An Update

It seems that one of the challenges of having your own website, which you run alone, is keeping it regularly updated. When you have regular columns on two other websites, scripts for various films and comics you have to keep plugging away at and promotional duties on completed projects, it can be hard to find the time. Still, it’s all part of my chosen career path, and even if it’s only small updates, I’m going to endeavour to be posting here once a week, at least.

With that in mind, here’s a round up of some other things I’m involved in which you can find on the Web.

First up, for my weekly column over on Sidekickcast, I wrote a piece about the so-called “Superhero Fatigue” which is apparently plaguing film-going audiences. I, personally, don’t think this exists. You can read more here.

Over the weekend, my girlfriend, Lisa, and I went to the cinema to watch How To Train Your Dragon 2. I’d only seen the first film for the first time a few months ago, but I’m now a confirmed fan of the franchise. You can read my review of this excellent sequel over on Chaos Hour by clicking here.

Dynamite, the graphic novel I’m working on with musician Kevin Pearce and artist Shaun Speight, is proceeding apace. Co-written by Kevin and I, it’s designed to tie into his upcoming album of the same name. I plan to do a more detailed post on the book somewhere down the line, but it’s been a very interesting project to work on. There is now a Dynamite Facebook group, which is the place to go for previews and news about the project. You can join it here.

Finally, the other comic I co-write, Stiffs, also has its own Facebook Group, which you can join here. You can also buy issue #1 on ComiXology here (if you could rate it too, we’d appreciate it), and get physical copies or PDF downloads of all three issues here. There’s also a print available in the store by our artist extraordinaire, Gavin Mitchell. Gav’s shown me the pages he’s drawn for issue #4 so far, and it’s looking good.

Next week, I promise to post something more interesting.
