Stan Lee Excelsior award Launch event

We were very lucky to be performing last week at the Stan Lee Excelsior Award Junior launch event, hosted by the fine folks at Ellis Guilford school in Nottingham. Many thanks to Katherine Davison and Paul Register for having us there, and to all the many young readers from a multitude of primary schools who were in attendance!

Epic art by a young Kickstarter supporter!

Check out this pic sent to us from Jez Higgins - it shows an awesome piece of artwork drawn by his son Harry after receiving a copy of my Deluxe Collection 2 kickstarter book! This is what it's all about!

Keep on drawing, Harry, and top work to Jez for being such an excellent dad!

Found in Translation


Morning Internet! Morning Web! Morning friends!

So, this is fun for a Monday.  Despite having made LOTS of comics over the years, we haven't yet been translated into another language.  Crazy, right?  Okay, so issues of Transformers and Star Wars have found their way into Russian, German and French (and possibly more) but none of our own books.  None of our originals as it were.

We're hoping this will change in time as we're extremely keen to share our adventures with the rest of the planet, and it's good to know that a little tiny slice of our work is already heading off to foreign soil.

Let's Make Comics, published by Oxford University Press last September - and illustrated by the stonking awesome Zak Simmonds-Hurn - has just been translated into Swedish!!!























Oooooooooooooooooh!

And THIS is what I look like speaking that wonderful Scandinavian dialect. Who knew I was bilingual?























Jag heter Robin, indeed!

Thanks to all at Oxford University Press for getting this little book over the water and into the hands of those cool Swedish kids!

Long Gone Don on the shortlist for the Stan Lee Excelsior Award Junior!


We're very proud to announce that Long Gone Don has been chosen as one of five books on the shortlist for this year's Stan Lee Excelsior Award Junior! This fantastic award is voted for by children themselves, aged 8-11, so we're as pleased as punch to be on the shortlist! A big shoutout to our good pal and fellow Phoenix foot soldier, Jamie Smart, who is also on the list with his excellent Bunny Vs Monkey!
