HELLO! It’s been a while. I’ll be refreshing this site over the coming weeks as and when time allows, but today I am announcing a shiny new project which you can BUY from next week. Want to know more?
Riding a tidal wave of optimism, your new favourite singer is Prime Minister of Great Britain. Events turn even more unlikely when he and his plans for change meet the shapeshifting lizard people that really *are* in charge of the world…
Basically, this is what happens when you’re watching election coverage and start reading a stack of crazy illuminati/conspiracy theory guff at the same time*.
Lizard Men is a six issue mini-series to be published by Comichaus that is written by me, with art by awesome Italians Catia Fantini (lines) and Chiara Bonacini (colours), lettering by Ken Reynolds and editing by my long-time collaborator Mira Manga. I’m excited. This idea has been bouncing around my brain for so long that to see it as an Actual Thing That Exists is amazing, let alone to see it bought to life by a team as fantastic as this one. If there’s any justice, by this time next year Catia, Chiara and Ken will be MASSIVE. Issue 1 was completed last month and we’re launching a Kickstarter campaign next week – on the 1st November – as a pre-order system for the issue and to raise funds for the printing. Did I mention that I’m excited?
I’m drawing the covers, the first of which you can see – alongside a sample page – below. Click to enlarge.
*Essentially, Jon Ronson’s Them: Adventures with Extremists, John Higgs’ PEERLESS The KLF: Chaos, Magic & The Band Who Burned A Million Pounds were the entrance to a rabbit hole.
