Out of Time Nominated for a SICBA

Yesterday, amazing news came.

 

Mine and Cuttlefish’s Out of Time has been nominated for a SICBA (The Scottish Independent Comic Book Alliance) for best comic book.

 

Voting opens soon and the winner will be announced at this year’s Glasgow Comic Con.

 

For everyone that has supported Out of Time so far I would like to publicly thank them. It is an honour to be nominated.

Summer 2013

It has been a crazy old summer and with MCM Scotland this past weekend it marked the end. But what a summer it has been!

It started with Glasgow Comic Con that saw the release of iHero, mine and Graeme Kennedy’s new venture. The book soared off the stall along with my other book The Mind Palace where I sold out. The only places you can now buy The Mind Palace are in the few shops that still have this. This was an incredible feeling for me because at last year’s Glasgow Comic Con I helped to make GLoW 1 a sell out and now one of my own books had done the same. Topped with that the success of iHero has been incredible.

 

Glasgow Comic Con also saw Andy Diggle get the chance to read iHero and reply via Twitter that he enjoyed it. This was fantastic news and I was so chuffed that he took a copy and actually read it.

As the summer has continued iHero has really picked up steam, gaining good review after good review with public awareness building to the product. I was scheduled to be at The Edinburgh Book Festival but due to family issues I was not able to get there. Yet my OR team mates Graeme Kennedy and Gary Chudleigh took iHero with them and yet again it sold well. Further iHero was in the Edinburgh bookshop at the event that I am extremely proud of.

 

As August came to a close the reviews continued to come in and I have continued to work on the script for issue 2. Again due to the family issue I missed the morning of MCM but I managed to get there for the afternoon where iHero once more sold very well, with many people telling me that it sounded a great idea and others who had bought it from Glasgow, Edinburgh, a shop or off the internet how much they enjoyed the book.

All in all this has been a fantastic summer for iHero and myself. It has been my first year where I have just gone out and done it with the help of Team OR and I feel it could not have gone better.

 

I would finally like to say thank you to all the support I and my books have received and I hope that you have been enjoying them. I would also like to thank especially Team OR (Gary Chudleigh and Graeme Kennedy) who made sure that even if I could not be there in person that iHero was still getting around.

Glasgow Comic Con

Last year I was on the Glasgow League of Writers (GLoW) table where we sold out of our first anthology in less than two days. At this year’s Glasgow Comic Con, I was all grown up. I was taking my comics Mind Palace, and releasing mine and Graeme Kennedy’s new book iHero at the event. This was a big weekend for me and I can say it went better than I ever expected.

iHero

At Glasgow Comic Con, I will be unveiling my newest comic, iHero. iHero came about around a year ago when me and co-creator/artist Graeme Kennedy met up to discuss working together. It naturally evolved through the meeting where we spent a good couple of hours discussing all the various characters and plots. This was the first time that I had ever met up with an artist before writing the script and I loved it. This book is a true labour of love that is such a collaboration.

After that meeting I went home and wrote the first script. After we both tweaked the script it was time for Graeme to shine with some amazing artwork. Graeme is a fantastic artist and a great colourist too. I see him as the Scottish Jack Kirby. The speed he works is incredible!

Finally good friend Gary Chudleigh has come in and lettered the book.

I hope you enjoy the book as much as we enjoyed creating it.

You can check out more about iHero through the OR Comics website.
