Happy Halloween from Nestor


Happy Halloween folks. A while back when Martin Greene came to me with the idea for Nestor he told me a little history he had created for the character Lusk (Nestor’s best friend). He based the character on George Lusk a man that was involved in the Jack the Ripper murders back in 1888. He had a very cool idea, what if Jack the Ripper was a vampire and Lusk had been sent to kill him. So that’s where this five page strip came from. We will probably release it on line for a while first as we get closer to Nestor’s release date in early 2012. The artist behind this great looking strip is Joe Campbell. I’ve worked with Joe before on a strip for Issue Three of Zombies Hi and when I saw his art style I thought he would be perfect to work on this strip.

I also want to thank everyone that nominated and voted for myself in the Irish Comic News Awards. I know people always say this but it has been an honor to be mentioned in the same category as some of the most talented writers working in the Irish scene today. Also best of luck to everyone that got nominated in the Awards, we should know the results tomorrow.

So once again Happy Halloween and hope you enjoy the panels.

Anthony O Neill’s blog.


Anthony O Neill one of the artists behind Nestor has set up a new blog post. Anthony’s work is brilliant and is worth checking out. He is a talent to watch out for. Here is the link and also an example of Anthony’s work below for ye to check out.


Mike Ball’s new Wire and Gas Page.


It’s all slowly coming together. I’ve got the inked pages for Mike Ball’s Wire and Gas story today. We now have all the pages for the comic. Here is some new panels from Mike and I think you’ll agree he has done an excellent job on it. We have been very lucky to have Anthony O Neill, Mike and Aidan Courtney contribute to this anthology they have all brought there own very unique styles to the book. I’ll have more news on the book once we have the cover sorted and we will also have a very cool announcement to make soon about this book and Nestor in the near future soon.

As this is also the last week for voting for the ICN Awards I think I’ll do some more shameless begging for votes. It has been excellent to get nominated for this. So here is the Irish Comic News voting page.
