Given that image, I think it’s safe to assume that issue 6 continues Eddie’s spiral towards the nadir of his story. In some ways, I’d say that issue 6, Art History, is the equivalent to the 11 o’clock number of the series, and I’m really pleased to have reached this point. When this is a comic that I started out making on a desk at college, then in the little studio I had in a shipping container in the back yard of a deconsecrated police station in Deptford and now I’m making in a room above a hair weave shop in Peckham, when I’m not too distracted by the drama on the street outside, of which there is a great deal.
Over a weekend where there’s been some quite hilarious nonsense said about gay marriage comparing it to slavery, which I’m not sure if that’s the Catholic church tacitly blessing gimps, it was great to be going round town dropping comics off at Prowler, Gay’s The Word and Gosh! Comics, too. If your local shop has run out or doesn’t stock it, they can get it from Diamond UK, or if they get in touch with me, I can sort that out for them. Otherwise, you can order direct from me, too.
So, since it’s a new week, might I be so bold as to suggest this might be a good time to introduce new readers to the story of Eddie and the dogs in The Lengths?
