A LIST OF MY PUBLISHED WORK

 

Publishing dates are as accurate as I can make them, but I can't guarantee them all. This list will be updated from time to time as more data becomes available.  That is, as I unearth another mouldy box of old comics...

IN ADDITION, MY COMICS HAVE APPEARED IN COMIC BOOKS AND MAGAZINES TOO NUMEROUS TO COUNT, BUT INCLUDING:

FORTEAN TIMES - THE MAGAZINE OF UNEXPLAINED PHENOMENA. DENNIS PUBLISHING. I've been associated with FT since 1974, when I first met the magazine's founder Bob Rickard.  He was publishing the magazine from his bedroom with a photocopier.  My then-girlfriend Hermione and I subsequently took that flat, with it's wood-paneled attic room, where we had many interesting psychedelic evenings.  My PHENOMENOMIX strip has appeared regularly in FT since 1979.  Perhaps.  I'm not very good with dates...

FIESTA - GALAXY PUBLICATIONS. FIRKIN THE CAT, written by Tym Manley, has appeared in every issue since 1980.

PSIKOPAT - EDITIONS DU ZEBU (PARIS), published FIRKIN and other strips of mine through the 1990s.

MYRKKY - EGMONT OY (FINLAND), publish FIRKIN regularly, along with many other strips of mine.

MC2 - The Midlands Comics Collective have published these collections of comics, including contributions from me: MC2, 2006 THE MIX, GHOSTS, 2007.

GRAPHIC CLASSICS. A series of comic books published by Tom Pomplun at Eureka Productions which I would recommend to anyone. Each 144 page volume deals with a specific writer of fantasy, horror, mystery, adventure, etc. and presents their stories as comics by the most interesting of contemporary cartoonists. Well worth investigating! I have illustrated stories by the following writers in several volumes: Robert Louis Stevenson, Bram Stoker, Jack London, Robert W. Service, Rafael Sabatini.

THE BIG BOOK OF... A great series of comic books published by Paradox Press, (DC Comics) New York. Each 192+ page volume dealt with a different aspect of modern culture, in comics drawn and written by the most interesting contemporary creators. I have stories in the following volumes:
The Big Book Of... WEIRDOS; DEATH; SCANDAL; LITTLE CRIMINALS; WEIRD WILD WEST; THE UNEXPLAINED; FREAKS; BAD; WEIRD LOSERS; URBAN LEGENDS.

ILLUSTRATION WORK

WALKER BOOKS.
I illustrated the following children's novels for this publisher between 1994 and 2000.
FLASH EDDIE AND THE BIG BAD WOLF by Sam McBratney.
CREEPE HALL, RETURN TO CREEPE HALL, CREEPE HALL FOREVER by Alan Durant.
JEREMY BROWN OF THE SECRET SERVICE, JEREMY BROWN AND THE MUMMY'S CURSE, JEREMY BROWN ON MARS, ME AND MY BIG MOUSE, DIRTY ROTTEN TRICKS, TOTALLY UNSUITABLE FOR CHILDREN, THEY MELTED HIS BRAIN by Simon Cheshire.

THE NAKED ARTIST.
I illustrated Bryan Talbot's scurrilous and hilarious collection of Comics World anecdotes in 2007, for MOONSTONE PRESS.

2RunningOutOfRoad.jpg
RUNNING OUT OF ROAD 1982, WHICH BIKE? Publications. A book collecting the wild motorcycling adventures of Which Bike? journalist Mark Williams, heavily illustrated by me. I did a lot of motorbike work around that time, even had a Honda 90 for a while until my biker friends stopped me riding it before I killed myself.
