I have some news to put up on here. Firstly the Judge Dredd story that I am working on with Owen Watts for Zarjaz is coming along nicely. Owen is about half way though the comic now and he has sent me on the first two pages which look great.
I am going to have a story in Zombies Hi. It is a three page story and it will be drawn by the very talented Kevin Logue. Here is the Zombies Hi Facebook page and you can also pick up a copy of Issue One and Two over on Kevin's blog.
And finally we have a bit of a change up on the Nestor comic. Issue One will not be drawn by Mike Ball as I said before. Mike is now gonna be working on a story set in the Blackstar Universe which will appear in Issue Four of Ri Ra. Taking over for Mike will be Paul McCallan. I have worked with Paul on a past issue of FutureQuake and his art is excellent.
Here are a few sketches that he has sent me of the main characters in the book.

So BlackStar is a comic that I started working on about three years ago and for different reasons it didn't get finished. During My interview with Dave O Leary for Irish Comic News he asked me was the comic going to be finished or not. I think that might have been the kick in the arse I needed to get this one up and running again. So here is what I have so far. Black Star will be a 32 page full colour comic published by Coimici Gael (the same publishers behind Ri Ra) and this time it will be drawn by Dwayne Moloney. I am also pleased to say that Ger Hankey the artist behind Short Sharp Shocks will be working on the cover too.
Also a story set in the Black Star universe will be in Ri Ra Issue 4 before the one shot comes out next year.
Here are a few sketches done by Dwayne during the week.
