Running Order

Now Massacre For Boys In Colour has gone to the printers and the panic has abated (slightly) I can at last reveal what's actually going to be in it:

Cover - Crusader & Dog by Steven Denton. Logo by Bolt -01.

Walking Wounded: Night of the Big Heat by Chris Denton, Steven Denton & Bolt-01.

The Crusader: Honey Trap by Chris Denton, Bolt-01 and Richmond Clements.

The Diogenes Club: The Game is a Foot by Matthew Hunt and The Wrong Man by Chris Denton, Steven Denton & Bolt-01.

Jimmy Baker Animal Hatmaker: Three Lions by Chris Denton & Steven Denton.

Bosher's Goals: Hands on the Trophy by Chris Denton & Steven Denton.

Badland Rules by Steven Denton.

Walking Wounded: Hot Air by Chris Denton & Steven Denton.

Back Cover: Nazi Zombie by Paul Harrison-Davies.

So in total that's 36 pages (40 with the cover sides) and pretty much everything we've done in colour, including lots and lots of brand new stuff.

Panic Stations!

Too much to do for a proper blog post this week :(

Still, whilst I'm here I will say that I was in Brighton last weekend and ended up in Dave's Comics.

It's a great shop, packed to the rafters with well-selected and artfully arranged graphic novels. Scarcely a tie-in toy to be seen! I wasn't in town to buy comics but couldn't resist and, mindful that someone has to keep the UK economy afloat, walked out with a stack of ABC paperbacks, including Tom Strong 6.

Lovely :)

I'm not going to say anything about this except that it's a complete strip drawn by Steve and it will be in Massacre For Boys In Colour:

Mystery Strip

In other news, I am please to say tht we will be appearing at the Bristol Small Press Expo. Should be fun!

Deadline Deaderline Deadestline

We're getting pretty close to the the Thing now and there's not a lot of time left to make our comic ready. Eeek!

Oh well, at least we're not far away now. Here's the coloured and lettered version of Night of the Big Heat page one:

Night of the Big Heat page 1 again

Thanks to Bolt-01 for doing a great job on the lettering front, as ever!

In other news this week I've now created a Massacre for Boys Facebook group. As I am pretty hardline in my anti-spam stance, you'll never receive an invitation to join the group from me, but that doesn't mean we don't want you! On the contrary, please join now! If you do, I can at least promise we'll not fill your inbox with spurious updates a la some annoying groups I could mention but won't out of politeness.
