This announcement has reached me from Stuart Gould of UKCOMICS :-

''Hello to everyone involved in COMIC BOOKS which includes Writers, Artists, Colorists, Letterers, Publishers, Stores, Editors, Commentators, Reviewers and most importantly the Buyers & Readers. Here at UK COMICS CREATIVE we are proud to announce the completion and launch of UK ON DISPLAY - our NEW CATALOGUE which is now available to purchase from
The Catalogue will be making its way into Comic Book Shops, Book Shops and other outlets over the course of the next few weeks and we are busy completing our ONLINE STORE which should be live early January.
You can now ORDER titles within the Catalogue by using the ORDER FORM on the site.
We'd love to hear from as many of you as possible. We will be compiling issue 3 in January. Our initial intention is to print 4 Catalogues per annum with a NEW MAGAZINE popping up in between. We will actively market all titles throughout each month and issue a monthly update to include new titles as they publish. We will also be launching many other features including Art Prints, Hardcover Art Books, Event Management and COMICS BOOKS in SCHOOLS!
You can also visit for information on printing and publishing. We look forward to hearing from you. SUPPORT INDEPENDENT PUBLISHERS''.

Well Accent UK are certainly listing our books in the catalogues, it looks like a great opportunity to get our books into more hands across the country, and if you've met Stuart then you'll know that they don't come much more passionate than him about the genre.

WesterNoir Update

WesterNoir Issue 2 is now available in digital format through Lush Comics.
As with all Lush Comics titles, this means that the Accent UK comics will be available for the Amazon Kindle and on the iTunes Bookstore, with Google Books and the Barnes & Noble coming soon (for those in the US). iPad and iPhone owners can browse, purchase, and read books on the iTunes Bookstore from the iBooks app. Or from Amazon which makes them available on almost every device through Kindle.
Also, we've had a great review over at The Birmingham Mail website.
...and the cover for Issue 3 is progressing very nicely ... did we mention it's got mermaids in it...
Gary Crutchley's working on the cover for Issue 3...

WesterNoir 2 is now available to purchase online...

If there's one problem with our new improved website, it's me.
As I go onto it so infrequently, that is when we publish a new book (about 3 times a year), I have trouble remembering how to update it.
We'll I think I've managed it now for WesterNoir #2, which can now be purchased at
... this issue will also be available digitally soon through LUSH Comics, alongside issue 1, and will be available through iBooks, iTunes apps and Android. I'll post an update when this is the case but all files are uploaded and are going through the acceptance process.
When I get stock of Missing - Have You Seen The Invisible Man? and Who On Earth Was Thaddeus Mist? I'll add these to the website as well. Should be in the next week or two.
Also, I've posted another panel from Stephenson's Robot (Issue 3) over on my other blog Strange Times.
