Step right up! For one week only, folks...

...the DFC will be in Tescos throughout the land from Wed 26th Nov to Tues 2nd Dec. They're making it available for the one week only as a marketing exercise. Here's a pic of the cover, featuring a Mo-Bot from Neill Cameron's Mo-Bot High...

This is an opportunity to take a look at this subscription only, weekly children's comic without having to commit to a subscription. There's a great variety of comic strips in the DFC and I think it's worth investigating and supporting. It's all original material, nothing licensed, nothing based on already existing cartoons, toys or brands and its mixture of silliness, adventure and fun is a refreshing change from most of what's out there already. I should mention that I've had some involvement with the DFC, I coloured the first Good Dog, Bad Dog, strip by my good and hugely talented friend, Dave Shelton and I continue to be involved but I don't think I can say much about that just yet.

As much as I might like to.

Nick Hornby interviews David Simon

Came across this interview with David Simon from The Believer magazine in 2007 - Simon is the main man behind the brilliant HBO TV series The Wire. The interview is conducted by the author Nick Hornby and is well worth a read. If you haven't seen The Wire, apparently the favourite show of America's new president, then I only have one question to ask: What are you doing here?
