Howdy!

I am new to the Millarworld forum and wanted to introduce myself to you all! I am a letterer and writer of comic books, having written pieces for Fifth Dimension Comics and I have a short comic appearing in a future issue of UK anthology comic FutureQuake. Through my own comic production house, Madius Comics, I have self published the following comics:

Papercuts and Inkstains 1, 2, 3a, & 3b - An anthology comic of weird and wacky comics, including the ongoing comedy/horror series “The Profits of Doom” which has a revolving stable of artists. Most stories are co-written with Michael Sambrook.
The Kings Leap - Art by Gareth Sleightholme. A viking hack ‘n’ slash oneshot comic, which in effect, is heavy metal distilled into comicbook form.
Ramlock Investigates #01 - Co-written with Mike Sambrook and with art by Drew Bristow, an anthorpamorphic detective comedy staring a Goat and a Pig…'nuff said.
Average Joe #01 - An apocalyptic comedy involving Saxons, Birmingham UK and a man who at the end of the world, chooses to finally start living.
Horrere #01 - Co Produced with Little O Productions, this is a horror anthology along the lines of “Creepy”, with art by Alisdair Wood, Al McLauchlan, Gareth Sleightholme, Neil Ford and Ian McQue.

I also letter comics, and have lettered for Grayhaven Comics, Fifth Dimension Comics, Clockwork Goat and various other small press titles. I am currently lettering series for Markosia, American Gothic Press and Amigo Comics.

Here’s a snippet of the latest thing I’m working on:

Art is by Jim Lavery, written by myself and coming out in Papercuts and Inkstains #04 next year.

I am always open to taking on new projects and challenges and look forward to chatting and interacting with you all on here!

Haha! Thanks Miqque!

Still learning, self taught! However, has some guidance along the way from some top letterers! It’s a lot harder than just slapping words on the page in comic sans! So much respect for those who do it! I initially learnt so I could letter my own comics, but people seemed to like the work I did so have ended up working with some fantastic creators on some absolutely awesome projects!

:grin:

My first encounter with a letterer was a kid in college with me - back when we met if the dinosaurs were not using the grassy area. He was super into calligraphy, and gave me a couple-hours overview. I remember stuff like that, somehow. With digital, it’s becoming a lost art, and that’s a pity. After people like John Workman and Chris Eliopoulos and Tom Frame, it’s almost a hardship to see words without feeling. As a writer, I love letterers with a passion!
