Yes, he’s a big fan of the local library! The Library of the Subconscious, of course. This week’s Alby episode, ol’ Figgsy manages to get Bob the Builder and French philosopher, Jean Baudrillard in the same sentence. Has this ever been done in comics form before? And if not, why not?!

I’ve had to keep a low profile on this project for a while, but now it can be told! I’ve been drawing the interior illustrations for best selling author, Darren Shan’s new series of gorily gruesome books for teens, Zom B, the first of which comes out this week, Thursday the 27th!
There’ll be a total of 12 books eventually, coming out every three months or so and I’ve been commissioned to draw the whole series. It’s kind of like a dream commission for me; I get to draw zombie kids eating their teachers and make it as dark as I possibly can. They’re a cracking read too, so for all you zom heads out there that haven’t had the pleasure of Darren’s work yet, or for all those countless Shansters who’ve just happened to stumble across lil’ ol’ me’s blog thing, check out this link to the latest news on book launches and where to get your copy of the first book via the website of Mr. Master of Horror himself.
A big thank you to Darren, of course and to Nick at Simon and Shuster for getting me on board and extra special thanks to Hannah Abbo and everyone at Advocate, my illustration agents for linking us all up!
I’m going to be signing copies of The Great Unwashed at The N.I.C.E. Comics Expo in Kettering tomorrow, Saturday 23rd. There’ll be limited edition postcards available for everyone who buys a book! I’ll be on a table with Pauls Rainey and Gravett, if you want to find me.
PS I’m the balding handsome one(?!)
The latest Alby Figgs episode, Fellini, available here at http://wp.me/p2xlpi-1O focuses on Alby’s small parts (watch it!) in movie making history. That’s right missus…
Yes, we’re signing copies of our new graphic novel, The Great Unwashed, at the brilliant Dave’s Comics in Brighton today, Saturday 15th from 1-3 p.m. and the first 100 copies sold receive a limited edition signed and doodled postcard!
Don’t worry, though, no Pig Custard will be available!
