Issue 1 now on sale in Dublin!

Great news for me today!

Finally got around to getting issue one onto the shelves of Dublin’s premier comic store. As of today Dubcity Comics Presents can be picked up from Forbidden Planet on Crampton Quay. Check out the Irish Comic section downstairs, and tell them I sent ya!(You’ll get fuck all for saying it, but it’ll sound cool!)

All in all, I’ve been buying books and comics in FP since I was about 13 or 14…and was even photographed with a copy of Infinite Gaunlet #1 at the Dawson Street store for the Daily Star many moons ago. 

So, as yo can probably guess….I’m well chuffed!

And coloured…I officially hate colouring.

Decided I needed to re-do page 2 of the new strip I’m working on. Its called ‘Wake up Terrence Eckert’, and should make up the first 12 pages of Dubcity Comics Presents Volume 2. Not going for a single story issue this time around, but the tales will be linked…but I’ll let more info out when I’m closer to a finish.

So before I jump back into the strip, here’s a pin up I put together…has no story behind it, just a random sketch that I filled out and inked.

Here it is….

Think I’ll colour it with the wacom….bit short on practice lately!

Finally, its ready to ship. Dubcity Comics is available.

Hi Folks,

Volume 1 is now ready for sale. Its a snip at €3.50 including shipping, and frankly there’s not to many copies up for grabs so get ’em while they’re hot. Head to the buy them page, and off we go!

Cheers,

AL.

Wow, just realised how long its been since I’ve posted anything up here. Well, despite seeming like a lazy bastard I’ve actually been keeping busy.(Mainly watching episodes of Columbo, great stuff!!)

So the comic has eventaully arrived, I’ve been touting it around the shops in Dublin, hopefully I’ll get some good news regarding locations for sales soon. There should also be a number of reviews online soon, I’ll post links…providing the are good that is!!

Other than that, I’ve begun work on volume 2. Stepping away from the stand alone horror style that was book one, this is going to be a more anthology style comic. I am proposing to have one main story of twelve pages, a back up tale of six to eight pages and a few pin ups of the characters thrown in. In the style of the old 1970’s fanzines, don’t you know.

The main story is virtually done, apart from digital clean up and lettering…was going to start today but I’ve torn muscles in my shoulder so no point making things worse spending hours in front of Photoshop. Looks like a bit more Columbo for me!!

London beckons in the morning, Super Furry Animals gig tomorrow night, then a few days sight seeing….lovely!

Here’s some pages to keep ya going….remember, its not the finished piece!
