The End

TL:DR: Follow the newsletter for updates on what I’m up to.

I’ve decided it’s time to mothball the site until I can find time to get it redesigned to something with its own distinct purpose – namely, something more stationary, ala Warren and Jamie.

At the moment, it’s basically just an extra task on the To Do list to port content from the tumblr to here. As such, the tumblr remains for my generalised blogging. At least at the moment, twitter is me in chatting mode, though I’m considering stepping back from there as well.

The Newsletter is basically the direct replacement for the Workblog, in terms of being the MUST KNOW updates, and extended pieces of writing. Follow that if you want to keep in touch with what I’m up to. I will try to entertain.

I’ve been running this workblog since 2002, so the decision of “no, this is not worth it any more” surprises me with how swiftly it’s come on. You wake up one day and figure “That’s enough.”

It’s been fun. See you elsewhere. The workblog is over, yet the work continues for us all.

Out NowThe Complete Phonogram, The Wicked + the Divine 28, Doctor Aphra 6 and Mercury Heat 12

Cripes. What a big week. For more details, I direct you to my newsletter which is best for this kind of thing, but in Brief…


The Complete Phonogram. 504 pages comprising all three volumes (the first coloured for the first time), all the eighty-odd previously uncollected B-sides and all in an oversized hardback format.

If you want it digitally, you can get Phonogram from Comxiology or Image.


The end of Imperial Phase II, where there’s a party and lots of things happen. Next month is the 455 special, the month after that is the collection of Imperial Phase Part 1 and we’re back with the next arc in July.

That’s Elsa Charretier’s cover, but Jamie and Matt have done one too.

If you want it digitally, you can get it from Comixology or Image.


End of the first arc, where Aphra continues to make sensible life decisions.

You can also get it digitally, if that’s your thing.


And, after some delays, the final issue of Mercury Heat 12 drops. I’ll miss this. You can get it in shops or digitally.

Hope you enjoy them.

Out Now: Uber Invasion #3


One book out today, being Uber Invasion 3, which is probably the most classically Uber issue I’ve dropped, being primarily focused on a single battle engagement. 

Available from your local shop, or Comixology.

Writer Notes: The Wicked + the Divine 26



Out Today: The Wicked + the Divine 26 and Doctor Aphra 4

A big issue, this, both in terms of events and pages – it’s 3 pages longer than normal due to (er) me writing it longer and not realising until it was too late, and then Jamie adding an extra page for extra motorbike. Something for everyone in this, I think. Also HOT NINE PANEL GRIDS.

Oh – there’s also two other covers for this, one very beautiful by Nicola Scott and the other one (er) less so.

You can get it from your local comic shop, or digitally either from Comixology or direct from Image. You can read the preview here.

As Beck once sang in the 90s, where’s it AT-AT? It’s here, in the fourth issue of Aphra thinking things through properly and not accidentally making everything worse constantly.

It’s available from your local comic shop or digitally. Preview here. 

Lots more about this week’s comic and what we’ve been up to in the Newsletter. Do read and sign up. 

Out Today: Uber Invasion #2

I wrote this in the newsletter about this one…

It’s an especially horrible issue, but one I’m intensely proud of. It’s one of those rare books that I think may actually be unique for its genre, and the logical end point of the line of thinking that’s run through all my work in superheroes. Namely, a disinterest in the people knocking over the buildings in favour of those who have just had a building knocked onto them.

It’s also one which you could read entirely by itself, if you wish to dabble in these dark waters.

…and that sounds about right.

Available from your local shop, or Comixology. There’s a preview here.

Out Today: Doctor Aphra #3


Third part of Aphra goes happily into action adventure temple exploring mode. Highlights include: not keeping up on current affairs. needy droids! Wookiees, winning! Archaeology! Stuff! Things!

It’s available from your local comic shop or digitally. Preview here.
