Thu, 01 November 2012 Hallowe’en Sessions in London

The Hallowe’en Sessions has been on for three nights now and the reaction from audiences and the reviews have been gratifying. The entire run has sold out, so no more tickets are available. We’re hugely appreciative of the tremendous support we have received.
Sean Hogan – our director, and one of the writers – put in [...]

Fri, 02 March 2012 Eagle nomination

Yesterday the final short-list of nominations for the Eagle Awards was released, and much to my delight, Jennifer Wilde, the comic book I write for Atomic Diner, is one of the contenders in the Favourite European Comic Book category. A special shout-out to Stephen Downey, whose artwork brings Jennifer to life, and to Robert Curley [...]

Fri, 17 February 2012 In Dublin and Maynooth

Later today I’m taking the road to Dublin, as Stephen Byrne, Robert Curley and I will be signing copies of Róisín Dubh in the Library Bar in the Central Hotel, Dublin from 7pm onwards.

Tomorrow the three of us will be attending Epic-Con in Maynooth, where we’ll be talking about the project and appearing on a [...]

Wed, 04 January 2012 review and reward

It’s a pleasure to read a perceptive review of one’s work, especially if it’s favourable!
Emmet O’Cuana’s review of issue 2 of Róisín Dubh on Comicbooked.com had me beaming.
I should also mention that the Eagle Awards for the comic book industry are open for nomination at the moment.
I’d love to see a diverse range of writers [...]

Thu, 29 September 2011 recent round-up

I’ve been remiss at pointing toward reviews of issue 1 of Róisín Dubh and Jennifer Wilde, the two comic book series I’ve written.

Liam Geraghty and Craig O’Connor, the men behind the Irish comic book podcast, The Comic Cast, gave both issues the thumbs up.
Lee Grice at the British podcast Small Press Big Mouth gave Jennifer [...]

Thu, 04 August 2011 lucille

On the Forbidden Planet International blog today I have a review of Lucille, the graphic novel by the artist/writer/singer Ludovic Debeurme, which has recently been translated into English and published by Top Shelf Productions.
It’s a complex and impressive book, and one that deals wtih serious themes. It’s very French, and by that I mean it’s [...]

Sun, 26 June 2011 roisin dubh 1 reviews

I realised that I haven’t been posting links to reviews of Róisín Dubh issue 1 on my own blog. I’ve been keeping the other social media updated so sometimes it slips my mind to mention such things on my own site.
Here are the first reviews:

Emmet O’Cuana on Tastes Like Comics
James Bacon on The Forbidden Planet [...]

Thu, 02 June 2011 be part of the solution

It’s no surprise to any of my regular readers that I’ve considered myself a feminist from the moment I understood what it meant. Most importantly, I have always stated that fact without embarrassment or the need for a self-deprecating modifier (‘but I like men!’, ‘but I never burned a bra!’, etc. etc.).
Yet, for me it [...]

Wed, 13 April 2011 land of the giants

People might think there is no cross-over between geeks and fashionistas, but those stuffy stereotypes are vanishing. We’re all digital and cool these days.
By Irish standards I’m almost a giantess, even though I’m not quite 6 feet in my bare feet. Most people see me wearing some kind of heeled shoe so generally I’m hitting [...]

Mon, 21 February 2011 it’s bedlam

Sky has been promoting its new supernatural show called Bedlam, and I decided to tune in for an episode. The premise is simple: an asylum that has been in the Bettany family for hundreds of years has been re-fitted into flats for Yuppies and creepy things begin to happen. This ain’t a new concept, but [...]
