The Last Club Vamporama

Hah! So here it finally is!!

I’ve given this a lot of thought. I wasn’t planning to publish it. One of the reasons being that my attempt to do a colour version in Photoshop was looking so horrible (IMO), I couldn’t finish it. There were other reasons. See below the artwork for more details!! (Also, page two etc is below the cut, if you’re reading on the front page!)

Anyhow, finally decided to just put it up here and to hell with it…

One note before you read on: these are “original art” scans, before any clean-ups or adjustment, so what you see it what I drew, warts & all.

Club Vamporama, RIP

While scanning the Darkseid piece I posted last month, I also scanned two new pages of comic strip work that I was going to post on here, but ultimately decided not to. About a dozen people have seen the strip privately, and all but one gave me nice feedback on it (the other one says he will comment on it, too, when he has time)…

It was a strip entitled “The Last Club Vamporama”. And it was indeed a finale… and maybe a kind of reboot, too, but we’ll leave it at that.

“Welcome To The Club”

I was working on the art for some new Club Vamporama pages—an initial run of five, followed by a bunch more. Some of this stuff has been scripted for quite a while, and in fact what would be page five of this sequence was originally started and abandoned back in February 2013! (New version will be all-new, I stress. BTW, the four pages leading up to it, including the two below, are newer scripts anyway.)

Anyhow, the complete strip may or may not be finished at some point, so this might be all you get for the foreseeable, I’m afraid…

Marie Portrait 2019

I’m calling it 2019 because I wanted to revisit a piece I did back in February 2011. I just liked the concept, but the execution was really quite poor—at the time a few people were positive about it, but one person was quite critical… and basically they were right, whatever their motives. It was very amateurish indeed.

Catchup

Long time no see, again. Lots of things have been happening, though, even if they haven’t necessarily happened in the order I’d planned. (For instance, the long-mooted Weekly Webcomics idea didn’t get going. Yet.)

Having assembled a reasonably decent set of film gear in recent months, Steve and I have been doing a series of short items for the film show on Big Centre TV—Steve presenting, me directing & editing. Big Centre is soon to become Made in Birmingham, but hopefully we’ll continue working on this material as before.

The most recent piece, a short extract from a longer interview with Alan FrightFest Jones, which we did in London on October 19th, airs on Big Centre today (Halloween, appropriately). We’ll be uploading it to YouTube fairly soon. Here’s a pic of Steve & Alan.

“Hail Cthulhu!” Redux

New comics! As some of you know, I stopped doing comics after February 2013. During the hiatus I did some other things, including a few T-shirt designs. Anyhow, right now I’m moving towards a number of new projects, including regular Webcomics and a revival of Club Comicana Vamporama.

Yup, Club Com/Vamp is, as of June 2016, exactly ten years old! To celebrate, there will be two new strips; firstly, a reworking of an older strip, below—to be followed shortly by an all-new one!

Compare & contrast time!
