LAST GANG IN TOWN trade paper back out on OCTOBER 12th!

 Never mind the reviews.... here's the....  LAST GANG IN TOWN trade paper back from DC VERTIGO out on OCTOBER 12th!

It collects all 6 issues of our miniseries,  and also includes the Covers, Character designs, and new Chapter pages!

Written by Simon Oliver, Art by Rufus Dayglo (and  finishes on some pages by Adam Cadwell!) and colours by Giulia Brusco, collected Covers by Rob Davis, and expertly lettered by Steve Wands.

You can also check out the Chapter page designs on my new website, as some were censored by DC. So now you can see what I'd originally wanted.

Order a copy online now. I included a link to Foyles, as they are an actual bookshop. Amazon sucks.
Or go into your local Comics shop and order a copy. We need your support!

Many thanks

Lakes International Comic Art Festival 2016 !

 Just announced!
Kendal, 17th June 2016: Just ahead of tickets going on sale on Friday 1st July, the Lakes International Comic Art Festival is delighted to announce the upcoming appearances by a number of top British comic creators, all looking forward to a weekend of comics fun 14th - 16th October 2016.

Joining the already-impressive guest list that includes Bryan Lee O'Malley and 2000AD's Mick McMahon will be artists Charlie Adlard, Rufus Dayglo and Duncan Fegredo; writer, artist and editor Ilya; and writers Leah Moore and John Reppion.

"I'm really looking forward to seeing a whole town decked out with love for comics," says Leah Moore, of late busy with the exciting Electricomics project, offering an app that allows you to read four stories by some of the industry’s top talents, as well as read and collect stories created using the Electricomics Generator.

"Comics are immediate and the most accessible media there is, so hiding them away in convention halls is a huge shame.

"We are bringing all the kids along so we will be really getting involved with the children's programme, and showing them what it is mummy and daddy actually do for work which is cool. I'm away teaching a graphic novel course at an Arvon Centre this week and have found out my co-tutor Kate Charlesworth and the guest speaker Isabel Greenberg are both going to be at the Lakes, so it will be fantastic to see them again too."

"I'm excited about attending my first LICAF," enthuses artist Rufus Dayglo, who teases that he will, hopefully, be revealing a few surprises at the Festival, along with bring along original art. "It has a wonderful reputation for promoting the Arts, and being a Festival that concentrates on creators. I attend many festivals and conventions around the world, and LICAF is definitely internationally renowned and respected. To be invited is a great honour. 

"Added to that it's in one of the most beautiful places in the world, what not to love?"

"I'm really looking forward to the Lakes again this year," says Festival regular, Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard. "I've attended every year so far and I truly believe that the organisers are trying something different to make it the most exciting convention of the season. It's certainly my favourite show!

"This year I'm teaming up with my friend Dan Berry to do a very special life drawing class for any interested festival attendees who wish to pursue a career in this crazy industry or who simply want to improve their drawing skills."

These creators join the other already-announced guests (and many others) for the Lakes International Comic Art Festival 2016: artist Jordi Bernet (Torpedo and Jonah Hex); writer Joe Kelly (I Kill Giants, Deadpool), Bryan Lee O'Malley (Scott Pilgrim, Seconds), top US cartoonists Luke and Steve McGarry2000AD artist Mick McMahon; artist Ken Niimura, who has designed this year's Festival art; Benoit Peeters, Britain's first Professor of Graphic Fiction and Comic Art, at Lancaster University; and Paco Roca, best known for his award-winning graphic novel Wrinkles.

Also on the guest list in partnership with The Finnish Institute in London are comic creators Hanneriina Moisseinen, Virpi Oinonen, Ville Ranta, Johanna "Roju" Rojolaand Petteri Tikkanen, along with musicians Niko Kumpuvaara and Aleksi Ranta - whose  visit is part of an extension to the Lakes Festival's rapidly-expanding Comic Creator Exchange Program with other major comics events around the globe.
Many more international and British comic creators will be announced over the coming weeks, joining a host of writers, artists, publishers and retailers for a long weekend in the Lakes crammed with panels, exhibitions, children's events and other activities. The town will be entirely given over to comics, with business owners lining up to support the Festival's famous "Windows Trail", giving over store front space to display comics art created by artists and local groups and school children.
The October weekend is just one of a number of comics projects from the Festival on its way this year, which has included the world premiere performance of Black Dog – the Dreams of Paul Nash by Dave McKean that took place in May and will return to Kendal for the Festival.

The boys are back and they're in Bad Company...
Peter Milligan, Rufus Dayglo, Jim McCarthy, and Simon Bowland return to Ararat with one of 2000 AD's most popular series - Bad Company.

It’s been a decade since the vicious war with the Krool on the planet Ararat. Ex-members of the legendary guerrilla unit known as Bad Company are preparing for a ten-year anniversary memorial service. But now their near-mythic leader, Kano, has resurfaced and Danny Franks, Thrax, Mad Tommy and Fly-Trap, stop taking their meds and travel back to Ararat for answers…
You can also order copies with a signed limited edition bookplate at GOSH COMICS website. There are limited numbers!

 Hope you enjoy it! there are over twenty pages of extras, and art by myself and Brett Ewins that we did for a proposed prequel to Bad Company years ago.
