Moth City now available on ComiXology!

Above the artwork for Moth City Season 1, by Tim Gibson.

I'm taking a brief reprise from my hiatus (I'll be back next week!) to announce that Tim Gibson's fantastic webcomic series Moth City, is now available to buy and download from ComiXology - the world's largest digital retailer for comic books. Check it out HERE for only a crazy 0.99 cents US for the first issue!

Above: a sample page from Moth City by Tim Gibson.

Written and illustrated by Tim Gibson, Moth City is an alternate-history noir. The Nationalist Army of China comes to Moth City to purchase a mysterious new weapon to win the 1930s civil war, and instead steps into shadowy intrigues as a daughter tries to escape her father, a scientist tries to avoid his death sentence and a dictator tries to control a world falling apart.

"F@#king great!" - Mark Waid (writer of Daredevil and Kingdom Come)
"An engrossing and entertaining read... It's sharp and it's brilliantly illustrated..." - Multiversity Comics
"A crime/horror series with a highly polished style... and a healthy dash of noir" - From Earth's End

EVENT: Nga Pakiwaituhi: New Zealand Comics and Graphic Novels Panel

Next Wednesday I'll be taking part in a panel discussion on 'The New Zealand Comics Community' to support the exhibition Nga Pakiwaituhi: New Zealand Comics, currently on at St Paul St Gallery in Auckland.

The panel will be chaired by the exhibition curator, Dylan Horrocks, and will also feature Sarah Laing - writer/artist of Let Me Be Frank, and Sam Orchard writer/artist of Rooster Tails.

The panel kicks off at 6pm and will run for an hour; I'm sure there'll also be a Q&A, so if you have burning questions about NZ comics or how to get involved: come along and ask! The St Paul St Gallery is located at: 40 St Paul Street, Auckland.

See you there!


PS: Apologies for the lack of updates this month, l'm currently snowed under with work at the moment, but in May I'll have some big announcements! Plus I'll have the time to return the blog to full-power, at the heart of NZ comics community - so exciting times ahead!
