No I don’t believe in that whole “The Mayan’s predicted the world would end in 2012″ thing, I reckon they just thought “that’s a nice round figure to end this calendar on… if we’re still about we can fix it later!”

But anyway that’s not what this post’s supposed to be about… I just wanted to let you guys know what’s going on. I’m not going to whine on and on but some of you who follow my Twitter will know that the second half of 2011 was pretty rough for me and I’ve had a pretty crap start to 2012 if I’m honest. I’ve either been ill or stressed out from the day job; neither of which are ideal for getting any comicking done!

The idea was for me to quietly get on with the next issue while you guys enjoyed the crossover section of Dead End Friends so there wouldn’t be this horrible lull in between issues like there was last year… Of course me actually planning something for once meant that something had to go wrong instead so my tablet laptop died and took everything I’d done in a couple of months with it.

As it stands I have about a third of “Times Like These” written and I’ve started on inking the first page but the main thing I’m working on right now is tweaking “A Quiche Too Far” so I can put it together in a book for you guys to pick up in my new shop. I’ve just had a great weekend in Cornwall with the amazing Beth Walls for our sixth anniversary which has left me feeling refreshed and inspired to get cracking!

So yeah, I guess what I’m saying is bare with me… there’s new stuff on the way and you’re gonna love it, I promise!

Stay tuned!

P.S. Did I mention I have a new shop?!
