Most of you are aware that I’m co-writing the next Witchfinder mini-series with Kim Newman, and that the amazing Tyler Crook is providing the art, with colours by the multiple award-winning Dave Stewart. I’ve now seen all the art for issues 1 and 2 and it’s terrific. I can’t wait until other people see it too. On top of all of this we’ve been lucky to have Julian Totino Tedesco as our cover artist.

At long last Jennifer Wilde, issue 1 has made it onto ComiXology! You can log in now and buy your digital copy of the comic for an amazing price.

In fact, it’s a little too easy, and on occasion I get carried away. I must admit to a little thrill to be listed among so many of my comic book heroes and heroines.
Jennifer Wilde issue 1 on sale
I was on the phone with Rob Curley in Dublin when he received delivery of the first issue of Jennifer Wilde to the door of SubCity Comics in Dublin. It was a lovely shared moment, even though I was across the country in Galway. The comic book will be winging its way to other venues in Ireland over the coming week, and will be available for sale via the Atomic Diner web site very soon. My thanks in particular to Stephen Downey, the artist on the project, whose fine artwork brings Jennifer and Oscar’s adventures together to life. I can’t wait to hold a copy of it in my hands.
