|Left: Timularo (The Collected Timulo)|
Right: Odds and Sods (For Comics Bods)
To celebrate my 21st anniversary as a professional comic artist, I'm releasing two collections of material from my archives for sale from Lulu.com:
Odds and Sods (For Comics Bods) is a sixty-four page collection of little-seen and out-of the way pieces - private commissions, convention pieces, illustrations, test pieces, and 17.5 pages of comics including two experimental colour strips never before published in the English-speaking world!

Timularo (The collected Timulo) not only brings together all 49 pages* of the original Deadline strip for the first time, it includes the 32-page sequel Consequences, concept sketches and character designs for both strips, Who Me? the 10-page first draught of Consequences, first-ever Mark E.D'Sade strip A Fistful of Fingers, samples of Timulo-precursor strips Az!muth and The City Hall Job, a three-page taster of the long-delayed Consequences sequel City of Night, and more, in a tasty 168-page volume, all in glowing black & white.
Normally I'd announce all-new cover artwork or some such, but such was the volume of additional material I produced for Timulo, I've been able provide covers and additional illustrations using unpublished material from the early 1990's.

I'll be releasing both books into the wild† at Thought Bubble in Leeds this weekend - they'll be selling at a special convention price with bonus postcards.
Once the hurly-burly of preparations for Thought Bubble is out of the way, I'll be making these books available via print-on-demand; watch this space for details.
*The final four-page episode of Timulo, originally presented in colour, is collected in black & white in this edition.
†Copies of Odds and Sods were sold in a test run at the 2-D Festival in Derry in 2009, the last UK convention I attended.
