Are You Ready For July 26nd? It's Doctor Who Comics Day - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movie, TV News

Did a quick reblog of this earlier, but I didn’t mention where I’d be, which is in Bristol Forbidden Planet with Rob Williams from 3pm onwards, and then answering questions on Facebook later.

I’m not on Facebook anymore, so that might be a challenge. Maybe I can piggyback off Rob’s - I’m already sleeping on his sofa that night.

EDIT: I said 4pm before - it’s 3pm!



If you’ve ever wanted to get into WASTELAND, the book Chris Mitten and I created together before UMBRAL, this is by far the cheapest way I’ve ever seen:

Comixology are having a massive sale, $0.99 per issue or the first 50 issues for $24.99. That’s 50 cents per issue, insanely cheap.

I bought the whole series full price recently. This is a bargain.

(I wrote the intro for the new hardback, so wanted to read it in one go. It’s startling work.)



Are you an LGBT creator who could use some money to help you self-publish your comic? Then you might want to check out Prism Comics’s Queer Press Grant, now open for submissions!

Prism Comics offers an annual financial grant to help aspiring LGBT comics creators publish and promote their comics. The Queer Press Grant is funded by donations from readers, established creators with the desire to help those just starting out, and fans who want to see more LGBT stories get published.

“It’s an exciting time for LGBT comics creators.” says Ted Abenheim, president of Prism Comics. “Every day there are new artists and writers creating comics which present the wide diversity of LGBT experience. Great works of serious literary merit, but although the comics industry has begun to embrace LGBT comics, it is still difficult and expensive for independent and aspiring comics creators to get their comics into the hands of readers. The Queer Press Grant helps self-publishing LGBT comics creators accomplish this goal.”

Past winners include Megan Rose Gedris for “YU+ME:dream”, Pam Harrison for “House of Muses”, Tana Ford for “Duck”, Christine Smith for “The Princess”, Blue Deliquanti for “O Human Star”, and Hazel Newlevant for “If This Be Sin

Go to the Queer Press Grant page for instructions on how to apply. The deadline for proposals is Monday, September 1, 2014. The grant will be awarded at the Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco October 4-5, 2014.

Prism will also be exhibiting at San Diego Comic Con next month, conducting portfolio reviews, presenting panels, and hosting creator signings.

I had no idea this was a thing, and I’m so happy that it is.
