BETTY ‘THE SLAYER’ MITCHELL… AVAILABLE NOW!!!

Hey guys,

Technically it’s been available for a couple of weeks now but I am only just getting round to updating my website.

We have a few reviews on Comixology already and are rated 5/5 at FIVE STARS, super happy with that.

We have also had some great reviews on the below websites, feel free to click the link and have a read.

Omnicomic

“Betty ‘The Slayer’ Mitchell #1 is anachronistic in a way that offers readers a glimpse at a new character fighting known entities.”

Thefellowshipofthegeeks

“She’s a great character, and this is issue 1 of 5, so we can look forward to much more from her in the coming months. Now’s the time to get on board.”

Thedreamcage

“So, all in all, a good start to what could become a fun series of comics.”

Readingwithaflightring

“Proof positive that Markosia is home to some fine storytelling.”

Indievolt

“Making Betty “the Slayer” Mitchell a High Voltage book. But as always you don’t have to take my word for it, you can pick up your copy on Comixology.”

Indietoaster

“I enjoyed reading through Betty ‘The Slayer’ Mitchell and would love to read more.”

We also got a fantastic review from the guys at THE AWESOME COMICS PODCAST who said the awesome line.

“It’s like a cross between Buffy the vampire slayer and Penny dreadful and to be honest, if you said there was a comic or show like that I would think it would be fucking great.”

Listen to it here!

If you haven’t already purchased to read please do so as I think you will really like it, it is available from ComiXology at the following link.

Betty ‘The Slayer’ Mitchell #1

A spate of grisly murders leads to a desperate plea for help from renowned monster hunter Betty ‘The Slayer’ Mitchell. This one is personal though, when she finds out that the brutal killer is none other than Spring-Heeled Jack. It was he that attacked Betty previously and led her to the path that she is now on, hunting down monsters of legend, and she wants some closure!

Once all five issues are out digitally, the book with become a physical entity which will be available through all major book distributors.

Here is a look at the first pages to see if I can entice you into wanting more.

Want to say how unbelievably happy I am with the artist Ka De Oki who has been PHENOMENAL, he is actually pencilling page 4 of issue #4 at the time being and the colourist Tiko Capdevila who is putting out some crazy good pages (wait till you see the flashback scenes).

Will let you know when issue #2 is available.

‘Almost’ by Giles, Dunham & Gonzalez Page 4 Peek from Kayfabe Anthology

Hey guys, been a while since I have put a post-up so thought I would share this sneak peek of a page from the eight page story ‘Almost’ that I wrote and lettered with brilliant art from Chase Dunham and Maxi Gonzalez with some phenomenal colouring.

The story is going to be in Kayfabe Anthology which as you probably already have guessed is all about wrestling.

The standard of talent working on the book is pretty amazing.

Will have more information on when it will be available soon but I can tell you that you can purchase it both digitally and in print from drivethrucomics.com when released.

Also after having some discussion’s with Chase and I am positive Maxi will be on-board we are actually going to be turning this story into a miniseries.

The three of us are MEGA busy on other projects for the remainder of 2016 but hopefully early 2017 we can get the pitch sorted to send to publishers 🙂

Here is a little sneak at page four from our story and an unlettered panel from page one.

My Boy Sonny (poem)

Although I will get to telling you about my writing projects I thought I would share a poem I wrote earlier on in the week for my middle child Sonny.

I have three kids, the eldest is a girl and two youngest are boys but Sonny is a special wee boy who happens to be on the Autistic spectrum and it’s been hard, it’s been real hard sometimes having a child on the spectrum.

Being a parent is hard enough, being a parent of more than one is even harder and then you get to being a parent of a child with Autism and it is the hardest.

Anyway I am not here to moan, preach or compare lives with anyone, just to post a poem 🙂

It’s obviously the first poem I have posted and I will post more but next I will tell you about the comic book projects I am working on and the stories too.

My boy Sonny

Life is hard enough as it is, for normal people like me and you,
Growing up and getting a job, just trying to make it through,
And if you’re lucky just like me, to also have kids and a wife,
People assume they know what it’s like, to live in your everyday life,

It’s not like that for the misses and me, we’re part of a special pack,
We’re different from other families, it’s not just white and black,
Going each day to make it through, without trying to be labelled,
It never happens though you see, because my son he is disabled,

No physical impairments to give it away, nor does he have a wheelchair,
But when he is out being really loud, it’s easy to see it’s there,
It’s NOT a badly behaved kid you see, it’s really not that simplistic,
What you see is my middle child, an amazing boy who happens to be autistic,

I love my three kids just the same, there’s no favouritism in any way,
We watch television go to the park, together we all play,
Having an autistic child can be hard, whether he’s your son or he’s your brother,
Frustrating and amazing at the same time, like him there is no other,

It annoys me when I read these parents, who claim they wouldn’t take it away,
It’s what defines him and who he is, along with other nonsense they say,
I would get rid of that bastard disability, I would do anything to make it so,
Just so he could live one day without it, my life I would even forgo,

For him to just do normal things, to see the world as it really is,
I can’t even begin to imagine what it’s like, in that autistic world of his,
Anything is what I would give, really anything at all,
Just so he can see the world how it is, preferably for the long haul,

Or LET ME IN so I can share his world, understand what it’s like for him,
To see his colours, smell his smells, I would easily risk life or limb,
Join him in his odyssey, his epic adventure in what we call life,
Preferably with room for us all, his sister, brother, me and the wife,

It breaks my heart every day, knowing this will never be the case,
Knowing I won’t ever know what he thinks, when he is staring into space,
I’ve cried and screamed more times, than I honestly can remember,
Through frustration, guilt and blaming myself, January through to December,

With an autistic son it’s the little things, that bring happiness this dad,
The huge big smile and chuckling laughter, I am not going to focus on the sad,
A unique individual and a wonderful kid, extraordinary in every way,
Don’t get me wrong it’s still really hard, for his mum and me every day,

We never get any time for us, no one offers to babysit,
The problem is that everyone is scared, but no one will admit,
Yes he is hard work, yes he is different and yes he can make you cry,
But the tears are more from happiness now, why THE HELL doesn’t anyone try,

These last three lines I will try to explain, what autism is to me,
It’s that bastard disability that lives in my kid, which I dream every night would flee,
My beautiful boy that is being robbed, of leading a normal life,
He can count on one thing though every day, love from his sister, brother, me and the wife.

Hope you enjoyed it and it was ok as I am always really self-critical of my writing and this website is actually quite a big step but I thought what the hell, let’s put some stuff out there and get feedback whether good or bad.

Take it easy
