 weeks ago (and it looks gorgeous), so it shouldn't be too long. Please bear with us, it's another 30-page monster and hopefully well worth the wait!

NYCC Report

So I'm back from the New York show, and man, whatta blast. It was ridiculously hectic and manic as I assumed it would be, but Artists' Alley was a lovely, somewhat-tranquil bastion of peace and sanity in the middle of it all. I was floored by the amount of HPD fans that approached my table for signatures or prints. I honestly didn't expect there to be so many of them! Many people asked about the impending final issue, the hardcover and most importantly; would there be more afterwards? I was tickled by the super-enthusiastic response from readers. Yay!

I have to thank the ridiculously-generous Declan Shalvey once more for letting me share his table after Jordie had been forced to pull out due to deadline constraints. It was the best possible place to be, as I met a huge number of pros and editors that came up to talk to the ever-popular Dec. It was a networkers dream, as he introduced me to each and every one of them.

I sold most of the A3 sized prints that I had over there with me, but will get more printed up before Thought Bubble in England next month. What a show that promises to be. I'll be attending with my partners in crime Jordie bellaire and Dec Shalvey as usual, and no doubt a few of the other Irish heads will make the trip. I'll also have all of the sold-out early issues of Half Past Danger with me, and I'm sure I'll take on a few commissions too. More on that next month.

Right now, I'm finishing off the extra material for the hardcover, and looking forward to seeing peoples' reactions to the final issue of the first series when it ships. The hardcover promises to be a thing of beauty, and it's the most excited i've been about any part of the process, I think.

Onward!
