Bad Dog!

The folks over at Forbidden Planet have just posted a nice review of my jolly new comic newspaper from Newspaper Club called “Bad Dog”. Here’s a lovely picture of it:

Well, it’s not exactly new. For one, it’s been out since October (and was for sale at MCM Expo and Thought Bubble), and secondly all the strips are reprints from all over the shop.

Bad Dog was originally an exercise in making me draw something new every day on my Ye Olde Blog (now deceased). I would sit there for five minutes, scribble out a piece of nonsense, then post it straight on the net untouched. Yeah, Rock and Roll dude. I would then collect the best ones into mini-comics and sell them at comic shows alongside my other scribbly wares.

Not everyone appreciated my manic doodles, but some people did, so hooray!

The Bad Dog Newspaper is a bit of a “Best Of” containing my favourites from the two mini-comics; a rare strip from a Zombie comic published by Sex Gore Mutants; the story Freddy the Little Goldfish from it’s own mini and a strip previously only seen on t’internets which was a bit of a fan-favourite at the time (Singing Zebras).

For a while back in the olden days, I also ran an on-going Bad Dog strip involving Sydney being kidnapped for Greyhound Racing. I didn’t end it due to the oncoming juggernaut of Derek the Sheep, but I definitely want to finally finish it off soon and reprint it in some form or another (Along with my Bad Dog graphic novel idea I came up with a couple of years ago. Sigh, if only someone invented more hours in a day…).

If you want to buy one, then leave a comment (I’ll see your email) they’re £4.00 plus P&P (which might be pricey – around £3.00).
