The latest episode is now online.

Documenting our trip to Thought Bubble!

From the web:

Welcome to this very special episode of TCSPod in which our heroes, David, Mike and Tom, take a trip to Harrogate to visit the 2019 Thought Bubble Comic Festival. We document from when we arrive to just before we leave. There is some sleep deprivation, some purchases talk, some creator interviews with the likes of Olivia Hicks (@missoliviahicks) Charles H Raymond (@not_so_tiny) Pete Taylor (@thismanthispete) & Vince Hunt (@jesterdiablo) , what our accommodation is like, how we were setting up, what went wrong over the weekend and so much more. CAUTION! Must be given though as we record bit at the festival and at a pub after when we got food, so there is A LOT of background noise at points. You have been warned.

Bell Time is available now at the Fred Egg Comics shop here.

A kind of body swap / time travel tale written and drawn by me. Also, one page school tales from my family.

"This book is absolutely as fun as it sounds and manages to cross all those great school comics and tv series we remember with the world of time travel. David has a simple and iconically British style and he understands how a comic should flow.
Highly recommended."
Tony Esmond, Never Iron Anything

"The art style of Bell Time has clear echoes of Bash Street, fitting for a comic that is straight out of Dundee – the real Beanotown. The legacy of Leo Baxendale and David Sutherland seeps through British comics and is a welcome element of Belltime. One kid looks like an older version of Oor Wullie…Wullie with a bumfluff moustache and an attitude."
Alister Black, Daredevils & Warriors

“This comic is a very unique comic! It’s also a very psychological comic. The concept is very smart. The characters overall are very well developed. The story has good pacing, and the storytelling was also good.”
Alkyone, Exploring Comics

80 pages. Colour.
