Hello everyone, the Ol'Boar here for another little missive...

It was a full week last week, SHJ2 had just reached the US shores, even though it was shipped to Diamond's warehouse here in the UK about two months ago. I had loads of mails from readers in the US, so thanks for that (its always great to get feedback), and I guess it must be going down quite well over there. I had loads of requests for re-stocks of issue one too. Sadly the first issue sold out some time ago, but I do have a three LIMITED (1 t0 10) original painted sketch editions available. These are $40(via paypal) and available on a first come, first served basis. I can send a jpg of the comic and original art (as an idea of what to expect) to any interested parties.

I did a further two pages of SHJ3 at the weekend --yay. It's tough getting back to drawing after having time out.

STOP PRESS++++If you want to pick up some original art, and have the money go to charity---check out my victorian Hellblazer on ebay NOW. Adrian Brown's Just1Page project is self published with ALL the proceeds going to a very worthy cause, and all art auctioned is printed in a special magazine (which you also get FREE, worth $9) with your booty! Get on there and BID now;) ++++++++

Well that's about it for this week, apart from this little gem---I've been asked to attend the Bristol show in November on Simon Reed's stand----to promote the newly colourised WHITECHAPEL FREAK, alongside Simon Bisley! How could I refuse!

Greetings one and all

I've been away from the drawing board for a week or so, and its liable to be a few more before I get back in the swing of things. I'm stuck with the last seven of so pages of SHJ 3 and I really want it to end with a bang, just can't make my mind up how it should go. After its all done I may even reprint as a smaller format gn. Not sure whether you are all aware but it will be reprinted in glorious colour next year, by the same publishing company that has already printed WHITECHAPEL FREAK ( The aforementioned comic is a one shot prestige format reprinting of the original tabloid edition, from a few years ago. Featuring superb atmospheric computer colour by Phillipe Gaulier (who is currently working on texture designs for the Captain Scarlet CGI film) and a great cover by painting supremo SIMON BISLEY.

If you head on over to Reed Comics tell 'em I sent ya ;)

That's it for now kids
