Was one of those days, so thought I'd try something a bit 'uplifting' and unusual by normal From Above standards :)

Issue 2 arrives

The first 200 printed copies of Issue 2 have arrived in preparation for January shipping. Stoked to get the books done so quickly after completing the first book. This reinforces my confidence in adhering to the Quarterly release schedule I've set for the book.

Review: NanCanonical Comics Podcast - Episode 191

REVIEW: Was stoked today to have Issue #1 reviewed by the guys at NonCanonical Comic Podcast. They do a great review of the book on episode 191. Personally I'd listen to the whole podcast as the guys are quite entertaining but for those impatient folks wjo want to fast track to the review it kicks in around the 25:50 mark. Big thanks to the guys for their review.

Just in case you were in any doubt as to the quantity and quality of comics that are produced by the Australian Industry, The Ledger Awards has their long list of nominees of books produced and published in 2013. There's some amazing books in that list and I'm been pretty chuffed to have been part of it with my first issue of From Above. Check out the list of books, there's some staggering good reads in there!

From Above Pin Up by Brad Virgo

Working for a toy company I have the opportunity to work alongside some amazingly talented people. I have had the pleasure of working with the crazy talented Brad Virgo for the last 8 years. The guy is an amazing talent and has generously illustrated up a pin up of Kira that will be featured in Issue 2. You rock B-rad!
