On Saturday 14 May, you can buy my book When the last story is told at the Comica Comiket in London! It’ll be available at the Lines of Enquiry table, manned by Dave Crane and Simon Russell.

Lines of Enquiry is a recent cooperation between Crane, Russell, Gareth Hopkins, Simon Moreton and myself, joining our efforts to promote each other’s fringe comics at a wider range of festivals than we would be able to individually. Watch this space for more Lines of Enquiry appearances!
