Busy, busy, busy here at Gallagher Towers (or spare room in an end terraced house) working on stuff I'll blog about soon.
But in the meantime, please head to the Genre For Japan website, whose charity auction begins tomorrow! You can bid for cool items as varied as signed books, having your manuscript critiqued by an editor, or even appearing as a character in a novel!
I'm contributing the prize of your favourite 2000AD character drawn A3 size (black/white, single character, no background). Item number 99.
The auction ends on Sunday 3rd April.
As you know, I got engaged last November in Tokyo, so I'd really like this auction to go well!

Here's a nice surprise I got in the mail! The 120 page Lovecraft Anthology Volume 1!
It's an interesting side job I took on last year for Self Made Hero, illustrating an 18 page version of H.P.Lovecraft's "The Shadow Over Innsmouth", adapted by my old, old lovely friends John Reppion and Leah Moore.
Definitely different to my usual style, I was asked to do this in colour. I've only ever coloured covers for 2000AD, so this is my first fully coloured strip, so be gentle on me.
As well as our adaption, the book features another six stories, all told by incredibly talented creators, and they are genuinely all fantastic, making a really nice package.
The official launch of the book is taking place on 15th April at the H.P.LOVECRAFT REANIMATED event, held at London's The Horse Hospital.
So ask for it at your local comic book store, book store, or find it online here!
And look out for a feature about the book with interviews with myself and other creators involved, in next months Judge Dredd Megazine.
Here's a few teaser panels....
