Okay so the holidays are over for another year and it's time for me to get blogging again.

So it's 2011 eh?

Normally i start the new year off with some resolutions... but as i almost never stick to those i thought this time i might as well talk about some of the stuff i will be working on throughout the next few months.

Of course Ramsden is the main thing.

It involves a lot of intensive research so i have a stack of books to read through before i can start writing. I'm making progress tho. In the meantime i know enough to be working on an outline... and i think i might have the bare bones of one that i don't hate. I'm pretty excited about the new ending i came up with the other day actually.

Altho i won't be doing the art for Ramsden... i'm working with a fantastic artist but i don't want to jinx it by saying too much too soon... i am working on character designs and i'll be posting some more of those soonish.

Aside from Ramsden i have a few other ideas that have been simmering on the back burner.

Probably the one that is closest to becoming a thing is the one with the 1920s vigilante. It's a sort of British hero pulp that i've been describing to friends as Bertie Wooster crossed with Batman. It started out as a throwaway idea and snowballed into something i think might be quite fun and interesting.

I also have an idea for a WWII espionage comic... a description which doesn't even come close to describing all the things going on in this one. It's one of the oldest ideas i have and the one i'm most anxious to get right as it touches on all the things i most want to be writing about. It's something that is always in my thougths no matter what else i'm working on. I would love to say more about it but really i can't without giving too much away.

And of course there's also my Victorian occult investigator, my Doc Savage wannabe, and about half a dozen other characters and ideas that may never see the light of day.

So that's what i'll be working on... and i'll try to keep you updated along the way.

It's probably a bit too late now to wish you all a happy new year but... y'know... happy new year anyway.


  1. Sounds like an exciting year, Simon! I know I'm looking forward to it!


  2. It's a scary year! I hope i'm not setting myself up for a fall by blabbing about stuff prematurely.
