All right, I promise I’ll leave you alone about this from now on. You’ll forgive me for one reminder, I hope – and one that comes with a comic teaser, as well.
Memoirs of the Mysterious is still on Kickstarter and we have only ten days to finish funding the project. It’s a really awesome anthology of suspense-themed short comics, and it’s affordable, too; you can get a digital copy of the entire anthology (about sixty pages of comics) for five dollars. And you can get more than just those comics, too – check out the higher reward levels. You can even get full custom comics made based on your ideas!
Anyway, I talk more about it here, and the Kickstarter is here, and if you want to read some really neat comics and support the independent creators’ market (and me!), this is an easy and affordable way to do it. And I’ll shut up now.
Kickstarter: Memoirs of the Mysterious -
This graphic novel anthology is a collection of short stories in the vein of The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, and EC Comics!
Hey, guys! This is a Kickstarter campaign for a Twilight Zone-themed comic anthology that’s going to be awesome. I have a story in there (written and lettered by me; illustrated by Tony Sedani) and a number of my really cool comics colleagues have worked on the book as well. Take a look, ask me questions if you like, and please consider backing us or spreading the word! It’s definitely worth it. (Not to mention that Giles and I could, unfortunately, sure use the money.)
Also, if you look through the rewards, the $25 level includes a sci-fi punk rock comic by me and Giles, one of the $100 levels includes having me write a 16-page custom comic script about whatever you’d like, and the $350 level includes a custom four-page comic by me and Giles about anything you want! Check it out!
Giles and I were in Manchester last week and ran into Legitimate Superhero Captain Manchester at his comic book launch (find him here on Twitter, here on Tumblr, or buy his comic book here to support Forever Manchester). Brilliant night.

lndtbr asked: Jey do you know much about reggae, could you rec me some good reggae?
I know a bit about reggae! I don’t know if you could describe it as “much,” but I know a little. Definitely, though I can recommend some good reggae!
I did put a few songs in here (which, to be fair, is doing a bit of a disservice to the reggae genre, throwing it in with first-wave ska), but music this rich in history and meaning deserves its own discussion. Thank you for asking about it.
Here is your mixtape; I hope you enjoy it!
Most of this is older reggae from the birth and early evolution of the genre, and it’s roughly chronological. There’s some more recent stuff near the end, as well as a number of international groups (from the United Kingdom, various African countries, even Denmark), but modern reggae is quite a different sort of music and that may not have been what you were looking for. If you have questions about any of it, or if you’d like more or want to try out different styles of reggae, let me know!
