« on: 16 March, 2018, 02:37:42 pm »
Now on-line, totally free and ready for you to download - the Judge Dredd issue of Journey Planet, the Hugo Award-winning fanzine!

Packed with all-new articles on Dredd, the creators that shaped him, features from the folks behind the Dredd fanzines Zarjaz and Sector 13, plus interviews with Patrick Mills, John Wagner, strips, art, reviews, and much much more!


(Note: if you've already downloaded it, this is version 1.1, with a few formatting errors and typos fixed, and a couple of corrections in the "Introduction to Judge Dredd" section! As a bonus, we've also included a feature that was accidentally omitted from the first version: three graphic novel reviews by David Ferguson!)

Books & Comics / Razorjack: Double-Crossing
« on: 17 June, 2015, 02:38:24 pm »
Yes, it's self-promotion time here again! Today I'm pushing the Kindle edition of Razorjack: Double-Crossing - an original novel set in the world of John Higgins' Razorjack.

It's an action-packed horror / science fiction tale with lots and lots of violence and exciting scenes! (Also contains adult themes and strong language, so this one is not for minors or those of a sensitive disposition.)

The book was originally scheduled to be published in 2011 - and indeed there was a limited edition for the launch; about fifty copies were printed - but for a variety of reasons the project never went any further. So I've decided that it's high time there was a Kindle version!

Check it out on my website, which contains all the necessary links for you to buy it from Amazon, no matter where you are!

Events / The European Science Fiction Convention 2014
« on: 18 August, 2014, 01:44:50 pm »
I'll be appearing at this year's European Science Fiction Convention this coming weekend (22-24 August 2014) in Dublin!

Other guests of honour include Jim Fitzpatrick, Seanan McGuire, Andrzej Sapkowski and Ylva Spångberg. Plus, of course, there'll be lots and lots of other guests (Eurocons tend to only name the Guests of Honour, for historical reasons that escape me).

Do come along - it'll be a blast!

Hi all,

On May 1st my new novel Hunter will be published in the USA! It's the seventh novel in the New Heroes / Quantum Prophecy series, but it's been designed to to work as a stand-alone tale too. To help promote it, I've created a wee video trailer, which you can find on YouTube! Please be kind...  :-\

Love 'n' cuggles,

Off Topic / Irish Comic News Awards 2013
« on: 18 October, 2013, 01:03:35 pm »
Hey chums,

The shortlists for this year's Irish Comic News Awards have been announced, and voting is now open!

I'm nominated in the Best Irish Writer Published Outside Ireland category, as is our very own Richmond Clements. Now, I realise that's a dilemma: Me or His Lordship, which to choose? We're both equally talented, especially me, and we're both fab 'n' groovy dudes. I'm taller, but Rich has more hair. Hmm... Well, I guess the only fair way is to go in alphabetical order by surname.

Other 2000AD folks up for nomination include PJ Holden, Len O'Grady, John McCrea and Brendan McCarthy (the latter two competing in the Hall of Fame category).

Also: 2000AD and Numbercruncher are up for Best Irish Creator Comic Published Outside Ireland.

Film & TV / The World's End
« on: 19 July, 2013, 02:30:10 am »
Leonia and I are just back from a triple-bill of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and... The World's End! We've always adored the first two (Hot Fuzz is one of my all-time top-five favourite movies), but how does The World's End compare?

I know you're all wondering... Well, we LOVED it! It's an absolutely cracking movie with some really great gags, nicely complex and clever story, and absolutely top performances. Definitely a worthy end to the Cornetto Trilogy - highly recommended!

I could be wrong, but I reckon the king on the placard / shingle thingy outside the tenth pub, The King's Head, has Kevin Eldon's face...

Events / C2E2 - Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo
« on: 23 April, 2013, 07:05:05 am »
Well, we're departing shortly for Chicago for C2E2 - the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, taking place from Friday 26th to Sunday 28th!

If you're there, don't forget to visit stall #1030 in the exhibitor's hall for all your 2000AD and Judge Dredd goodies!

Be sure to check out the website for the live streaming of the panel DREDD and Beyond: The Whole Wide World of 2000 AD on Friday, April 26th, at 19:45 PM (Chicago time: in GMT that's 01:45 on Saturday morning, unless I've miscalculated, which is entirely possible given that I've only had about three hours' sleep). The panel's description:

              It’s been an incredible year for 2000 AD with the DREDD movie and critically-acclaimed stories such as Day of Chaos, Brass Sun and Trifecta – but what’s in store for the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic in 2013? Three of our biggest Creators – Andy Diggle (The Losers), Paul Cornell (Wolverine) and Michael Carroll (Judge Dredd) – join Heidi MacDonald from The Comics Beat to talk about why you should be reading 2000 AD right now!

Plus there may be some fairly exclusive - and very exciting - news about forthcoming 2000AD stuff...!

-- Mike
P.S.: Also, April 28th is Leonia's birthday! Please send her lots of presents and / or good wishes. Though presents would be preferred...
