The latest news from the world of Rose

Comic Book Resources features Rose!

Hello! The wonderful folks at Comic Book Resources just featured Rose in their Went To Tell Everybody column, where independent comic creators get to talk about their work! It was really nice of them to do that, and it was a weird thrill to see Rose up on that site along a raft of super heroes and big name comic creator big shots doing stuff.

Go give the article a read!

Event! Comic Street, Brisbane July 7!

OH BOY! I am super, super, SUPER excited to announce this one – we’ll be at Comic Street on July 7!

Comic Street is an indie comics market right in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD, and it’s always been one of my favourite shows! There are dozens of great local comic creators showing off their latest wares, and I will be one of them!

I’ll have all the latest Rose comics on sale, AAAAAAND exclusively debuting Rose: Second Helpings! I always say it’s only polite to bring a new comic to a show and this is going to be the best one yet!

It’s always a fun show, and it’s great to see everyone who is just doing their regular city shopping find themselves in the middle of a bustling comic convention, ready to discover great new comics! I have met some lovely people in previous years, and I can’t wait to say hello to everyone who visits this time!

EVENT! Melbourne Oz Comic-Con June 9-10!

Hello! I am super, SUPER excited about this news! I’m doing my first interstate comic convention! I’ll be at Oz Comic-Con in lovely Melbourne on June 9-10 in Artist’s Alley and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it!

Melbourne has always been awesome to Rose, being on the shelves of many awesome Melbourne comic shops from the early days so it’s about time I stopped by and said hi! Oz Comic-Con was a fantastic show the last time I did it in Brisbane, so this just works out splendidly.

Plus, seriously, Melbourne has literally the best hot chocolate I have ever tasted, so how I resist? 🙂

SO! Come to Oz Comic-Con in June 9-10 at the Melbourne Convention Centre, and stop by the Rose booth in Artist’s Alley! I will have a ton of Rose comics for sale – primarily Rose #8 which will be DEBUTING EXCLUSIVELY AT THE SHOW! OMG. I can’t wait to show this one to you all, it really is something special. I can’t believe we’re up to issue #8 already. Crazy. I will also have some Rose merch AND be doing sketches of any character you want (as long as they’re eating breakfast!)

Can’t wait to see you there!!

PS: Seriously, where’s good in Melbourne to get some Japanese Curry? LET ME KNOW PLZ I WILL DIE WITHOUT IT

PPS: Want to WIN some tickets to the show? My friends at Ausretrogamer are giving away TWO OZ COMIC-CON TICKETS, head on over and enter!

Rose: Second Helpings on Kickstarter!

Hello! I am very very excited right now because I just launched a Kickstarter campaign to get the next Rose book collection printed!

It’s called Rose: Second Helpings and it’s 100+ pages of fun Rose comics, with remastered art and brand new stories that YOU can guest star in! OMG FRIENDS IT’S GONNA BE SO GREAT!

We have digital copies, print copies, signed and sketched copies, guest star appearances and even super-super limited hand-drawn cover versions on offer! This is the ultimate book for yourself or anyone you know who will enjoy comics about food and the power of friendship.

Rose #7 is now on Comixology!

Hello! Did you know that Rose is also on Comixology, the world’s #1 digital comic book shop? It’s true! And what’s more, the very latest issue is now available on that awesome service!

And since Comixology is owned by Amazon, chances are you already have an account there, and are just a few quick clicks away from reading Rose’s latest adventures on your favourite digital devices! Comixology has an awesome feature where it guides you through each comic panel by panel, making it a great comic reading experience even on mobile phones!

Rose #7 is now on Comixology for only 99 cents! You can’t even get a box of McDonald’s Cookies for 99 cents any more. I loved those things. Oh man that reminds me, you know how on McDonald’s Cookies they had a little maze on the back of the box? WELL THEY DON’T EVEN COME IN BOXES ANY MORE! I know right, what a disgrace the modern world is!
