Nice, I listened to an audio book of Stross's Singularity Sky. I liked it. I like the idea of cthulu and spies.

I hadn't heard of Chosp. something about skydoll threw me off--too disney maybe? but that dude draws so damn good-. as does Frezzato. -- you ever see the wolverine he did?

I haven't seen the Frezzato Wolverine I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for it.
Chosp looks good he's gone more humour with the style then disney, thought only the first chapter is in colour the rest is shaded in nice graphic screentones.
Also been reading Manara's Perchance to Dream.
Plus I'm looking forward to what what the Etherington Brothers are bringing out this year. http://etheringtonbrosportfolio.blogspot.com/

the fantasy segments on the film are just awesome. I need to read more manara cause not only are his women amazingly drawn but the backgrounds he uses in Perchance are inspiring. Which is great since I'm really trying to do istandbul/indiain archtecture well in the pages I'm doing at the moment.

there's a lot of good shit in england at the moment me and naniiebim have been trying to snatch up the people we know into our book birdsong.
You should hit one of the big cons over here sometime, like Becky Clonan just did! I'm sure you'd sell like a demon and people would put you up and show you round.

Yeah it seems like. between the stuff you guys are doing and and the other England dudes I pay attention to, it seems like one of the most exciting comic places on earth.
I really liked the books Naniiebim sent me with your stuff in it.

I hope I can make it there sometime soon, I've yet to get off this continent.

yeah the next birdsong is gonna be bigger and better. With some great new people in it. Plus the next 2000ad mag which I'm rocking Dr & Quinch for.

but if you need some hook ups and what not for coming over here just say the word.

Really? That's excellent. Why hasn't this news shown up on YOUR blog :)

Is it a strip or a pin up?

The 2000ad mag will (hopefully) be black and white newspaper print size. Like old sunday comics or DC's wednesday project. At the moment though daren't mention it on my Lj till the end of the month when I have free time. Since last time the forbidden planet blog mentioned it without telling me and I got flooded by emails before i was ready.
