Hello guys! Happy Holidays/New Year/Whatever. Here's some things

1. APOLOGIES
So uhh, yeah, sorry for not doing any comics for... two months?! Woah didn't realise it was that long! Yes, SORRY SORRY SORRY I took a little break after working flat out to try and get Volume 5 ready and printed for Thought Bubble and then I was dealing with some stuff and lost all interest in... well most things for a while. Things are better now, there's a new year on the horizon and I should be back on track shortly. So yes, sorry.

2. SCENE CITY CHRISTMAS SPECIAL
You may or may not have seen in the week build up to Christmas, the website updated EVERY DAY with the Scene City Christmas Special. If you missed it and would like to catch up, you can read it all starting from here.

3. DIGITAL SALES
As mentioned in this post, I've been having a digital sale recently due to maybe having to stop selling digital books. A recent update from Comicsy has shed some light on this and the fact is I now WILL be continuing digital sales. All it means for now is that I'll have to MANUALLY email the file over to you once paid for. Irritating but hey, it's a work around for now. I will be continuing the sale until new year regardless. Click here for digital downloads for only 50p

That's all for now, have a cracking new year!

You may have heard recently about some changes to the way VAT is going to be handled in the UK for digital products. No? That's funny because no one else seems to have either and now we're in a bit of a pickle!

You see some very complicated new regulations mean that digital sales will now be liable for VAT in the country you are selling to rather selling from. This means submitting a quarterly VAT something or other with a lot of complicated information I don't know anything about and ARGH it's so complicated I don't really understand it all that well.

So in all likelihood I will have to stop selling digital comics from the start of January to avoid a lot of hassle and expense. I'm sorry but it's just not feasible if this goes through. You can help STOP it go through with this petition if that will even help.

Since this may well be the last few weeks I'll be able to sell digital copies of the comics and as a bit of a festive fuck you to these new rules, I will be selling digital comics for just 50p until the end of the year!

That's right, I've reduced all digital version of Orful Comics and Scene City from £1 to 50p. THAT'S HALF PRICE!!

You can find all the digital versions of my comics here or, if you maybe want a physical copy for yourself or for a friend since Christmas is coming up, head here for some good old VAT-free paper

Thanks and happy hols!

Hey all, how's it going?

It's been a whole year of waiting but finally, the incredible Thought Bubble Festival rolls around again! A whole week's worth of comics events in Leeds, culminating in a two-day convention spread across THREE different halls on the 15 - 16 November.

I'll be there both days at table 134 in New Dock Hall and guess what...

ORFUL COMICS WILL BE TURNING 6!

Who'd have thought it eh? Six years old and what a place to celebrate. Someone better bring me some cake! Here's where to bring it:



You might have to fight your way past that fierce looking shield lady but it'll be worth it! I'll have with me all current issues of Scene City and Orful Comics, mini comics, bundle packages, original art badges and...

A BRAND NEW BOOK!



That's right, it's finally here. A brand new Orful Comics collection featuring all the strips from the past year.

I'm dead excited about this one. I personally think it's the best yet and I can't wait to get it back from the printers and into your lovely hands. I've had great fun with the comic this year and I can't thank you all enough for your continuing support. You make it all worthwhile!

SO yup, 15 - 16 November, Leeds Armouries Square, Table 134 in New Dock Hall

Here's the proper maps with exhibitor listings for New Dock Hall, Royal Armouries Hall and the brand new TB Teepee

Hey hey hey happy Friday all-a y'all! I got some bits for you today!

First up, there's a new comic over on the website. It's the final comic for the new volume of Orful Comics, coming out at Thought Bubble in November. Go read it here

Next, I'm at MCM Comic Con this weekend! I'll be there selling all my usual junk at table CG12. Here's the details in the blog.

Finally, I done an interview with the lovely people at Silver Sprocket Bicycle Club about comics and music and stuff. Go check it out here

Anyways, better pack my case for MCM I guess. SEE Y'ALL THERE!

Hello BAF buddy! Nice to bump into you. It's been a long time since I've done anything BAF related. Will you be at the October MCM?

Most certainly! With some luck I'll be behind a table this time around, provided I can get enough material together over the coming months. You going to any cons in the meantime?

Not got anything big planned. Might be doing the Intl. Alt Press Fair in August and probably Birmingham Zine Fair in October but nothing major until MCM Oct
