Samurai Slasher 3

Halloween is fun for many reasons but in recent year it has come to mean another volume of the fantastic Samurai Slasher! I think Mike Garley has started structuring his entire year around this labour of love. And it is BLOODY awesome!

As always, Mike gathers a stellar cast of artists so I have an interesting task of trying to fit the lettering to the art. Where normally I might alter the lettering style to suit, this series has its own lettering style that has remained largely consistent across the previous two previous volumes.

This volume did present the challenge of lettering some more less common elements which allowed for something a bit different.

As always the entire series has a larger dollop of SFX throughout which are characteristically on point. You can pick up your copies from  Mike’s web store, or check out his list of convention appearances and then you can pick one up in person, and get it signed at the same time.

“The UK indie cult comic ‘The Kill Screen’ collected for the first time, as a hardcover edition, featuring a whole host of extras!

“The Kill Screen is sci-fi/horror/thriller that explores what would happen to our world if it were infected by computer and computer game viruses. How would we all survive?

“The hardcover collects the original four issues – with a whole host of extras, such as SEVEN additional stories, original sketches, scripts, and guest pin ups.”

The Kill Screen Hardcover Collected Edition

This book features a bunch of new stories which were added as Kickstarter stretch goals and featured and array of art talent to boot. Check it out! I’m looking forward to the conventions in the new year where can start selling these, I can’t wait to get some reaction and feedback.

The Pride Adventures #2

Wrapped lettering and production on the second of my The Pride Adventures books. The TPA series tends to feature guest artists as opposed to the main The Pride series, and this issue holds a few beauties including Dani Abram, Denis Medri, and Chris Wildgoose.
