The Intercorstal: Extension

My next comic is being officially launched at Catford Comics and Zine Fest in London on the 9th December 2018, and is also available for pre-order (and also just normal order, if you're reading this later than 9th December) from

It's a 25 double-page spreads, created by drawing extra content out from the centre of 25 existing pages. On to those spreads I've added text, invoking a haunted dream. I've put a lot into this, so I'm hoping that others will like it once it's out.

"Matthew Goes to an Art Fair," an entry badge comic, by Matthew Collings and Mark Staff Brandl

While this is not actually an Abstract Comic, it so "odd" that I suspect it fits best here. I made a comic-object, a rather "meta-" object in fact, for a show in New York City. I want to do more Object-Comics. I hopüe to soon.

The is an entry-badges comic  object I made with the great London critic, author and artist Matthew Collings. It was on display now in CENTRAL BOOKING Art Space in NYC. This is a vertical version made for ease of scrolling on internet. (and Emma Biggs and I also make quick walk-ons!)

Becasue of the difficulty in adapting it to vertical scrolling, and so i do not take up endless room on the blog, it is best viewed here:

I hope you enjoy it.

As a companion to that book, and also as a standalone comic, I've put together 'Found Forest Raw' which is made up of the more traditional comics pages that I made at the start of the project but for the most part got abandoned. I really like most of them, so am sharing it as wide as I can.
