Smoo #5: pre-order now!

EDIT: the deadline for pre-orders is bed-time on Sunday 15th April 2012!

Smoo #5 is available now for pre-order. This comic is about the year I spent living in Falmouth. I’ve been trying to write these stories for a long time now, and this is what finally came out. I’m very proud of it. I hope you like it too. Previews below.

Benefits of pre-ordering: As well as getting a slightly lower cover price, pre-ordering will (problems notwithstanding) enable you to get your copy before it officially debuts at TCAF at the start of May*. All being well, the comics will be sent out at the end of April.

Details: A5, 40 pages of pencil drawn comics.

UK: £3.00

Everywhere else*: £4.00

*TCAF attendees note: if you would like to pre-order the comic and collect it from me in person in Toronto, choose the ‘UK’ option when pre-ordering. It’ll save you P&P that way!


Smoo#4 is now available to buy from my shop. This issue deals, in an abstract sort of way, with being a teenager, and then, years later, realising that for all you don’t feel like one, you find yourself being a grown up. It was written in response to my parents moving away from Marlow, the small town in SE England where I spent my teenage years. Each copy comes with a print of a hand-drawn map of the town and, while stocks last, a tourist postcard and excerpts from the local newspaper, “The Marlow Free Press”. A shorter version was released at Thought Bubble last November. That was reviewed here.

A5, 28pp. White card cover.

£3.00 (UK)

£4.00 (anywhere else)
