All our offers and stock list for LAKES COMIC FESTIVAL, PLUS which titles are almost all gone!

Hey guys! here's the FULL LIST of the stock we'll be bringing to THE LAKES INTERNATIONAL COMIC ART FESTIVAL this weekend!

IMPORTANT! Quite a few of our titles are now running low, including the original HARDBACK of BAGGAGE (just ten copies left outside the kickstarter) the original small paperback of MONKEY NUTS 1(for those of you that are collecting that format) and The Art of Stranski books (which come with THIS FREE A3 PRINT exclusively at the show) are dwindling too, not many left! 

We'll also have a VERY LIMITED NUMBER of my two big sketchbooks with us, and you get a FREE A4 ORIGINAL piece of ART from my sketchbooks with each one sold. The sketchbooks went reeeeally fast at Thought Bubble, so get to our table early if you want one of those! No pressure :)

PLUS! if you buy one or more of our books at THE LAKES FESTIVAL this weekend, I'll do you a free A5 head sketch of one of our characters from one of the books you buy.

The exception to this rule will be that for families that attend who have several comic-loving children, they'll EACH get a sketch :)

Oh, and don't forget we're doing a LIVE COMIC MAKING SHOW on the SUNDAY!

Scroll down for a massive list of the stock we're bringing to the show, as well as all our other offers!

Wonderful Stranski musings by Nick Prolix, Panel x Panel and ReaditDaddy!

As our new Kickstarter is well underway (THANK YOU everyone for giving it such an amazing start!) I wanted to share with you guys two wonderful pieces written about my previous Kickstarter, The Art of Stranski. MASSIVE thanks to ReaditDaddy and Nick Prolix, for not only taking the time to share their feelings about the books, but also for communicating their own versions of what Stranski is to them in such a beautifully descriptive  and compelling way. Stuff like this is what keeps me drawing at 3am in the morning :)

You can read the Readitdaddy review HERE!

And Nick's review appears in this month's copy of PanelxPanel magazine, and you can read it on his site HERE, or you can scroll down for a sample below!

Enjoy!

And Stranski will return :)

MONKEY NUTS 2 + MONKEY NUTS 1 EXTENDED EDITION KICKSTARTER is NOW LIVE!

RIGHT! Here we go...
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1378058646/monkey-nuts-2-monkey-nuts-1-extended-edition



The Book

"Monkey Nuts 2 is the madcap sequel to The Etherington Brothers' all-ages comedy adventure comic book Monkey Nuts. It is a 76 page full colour softcover book measuring 11.6 x 8.2 inches. The series follows Sid and Rivet, a Monkey/Robot crime fighting team doing their best to defeat a never-ending stream of crackpot weirdos on an island smack-bang in the centre of the Bermuda Triangle. It is the most ridiculous series we ever made. Both Monkey Nuts books were completed nearly a decade ago, but book 2 has NEVER been published … until NOW!"
You can read a BIG chapter from Monkey Nuts 2 for free RIGHT HERE!

Get ALL our HARD TO FIND TITLES in ONE PLACE!

Many of our books are very difficult to get hold of if you live outside the UK, so to help you complete your collection, as part of the Kickstarter you can also get…

- MONKEY NUTS 1 NEW EXTENDED EDITION (72 pages, softback, full colour, 11.6 x 8.2 inches) 
- LONG GONE DON BOOKS 1 & 2 (both 64 pages, softback, full colour 9.7 x 6.9 inches) 
- BAGGAGE (64 pages, LAST of the out of print hardbacks, full colour, 11.6 x 8.2 inches ).

You can read BIG chapters from ALL these books for free RIGHT HERE!

Shipping costs for customers outside the UK.

For UK customers postage is FREE, but if you live outside the UK you'll need to add a shipping cost when you pledge, as detailed in the boxes on the right. I'm sorry it's expensive, but these books are HEAVY.

A huge thank you for taking the time to watch the video and check out the campaign!

Now just scroll down to choose your rewards...!
