Went to BICS at the weekend and had a great time. Even though it was only a one day show it was steadily busy despite being on a bank holiday. I caught up with all the usual suspects and the Marineman booth had a constant line which was cool...

When I was at the INFINITY AND BEYOND store signing the other week I agreed to draw a sketch of Marineman on the back of their - special shop anniversary Walking Dead comic.

I didn't get the time while I was at the store but managed to find an hour this morning. So here for the first time is Zombie Marineman - and he's still smiling even though he's undead!

Click on the drawing to go LARGE!

There's a comic festival in Breda, Holland that I'm going to be at this year.

If you live in the area or are making the trip then please drop by and say hi.

Here's a link to the show's website...

The Daily Blam! ran a cool Marineman article that went live today, so if you want to check it out then here's the link...

Just wanted to let you all know I'll be at the Birmingham International Comics Show this weekend and my advance order of Marineman trades will be with me!

I only have 22 copies so If you can't wait 'til the official release date then come along and pick one up!
Once they're gone - they're gone, so come early to avoid disappointment...

I'll also have the regular singles too, so if you still don't have a complete set then this is as good a time as any to rectify that.

I've never been to BICS before so it'll be a voyage of discovery and I hope to see you there...

Revised Post!

It's going to be at least another week 'til I get my computer back but I managed to get access to another terminal so here I am!

The really exciting news is that Marineman has made the cover of DIVER magazine - North America's longest established diving magazine, and not only that - they have featured a 6 page spread devoted entirely to Marineman!

How cool is that?!

It's making me feel the way I did when I first saw my work published at Marvel Comics!

It should be on the stands about now I believe, and this is what you're looking for...

DIVER Magazine - The comic issue!

As I said in the previous post, the San Diego Comicon was a rocking show, I got to see hardly any of it as I was at the Marineman booth most of the time, but everyone who stopped by remarked on how huge it was and what a great time they were having.

So many friendly people came by the booth with nothing but support for Marineman and the series. I had a lot of fun just chatting about the character and hearing about the character from different perspectives. A whole lot of families stopped by which was really encouraging as we need as many younger readers to get into comics as possible.

Quite a few Navy people showed up at the booth too who seemed to enjoy the Navy's presence in the series. A very pretty Navy girl from Florida (whose name I can't remember) was chatting to me while I signed a copy of the trade for one of her daughters and expressed that she'd love it if I could come up with a Navy inspired bikini! She was lamenting on the unflattering/unfeminine attire the Navy issue.
So if I find myself with some free time, I may give it a go and post the results right here...!

Anyway, here are a few snapshots from the show and I'll post again once my computer is fixed...

Me, Dennis and his prize!

Same again - different shot...

Me and Image Comics' Todd Martinez!

Richard Starkings' ELEPHANTMEN take Sea Port Village, San Diego!

Cheesy grin and a cool banner...!
