New comic book is shaping up rather nicely.
As is tradition, annually at the Thought Bubble Comics Festival, Joe List, Lizz Lunney (not pictured) and I, drink a drink not common on these British Isles. Every year crowds gather on the Saturday Afternoon at the festival to see the “Revealing of the Beverage” and this year proved both exciting and controversial when Joe List inducted to the “Hall of Fame” a rather foreign concoction labeled “mate-drink”

I’m taking this lot to Thought Bubble in Leeds this weekend. I’m sharing a table with Lizz Lunney. Down the end there, in the middle, can’t miss us. Come on down.
