TBubz, Awesome Comics & Sam Read Sells!

Hey folks!

Been a heck of a week & a half, so here’s an update…


First up; Thought Bubble was predictably brilliant – met many old & new friends, & had a complete blast.

Thank you to everyone who popped by & said “hi”; was great to see who I managed too!

While at the convention, I had the opportunity to be part of Nerdly’s ‘Pass-It-On’ intervies, which involved me (by proxy) getting to ask creators Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie of Wicked+Divine fame a question about sandwiches; check it out below (& thanks to Mark Allen for getting me involved).

Taking with Awesome Comics!

I also had the great pleasure to sit down for a good ol’ chin wag with the gents from the Awesome Comics Podcast team this week.

We covered topics from Exit Generation, to our shared love of 90s action films, & through to my deep appreciation of Tommy Lee-Jones’ portrayal of Two-Face in Batman Forever.  I’ve embedded it below, so hope you’ll give it a whirl!


Sam Read Sells!

After a few people have mentioned to me recently that they’ve struggle to get hold of my books, I’ve set up a new webstore called Sam Read Sells (yes; on brand, I know…) to help out.

There you can get hold of Find Exit Generation (both #1 & #2), as well as my new collection Shorts, & for a limited time I’m putting on a bit of a sale.

Right now you can get the first couple of issues of Exit Generation for just £2 each, plus postage, as well as Find & Shorts for £2.50 each, again with postage; so, head on over & snag yourself a bargain!

(& if digital comics are more your speed; head on over to my Comixology page right HERE)

Thanks for popping by folks; till next time!



Exit Generation #2 – Out 28 October!

Hey people!

I’ve only been back from New York Comic Con less than a fortnight (where I had an AMAZING time) & already it’s time for Exit Generation #2 to hit comic book shop shelves & Comixology!  No rest for either the wicked or those who make comics, it seems!


Next #NewComicBookDay (so… Wednesday) you’ll be able to grab Exit Generation #2 from the shelves of your local shop, or but it online at Comixology, if you’re a digital reader.

Once again, you’ll have a choice between two gorgeous covers; either one by Ramon Villalobos & new series colourist Marissa Louse, or the second of four connecting variants running across the whole series from the fantastic team of Joe Mulvey & Jules Rivera.

As a little taster of what to expect in this second issue, I’ve popped the opening five pages below; not only do you get to see the introduction one of the two new (& very important!) characters, but also the brilliant colour stylings of the aforementioned Marissa Louise – go follow her on Twitter & tell her how awesome her work is!

I hope you enjoy the preview, & hope you’ll consider picking Exit Generation #2 up this week!





Exit Generation #2 is HERE!



The wait is over!

If you’re not familiar with Exit Generation, you can check out a preview of the first issue HERE, & buy it alongside #2  HERE.

I also wanted to take an extra moment to introduce what you eagle-eyed folks will have noticed is the latest recruit to the team, Marissa Louise, who is bringing her super-rad colouring skills to the book from issue two onwards.  You might be familiar with Marissa’s work from ‘Headspace‘ (MonkeyBrain Comics), & she will also be colouring the to BOOM Studio‘s upcoming ‘Robocop‘ ongoing comic, which is hella-awesome.

You can & should follow Marissa on Twitter, Tumblr, & check out more of her awesome work on her site.

Marissa’s work on Exit Generation #2 is amazing, & you can see some of it below in a couple of (spoiler-free) panels!

Jack & Mo head off on their quest.
