I've been busy, Ma....  

So I've not been around much, but I have a lot to mention. Firstly, hello to all my new readers. It's always nice to see some new faces. And secondly, I thought I'd bring you up to speed with what's coming out soon.

Right then, MILF Magnet hit stores in America today. It's out from Moonstone, and people who have read it think it's quite funny. But then they're not allowed out much, and when they're in their rooms they scream a lot. It's a story that Moonstone offered to me a couple of years ago with the line 'You might want to write this under a fake name' and has one of my favourite lines of dialogue ever in it - 'Now f**k me hard and call me Granny'. Oh yes. Much fun. There was an interview last year that I did with The PULSE about it, and you can find it HERE.

Additionally, at the end of March my five part series Necrophim: Prologue begins. This is, well, the prologue to the later, eleven part series Necrophim: Prodigal Son and is labelled as 'Point Blank in Hell' although some people have misquoted this as 'Point Break in Hell' which gives a different story entirely. It has Seraphin and Necrophim and Lucifer and a vague conspiracy and I have no doubt that the guys on the 2000ad boards who hated Stalag #666 will detest it. But we live in hope. But no matter what they think, Lee Carter's art is incredible.

Also, in April I have a backup story in Amazing Spider Man Family #5 - called 'Treasure, Hunted' it's a jolly romp across the roofs of New York between Spidey and Screwball, a newer addition to the Spider Man family and was immense fun to write. Also in April is the release of the collected Doctor Who: The Forgotten by IDW, which looks spangly and nice, and sparkles and glitters in the sunlight like sucky Twilight Vampires.

In May, I have a 22 page Doctor Who one-shot out called Doctor Who: The Time Machination that features Victorian Torchwood hunting the Doctor, HG Wells and a man named 'John Smith'... It's a sequel to a Sixth Doctor tale and a prequel to a Fourth Doctor tale, and is drawn by the amazing Paul Grist. I also have the collected trade of Hope Falls coming out, the critically acclaimed and Eagle award nominated story that I created with long time chum Dan Boultwood. This is a bit of a personal crusade for us, as we need as many people to buy this through Diamond as possible, and for more information we've created a Facebook page HERE so please spread the word, tell your friends.

In June? Well, in June we have the release of Outlaw: The Legend Of Robin Hood, the 144 page Graphic Novel that Sam Hart and I have been working on for almost three years now. It's a beautiful piece of work and has already been announced as a Junior Library Guild Award Selection in the USA, which means it will be in every library in the US. Which is quite big.

And then in July we have the big one, as my ongoing Doctor Who series starts with IDW - beginning with the two-part 'Silver Scream', set in 1920's Hollywood, with Charlie Chaplin...

So. As you can see this is going to be an interesting year. And these are only the things I can announce at the moment. There's plenty more coming, believe me!

The Doctor Who one-shot you speak of, will it be easily attainable in le UK? Only Rich and I have had issues with getting The Forgotten and have ended up waiting for the trade on that (which I didn't wanna do cos issues 1 and 2 were awesome)...

Ha, Charlie Chaplin! Spiffy!

That one-shot with Paul sounds fascinating: he's the ideal artist for that period.
