Wolf Country#4 is on sale. After the slow but captivating build-up of the first three issues (garnering 4 and 5 star reviews on the way) issue 4 explodes into delirious and unrelenting action. Down the Tubes describes it thus; "a gore hound’s dream of a comic book."

Amongst the Stars nominated for Best Graphic Novel

Following on from the success of GoodCopBadCop at last summer's True Believers/Eagles awards, I'm delighted to say that 'Amongst the Stars' has made the Scottish Independent Comic Book Alliance (SICBA) shortlist for Best Graphic Novel 2015.

The 64-page trade is written by Jim Alexander AKA me (Metal Hurlant, Star Trek Manga) and drawn by Mike Perkins (Stephen King's The Stand, Astonishing X-Men, Deathlok).  The winners will be announced in Glasgow on the 4th of July.

To celebrate we've put together a wee PDF sampler of the book, which features 5 pages of the story.  This is absolutely free to everybody, so please feel free to share as you wish.  Also, the book is on sale at the Planet Jimbot online shop for a special SICBA price of £5.50 plus P&P.
