Travelling Into The Future

Travelling Man, the comic shop where I work part-time, is celebrating its 20th birthday very shortly and I designed this illustration to go on posters and flyers for all the cool stuff we'll be doing for the occasion:

This baby scored me some sweet in-store credit which I put towards a copy of Mansions of Madness, a new board game that is part Arkham Horror, part Cluedo, part classic narrative-driven RPG and all parts awesome. The gaming system, set-up and miniatures are all sweet and I know you came here to look at pictures, but check out this video and then go and buy your copy. If nothing else then for the facial hair on Corey Konieczka.

Who needs a weekend in the sun when you could be trying to stop Cultists from summoning a Chthonian in the Chapel, or fighting back zombies in an attempt to find your long lost, possibly dead relative? Nobody, that's who!

O The Horror!

Phillip Buchan, an entirely morally reprehensible filth spewer of the lowest order who has been a friend and close associate of mine for some years now, is putting together an incredible anthology of horror comics, the majority of which he has either written or had some large hand in.

As well as blood-drenched, dragged-up, Lucky-Strike-smoking, mutant orgy punk bands like Zombina & The Skeletones and Harley Poe, he's also roped old wooly-vest-wearing Fallows into the project, dragging me out of the self-loathing introspective emo vogue I currently call my comfort zone and forcing me to make comics like a real man.

Below is the first page of our collaborative effort, the other three you'll have to read when the thing comes out (more on that later):
