New comics and signings coming up soon.

Coming this week from Dynamite Entertainment: The Darkness vs. Eva- Daughter of Dracula #2 (23rd April USA, 24th UK and Europe).

"This crossover of dark and demonic dimensions continues as Eva and Jackie Estacado are drawn together by mysterious forces and when they meet - darkness meets darkness and you can bet there's gonna be a fight"


As you probably already know, the Bristol Comics Expo is next month, running from the 9th until the 11th. It's probably the single most important yearly event in UK comics and, naturally, we will be there (along with pretty much everyone else involved in British comics).

We'll be signing both Saturday and Sunday from 1-2pm and generally lurking around the Accent UK table for much of the rest of the weekend. Please come and say hello and maybe get you hands on a signed Raise the Dead hardback or two. ;)


Before Bristol however, we will be doing a little signing back in Leah's hometown of Northampton at Phoenix Comics.

The signing will take place on the afternoon of Thursday the 8th of May at
Phoenix Comics
29 Abington Square,

If you're in the area then please do pop in and say hello.

Tori Amos' Comic Book Tattoo - first press

Comic Book Tattoo cover by Jason Levesque AKA Stuntkid.

Comic Book Resources has a nice big feature/interview with writer/editor Rantz Hoseley over at which also has some really nice full page previews (not one of our pages sadly but you can't have everything).

Apart from our good selves, collaborating with Pia Guerra on Hey Jupiter, the book features work from mega talented folks such as Elizabeth Genco, Carla Speed McNeil, Mike Dringenberg and many, many more. With more than 50 stories in the book, all based upon/inspired by different Tori Amos songs, this is obviously going to be an amazing and diverse volume.

We're certainly looking forward to seeing it.
