Old School

Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

About a year ago issue ten of Hope For The Future was unleashed upon an unsuspecting world. The unsuspecting world didn’t really notice, however, as the only move I made to promote that particular consumer item was to send it to SFX magazine. Fanzine of the Month may be a hotly sought accolade but it certainly doesn’t translate into sales.

So in the interest of Halloween, the credit crunch, and shameless self promotion I have created another animated trailer, featuring scenes from the comic (I use the term “animated” advisedly. Think Captain Pugwash rather than Wall-E). Special mention must be given to the spectacular music composed and created by Rum & Coke. I asked for spooky, rock and big ending, in that order, and that’s what I got (incidentally, the final piece puts me in mind of Ash’s tangentelly Episode Two related angst metal thrashathon?Clones. But I’ve been thinking a lot about clones in general).

The comic can be purchased from our store, or from our American printer Indyplanet.

After the current run of one off strips (early April), we will launch into posting issue 10 of Hope For The Future –  Old School. Here’s a teaser for the comic, soundtracked by some full on theramin fuelled rock, courtesy of our resident musical director Ol.

Shake it, Baby

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Here’s a handy tip for all you English Literature students out there – If you don’t want to wade your way through William Shakepeare’s bloodiest play Titus Andronicus, simply pick up the SFX A-Z of Horror, out this week, and you can see my comic strip adaptation. It’s without a doubt, the grisliest thing I’ve ever drawn, but I think I managed to keep it classy, even when the naked chick gets her tongue cut out. Fun! I guess Shakey was going through a particularly angry phase and decided to invent torture porn 412 years early  – maybe people were taking the piss out of his haircut. “Look”, he undoubtedly said, “it’s the mid to late 16th Century, we all look like idiots!”
