WELCOME TO HOXFORD! Print this out...

A high rez jpeg of a promo poster ( click for the largest sized version ) with the info you'll need to make sure your retailer can order in copies of WELCOME TO HOXFORD #1.

Print this sucker out if you want, give it to your comic store & tell them you want this book, or hell, stick it on your bathroom door or anywhere you like!

Don't trust that the book will magically appear on the shelves, because unless it's ordered in, it may not be!


I'm trying not to give the whole shebang away in one go, but there's a bunch of stuff in the book, from naked ancient old men, cannibals and prison shower scenes to beastiality necrophilia.

And that's before there's any monstery stuff, but yeah, there'll be a bit of that.

WELCOME TO HOXFORD! Print this out...

The Bus Incident

Parked in the red zone, across both driveways for the apartment building...just what you need when you want to put your car in the garage after leaving the office at 9pm.

The Bus Incident

How about that, fuckers.

The Bus Incident

Sigh. We'd just like to put our car in the garage.

The Bus Incident

Putting the Landlord's *attention driver, you are a douchebag or something*, sign in the bus window.

The Bus Incident

The kiddies arrive to see 6 cops shitting on the bus driver and thinking about ticketing him. They didn't. Apparently bus drivers are govt workers in the US. ( They're generally private owner operators in Australia ) So you can't ticket them, just like if a fire truck or police parked somewhere you didn't like. Stiff shit eh?

A vid for the weekend: Iron Sky + Sigg Jones

Been all over lately with no less than 5 people showing it to me the other day. Not least from

And it looks cool. Yes, not all animation has to have singing dancing donkeys and be musicals aimed at people who only recently discovered that a toilet may be preferable to soiling themselves ( Though that demographic is constantly shifting upwards these days, I will give you that. )


And what the hell, this one blows me away every time.

Wormwood Vol 03: Calamari Rising

My precious arrived today.

Signed Comics. Sold Out Comics.

Since I'm now based at IDW Publishing global headquarters, if you happen to order any book I've done off the IDW Publishing online store, from now on they should now come signed by me as well for no extra charge.

And damn, thanks to all who are picking my stuff up. Wormwood TPB just got another 2 printings. ( One is a special Sci-Fi book club edition, the other is simply because it sold out. ) Wormwood TPB volume 02 is sold out from IDW with only a few hundred left at Diamond. And it's not been out long.


Tommyrot, my art book is also sold out. ( The online store has maybe 4 left ) So it should also see a new printing shortly.

Doing a lot of stuff right now I'm excited as hell about, but alas, can't say or show what they are. Yet.

Will show some more Welcome to Hoxford stuff shortly. The rare luxury I have of having a little more time from the start of this one means I have a chance to do up decent cover work and promo stuff ( well at least to my mind! )

Brazillian Artist Icaro Doria

What he's done with the flags is brilliant. See more here.

"We started to research relevant, global, and current facts and, thus, came up with the idea to put new meanings to the colours of the flags. We used real data taken from the websites of Amnesty International and the UNO."
