My new comic LADDER is really here.

It premiered at Leeds Alternative Comics Fair on Saturday - and I'm delighted to say it sold out by lunchtime... Or perhaps it was afternoon tea time.

Here is the cover:

And a peek at Page 1:

I'll reslice, restaple and restock into my Etsy shortly.

And a quick thank you to everyone who came down to LACF2 and made it even more fun than the first.
John Allison, Adam Cadwell, Helen Entwistle, and Ben Clark sure brought some serious smiles.

Did a few colourways over 2 designs:
And a selection of background pattern swatches to boot.
