WESTERNoir Book 7 and other such musings.

Well after what seemed like an age I can tell ya that Book 7 of WESTERNoir
is done and at the editin' stage where alla my typing errors will be rectified...
Well thet's the plan...

That's the cover without alla the titles and such...purty ain't it?

The reason Book 7 took so long is Dave and I bin a workin' on the trade paperback
o' the first four books of Josiah Black...
What we decided to do  was to add a short 10 page tale into the mix (between books 1 & 2)
just ta give folk a little bit more..Plus a whole heap of pin-up pages by a mess
a talented folk.
So thet's at the printers an' hopefully we'll see that beauty in a week or so.
So there'll be more ta come including comic pages and sketches and all sorts a good
Jest come back and ya'll see...

Old art.

A couple of pages from different strips I've done over the years.
1st page to "Straw Men"

I did this for the Horror web site "Split Lip" written by Sam Costello.
There will be some news about this shortly.

Opening page to "Hells Nazis"
This was written by John halfpenny for Accent's Uk Zombie2 book which has now sold out. So if'n ya wanna read this I'm afraid it's a trip to ebay...
Unless...hmmm what am I teasing at.

Both were extremely fun to do.

DemonCon and back

Ain't normally so pleasant when I have ta git outta bed at quarter to five in a morning...
An' especially not Sunday Morning.
But last Sunday I hadda do just that and I had me a smile on me face ta boot.
'Cause last Sunday Dave (that would be West to you folk) and I traveled the lonnng trip southwards
towards Maidstone.
Cause that's where Demoncon X1 was takin' place and AccentUk had itself a table there.

This is the third year Dave and I have made our way to this annual event and both the previous ones were thoroughly we were  expectin' good times this time..
There's usually two of these events a year organised by Graham Beadle, proprietor of Maidstone's premier Comic establishment- "The Grinning Demon" but we only attend this one...
It sorta kicks off the convention trail for AccentUK.
Dave and I decided to head down south earlier than other years (hence the early morning) so we could set up early and get ourselves a good look around...
We normally just manage to arrive as it opens...
So we did and arrived with time to spare...even finding a car park that backs on the back of the Royal Star Arcade ( this is where the con is held)...So a bonus...
We were well ready for 11 O'clock when the doors opened...

And once them doors opened I don't think we stopped much at all...
New customers...
Returning customers.
Folk talking about Dave's bespoke Lego pieces...
(see Dave's blog fer details here )
All in all a rather splendid day with cracking sales...
Always good to see satified readers coming back for more and that they did...
and then some.
There may be bigger cons out there but none so friendly and welcoming with loads of heart.
Gotta thank Graham and his team for all the hard work in making Demoncon such a
Ya'll can see  here
all the photos of the day folk have posted.
We already booked fer next year, we that keen to return.

Dave (that would be Mr West) and I are off to Maidstone on Sunday to attend Demoncon X1.

It'll be the third year Dave and I have attended, become an Accent UK tradition really to start off the year of Conventions.

It'll be a long day as we set out at 5.30 in the morning and get back about 10 ish but a good time is had by all.

We'll be launching "Tales of WESTERNoir"2 on the day and it'll be the second con where we'll be selling WESTERNoir Book 6.

Comic Heroes January 2016

WesterNoir gets a good mention in the latest issue of Comic Heroes thanks to Mike Garley.

Mike talked to Dave (West) as an independent creator about the implications and challenges of producing an ongoing series.

Following on from the issue before Mike continues his Creating Independent Comics feature and it is well worth reading if you're starting off.

Well, actually there's insight to be gained even if you've been creating them for a good few years.
