Wow, it has been an embarrassingly long time since I've updated this. A lot has happened - I've done two issues of CABLE for Marvel (11 and 12, 11 came out last week). One issue of PHONOGRAM: SINGLES CLUB has come out, with another to follow shortly. I've done a piece for GOTHAM GAZETTE: BATMAN DEAD? for DC. And I've just got back from NYCC, which was tremendous fun.

Oh - I update Twitter a LOT more than I update here, so if you want to follow me there, feel free to do so: Twitter

As I don't have the coloured and lettered jpegs for CABLE, here's some of the inks for you (out of sequence).

From the Phonogram Blog:

What's this?



Crikey. It looks like a second edition. The press release from the mighty fingers of Indestructible Joe Keatinge explains all...


Mckelvie And Gillen's Phonogram 2 Spins A Sell Out

Thursday, December 18, 2008 - Barely a week after release, artist Jamie McKelive and writer Kieron Gillen's music-fueled PHONOGRAM 2: THE SINGLES CLUB #1 has sold out at a distribution-level with a second printing on the way.


"Clearly, we're overjoyed," Gillen said. "When you do a book as personal and warped as PHONOGRAM, you're always slightly worried that no-one else will care. To have it come out, review phenomenally and actually sell out in a week... well, short of Kenickie reforming or Jamie getting a magical eraser which turns Bristol board into gold, it's about as good as it gets. We'd go on a tour across the world to shake the hand of everyone who rushed out to buy the comic, but we've got a comic series to finish. Hopefully something as sappy as 'Thank you' will do instead."


PHONOGRAM 2: THE SINGLES CLUB #1's success follows the first series' multiple sell-outs and phenomenal critical reception. However, Gillen and McKelvie took a very different approach from PHONOGRAM VOL. 1: RUE BRITTANIA by not only telling a self-contained story in each issue, but also choosing to have the series in color for the very first time. Additionally, they're joined each and every issue with back up stories featuring special guests like LOVE THE WAY YOU LOVE's Marc Ellerby and THE WITCHING's Leigh Gallagher.


PHONOGRAM 2 #1 2nd Printing, a 32-page full color comic book for $3.50, will be in stores soon. PHONOGRAM VOL. 1: RUE BRITTANIA (JAN071929), a 152-page black and white tradepaperback for $14.99, is available now!


So thanks for everyone who's got a copy. As the press release says, there will be the lovely blue edition shops shortly. Definitely push your shop if you want one - I strongly suspect even if this sells out, we won't be able to to afford a third print run.

PHONOGRAM: THE SINGLES CLUB #1 in stores today!

Dec. 10th, 2008 | 04:57 pm

(Or tomorrow if you're in the UK.)

Here's what Kieron has to say about it:


So, after months of indeterminable rambling, we finally release. The first issue of PHONOGRAM: THE SINGLES CLUB is available in North America right now. It's out in the UK tomorrow. It looks like the fine cover above. You can buy it in a comic shop. If your comic shop doesn't have a copy, do mention it to the retailer, and they'll be able to order it for you. No, really.


Oh - here's the first three reviews:

Ifanboy: "...there are comic titles over the years like Strangers in Paradise, and Stray Bullets hat exemplify the magic that can be produced within the comic book medium for unique and different reasons. Phonogram clearly belongs in that grouping and is my most recent example of just how much fun comic books can be..."

Comic Book Resources: "“Phonogram 2” ultimately represents a huge leap forward for both Gillen and McKelvie's craft and the audience the series is capable of reaching."

Comics Daily: "There’s as much wit and imagination in a Gillen/McKelvie collaboration as you’ll find in present day comics, and for that alone they demand to be read."

Warren Ellis on PHONOGRAM: THE SINGLES CLUB

Nov. 6th, 2008 | 10:16 pm


I just read the abovenamed comic, by Kieron Gillen
and Jamie McKelvie. It comes out on or around
December 10. Make a note. Here, I'm even linking
you the cover:

http://www.phonogramcomic.com/blog/?p=97

Save up your local equivalent of three dollars fifty.
Because if you don't go out and buy this on or
around December 10, you essentially fail at comics.
I've just read this thing and I've got an ache in my
chest and I'm looking for something to hit because
the bastard Gillen has outwritten me. Also, McKelvie
has turned in the art job of his career. This comic
makes them both Premier Division.
