Quick Reminder

A short post to remind everyone that my comic strip for the DFC, Dead Pets Society, begins in the Guardian's Family section tomorrow, it'll be in there every Saturday for 8 weeks.

Here's a little teaser from episode two.

DFC Preview Site

I've always firmly believed the DFC needed to have some of the comics strips available to read online, and now they have! Go, see! If you like what you see, subscribe! The DFC is a good thing for children's comics and the UK comic book industry in general. They're trying something brave and new and I think it deserves to do well. Of course, I'm biased, but now you can make up your own mind.

Blurby info bit:

"We've put a new previews site up! There are flashbook versions of some of the strips now up, at our fantastic new previews website! There's one episode of some of the strips, in most cases (but not all!) the first episode, to give people a taster of The DFC. We didn't want to put up all the strips at once so as not to blast people with too much content, but the plan is to cycle the strips round, so that it isn't always the same content. If a strip isn't up now, rest assured it will be appearing in the near future! First episodes of new strips will also be going up, a certain amount of time after first appearing in the comic."

I think this is an excellent move and the previews, though in a Flashbook form, look good and work very well indeed.

Dead Pets Society

I've hinted at it before now but here's the strip, Dead Pets Society, produced for the DFC, will be appearing in the Guardian newspaper's Family section beginning on Saturday 27th December. Should you be outside the UK and unable to obtain a copy of the newspaper then you can usually read it online here, after publication. It's weekly, there's eight episodes and I hope you enjoy it!
