Melbourne Armageddon Expo 2013

So that's my first Armageddon Expo done and dusted. To sum it up.... phenomenal! The response to the book has been absolutely amazing. Sales were so far in excess of my expectations it's amazingly absurd. Thank you so much to everyone that came by the table and showed their support. It was an amazing weekend - now it's time to get stuck back into continuing work on issue 2

New Stockist: All Star Comics Melbourne

I cannot stress enough how amazing and supportive the guys at All Star Comics Melbourne have been. Their hosting of the launch was amazing. Troy, Mitch and the crew there are fantastic supporters of the local industry and if you haven't already discovered the gem of a store that is All Star, then you seriously need to get your butts down there and check it out (its a comic lover's heaven!) Troy popped over on the weekend to the stand a picked up a shipment of the book, so if you haven't got a copy then race on down and see the awesome crew there and pick one up! A massive thankyou to Troy, Mitch and the great crew at All Star!

Update: Looking good!

A massive thankyou to everyone who has supported the book. The support and sales have been amazing. For people who are looking for the book there are still a few states that we don't have the book in so far, so if you're looking for the book and your local doesn't stock it let them know you're after it. Alternatively I have been receiving a lot of messages from people over facebook about purchasing and getting the book mailed out to you, so drop a message through to the page and we can tell you how to go about that. For folks in Melbourne next week I will be at Armageddon Expo next week selling the book. Come and say hi at Artists Alley, Table AA45.
So thankyou once again for everyone thats bought the book, to the reviewers so far who have given the book some great reviews, and stay tuned cause issue 2 is already in the works :)

REVIEW: Whatcha Podcast

REVIEW: The second review for From Above is in and this time its from the crew at Whatcha Podcast. Check out Episode 48 for a review of both From Above and Divine Comedy Comic Book (one of the books we shared a launch with). Tune in about the 33:30 to hear the guys review the two books. Thanks to the crew at Whatcha for reviewing and covering the book.

REVIEW - Geek Speak Live

A massive thankyou to Todd and Wade from Geek Speak podcast who gave the book an amazing review.
I was so stoked I couldn't help but do up this little image :)

FIRST REVIEW - Geek Speak Live

REVIEW: Just got the most amazing review from the guys at Geek Speak in their latest podcast (episode #67). It's a five minute plus review on the book (comes in around the 27 minute mark but I recommend you just listen to the episode from the start as the guys are hilarious!). I'm absolutely blown away by the awesome review the guys gave the book (4.5 out of 5). A massive thank you to Todd and Wade for the amazing review and awesome coverage of the book! Don't take my word for it though, go check out the podcast now!

Launch Day Success!

What an amazing launch day. I would have to say that the event totally blew away my expectations!
Firstly, I have to make an enormous thankyou to All Star Comics Melbourne for hosting the event. Not only did they extremely generously let us have the launch there, but Troy and the crew there were awesome in their support and organisation. Thankyou guys because you made the event an amazing one.
Secondly, I'd like to thank my fellow comic creators and their partners who shared the launch day with me, launching two stellar books that made the event a real draw card with three books to check out.
Thirdly, a massive thankyou to all the good folks who came along to the launch, to buy the books, chat comics and support the local industry. It was such a great experience to chat to people about the book, their own projects and just comics in general. Couldn't think of anything better really.
Thankyou as well to the guys at Whatcha Podcast who are some really nice dudes, have a great show and are even misguided enough to think sticking a microphone up to me and asking a few questions is a good idea. Hope I didn't bore you silly, Mike :)

Lastly but most certainly not least, I'd like to thank my wife, Alana, who is both my muse and my rock. Who is willing to support me in all my crazy endeavours and makes me believe I can achieve anything.
Thankyou all. Today was a blast (and we sold heaps of books!!!!)

Hope to see you all there!
