Some more Nestor Sketches from Anthony O Neill.


Well, we have settled on the designs for the vampires in Nestor and Anthony has sent me on some sketches of how they will look.

First up we have Nestor in all his vampire glory.

And here we have the Feral vampire sketch. These look excellent. I'll post these up on the Nestor Facebook page tomorrow. I do have some more news about yet another comic I'll be working on for Coimici Gael but I'll say no more until I get some new designs from the artist.

Rough cover for Nestor by Kevin Logue.


A quick post. Here is the rough cover for Nestor Issue 1 drawn by Kevin Logue. Just got this a few minutes ago looks great.

Interview and articles over on ICN.


I have done an interview for the new site Irish Comic News. It's been set up by Tommie Kelly and it aims to promote Irish Comics. The interview is here.

There are also two articles on the site one for the Wire and Gas Anthology which features some art by Mike Ball and an article with some of Anthony O Neill's sketches for Nestor.

The cover for Issue Three of Ri Ra is also up for people to check out. That's over on Aidan Courtney's blog.

One final thing the scripts for Nestor are finished and I have set up a Nestor Facebook page. I'll be updating it with sketches and art from the comic. We are hoping to have it ready for Halloween. I am also pleased to announce that Kevin Logue will be working on the cover for Issue One and once that's finished I'll post that up here. The rough sketch for the cover is over on the Facebook page.

Nestor Sketches.

These are some sketches for another new comic we've just started working on called Nestor. It is based on a story by Martin Greene and will feature art by both Mike Ball and Anthony O Neill. The sketches below are from Anthony. We are still just working on getting the look right for the vampires in the story but some of these were so good I had to post them.

We'll be setting up a Facebook page too shortly for anyone that wants to follow the progress of the comic.

A page from Bait by Mike Ball

So it looks like there will be a bit of a delay with the War Comic it will out in July instead of June. In the meantime here is another page from one of the stories in it called Bait drawn by Mike Ball.

2D Festival


This is way too late but just wanted to say we had a great time at the 2D Festival last weekend. It was my first time going to anything like that and I must say it was an excellent few days. It was great to finally meet other comic creators that I known through the interwebs. For the majority of comic book creators it is a solitary job and it was cool to spend a few days just talking to like minded people.

We've got a busy few months ahead of us. The World War One Anthology is nearly ready to be released and I have just started working on a two issue story for Coimici Gael called Nestor based on a story by Martin Greene. That won't be out until the end of the year but we have our two artists on board now Mike Ball and Anthony O'Neill.

Hopefully we'll have them on our table at next year's 2D Festival.
