You're the Spring in my Step

I was happy to hear that the Comica Comiket was returning this Spring (14 May), as I'd really enjoyed my time with them back in 2012 and 2013. Given the (lamentably) stiff competition for table space at London conventions, it was nice to get a spot at my first comics-specific show in the Big Smoke for two-and-a-half years. Thereat, I released the second edition of Killjoy #1, featuring a redux version of the 'Cub Camp' story adding three pages and grey tone, as well as reworked versions of a couple of panels. (Check out some sample pages over at the Shop.) Comiket took place in the sheltered courtyard of the House of Illustration, in King's Cross, on a mild Spring day; probably due to the event's recent resurrection and fairly late announcement, the footfall was lighter than in the previous years I attended, but it was an enjoyable event nevertheless. I look forward to their future shows.

In my previous post, I mentioned spending a pleasant day pratting about with Gareth Cutter and a video camera. We cut the resultant footage into Gurning Bright, a little teaser for an imaginary film about a talking tiger. Press play, click for HD quality, and watch in glorious full-screen mode (and turn up your volume, too, as I amateurishly set the audio levels a little too low):
