The Bullpen

Last year was a fantastic year for me in the world of comics and I plan on making this year just as good if not bigger. The first project I have to tell you about is myself and the talented Tim Bird joining forces once again to provide you with The Bullpen. The Bullpen will appear in Avery Hill Publishing’s Reads Volume 2 Issue 1 and I am very excited to tell you that this story will continue on into the next issue of the book. This is the first time that I have been able to do a serial in this manner and I am very excited about it.

Here is a wee snippet of Tim’s art off of the first page:

Tattie Bogle

2013 has been an incredible year for me. It has seen Reads Volume 3 get published with mine and Staticgirl’s story, Gifted, apart of the collection, I have released my own collection of short stories known as The Mind Palace that received critical acclaim and saw me sell out of all of my issues at Glasgow Comic Con leaving only a select few shops with issues.

Then at Glasgow Comic Con I released iHero, mine and Graeme Kennedy’s limited superhero series that looks at the question what would happen if you could get superpowers like apps through your smart phone or tablet. We released issue 1 and like The Mind Palace it has received both critical and commercial acclaim with another two issues in the works.

Later this year Tales of a Lonely Planet will be released; an anthology put together by Stu Perrins where all the proceeds will go to Cancer Research. Mine and Tim Bird’s story The Terrible Truth About Mimes will be featured.

Now I can announce that I will be apart of a further project. This time working with Watercloset Press on their third issue of Ladies and Gentlemen. I have created the character The Tattie Bogle. Gavin Pollock was on artist duty and I can say that he truly nailed it. Ladies and Gentlemen issue 3 sees various creators come together to tell tales in the Ladies and Gentlemen universe. They could have used the characters that already exist or create new ones. I decided to create new ones with the main villain being The Tattie Bogle as our hero, Edinburgh based lecturer, Doctor Ferguson Flaming investigates.

Broken Frontier reviews Reads Vol.3

The nice people at Broken Frontier have reviewed Avery Hill’s Reads Vol.3 that I am apart of.

 

Here is what they said about the story that myself and Staticgirl created, Gifted:

 

while Luke James Halsall and Staticgirl’s ‘Gifted’ was, at heart, a fairly standard tale of super-powers gone awry I was nonetheless rather impressed by a couple of quite neat visual storytelling tricks in this four-pager.

 

Thanks for such nice words. IF you want to read the rest of the review click here.

started really well, great art, nice idea…both Halsall and Staticgirl have promise.

I really appreciate the comments Richard.

Reads Volume 3

This year I am going to be apart of a lot of interesting projects. So I thought I would start by telling all you lucky people about them.

The first thing I will be apart of will be Reads Volume 3 by Avery Hill Publishing. Reads is one of my favourite anthologies out there and I am truly honoured to be apart of this collection.

I have joined forces with the great Staticgirl once more (we worked together on the Hoodie 1 and 2 cover) to bring you a four page story entitled ‘Gifted’

Reads Volume 3 will be out in the coming months and I hope you all enjoy mine and Staticgirl’s story.
