OMFG - So Much Awesome (Shortest Post Ever)!

Got the final pages of Cancertown through from Stephen Downey this morning. Nic's lettering them as I write this post.

Very excited about this.

What Is That, Three Now?

Just a quick one today, as I'm off for the weekend. Earlier in the week, I was contacted by Richard Vasseur from Jazma Online, to ask if I'd do an interview for them. I got the list of questions yesterday and did my best to get my head around them.

Whether or not I said anything interesting or usable remains to be seen, but I hear they also approached Cancertown artist, Stephen Downey. I'm looking forward to hearing what he's got to say for himself.

... and just like that, I'm gone.

Sleepless in New York: Insomnia Gets Jet-Lagged

Over on the Insomnia blog, boss-man Crawford Coutts has just posted his report of the New York Comic Con. Apparently, there was significant interest in Cancertown, which is deeply cool.

I may have to look into the American conventions at some point. They sound like a world apart from the UK gigs I'm used to. It's just a question of justifying the work I'd have to turn down in order to spare the time. Realistically, the costs have tended to outweigh the potential benefits for me so far. Then again, jealousy is a powerful motivator...

Anyway, highly recommended reading.

Yes, I Know, I'm Sorry...

funny pictures of cats with captions

It's been a busy couple of weeks, and a few people have contacted me to ask where I've been. To be honest, I really don't have much of an answer. I should probably make up something cool and exotic to start building the Awesome Legend of Cy (TM), but the simple truth is that I've been writing.

I know. Shocker.

The scripts for the later issues of Slaughterman's Creed and The Case Files of Harlan Falk are all coming together nicely and I'm eagerly anticipating the final few pages of Cancertown art from Stephen Downey. Scott James' Falk pages are the best work I've ever seen from him (and that's saying a lot), and I've been working with Ben MacLeod on that short story I mentioned a while back for the next Layer Zero anthology from Insomnia.

Oddly, it looks like I'll be putting in an appearance of sorts at the Essex Book Festival next month. Not quite sure how that happened or what I'm going to be doing there, but apparently there's a life-size standee of Cancertown denizen, Crosshair involved. Rock! Here's a quick peek at the adorable little scamp, for reference:

In other news, I note with some amusement that yet another internet searcher has made its way to my website in hopes of locating a "Starship Troopers Sex Part" (note the singular this time). I wonder if this is the same questing soul who was looking for similar items previously, and now finds itself in need of just one more. Or maybe it's someone new, someone who heard that Starship Troopers Sex Parts were to be found here and, not being greedy, only wanted one.

I've made a mental note to add one or more Starship Troopers Sex Parts to the site, because there is clearly some obscure demographic that the rest of the internet simply isn't catering to and that's a damn shame. Besides, I've got dozens of the things lying about the place anyway and I'm really not using them for anything constructive. Well, I've got a Starship Troopers Sex Part propping up a wonky coffee table in the lounge, and there are a couple more I'll probably hold onto for purely sentimental reasons, but I could certainly spare one or two of the older ones if they'll ease the suffering of some poor sod out there.

Well, gotta go. That scene where the creepy imaginary guy starts cutting off the kid's fingers isn't going to script itself...
