Win Albion Origins!

We're very pleased to announce that we have two copies of Titan's Albion Origins to give away.


The blurb:

Now starring in Albion, the critically acclaimed graphic novel plotted by the legendary Alan Moore, come four of British comics' most loved - and most bizarre - characters! There's Tim Kelly, a boy who finds the Eye of Zoltec, a jewel which grants him fantastic power; Dolmann, a genius inventor with a legion of crime-fighting toys; occult troubleshooter Cursitor Doom; and victorian escaplogoist Janus Stark! Never-before-collected, boasting a stunning new cover by comics legend Brian Bolland ("Batman: The Killing Joke"), and featuring exclusive new articles exploring the history of these characters' comics, this is another amazing trip into the past!

We're not making it easy this time.

The question is: Which two Ken Reid characters did we base Fred and Martina on in Albion?

Email your answer to (subject: Albion Origins competition) along with your message board pseudonym.
We'll put all the correct answers in a hat and draw the winner out at random.
Competition closes on the 14th of October 2007.

Only registered board members may enter (register HERE).

Best of British! ;)

EDIT: there was rather a big clue in there accidentally. Did you miss it? Too bad.

Haunted Liverpool

I've just received word today that my proposal for a Haunted Liverpool book has been accepted by Tempus Publishing. I have Brian J. Showers to thank for putting the idea in my head and getting me in touch with the company (cheers Brian!).

The book is penciled for a June 2008 release and should be about 100 pages long with loads of photos and illustrations. Exciting stuff, eh? Now all I have to do is write it...

Erm, you don't know anything about ghosts in Liverpool do you...? :-/
