In an effort to offer digital downloads, I've uploaded everything onto Comicsy, a great online marketplace for small press comics. There are PDF versions of the three big comics at 99p each and free PDFs of the smaller ones available here, just for the sake of completeness. I haven't had a chance to explore it myself yet, but I'm stoked that a lot of the small press stuff is collected in one place. I usually only get to see most of it at conventions. Anyway, you can find the Attackosaur compound within Comicsy here.
I've started work on a new comic! It's quite Lovecraftian and will be very different from Devil Executioner. I'll be drawing the whole 22-page beast myself and it should be ready by September/October with a little luck. I think I've moved on a lot since the ropey-looking Attackosaur #1, so I'm hopeful it'll come out looking cool.
Attackosaur Comics is booked in for the MCM Manchester Comic Con on July 20th! This is our first convention in a while - Bristol 2011 was our last one! (above) - so it's gonna be amazing fun to jump back behind the table. We'll be launching Devil Executioner there along with the new short comics Revolutionary Suicide and White Hell. They're available to read online for free here, but if, like me, you hate reading comics on a screen then you can grab a printed version. We were hoping to attend the Comic Art Festival in the Lake District as exhibitors, but we weren't given a table. We'll be there as punters, though, because there are some wicked awesome events lined up.
P.S. Attackosaur Comics is now on Twitter!
G' day! I've finished another comic! This 12-pager was made as my final project at Hong Kong Baptist University. It's a tale about a Victorian explorer who breaks both his legs and becomes trapped in the Arctic with only his sled dogs for company. When the food runs out, shit gets real.
I'll print a load off for conventions, so if you'd rather read a pretty little A5 hard copy then they're on the way. If you think someone you know might dig such a nasty little comic, please feel free to send it about willy-nilly.
Peace! - Mart
It's all done! Think it's been about 3 years since I finished the script, but Devil Executioner is ready to print. I'm hoping to be able to offer it as a digital download at the same time; I'll have to wait and see how that works out. Hope you dig the cover!
Hey! I finished a new comic! It's an 8-pager that I made for a uni course, a documentary comic that I've written and drawn myself (old-fashioned ink and everything!) about the Jonestown massacre. I loved doing a comic that's about something more than my fetish for dinosaurs. Hope you dig it. And, if you do, I'd mega-appreciate it if you could send it about or social networkasize it to other people you think might dig it too.

Cheers - Mart.
I'm in Hong Kong at the moment on a student exchange programme! One of the many brilliant things here is a course on Graphic Storytelling. The final assessment is a completed 12-page comic. My new surroundings have kicked me off my lazy-chair and made me think about trying new techniques. Until now, I've only drawn my own stuff on a computer. Above is my first effort at using proper ink and dip-pens. On top of that, I thought I'd try watercolours as well! It's very scruffy-looking, but, as anyone who's seen me in the flesh will attest, I do love a bit of scruffiness.
We're approaching Devil Executioner o' clock here at Attackosaur Towers. The last few pages are being prepared, then we're onto a cover, and then the Satanic Panic really begins! Above is a clipping from Nic's art. Sadly, and awesomely, I'm gonna be off to Hong Kong for 5 months in the new year, so printing and shipping might prove problematic. However, I've been dying to get this onto paper and into your meaty paws for about three years now, so I'll be damned if geography's gonna slow me down.
This is a short film I wrote and directed at Aberystwyth Uni with my group. Guns, blood, and a cheeky lift from Fulltime Killer.
