@mikegraham6 (and anyone else who is interested)
- I designed the logo (pretty classic look to it),
- designed the layout of out the front page (again, it is a pretty basic, standard layout),
- the inside front cover (as well as having some fun with Mike's art for that by blowing up a tiny detail of an orgasmic woman for the background on that page),
- the back cover (which uses a version of one of the teaser images we created for the marketing campaign back in November 2010),
- 6 full pages of extra text by Casey and sketchbook materials from Huddleston,
- a logo for that section (which is called "For Which It Stands")
- and finally, the title page, double-page spread montage and coloring on the "Coming Soon" section.

It is a wonderful job that I'm enjoying a lot, made that much easier by Joe Casey and Mike Huddleston's incredible content.
March 16, 2011 7:45 pm OH, I should have made that a clickable link, sorry: http://dissizit.com/blog/?p=10448
March 16, 2011 7:44 pm Since the Luna Bros helped make this awesome t-shirt possible, I think it qualifies for your list: http://dissizit.com/blog/?p=10448
February 2, 2011 2:34 pm Thanks again for the awesome tour Mike! I wrote about it too (and even snuck a photo of you in there, hehe), so we know it was damn inspiring!
December 19, 2009 8:15 pm @davidtobin100 Did you read the article at all? Making a sexist statement and prefacing it with "Not to sound sexist", doesn't make it any less sexist. In the last paragraph I address the issue of these being "boys" comics. If you aren't going to read the article, feel free to keep your sexist ideas to yourself.
December 8, 2009 3:29 pm @lobo No way! I lived around there too for about 6 months. I think it was Falkland Road, right around the time some nutter was stabbing girls on their way to work, (as if walking to Turnpike Lane tube wasn't shitty enough at 8am, without the threat of some bastard stabbing you to death.) It's true, I do not miss the glamor of London.
December 8, 2009 12:33 am @lobo Me too mate! Shaun of the Dead was filmed right where I lived, in Crouch End. It's bloody mental seeing your yard in a film, innit?

December 2, 2009 12:33 am @iceicebaby Thank you.
November 20, 2009 9:44 pm I really do love cake. Pretty much any cake. Also meringues, and pie too. Oh, and cobbler. I'm crazy about cobbler.
