Me Myself and Ben 10

At the exact point my failing brain had forgotten that I'd scripted Ben 10, this book arrived in the post from IDW. I checked. I script a couple of stories featured inside.

Gabriel Trade Paperback

On sale now is the Gabriel TPB. A world where angels and demons are an everyday reality. The concept of faith is no longer needed. Presently, a demon wreaks terrible and sickening havoc through the streets and tenements of Glasgow, but for Stewart Gabriel, this isn’t the highest priority. He has personal demons to contend with of his own.
Gabriel is a true story set in an alternative Scotland. Written by Jim Alexander (that's me that is) and drawn by David... Hill (Luther: Echoes of  the Hammer) & Mick Trimble (Bloodfellas).
This 68-page trade includes an all-new Gabriel story 'I am the Insurrection', which follows Jesus who visits the Earth for the day with dramatic and at times hilarious results. The book is available for a knock-down £5 plust P&P at the Planet Jimbot online shop at:
