Bishop Bashing

New Private Eye #1328 means new illustrated report!
Eye witness account of Church Of England's women bishop vote.
Was one of the most intense experiences of my Private Eye adventures so far.
Out now. Out now. Out now! £1.50

We could be facing a rough time for free speech here in the UK.
It could be a case of actually appreciating the fact that our sordid leaders are cosy with the heads of the major press. That influence could ironically help retain the right to say (almost) anything one wishes in print.
Let's hope for the best.

Your Days Are Numbered, punk. there is this very cool magazine floating around called Your Days Are Numbered. It's pretty awesome actually. The first 3 issues have been full of excellent interviews with comic making people from Bastien Vives, Los Bros Hernandez, Jeff Lemire, Shakey Kane, Frederik Peeters and more.

Number 4 out now with chats with Brandon Graham, McBess, Karrie Fransman, Krent Able, Chris Ware and believe it or not me!
I can't remember what I said in it and I've been given the impression I may regret some of it so pick up a copy to find out

There will be a competition to names the characters on the cover. You'll get a pile of books I hear.

PLUS I've done the cover! Jeepers! PLUS I've defaced the shop windows of Gosh Comics in London to match and promote the mag! Jimminy cricket!

Thanks to Steve and Jon at the mag for making me feel so special.
 My books are selling out and the stock in my 15 room mansion and office has gone so I currently haven't any copies left for online orders. I 'm sure a few London shops still have copies.
Until more are printed, please squirt me an email to and reserve a copy of either Swimming With Shoes On  or Where's North From Here? I'll let you know when they are available to order again. Ta.

New Private Eye extra!

Dog-gone Dangerous! Scene & Heard in the new Private Eye magazine #1327 out now!
I headed out into the parks and estates of south London to find the vibe on those four legged killers roaming through our society known as dogs.
Here is an extra interview that didn't make it into report...
Pick up a copy of the magazine to read the less raunchy report.

No Lying, It's Lyon!

So I have a little interview in Lyon based Zyva Magazine (see below post) and I just received a copy of the new Scarce magazine, also from Lyon. It's a whopping issue and inside there is very cool review of my book and some little drawings too. If you like in depth commentary on all things comic books, buy a copy in shops or online.(It's in French)

To celebrate this sudden love affair with France's third largest city here is a Lyon themed post!

Back in May 2012 one of the book shops I stopped at on my little book tour was Librairie Expérience in Lyon.
It's a legendary book shop that everybody seems to know about. It's very cool (literally too in the stinking Lyon heat). It's a few cave-like rooms with hundreds of drawings on the walls by some of the biggest, maddest, talented and amazing cartoonists.

As I was there to sign books, tradition had it that before I left I should squiggle on the walls too. (I picked a really awkward spot on the ceiling next to Cha, Bouzard, Larcenet, Chauzy, Jason, Guarnido and many others that are way out of my league!)

- They eat things called Quenelles. Delicious pillowy things in thick sauce that rhyme with 'fuckin 'ell'.
- It gets really, really hot in Lyon.
- It's kind of in the south of France. But not very south.

- Lyon has trams.
- Lyon has a big old church called Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière on top of a massive hill that you can go up in an underground funiculaire (2 minutes) and come down in sticky socks (18 hours approx).
- Kings Of Lyon are a Kings Of Leon tribute band and are not from Lyon.

Corporation tax. The public outcry...

Ok, so every couple of weeks I mention that there's this thing I do in a great magazine called Private Eye.
If you haven't had a look already, have a look at the new issue out now and see what the public think of big business not paying their taxes. Just £1.50 and loads of great stuff!
