OMEN 1.5 inks for OVERLOAD

Little while ago Martin Conaghan, writer of Burke and Hare (graphic novel) and Fallen Heroes – on which work on Issue 3 is about to begin – asked if I’d help him out. His colleague Geoffrey D, Wessell had a short story involving a monster designed by Jacen Burrows no less to be released in the new OVERLOAD.

I know nothing about OVERLOAD – except that it’s an anthology publication (Indy) and this is the first issue so there’s an element of blind faith involved here.

However the script itself is a bit marvellous and a bona fide dream for an artist. Never get the chance to draw the whole world!!

Moon's Song of the Week: Chemicals by The Violet Bones

I caught these guys at Proud Camden last weekend and enjoyed their set so much that I figured I would make them this week’s song.

Violet Bones are a 4 piece indy/rock band who play very catchy, short songs that draw heavily on the early days of punk. They sound a bit like The Ramones, perhaps with a bit of Libertines blended in for good measure and it’s a fantastic combo. I’ve always had a soft spot for these kind of tracks because they’re so unpretentious and just get right to the point. Hope you enjoy it it.

You can hear more of the Violet Bones’ music on their youtube page.
