The 13th Doctor!

Here's an advance preview of part of my comic strip for the next Doctor Who Magazine. Yes, it's the 13th Doctor in The Daft Dimension! I think this will be the first time the new Doctor will appear in a strip, albeit a spoof. Don't miss your collector's item Doctor Who Magazine (No.116) when it goes on sale next Thursday, 24th August!

New convention date: PRESTON COMIC CON

I can now reveal another date for my convention calendar as Preston Comic Con have just announced me as a guest for their event. It takes place on Saturday 23rd September at the Guild Hall, Preston, and you can find out more info here:
http://www.prestoncomiccon.co.uk

I have to point out that I did not draw the Beano cover shown on the advert. (It's by Nigel Parkinson.) I can only guess they used a Beano cover to grab people's attention. 

Here's the updated list of the rest of my convention appearances for this year...

Can Team Toxic stop her? Find out in the new issue of Toxic (No.293) that goes on sale this Wednesday, 16th August!

Coming up this week...

There's a new issue of Epic magazine out on Wednesday 9th August, and that means more fun with the class of Hygiene High and Eric Fail

This time, it's the school sports day for the stinky kids of Hygiene High. What could possibly go wrong? 

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the magazine, Eric Fail enters a talent contest as a juggler. Can anything go right? 

Scripts on both strips by Niall Murray, artwork by me. 

Epic No.135, out this week! £3.50. To find out where to buy a copy, use the handy store locator on the website:

Like most UK kids' mags now, Epic comes bagged with gifts. In this case, a water blaster, stickers, and sweets! Here's what to look for in the shops on Wednesday...
