Bubbles O’Seven: Baboon Taker

The second instalment of the excellent Bubble O’Seven is complete!

Another successful kickstarter from Grainne and the Bounce Comics team gives a new adventure, this time featuring the art of Lee Killeen. In the words of Bubbles himself: “MI7 have been scanning the London area for the whereabouts of Mr Fluffy. One would think it would be simple enough to locate the whereabouts of a cat endowed with opposable digits. Alas, the feline fraternity is a secretive one. We can, however, rely on the street-strolling gutter hounds to roll over on their furball nemeses when a nice piece of steak is in the offing.”

This issue features an epic cover from fellow Bounce team member, Andy Clift.

Bubbles O’Seven: Dr O

The star of Dr O, Bubble O’Seven, is described by his creators as having an “unassuming simian suaveness that permeates the air around him”. But they also suggest that “maybe he’s just an ape in a suit”. Well, the issue was successfully kickstarted in March, so we are about to find out.

The first issue of the wonderful new series from Bounce Comics members Grainne McEntee and Matt Rooke, Bubbles O’Seven is finished and ready for the printers. It’s been an enjoyable journey so far, I am also working on the title logo for Bubbles, but this first issue marks the start of series which I anticipate being a huge amount of fun to work on.

The Kill Screen

The Kill Screen Logos

A title change and a logo re-design later and Mike Garley announced our upcoming comic series with Josh Sherwell, The Kill Screen.

The Kill Screen - Cover New

There is more information about this awesome story over on Mike’s website, including a 10-page preview. I designed the logo and will take on lettering responsibilities for this exciting new journey in which I look forward to reuniting with a long-time collaborator in Mike and getting to know Josh (with whom me and Mike worked with in VS Comics) better!


Pride Origins – Bear & Fabman

Started lettering the third issue of The Pride yesterday, the first of which were the 2 origin stories that are included in each issue.  This time around it was the Bear and Fabman’s turn, some beautiful art, and well thought out short stories to help inform the larger universe they are creating.  Favourite part for me was coming up with the logos! The Pride is available from their online store.
