I've been working hard trying to get a second issue of 'Filmish' together in time for the upcoming Edinburgh International Film Festival. It's going well, if a bit slowly. Here's a wee sampler to get you excited! Click on it to enlarge:

The hard working folk at We Are Words + Pictures have brought together some of the finest comics talent in Britain for the second issue of Paper Science. It's a newspaper format anthology that they're going to be giving away for free at Orbital Comics in London on the 1st of May (which is Free Comic Book Day). I've been lucky enough to have been included in the collection, with a full colour version of my Food on Film "Filmish" essay. If you're in London you should pop in and grab your copy.
