After such a long time, we’re very happy to say that we do have a new book coming.
As yet un-named, what we’ll have is an Anthology of 5 4page stories with videogames as a theme. The games we play can spark imaginations and these stories all come from those Virtual Worlds we spend so much of our time in.
The likes of Street Fighter, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, Resident Evil and Assassin’s Creed are all influences for this title and we’re excited to have it set for release later this year. For now, here are two sample pages.
One might ask, are you guys going to pack in the whole comic creating thing? Fair question and the answer is No… we’ll keep at it…
Still without a new book, we nevertheless wished to take part with 2018 Dublin Comic Con so once again, we set our sights with gathering and moderating a Panel of Writers. On Sunday 12th August 2018 I took the moderating position and was lucky to have 3x Great Writers willing to take part, who were:
Small Press Panel. L-R: Seamus Kavanagh, Eoin McAuley, Leeann Hamilton, Kinga Korska, Kevin Keane, Hugo Boylan, Paul Bolger, Ciaran Marcantonio.

We hit up 2016 Dublin Comic Con once again with A Life in Defence. Our original plan was to launch a second book at this event… but Life got in the way. It’s actually kind of funny how different comic creating is at both Professional and Independent level. Secret Wars (2015) saw delays, The Dark Knight III is experiencing delays and so too will Civil War II…
I say the above only to make ourselves feel better. We were disappointed not to have our second book ready but we did take comfort from the many people who stopped by our table to say Hi. Many asked about our next book and while we were sorry to disappoint, it was quite encouraging for us to see so many people eager to see more for us as a collaborative team. Continue reading
