Hi everyone,

Marineman issue 2 is released this week, I hope you can pick one up and that you enjoy the read!

It's been a while since my last post I know - mostly down to a combination of illness and Christmas. Still on schedule though, even if it does mean burning the midnight oil!

I'm happy with how issue 2 turned out and for all those who thought issue 1 needed more action - well it's made up for in this issue. All part of the master plan...Insert maniacal laughter right here!

Issue 3 is a few pages away from heading to the letterer and next on the agenda is to get the cover to issue 6 finalized for solicitation. I'm still laying out issue 6 but it's looking like it may have to be double sized to comfortably fit everything in - I'll keep you all posted though.

I'd like to take the time to thank everyone for the support you've all shown me and my creation, it really means the world to me.

It came to my attention that Marineman was a sketch challenge on Deviantart recently, which I have to say was hugely flattering! There was some great renditions of Mr. Ocean in action and it was strange to see him drawn by someone other than me for the first time!

Here's the link if you're curious....

More soon...And happy new year to you all!


  1. Dude, issue #2 was FANTASTIC. I'm on Marineman for the long haul. What a refreshing original comic!

  2. This comic is awesome!!!
    Loving your new style, how do I get a commission ? :)

  3. I am loving your new style too!!!

    I just read #1 and #2 and you're kicking butt on this series!!!

    I can't wait for #3.

  4. Ian or Mr. Churchill if you prefer,

    I just drove the hour drive to Albuquerque, NM to get my copy of issue #2. It was simply amazing. The dialogue, the art, the action (though I didn't mind the absence of action in #1, it was a great issue also). I'm fairly new to comics and glad I am getting this series because I love it. Also being in New Mexico you don't get much water and with the rest of my family in California it is a nice reminder of the beautiful ocean. Thanks for a great book and happy story telling.
