Sherlock Holmes – Vanishing Man #4 out now

The mystery of Michael Williams comes to its shocking conclusion. But will Holmes and Watson survive the deep running conspiracy gripping London from its very core? And even if they do, are they safe from the machinations of their greatest foe, the all-too-clever Moriarty?

Yes, the final issue is here at last, and our third Dynamite Holmes mystery is brought to its conclusion. We hope we’ve kept you guessing for a few months and that the twists of this fourth part are as enjoyable for you reading them as they were four us writing them. Julius Ohta has been an absolute pleasure to work with (as have Ellie Wright, and as always Simon Bowland) and we would love to do something with him again.

We would also love to do more Holmes so, if you’ve enjoyed this series, please let Dynamite know, and let everyone you think might possibly be interested know too. Spread the word.

We’re informed that there’s a collected edition of the series due out in December, so an ideal addition to everyone’s Christmas list.

You can read a five page preview of #4 at dynamite.com but BEWARE OF MASSIVE SPOILERS!!!

Health and work: an update

As you may already know, on Saturday the 10th of June Leah underwent emergency surgery to treat a subdural haematoma. A blood clot was safely removed from her brain and, after ten days recovering in hospital, she returned home.

Leah posted on her own (private) Facebook page on the 19th just to let friends and family know what had happened, and that she was okay. We received so many lovely messages, so many kind, generous people asking if there was any kind of help they could possibly give us. Then Andrew O’Neill went and set up a Just Giving page, the response to which has just been so far beyond anything we could have imagined I cannot adequately express our gratitude and astonishment. Thank you. Thank you all. So much.

Leah is recovering at an amazing rate, doing better and better each day, and we have no doubt she will recover fully in time. Exactly how much time that will take we can’t yet say, but it will be measured in months, not weeks, or days.

Meanwhile however, we have so many new things coming out that you probably won’t even notice our (short) absence. The 2000AD Sci-Fi special is out now, Sherlock Holmes: Vanishing Man #3 is due out next month (with #4 following in August), we have two new Storm Warning series starting very soon to the Megazine, we’ve got Conspiracy of Ravens coming out in October… loads of stuff which we really hope you’ll enjoy.

Thank you all so much for your continued support. We are so grateful to have family, friends, and fans like you.

New Daily Grail post: Alton Towers’ Wicker Man and Ye Olde English Theme Parks of Doom

The Wicker Man and The Beornen

Today (January 8th, 2018) UK theme park Alton Towers has made a somewhat unexpected announcement. Spring 2018 will see the opening of a new attraction at the Staffordshire based park: Wicker Man.

Wicker Man is the UK’s first new wooden rollercoaster experience in 21 years and comes with a globally unique twist – bringing together wood and fire for the very first time. A Wicker Man structure standing at 57.57ft (17.55m) tall – the height of a six-storey building – will dominate the very centre of Alton Towers Resort, appearing to burst into flames as the wooden track races three separate times through the structure.
