I saw the news about your comic getting into Previews - well done.

And welcome.
if I went 'round saying I was an Emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!

welcome indeed,
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

Thanks for the welcome, guys and thanks for noticing, Emperor.

PWOG, sure, there's a preview of my book here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/71341480/Sparko-Graphic-Novel-Preview-By-Karl-Stephan

I used to read 2000AD as a kid and have started rediscovering old favourites thanks to the collected volumes that filled the gaps for the progs I didn't get. I just got through all three volumes of the Complete Nemesis the Warlock. Wicked stuff!

Thanks for the welcome, guys and thanks for noticing, Emperor.

I activated your account so did a bit of Googling to see if you were a right and proper individual (you weren't so we let you in ;) ) and found your blog and some of the samples - good stuff and having it printed by SLG is a real feather in your cap.

Woah!  That's some esteemed company you're in - SLG seldom put a foot wrong with their publishing choices*.  Previews of your book look fantastic, congratulations, and welcome!

Lol, thanks for making me feel welcome, chaps. I didn't expect so many people to be into the indie side of things.

@TordelBack - Evan's one of my all time favs too. He's gotten really well known for his most recent Dark Horse stuff, but for me the Hectic Planet work (esp the last two volumes) still owns, and wouldn't look out of place in 2000AD (come to think of it).
