A nice hospital in the mountains. They're so friendly there.

Here's ROMAN the mercenary, just going to a sinister mountain spa and hospital for a bit of "special treatment".  Let's hope he makes it out of there in the end!
There are only about 8 panels left to do and so this story, "The Waters of Death", should be up on Kindle and Smashwords etc. before Christmas.
Thanks for reading!

Cinema Detectives Office Argument

Here's Rosa and Ken having a little office argument about whether Ken should go "speed-dating" or not. This is a slightly amended version of the new drawing style and I'm not sure I'm going to be using it quite like this. No news on production of the Cinema Detectives play just yet...

Cinema Detectives play - first draft

This is a ten-minute play for three actors with minimal staging requirements. Possibly friends or even children could perform it at home! It's a bit of a runabout! First draft can be found here:

Cinema Detectives play

New stage plan.
I have deleted the "old movie projector" from the staging requirements as it may interfere with the audience's view. The play is now assumed to take place "behind the movie screen" rather than in the cinema's projection room.

Cinema Detectives Stage Plan

Here is the initial idea for the stage plan, audience at the bottom. It represents the projection room at a disused cinema. All the action to take place on this one set.

'New' ebook

'New' Cinema Detectives ebook. Actually, it's quite an old story, written in the early 1980's and finally drawn-up about '86. It appeared in 'Mauretania Comics' and in the Lulu 'Cinema Detectives' book, but this is its first ebook incarnation:
"Comic strip seen through the eyes of weary American detective "Inspector Rockwell". It is apparently just after World War II and Rockwell is baffled by the mysteriously disappearing buildings in his city. The arrival of Rosa Pleck, the English "Cinema Detective" and movie heroine, causes him to become more hopeful. But when Rosa leaves his anxieties about the case start to become more of a general concern about his world."
Coming soon - Cinema Detectives, the play.
