The first, King Kong (1933), has just been edited and posted over at the Adventure Films Podcast blog. Yesterday we recorded our discussion of The Man Who Would Be King, and that will be up in about a week or so. Be sure to leave a comment and let us know what you think!
Apologies this is up rather late today - my website database was down this morning and I couldn't get round to it until this evening. Usually it will be up before lunchtime (GMT) - depending on how busy things are. Hope you enjoy it!
I've updated the shop to include the new badge set. At 38mm (1.5 inches) these are larger than the old set (25mm - sold out) and there are five designs in all. I also had some mugs made, but I'm afraid these are not for sale. I created them primarily as presents for my agent, editor and designer, but I did get a couple spare for a competition at some time in the future - so look out for that.
I believe De Regenboog Orchidee (deel twee) is out this month (I've yet to see it myself) and Silvester Strips are having a special promotion where you can buy volume 2 along with Olivier Marin's beautifully drawn De Godinnen van de Weg (The Goddess of the Road) for just €29.95.
Last week the Christchurch Kids Blog featured three posts on The Rainbow Orchid as part of their Reading Crusade. In part one I answer the question 'what are graphic novels?' and in parts two and three I explain the process of how I make my own comic from script to drawing and lettering.
To end off, something nice! On Monday I will be posting the first strip of a four-page preview of The Rainbow Orchid volume 3. A new strip will be going up three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for five weeks. There will be more preview later in the year and in a few months time a brand new Julius Chancer story will be made available on the web as well. But for now - make sure you come back on Monday!
