As mentioned in the last post, I’ve been working on a story for zombie anthology, Dead Roots. And now, Dead Roots‘ chief all all-round good guy Mike Garley has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the full book, which contains all the Dead Roots stories to date and a few extras as perks: www.kickstarter.com/projects/1668205146/the-dead-roots-comic-anthology
It’s doing wonderfully well so far, but you can still become a big part of the campaign and own a rather lovely looking hardback edition (as well as get an exclusive invite to the launch party) by heading over to www.kickstarter.com/projects/1668205146/the-dead-roots-comic-anthology and contributing. Every bit helps and it’s a fantastic anthology which should appeal to anyone of great stories, whether you’re a fan of undead tales or not.
And I’m not just saying that – my humble little story is rubbing shoulders with tales from big names such as Paul Alexander (Red Dwarf, My Parents are Aliens, Emmerdale), Eric Canete (Iron Man, Luke Cage, Superboy), Andrew Ellard (Red Dwarf, IT Crowd, Miranda), James Henry (Green Wing, Smack the Pony, Campus), James Moran (Doctor Who, Severance, Cockneys VS Zombies), Jason Arnopp (Doctor Who, Friday The 13th, Stormhouse) and Gordon Rennie (Judge Dredd, White Trash, Necronauts).

So, in-between writing Magic of Myths: season two, Clockwork Watch: Breakaway and other bits and bobs, I’ve been secretly working on another project which I’d been signed up to. A secret project I can finally talk about in the open.
Say hi to Dead Roots.
The site describes it as:
“… a bumper-sized zombie comic anthology, published quarterly throughout 2013. Dead Roots brings together top talent from the worlds of TV, animation, film, comics and games to provide an anthology of stories based in the initial outbreak of a zombie outbreak. The anthology focuses on the emotional state and experiences of everyday people and their journeys, as they search to find their loved ones in the apocalyptic setting of a zombie outbreak!”
Dead Roots has picked up some sterling reviews, and I’m pleased to say I’m contributing a short story towards it called ‘Black, White and Red (All Over)‘.
Dead Roots‘ editor and chief, Mike Garley invited me to pitch a story to him last year, and after missing the mark with my first pitch, my second idea struck a chord. So after I put the script together earlier this year, he teamed me up with the talented Andy W Clift (artist) and Mike Stock (letterer) and after a few months of hard work, the results are ready to go. A quick panel preview for you…
You can see this page preview on the site with the other stories in Dead Roots by visiting www.deadroots.co.uk/stories/.
I’ll have news on when the next Dead Roots is available to download but you can buy the current editions here: www.deadroots.co.uk/the-app/.
I’m also working on several other secret projects… but I’ll talk about those in the coming months…
