Ode to an Unfashionable Pop Song....

'Ode to an Unfashionable Pop Song' is a short comic done for a section called 'Various Artists' on the music section of the website of graphic novel artist Tim Bird. It is a one page comic about the Chris De Burgh song 'Say Goodbye to it All'

'Various Artists' requires creators to produce a short, one page story about a particular song or musician. I figured there are lots of comics about Sonic Youth so thought I would try something different. Here is the comic and accompanying sketches of Chris and his bassist Pino Palladino who played on many of Chris De Burgh's eighties recordings. You can see the other contributions to the section on the link below as well as check out the excellent work of Tim Bird.....https://www.timothybird.co.uk/various-artists








Doris Wishman Article in Darkside Magazine 210

I have an article on female exploitation director Doris Wishman published in issue 210 of Darkside Magazine. Doris Wishman made such films as 'Nude on the Moon', 'Indecent Desires', 'Let Me Die a Woman' and 'Deadly Weapons' The article provides an overview of her career with focus on her main horror genre entry 'A Night to Dismember' and it's troubled production. It's a real honour to be published again in Darkside having read the magazine for many years. I bought it for the first  time when I picked up issue 2 in 1990.
