Magic of Myths: season two artwork

And now, the Magic...

Work on Magic of Myths: season two has begun in earnest, so while I write the script, Sergio is currently creating the designs for the new characters who will star in the book, and giving the established cast a little polish. He's already redesigned Eve, who has gone through a few changes since season one... take a look, over at http://magicofmyths.wordpress.com/2012/01/13/more-magic-of-myths-season-two-artwork/.


You can buy Magic of Myths: season one, here (http://cbrotherson.blogspot.com/p/magic-of-myths.html) - and there will be a pre-order scheme and previews of season two in the coming months before its summer 2012 launch.

Tick tock goes the Clock

Ok, on to Clockwork Watch

As you may know, we broke our IndiGoGo funding target of $10,000 (thank you so much if you donated or supported us!) which meant we could go full steam ahead with our plans. We were also very grateful to be selected as the best IndiGoGo comic book project of 2011: http://www.indiegogo.com/blog/2011/12/year-in-review-indiegogos-2011-best-ggf-creative-campaigns-1.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+indiegogo_atom+%28IndieGoGo%3A+Blog%29

A nice start, indeed.

The first step is to launch The Arrival – a graphic novel and the main opening of the Clockwork Watch story. I’m currently tweaking the script (as well as adapting the follow-up, Breakaway) while Jen works hard on the artwork. You can read all about our work behind the scenes over at Anachronauts Digest: http://www.clockworkwatch.org/. Clockwork Watch creator, Yomi Ayeni, has done a few entries, as has Jen and I’ve started some entries posts on the writing side of the project.

Yomi also did an interview with Transmedia Talk over here: http://workbookproject.com/culturehacker/2012/01/21/transmedia-talk-39-clockwork-watch/, where he chats about the whole project in more depth.

Yomi is having a lot of meetings about Clockwork Watch, which is likely to be the biggest project I’ve ever worked on, so expect a ton of information and news about this soon. If things start falling into place, you’ll see Clockwork Watch in a fair few locations in the coming months...

Bayou Arcana: Volume 1. Songs of Loss and Redemption news

Let’s kick things off with a little Bayou Arcana, shall we?

As you may already know, Jen and I have been working on Irons in the Fire for an anthology called Bayou Arcana. Bayou Arcana: Volume 1. Songs of Loss and Redemption is a gothic horror anthology set in a fantastical swamp (in the American South) – you can read more about it here, but the good news is that British newspaper The Guardian featured it in a recent news story covering UK comic books, female creators and the gender gap in the industry. Bayou Arcana has a rather unique set up of being created by all-male writers and all-female artists, so it’s getting noticed by a lot of people and organisations, such as MTV and several other newspapers and magazines across the globe.

You can read the article here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2011/dec/28/women-comic-book-sexism. And the good man Lee Grice (from Small Press Big Mouth) scanned in the pages from when the article was printed a few weeks back:




Bayou Arcana is available for pre-orders by our publisher, Markosia, so if you pre-order it before 1st April 2012 you can get £3 off the cover price (£14.99)! This one is going to be popular, folks, so make sure you get your pre-orders in now by heading over to

There’s more to come on Bayou Arcana soon.

Sign of the times

Well, 2012 is here and I'm trying to catch up with the several big projects on my plate. Which is why this 'Happy New Year' is a tad delayed. Sorry.

But despite being only several weeks old, 2012 has been... Well....interesting, shall we say. I'll get to that in the following posts. Stay tuned...
