Been a while since I updated this site. Better late than never.
Well Rok of the Reds issues 3 & 4 are now available. You can purchase them through BHP COMICS or by contacting me direct through my Facebook page. The copies that I have will be signed by John Wagner and myself. What with Christmas just around the corner what could be better than a gift of Rok to that special someone.
Issue 5, the penultimate issue will be available in early January. Rid those January blues with some Rokkin action for our favourite alien football ace, Rok!
We’ve had wonderful feedback from fans and comic journalists. Some saying it’s the best independent comic out there. Check out the latest issue of SFX Magazine who reviewed it and rated it very highly indeed. Well, why wouldn’t they?
There will also be a feature in When Saturday Comes football magazine in the new year sometime in which John and myself were interviewed.
So issue 3 of Rok of the Reds is out in just over a week and you can get yourself a copy from BHP here.
I too will have copies which will be signed by John Wagner and myself. You can contact me via this site or via the Rok of the Reds Facebook site here to request info on how to go about purchasing these signed copies. What?! You don’t even have issues 1 and 2?! Fear not, these too can be purchased via the methods above.
Comic book legend John Wagner himself will have copies at the multiple comic events he will be attending this summer including the London Film & Comic Con on the weekend of 29th-31st July.
I unfortunately won’t be attending the Enniskillen Comicfest on the 6th & 7th May but John Wagner’s co-writer and comic legend Alan A. Grant will be. I’ve drawn a sketch of ROK that will be up for auction to raise money for the local children’s hospice. I’m sure Alan would be more than happy to sign the sketch so if you’re going then bid on the piece, it’s for a great cause.
The sketch itself may possibly be used in a future issue as a pinup.
Had a fab time at the LFCC in the Olympia London, for the release of ROK OF THE REDS.
John Wagner and myself were there to sign copies and introduce people to the world of ROK. It was my first con as a guest and an absolute joy.
I would like to thank all those who turned up and bought the first issue and had a chat.
If you want to order the amazing first issue you can do here.
Already we are receiving positive feedback and there is talk of a possible second series should ROK survive! Shhhh keep that to yourselves.
John Wagner and myself will be attending the London film & Comic con at the Olympia this February. We will be signing the first amazing issue of Rok of the Reds so come along and say hi. This will be my first appearance as a guest so I’m really looking forward to it. Unfortunately I can only attend on Saturday 27th but I will make the most of it. If you can’t come along I’m sure we will do signings at other locations throughout the year. When we know I’ll release the dates on here. See you soon.
Only one month to go until Rok of the Reds hits the shelves and you can pre-order it here.

So don’t, hit that link and pre-order. You won’t regret it.
