Issue three of Rol Hirst's Too Much Sex & Violence is out now. As well as two pages drawn by me, this issue features art by Adrian Bamforth, Kelvin Green, Stephen Prestwood, Nigel Lowrey, Andrew Cheverton, Martin Eden and Chris Askham. It's another great issue, so you might want to pop over to Rol's shop and buy a copy.

Bloody typical. I don't publish any comics for years and then three come along at once. Yes, the third comic I have had professionally printed in the last month, Crisp Biscuit Comics #2, is available to buy now (for £2.50, including postage within the UK). This 20-page, colour comic collects another batch of short humour strips, most of which were produced for this blog last year, including The Green C**k Ring's Final Crisis, Rise of the Planet of the Mice, The No.1 Rhinos' Detective Agency, way too many X-Factor-related pages, my short-listed entry for last years Observer / Comika Graphic Short Story Prize, Halloween Parade, and more. I promise not to publish any more comics now for at least a couple of months!

The new printing of Colin Comix #1 is available to buy now (for £2.95, including postage within the UK). The first printing was something I put together using my printer at home back in 2004, and it had a black and white interior, which never looked right because these strips were originally produced in colour. However, this fancy new printing has been professionally printed on glossy paper and is full-colour throughout. And it looks rather nice, even if I do say so myself. This 28-page comic contains a couple of Colin the Rhino strips, the first episode of Twenty-Bore, Who Is Cecelia Doom? and several one-page strips of variable quality. It also contains rather a lot of swearing. While I was putting this together, I found quite a few more unpublished strips from the same period, so I may put together a belated Colin Comix #2 later in the year. Crisp Biscuit Comics #2 went to the printers today, and should be with me by the end of next week, just in time for DemonCon 3.

The new printing of Crisp Biscuit Comics #1 is available now (get one by visiting the Buy Crap page on my website, or by clicking on the PayPal button below). The first printing was something that I knocked out on my printer at home last summer, so that I'd have something to take to Caption (a small-press comic convention in Oxford), but this second printing has been professionally printed on glossy paper and various mistakes from the first printing have been corrected. This is a 20-page, colour collection of some of the one-page humour strips that I produced for this blog last year. As well as several episodes of Twenty-Bore, you will also get to meet Peter Pentel the Amazing Spider Man, Cheryl Coal Tit, and the Green C**k Ring. Also: Amazing Political Fantasy! Crisp Biscuit Comics #2 is nearly ready (I just need to draw a front cover) and should be going to the printers by the end of next week, while the new, colour printing of Colin Comix #1 is at the printers right now (I saw a proof copy yesterday and it looks really nice) and should be with me by the end of this week.
