HERE to the awesome 2000AD fan site EVERYTHING COMES BACK TO 2000AD where I've an interview up, talking about the latest Defoe release, the EXCLUSIVE on what my future project AQUILA is, as well as what else I've got coming up in the future! It's Leigh-tastic!!!

FINALLY! The moment you'll tell your grandchildren about (or if you're just stuck with a bunch of cats, just tell them, I'm not going to judge)!
The second collection of DEFOE entitled QUEEN OF THE ZOMBIES is officially released today (13th October) just in time for Halloween, from 2000AD/REBELLION.
Once again, written by comics legend, Pat Mills, and illustrated by "The Most Handsome Man in Comics",um, me, this collection expands on the 17th century zombie world of Defoe and his brethren, introducing the likes of insane clock punks, freaks and even angels!
Personally speaking, this book is THE book to get if you're a fan of my work. I'm genuinely proud of it and can't wait to show it off. As with the original collection, I've gone back to update certain panels that I thought needed tweaking, but no where near the amount that I redrew that first time around.
Again, there's going to be a sketchbook section at the back (18 pages!), including the pencil version of what I envisioned the cover could be for this book, before it was decided to stick with the original zombie baby image (you can find the making for that here).
So please head to your local comic book store and tell them I sent you, with a little wink. They won't give you a discount or anything, but who doesn't like to be winked at?
If you're not lucky enough to have a local comic store, you can head to Amazon through the link at the end of this post (though ignore any mention of a hardcover--they cocked that up--it's paperback only). You can't wink at them unfortunately.
Thanks for your support guys, I really appreciate it. I'll have an interview posted on another site soon with even more info. Hope you enjoy the book!
