Lying In The Gutters – Valentine’s Day 2011

Love is in the air, can you feel it? Unless of course you are a fictional Marvel character lined up for execution. Or a DC character seeing your book cancelled. Again. And as Flashpoint and Fear Itself prepare to go head to head, lots of peripheral titles and projects are being slashed. While all this PR I’ve been getting for my royal wedding comic book is giving me a new lease of confidence. I feel a Flashpoint Itself parody coming on you know… all I need is a publisher. Anyone out there feeling the love?
