After a month or so in Cuba, Dundee Borders' sales manager returned full of enthusiasm and I had a good chat with him about taking on comic books in future. Graphic novels with ISBNs are the way to go it seems, so I'll be looking to farm out the "Black Flag" project to a new publisher as soon as I have the time. He also helped me restock the shelves with copies of "Mandrake" and "Maranatha", and I was content to leave it at that for the meantime while I press on with the business of writing, and drawing for fun and profit.
Meantime, here's a sneak preview of the proposed cover for "Venus in Saturn", the prequel to "Maranatha", which links to my Deviantart.com account. The book is coming along nicely and has taken some startling twists and turns of late, setting up the backstory for the sequel nicely. The mind-stretching complexity of it all does, however, make me wonder if I'm capable of writing anything that isn't epic, cosmic and labyrinthine in equal measure:
