I've Been Streaming

Since early December I've been tinkering around with Inspired from all the times I appeared as a guest on Ken's twitch stream, and having a bit of time on my hands, I wanted to see if I would enjoy running a channel of my own. Thankfully it has been a great experience so far! I think it has filled the hole in my heart left behind by the lack of performing live since Covid started. 

I regularly stream three times a week and then will throw in bonus extra streams if I have the chance outside of that schedule. Here's my list of games and times:

Tuesdays 18:30 - 20:00 GMT - Civilization V

Wednesdays 18:30 - 20:00 GMT - Project Zomboid

Thursday 18:30 - 20:00 GMT - Fortnite

Join us in the chats live and watch as I goof around playing games and singing random tunes!

Cancellations and Sales

Unfortunately, due to circumstances outside of my control, I will no longer be able to attend the Thought Bubble comic festival in Harrogate, England this weekend.

However! All is not lost, Hugh Madden who was sharing the table with me will still be there and will have limited copies of SWIFT and the SHIP WRECKED trade paperback on hand to sell. He's launching a couple comics himself that weekend so he's definitely worth checking in on. Also, it would be a shame to let this lovely graphic by Gareth Luby go to waste...

If you're not at Thought Bubble yourself, the ONLY place you can currently buy a copy of the SHIP WRECKED trade collection is through Little Deer You can either order online or visit their pop-up shop in Smithfield. They have a limited supply so don't dawdle!

"Busy, Ben. I Said I'm Busy"

When the pandemic started I was finishing up a couple scripts and gearing up for a Kickstarter. While the world stopped my day job at the hospital geared up and it's all been a bit of a blur since. But now, the summer of 2021 is looking like the culmination of all that hard work. Folks, I have a lot of comics coming out. It's time I told you more about them.

Launching tomorrow, is a website myself, Paul Carroll, Hugh Madden, and Clare Foley have been putting together in order to showcase Irish comic creators and their work. Every day, Monday to Friday, we'll be posting a new page from a series of comics we'll be hosting at the site. You can read more about it from our interview over at

My contribution is the new comic MR & MRS VAN HELSING, a story about newlywed monster hunters tracking down a beast terrorising a mountain town. Hugh Madden is the artist and co-creator, he's been doing incredible work. Just check out our preview below!

We'll be posting a new page every Wednesday and the story will be about a year's worth of content so strap in for what is definitely going to be a wild ride.

SHIP WRECKED is finished and is currently being put together for the printers. Our new letterer Frank Cvetkovic did a great job, especially with our Trey short story that features music by Caleb Lee. Just look!

I don't have an exact date yet for when we can start posting VOLUME 5 pages online but it will be some point next month. This is a preview of the first page (you may note a little reference to a frequent collaborator of mine). 

The very successful anthology TURNING ROADS is being released next month and it's another project involving Paul, me, Hugh, and Clare. In fairness, this was all Paul's but we contributed. The story I wrote is an adaptation of the Children of Lír myth (which is pretty fucked up if you want to wikipedia it). Alice Leclert did the art with David B Cooper colouring. It's only 4 pages but I am immensely smug with how well it has turned out. Just look at this gorgeous page:

And for a peak into how insane this anthology is, take a gander at all the credits on the cover!

Tomorrow I'm meeting up with Paul, Hugh, and Clare to celebrate the launch of but it'll be a little more than that. We've all been struggling to keep our comics career going through pandemics and everything else. To be where we're at with all this stuff going on right now is a hell of an achievement and I plan on patting everyone on the back. 

And then we'll probably get back to work.
