Reteamed with Frazer Irving



Frazer Irving has a new sketchbook available. It features eleven portraits created by Frazer with accompanying short stories by P D Brierley. T Brownhill, L Ryrie, N Wilson as well as myself on four of them. It was a lot of fun.

You can obtain a copy here.

Milestone on AMC



I haven't had the opportunity to watch it yet, but the fifth episode of Robert Kirkman's Secret History of Comic Books focuses on Milestone Media, the publisher behind Xombi, Kobalt, Hardware, and Static, characters that I've written. I have nothing but fond memories of my days at Milestone and the people that are all, still, members of the Milestone family.

You can view the episode here.

31 Days of Halloween - Day 31



The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury

Alfred A. Knopf. 1972


I've written before about how Halloween just isn't Halloween without Ray Bradbury rearing his head somewhere. This year he came in the form of a revisit of his classic YA novel. On Halloween night a group of costumed boys finds themselves being towed along by the sinister Clavicle Moundshroud as he takes them through time on a tour of human's history with death and mourning. All the time they are chasing their imperiled friend culminating in a Faustian deal to save him.

Slight as a story, The Halloween Tree, is one of Bradbury's tributes to eleven year old boys, written as only he can write it. This edition comes with suitably seasonable illustrations by Gris Grimly. If you've never read it before, you really must.
