Strange Kids Club


Just a quick link to a Scream! based interview I did way back in 2011. Strange Kids Club is a website celebrating all that is weird in geekdom. Covering films, comics, animation, toys and a whole host of nutty, nerdy stuff, it's worth a bookmark if you're looking to sate the appetite of your inner child.

Here's the inteview in full. http://www.strangekidsclub.com/2011/10/28/in-comics-no-one-can-hear-you-scream-an-interview-with-tim-west/

Snapper & Drilby in Something Wicked 09


One of the finest publishers of indie comics, FutureQuake Press, creators of the well-known 'Zarjaz' and 'Dog Breath' 2000AD fanzines, have recently released their latest annual horror anthology SOMETHING WICKED. Inside this year's issue is a 4 page story written by your truly and illustrated by the awesomely talented Ben Michael Byrne.

My tale of terror, 'Snapper and Drilby', begins as Inspector Varley, of her Majesty's Police Force, wakes to find himself bound to a chair opposite his main suspect in a series of gruesome murders.

If you want to read the story in full, along with 11 other ripping yarns, head over to the Futurequake Comicsy Shop and purchase Something Wicked 09.

You can see more of Australian artist BMB's work by taking a look at his apocalypse survival web comic Kranburn which is well worth a read.

To find out more about this ace anthology, visit the FutureQuake Blog.
