halfway through the tunnel 

Over the weekend work on the all-consuming Secret Project (about which I'm still not allowed to say very much for fear that I'll have my throat cut across, my tongue torn out by the roots, and my body buried in the rough sands of the sea at low water mark - or, you know, at least be told off a bit by my editor) reached the halfway mark. Thought I'd mark the occasion here even if I do still have to economical with the details.

What I think I can say is that it's a comic strip that will see eventual publication in a forthcoming children's comic sometime next year. But long before then it'll show up somewhere else (but I'm really not allowed to talk about that bit).

Anyway, I have special permission to show you a single panel from one of the completed pages, so here's a panel from episode 2 (of 8). Drawn by me and rendered into technicolour wonderfulness by my mate Faz "King Midas" Choudhury whose dedication to the cause is nothing short of heroic.

Full details of all that I can't yet say sometime closer to publication (mid December-ish). In the meantime I'd probably better get on with the second half...

very intreaging.

Dave, you're such a tease.

Yup. Sorry. I know it's annoying. And I'd rather just tell everything but my editor forbids it and he's a lovely man so I want to keep him happy. I should be able to reveal all, um, a fortnight on Saturday at the latest.

My interest is much piqued...

keep us posted cos the curiosity is getting quite painful.


Hi Marv,

James knows a fair bit about it.

Everything becomes very public on December 29th.
