Christmas deadlines for ordering from my UK shop.
In my UK shop I have a few things you can’t get elsewhere - various prints, personalised books, teatowels etc. I’ve also got all my Giant Days, That and Murder She Writes books in stock, some of which won’t be on Topatoco until the new year. I ship all this stuff myself, and if you want it by Christmas and you’re outside the UK, I would strongly advise you to get your order in by Thursday morning GMT (the 5th). If you’re in the UK, the sooner the better, but the final deadline is December 17th. After that, I will be nailing the doors shut until the new year.
I’m sorry not to be able to offer postcard drawings or small commissions this Christmas. Pressure of other work, alas. If you want a character drawing, your best bet is to order a personalised book.
A Bad Machinery Christmas at Topatoco
With the giving season imminent, may I make a small suggestion? Give Bad Machinery - The Case Of The Team Spirit to someone you like a lot. Packed with new pages, extra items and added polish in a luxurious large-format book, it’s ideal for just abut anybody. Give it to the young, give it to the slightly older, give it to the considerably older - I have met readers of all three stripes and none seemed disappointed.
If you’re in the USA, Topatoco is my vendor of choice - it works out best for me if you buy it from there. But you can get it everywhere - if your local comic shop doesn’t have it, ask for it, they can order it for you. When all else fails, there’s always Amazon.
I also have an array of new tshirts - pictured below.
New Mini-Adventures, New Deals, New BRITANE
I’ve just added Giant Days 3 to my store. Giant Days 1 is back in print too. BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! I’ve also got a host of new combo packs allowing you to mop up some of my best stories at a price that’s right.
You want me to draw something in them and sign ‘em to you or a close personal friend? That’s okay too! I spoke to a doctor and they said that these self-contained yarns are an ideal gift for someone you want to impress.
Thought Bubble 2013, Nov 23-24
We are only a week and a bit away from this year’s Thought Bubble Festival in Leeds! Thought Bubble is Britain’s best comic convention, it gets bigger every year. Plus it’s in Leeds, not London, a treat for anyone who enjoys the fact that England is a country and not just London and some extraneous fronds.
I will be at table 144 in the New Dock Hall. Where’s that? HERE:
I will have the following items, in ascending price order:
RAW LOVE FOR FANS (free)
Badges and stickers
Giant Days 1, 2 and ALL NEW ISSUE 3!
Murder She Writes and THAT
Postcard sketches 4U
Prints in a “variety of sizes”
Bad Machinery Vol 1 softcover and hardcover
Original artwork from the Scary Go Round epoch
I hope to see some/all of you there.
