THE MAIN EVENT
Print edition - perfect bound
Cover colourist: Triona Farrell
A short story comic collection largely pieced together in the year 2017. A year that had personal gear changes in the foreground and spiralling insanity political white noise static in the background. Have been very fortunate to reach out to a high-caliber range of writers, some of whom I've worked with before; Ryan K Lindsay (ETERNAL, NEGATIVE SPACE, BEAUTIFUL CANVAS), Lee Robson (BABBLE, FUTUREQUAKE, ACES WEEKLY), Martin Hayes (ALEISTER CROWLEY: WANDERING THE WASTE, GENTLEMEN GHOULS, ABOMINABLE GLORY) and new creative swinging partner Fraser Campbell (ALEX AUTOMATIC, SLEEPING DOGS, THE EDGE OFF).
Having created all the pencil/ink work within (also colouring and lettering duties, unless otherwise stated), was also extremely fortunate to utilise colourists such as Ellie Wright, Chris O'Halloran, Triona Farrell and letterer Bram Meehan in helping to piece stories and elements together.

CHARLIE'S LAST NERVE
Writer: Fraser Campbell
Letterer: Bram Meehan
Meni is a kid who has become used to his reputation as a teller of tall tales, but when he finds out one of the seniors at his high school just might be AN ALIEN, his friends have got to believe him, right?

Risks and challenges
The content for this project is 90% done, some colouring still remains to be completed. I hope to have this wrapped up as the Kickstarter runs live. If there is any delays once campaign is hopefully completed successfully, I will honestly and promptly keep all backers updated.
I have previously worked on two successful Kickstarter campaigns where the product went out swiftly and also additional material such as original commissions were done in a smooth, realistic timespan.
