This is an old strip re-edited for the Forbidden Planet website, who run a weekly strip by me. The strip I send them is usually the continuing Real Men story, or DownTown (which also appears in The Stool Pigeon). Over the last 3 weeks though I've been somewhat preoccupied - namely by the birth of my son Edward, who was two weeks old last Monday!!

Slovenian Beehive Art

I was just having another look at Sarah McIntyre's blog post about the Stripburger "Honey Talks" box of comics inspired by Slovenian Beehive Art :

"Slovenian farmers have a folk art tradition of painting scenes on the removable front panels of their beehives. Most of the painted panels date between the 1820's and 1880's and feature all sorts of weird and wonderful mythological and religious scenes, and the Stripburger collective used these scenes to inspire a beautiful little collection of English-language comics called Honey Talks."

The examples she shows REALLY make me want to see more of that great 19th Century art (especially the secular ones)!! There's a bit more at

Comix Meeting this Wednesday (6th July)

This Wednesday (i.e. Wednesday 6th July) is the first Wednesday of the month, which means it's time for the monthly Comix Meeting at The Crown, New Oxford Street!
More info here.
It'll be the usual thing : drinking, talking about our latest dreams & projects, and whatever else we're up to, and relaxing in a comix-friendly crowd. Have a drink, read some comix-paper, and discuss underground comix of the past, present & future.
