Art for one of the Wire and Gas stories complete.

So here is the first page from the story Good Boy which I picked up yesterday from Anthony O Neill. Like Mike Ball this will be Anthony's first time being published. The rest of the art in this strip is excellent but I don't think I'll post anymore pages from the book on here. It is a very small anthology so I don't want to give too much away. Ye will all have to pick up a copy of the comic when it comes out in June. It is great to see Martin Greene's stories in comic form for the first time. Myself and Martin are working on a few other projects and we will hopefully have some news about those soon.
Once we sort out the cover which is being worked on by Aidan Courtney I'll post that for ye to take a look at. I'm very proud of this one and that's mostly down to the new people that have gotten involved, they are a great bunch of very talented folk.

Wire and Gas Anthology.First page from Bait.


I have just received the first page for another one of the stories that will appear in our War Anthology. We've got a name for it now which is Wire and Gas. This page is from a story called Bait and is drawn by the very talented Mr Mike Ball. This will be Mike's first comic book strip to be published I don't think it will be his last.

First look at the new comic coming from Coimici Gael.


Well here it is, the first page for our new World War One comic being published by Coimici Gael.
Like I said in the last post these are all Martin Greene's stories that have been scripted by me.
The artist for this strip is Aidan Courtney, anyone that reads Ri Ra will know Aidan as the editor of that excellent book. Once I get more art for the other strips I'll put them on here so keep an eye on here for a sneak peek of the other strips that will appear in the anthology. Here is a link for Aidan Courtney's blog if anyone wants to check that out.

New War Anthology and some more Home Land Pages


I do have some good news to report. We are putting together an anthology. This will be a very small three story anthology with stories all set in World War One. The three stories come from the mind of Martin Greene and have been scripted by me. We have been busy over the last week or two getting the artists for each strip and now we are good to go. The artists in question are Mike Ball, Aidan Courtney and Anthony O Neill. We plan to have this ready for the 2D Festival in Derry at the start of June. Once I'll post some art from the book up here once it starts to come in.

I've also just got some more pages from Dwayne Moloney for the Home Land comic (got to find a publisher for this one) These pages are really shaping up.
