This may very well be a career high for me.

Not only am I getting to create, write, and draw a horror book that is set in Ireland and deal with subject matter that I've always had a deep connection and fascination with, but I'm also lucky enough to be having it published through Image Comics; this is the same company that publishes The Walking Dead, Saga, Southern Bastards and a number of other amazing titles. Not too shabby.

I also get to hangout with Joana, who quite literally makes everything shine. Joana sees colour in a very unique way and it's a genuine joy to see what she brings to the page. Never have I been so in tune with a fellow artist. Jim Campbell kindly agreed to do the letters for us and he's just a master of placement and subtlety. And of course, there's the legend that is Jim Valentino, the publisher who decided to run with it. Jim's always been very supportive of my work and it's a pleasure to be back at Shadowline with him.
Another plus is that I've also got to reconnect with some old Irish friends who are very kindly helping out in various ways, from gathering photo ref, to reading the odd script draft to make sure my dialogue is ringing true: "Fuck's Sake!" or "Fuck Sake!" you know, that kinda thing.

I don't wax lyrical too much on social media, but I'm very proud of this one and everyone involved.

My new IMAGE BOOK, THE HUNT was announced at the IMAGE EXPO on Wednesday. I've been sitting on this for quite some time so it's great to finally get the word out there. I'm writing and drawing this one and just to add to the cool factor; it's set in Ireland!

Here's the solicit for the 1st issue:


32 PAGES / FC / M

Dream or reality? For a long time teenager Orla Roche couldn’t tell them apart, but now she knows the difference. THE HUNT is coming and its nightmare world of the restless dead will crash into hers. An intense story of survival, THE HUNT is a supernatural horror tale that will give Irish mythology a distinctly modern twist.

The bawdy world of Preacher collides with the nightmarish dreamscape of Insidious. Created by Colin Lorimer (Harvest)


I'm joined on this one by the esteemed, Joana Lafuente and, Jim Campbell. It's also great to be back once again with Jim Valentino at his SHADOWLINE imprint where I also did HARVEST.

Here's the first cover with some additional promotional art by Joana and myself:
