John Robbins - The Well Below

I really enjoyed John Robbins' latest comic 'The Well Below'. I think it is my favourite of all his comics that I've read. It has two short cartoon stories, and then a long text piece 'The Time Machine' which is really good, and then it ends with a great longer comics story, 'The Well Below'. Very highly recommended, why not give it a try. Here's a link to his website.

Zine Exhibition in Sheffield

I've sent some comics along to the D.I.Y. Summer at Site exhibition, workshop and events in Sheffield. Sounds cool. It runs from the 23rd of August till the 7th of September at the Site gallery, Brown Street, Sheffield. They are setting up a new Zine Library there too. I sent some comics for sale and some for the library.

'Flying Leaf Creature' First Page

I've finished scanning and cleaning up and arranging the pages of 'Flying Leaf Creature'. Now it's in a newspaper format, finally. This is what the front cover of the newspaper will look like. As soon as I can get enough money together I'm going to get it printed.

Osamu Tezuka - Buddha (volumes 2 & 3)

I've been enjoying this series which I have been getting out from Bolton library. They are ideal books to get out from the library. I don't think I would buy them, especially not while I'm a bit skint, but they are great to read for free. Also it means I can read them quite quickly which feels right for a lot of manga. I hope I can find the rest of the series there soon. These two volumes are about the young Siddharta (Buddha) and his quest to escape his upbringing as a spoiled prince and become a monk.

Scarecrows at the Allotments Open Day

I liked all these scarecrows the allotment holders had made at the Harpers Lane Allotment Show yesterday. I was selling ice cream and cheese there, even though it rained we did really really well.
