Tron tomorrow...

Every friday I like to go to Cineworld and just be entertained... This is the point of movies to me, sure some of them manage to inform and broaden my mind, yadda yadda yadda... But what I really want to do is watch a movie that takes me out of reality and into a world that I don't have to pay bills in, that I don't have pain in, or hospital appointments in (they really get to me)

Tomorrow, along with Rob Carey and probably some others I'm going to see the new Tron movie, I had only recently watched the original and if this new movie has half the entertainment as the original then I'm going to be a happy bunny.

Now back to tonight, I'm writing TIM AND LYNNE a love story about two serial killers who meet and fall in love, and also they go on this rampage of killing that will have to be seen to be believed.  Next week I continue with the lettering of RED GHOST and the new pages I just got from Rob Carey for THE SOCIETY FOR THE REMARKABLE SUICIDE.  So when Rob is finished with both they will be as ready for release as possible.

As a tease for you here is the latest page that Rob has sent me from RED GHOST... feel free to post this around and let others know what is going on here in Stephen World(?) no?  Coffey World(?) no?  ok I'm going to have to think up something special to call my world just like Mark Millar....

Talk soon and visit the store and support this poor writer....

Next Year...

For the last two years I haven't really managed to get to any conventions... A sad tale of health difficulties that would have your heart in tears... at least I hope it would.  Next year with RED GHOST and SOCIETY FOR THE REMARKABLE SUICIDE graphic novels coming out and more POGOROBOTO graphics on the way, I'll have to get out there and promote these books as best I can.

RED GHOST has art by the amazing Rob Carey... who isn't just a great artist but one of the funniest little feckers I've ever met, it doesn't matter what you are talking about as he can make it sound both dirty and funny in the blink of an eye... which is not a talent to be taken lightly... RED GHOST is a tale of Ninja and mind blowing crazy action scenes.  I'm constantly trying to find the best way of describing the book to people, but the easiest way of getting to the right description is by saying the graphic novel is a mixture of GOODFELLAS, HALLOWEEN, DEADPOOL, AMERICAN NINJA, and THE BOSTON STRANGLER (a very underrated performance from Tony Curtis)  Below is page 29 from the RED GHOST graphic novel.

So watch out for myself, Rob Carey, and my fellow RED GHOST author Patrick Burton at some Conventions next year, you can follow along on twitter and always feel free to stop by the online store on lulu at or on your local Amazon website.

Chat Soon...

It's about love dumbass!

Now that some of the threat problems have been resolved and I am getting art in from the fantastic Rob Carey, it looks as though there is a publishing date in site for Society for the Remarkable Suicide.  It's been over 3 yeas since I wrote the script and a number of artists have been on board and the reasons from non completion have ranged from the utter stupid to the very tragic.  What can I say?  I should have just written a novel version and let the graphic novel script fall into the trash... but that isn't me, I love a fight and an uphill struggle.

There still are some people out there unhappy with the book, but they don't seem too bothered about finding out the story within the pages, they read the title and know everything... I get about 10 to 15 emails a week from people telling me to change the title, or face having some form of trouble at signings... and a well known franchise comic shop here in Dublin has already said they won't stock the book without some form of disclaimer on the front saying that "the shop does not endorse suicide" (which I didn't think they did) and also I'd have to cover the cover up with a big sticker or something... even though many other titles on their shelves feature more morally grey art and words.  I can't be bothered with them stocking this book as they have no clue about what really is the meaning inside the pages. 

It's about love, and sticking around for another day, because we never know what the next day will bring and how happiness and love can find us when we least expect it.  Sure there are graphic scenes of over the top suicides, and some people said the message is more 'personal choice' but in the end its the love story of two people who join this Society for the Remarkable Suicide and realise that they are going to live for each other rather than die for nothing.

So here are the first two pages of the graphic novel section of the book THE SOCIETY FOR THE REMARKABLE SUICIDE with art by Rob Carey.
