British Showcase Anthology #2

Next month sees the launch of the British Showcase Anthology Volume 2 and it gives me great pleasure to announce that one of my stories was selected to be showcased in its hallowed pages. The anthology itself will be published by one of the UKs biggest comics Publishers, Markosia and has been once again edited by the unstoppable Adam Cheal.

‘Blast Into The Past’ has been wonderfully illustrated by my oft artist-partner-in-crime and fellow Boltonian, Trystan Mitchell.

More info to follow as the launch approaches, but for now, here’s the rear cover with list of contributers:

100% Bio #13 Review

It's a great feeling when one of your stories gets a nice review, especially when it's a part of such great company as within 100% Biodegradable #13.

A Place To Hang Your Cape is a superb comic resource website, with a vast array of articles and reviews all put together by by a dedicated team of writers. The quote they've given to 'Atomic Control' I think sums the story up perfectly:-

"Chris Redfern's narrative dovetails perfectly with Edward Whatley's art in what can best be described as an old-school meets new-school mash up."

Edward Whatley's artwork is as stunning as ever and deserved of the praise given:

"Whatley’s traditional drawing technique is supercharged by modern methods of digital colouring and image manipulation..."

You can read the rest of our review and for the other stories here.

(and thanks to 100% Editor Dave Hailwood for letting us be a part of this issue!)

Prompted Tales - The Scout

The challenge set by the Editors at Prompted Tales was this, to create a short story in 100 words, no more, no less.

Sounds like my kind of challenge.

The story they published is called 'The Scout' and can be found via the link below.

Hallowscream 2016

A few years ago, I was lucky enough to have a story published in Hallowscream and it now looks like this year's comic will have my name in the credits once again!

'Endless Love' was previously published by Uproar Comics several years ago (as blogged here), but with Uproar folding not long after the comic came out, it never really saw much exposure.

Thankfully, Mr Ghastly McNasty himself decided that both my story and Davy Francis's artwork were good enough to be a part of his popular Halloween styled comic.

Here's a teaser of what's to come...
