Storm Warning part three in Judge Dredd Megazine 363

(Yes, I know it came out a couple of weeks back now but the school Summer Holidays have only just finished and this is pretty much the first time I’ve sat down at my PC properly in  weeks.)

363

Storm Warning // The Relic
(Part: 3)

Brit-Cit, 2137 AD. Much like its Mega-City counterpart, Brit-Cit Justice Department has its various departments, from Tek to plainclothes, Tactical to Psi-Division, and one of its more prickly operatives in the latter is Lillian Storm, a psychically powerful Judge with the ability to talk to the dead. Unfortunately, her abilities are just as much a curse as they are a talent…

Apologies and info dumps

Sorry. No really, sorry.

We’ve really not been keeping on top of posting things here for a while now, and we’re sorry.

Leah’s incredibly busy with Electricomics (and the now impending launch thereof ) and has been for what seems like a very long to now. It’s also the school Summer Holidays which means a host of children to constantly feed, placate, and entertain here at Moore-Reppion Towers.

Anyway, yeah, we’re very busy and we haven’t stayed on top of updating the site. So sorry about that.

What have we missed telling you about?

Storm Warning // The Relic
(Part: 2)

Brit-Cit, 2137 AD. Much like its Mega-City counterpart, Brit-Cit Justice Department has its various departments, from Tek to plainclothes, Tactical to Psi-Division, and one of its more prickly operatives in the latter is Lillian Storm, a psychically powerful Judge with the ability to talk to the dead. Unfortunately, her abilities are just as much a curse as they are a talent…

People seem to be really enjoying the series (and especially Tom’s artwork) which is lovely to hear/read.

Leah was recently a guest on that lovely, talented man Paul Cornell’s podcast chat show The Cornell Collective

Welcome to the Cornell Collective. Paul’s guests are novelist Chuck Wendig, comics writer Leah Moore and YouTube presenter Christel Dee. Together they discuss people who have made them starstruck, being recognised by strangers, how parenthood affects pop culture consumption and how to bluff your way through not having actually watched Breaking Bad.

Leah’s also had a few new Lifetime articles published recently, and she’s off to Mexico next month (9th to the 13th of September) for the Pixelatl Festival (so if you, or anyone you know, are anywhere near Cuernavaca city next month, please check it out).

I think that’s about it but more than likely I’ve forgotten a couple of things yet again.

Sorry.

Swords of Sorrow: Dejah Thoris & Irene Adler 3 (of 3) out now

Dejah Irene 3

The third and final issue of Leah and Francesco Manna’s Swords of Sorrow mini series arrived in shops, both physical and electronical, yesterday.

The streets of London are no place for a woman all on her own. They are, however just fine for a woman wielding a Sword. Dejah Thoris is used to London’s dirt, and its rain, but she is growing tired of its people. She and Irene Adler must surely band together to find the Banth and get Thoris back to Barsoom, but to do that, one of them would first have to back down…

There’s a five page preview at CBR if you’d like to check it out. Also, some very nice reviews.

Writing as a duo, as we have for more than a decade now, it’s really interesting for me to see something Leah wrote without my input. The series has come out so great – so much like what we do together and yet somehow just a little different – and I’ve really, really enjoyed reading it.

Daily Grail Strange & Norrell articles: V – The Raven King

jonathan-strange

My fifth and final Strange & Norrell piece for the Daily Grail is now online. It’s called The Raven King.

I’ve really enjoyed writing the S&N pieces (almost as much as I’ve enjoyed the genuinely wonderful TV series) and probably could have gone on and on but thought it best to quit before people got too bored. Thanks for all the lovely things people have been saying about the articles. I hope I can do something similar again in the future.

John on the Strange and Norrell podcast Lost-Hope

The finale of Peter Harness’ brilliant TV adaptation of Susanna Clarke’s master-work Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell aired on BBC One last night and if you missed it then you should catch up as soon as you possibly can (if you’re in the US you’re lucky enough to still have a few episodes to go).

I spoke to @fittentrim at Lost-Hope: A Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell podcast about my own love of the book and TV series, and about my Daily Grail articles on the folklore and history behind the story.

Daily Grail Strange & Norrell articles: II – On Fairies and Witchcraft

jonathan-strangeSusanna Clarke’s 2004 historical fantasy novel Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell has been adapted into a seven part television series currently airing on the BBC (beginning on BBC America June 14th). I’m plucking out some of the more easily disentangled fragments of folklore, magic, and the like from the book (and the show) and taking a closer look at them for The Daily Grail.

My second Strange & Norrell piece On Fairies and Witchcraft is free to read online now, and contains no (or only extremely minimal) spoilers.
