RIP Ray Harryhausen. An absolute visionary who populated the imagination of generations.
If I had to choose a single creature, I suspect I’d choose Talos who I’m amazed I’ve never tried to write into any of my comics. I could have made GIFs of the whole scene, but I’ll go for this gloriously creepy moment.

Develop Awards 2013
CSR RACING is nominated for Visual Arts, which is very well-deserved; when the game was released, it was perhaps second only to INFINITY BLADE in terms of amazing visuals on a goddamn phone. But while I’m delighted to have been involved, obviously the graphics aren’t really anything to do with me.
ZOMBIU, however, is nominated for Use of Narrative, and that’s entirely to do with me and my co-writer Gabrielle Shrager, Ubisoft Montpellier’s Story Design Director. We talked about the game’s use of narrative, and how we approached it, at GDC this year, and if you have a Vault pass, you can watch the session here.
So, yeah. Nothing like an awards nomination to brighten up the morning.
WASTELAND #44 On Sale
WASTELAND #44 goes on sale this week.
‘The Wreckage of My Flesh’ is the concluding part of the current arc, and signals the beginning of the end — as Michael, Abi, and Thomas are all reunited, and press on to what they hope will be their final destination.
But before that, there are questions to be asked, and clues to be found:
Their long journey through the wasteland is almost over… if Michael, Abi, and Thomas can make it through just one more strange encounter. The people of the valley, tattooed and suspicious, don’t take kindly to intruders. But their Oracle thinks different, and wants to meet these odd people…even if they may not want to meet her!
The order code for this issue is JAN131227, available from all good comic stores, and from Comixology for digital readers.
You can also read a preview of the issue at Comic Book Resources.
