Charles Dickens’ The Signalman adapted by Jason Cobley and David Hitchcock

David Hitchcock is quite simply an amazing artist. Leah and I have worked with Dave a few times on UK small press things and have been trying for years to get a larger project sorted with him. We’re still trying, and very much hoping that 2018 will be the year it finally happens.

A while back he and writer Jason Cobley worked together on a GN adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic ghost story The Signalman.

If you enjoyed Vol 1 of our our M. R. James adaptations then this is going to be a book you need to get hold of.

The Signalman is £7 including P&P to the UK, £14 elsewhere. To order your copies from Dave PayPal funds to black_boar1 [at] yahoo [dot] com, or contact Jason via his website.

Paul Cornell’s 12 Blogs of Christmas: Day 3 – Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silver Chain

Every year that talented and lovely chap Paul Cornell runs twelve blogs on his site on the lead up to Christmas. Some are written by the man himself while others are written by invitation. We were honoured to be asked to contribute when we bumped into Paul all too briefly at Thought Bubble last month.

Sherlock Holmes by Matt Triano

Paul told us that the loose theme of the blogs this year would be “What are your characters doing at Christmas?” so, after a bit of head-scratching, we came up (and got rather carried away) with a short, festive Sherlock Holmes mystery entitled The Case of the Silver Chain.

We hope you enjoy it.
