Monster Kids launches on Aces Weekly!


Monster Kids is a strip that myself and Adam Wilmot have been working on since the SCC first started back in 2008. We've produced a dozen short strips but this week our first full-length Monster Kids tale begins in Volume 20 of Aces Weekly, the digital only, comic magazine published by the legendary David Lloyd, artist of V for Vendetta (and Night Raven) fame. 

'Show N Yell' tells the story of the Monster Kids search for the perfect Show 'n' Tell items that will appear in 3 page episodes every week for the next 7 weeks!

You can access the strip by subscribing to Aces Weekly for just a £1 a week. The complete story will also be collected into a stand alone Volume 20 edition which can be purchased in a couple of months for £6.99.

Previous strips published on Aces Weekly icludes work by comics greats such as John Mccrea, Phil Hester, Mark Wheatley, Marc Hempel, Shaky Kane, Herb Trimpe, Val Mayerik,and many more. Huge thanks to David Lloyd and all at Aces Weekly for letting us join the fun and become contributors.

Waun Wen Primary School Superhero workshop



Waun Wen Primary School in Swansea invited me back to do another Superhero workshop. It's always great fun, I go through my portfolio with the kids and discuss all the different kinds of superheroes there are and then we put some random 'superheroey' words together and create a couple of our own. This year it was 'Doctor Dragon' and 'Lightning Lady'. The actual drawing out of the characters is pretty hectic with everyone shouting out ideas and criticisms.
"Give him wings!"
"Draw her earrings bigger!"
"He looks more like a sea monster!"
"That sword doesn't look like lightning, you made it look like electricity!"
Thanks to all the staff and children for inviting me.
