And lo, the journey of Sam Starborn comes to an end. Thanks for reading!

Yo dudes, I got a comic about everybody’s favourite old-school thrash band, Metallica, in this week’s Kerrang! magazine. They do a ‘komic’ supplement once a year and this year I was asked to be involved. As a teenage Kerrang! buyer and life-long Metallica fan, sure how could I resist
I’m in there with fellow Beano scribbler, Steve Beckett and the guitarist from Good Charlotte ( a comic book artist in his own right – who knew?) amongst others. It’s fun. My strip allowed me to draw one of my favourite bands in a couple of compromising scenarios, sample below!
Check it out if you like rock, Metallica or comics, yo. If you don’t like any of these things… I dunno, there are no words.
It’s in the shops ’til next Thursday or so.
Issue 5 of the Irish language anthology RíRá is out and I’ve got a three page story in it! Here’s the first page:
Apart from yours truly it features a raft of great-looking schtuff from Irish comic talents including Phil Barrett, Eoin Ryan, Fintan Taite, Maeve Clancy, Bob Byrne & loads more. Well worth checking out.
It’s published for school-age kids, so if you know a kid learning the language, or even just interested in it, it’ll make a great gift! You can get it in newsagents throughout the country, and it’s available on Kindle and iPad and for online purchase too – check it out here.
I’ll put up an English language version of my contribution on this site in the new year so look out for that!
Threw this together inspired by my two-year old’s favourite bed-time stories. Every time I read one to him, this image popped into my head. Might actually put together a little story in the original style for fun (as a loving homage, Hargreaves estate legal squad)!
