Filmish issue 4 - Preorder now!
Filmish #4 will be officially released on Wednesday the 14th of August, but to grab a headstart and show your support you can pre-order it now via my Gumroad shop.
Preorders will receive a free digital download of the comic that will be emailed to them automatically on Tuesday the 13th, giving them a chance to read it before anyone else does!
I’ll soon be offering digital downloads of all my comics, all for a much lower price than the print editions. Meanwhile, all of my print comics will now ship with a digital version included for free when you buy through Gumroad.
I’m still getting this all set up, so let me know if you have any problems.
Food on Film - Filmish issue 4.
After a two year hiatus, Filmish is coming back with its fourth issue this August. It returns with a look at a subject that has fascinated me since university - the role of food and eating on film.
Readers of Filmish issue 1 will recognise that I’ve tackled the subject matter before, in a brief whistle-stop tour that just touched the surface of this fascinating subject. Since that first issue my work has developed a lot, and I’ve poured everything I’ve learned about making comics over the past few years into this issue to try and create an issue of Filmish that is both a pleasure to look at and to read.
You can book now for my Edinburgh Book Festival event, where I’ll be talking alongside Will Morris about my work.
Creating an Issue of ‘Filmish’
The latest issue of my comic book series Filmish will be launched during this year’s Edinburgh International Book Festival. It’s actually in the process of being drawn now, but I thought I’d take some time out to discuss how I create an issue.
Each issue of Filmish brings its readers new ways to watch popular and cult films by delving into a different facet of film analysis, and shining a new light on classics like Citizen Kane or The Terminator.

It all begins with a source of inspiration… an essay or idea that puts a film I love in a new light. For Filmish issue 2, which deals with sets and architecture in the movies, it was an essay by Geoff Manaugh on the BLDGBLOG website that deconstructed John McClane’s use of corporate architecture in Die Hard.
