Spy script.


This is finally happening. I got the script for the long gestating Septic Isle project this week. Andy Winter, who wrote it, and publishes his own stuff through Moonface Press, has done a great job, and I'm looking forward to drawing it, finally. Andy and I first talked about working together on this at last year's Bristol comic con, where it was pitched to me as 'James Bond played by Ray Winstone takes on terrorists', and as a 24 page comic book. The book has now evolved into a 42-page graphic novelette, which has a darker mood now, where our hero goes after a neo-Nazi organisation, so the original four page prologue I had drawn (you know, the motorbike coming off the Blackfriars Bridge and the speed boat) has been binned, as it's tone now doesn't sit well with the rest of the book. I've been told that those pages will be an 'extra' at the back of the book.
This will be the first comic book I've done where all the art in it is mine, and hopefully, it will be distributed by Diamond like the last two Moonface books. This means it'll be in proper comics shops and on Amazon and stuff. So it's kind of a big deal. Let's hope I don't fuck it up.

Hello strangers!
Thanks for the kind words.

I may not fuck up, I could always fuck down, but that's not really a phrase.
