Season of Madness at Amazon


So, I got two good news this week.

First was getting my comp copy of "Season of Madness" - the latest book I've illustrated for Airship 27 productions.

Second was knowing the book is now available at Amazon.

So what is the book about?
When a group of men and women throughout London begin exhibiting strange psychotic behavior, Dr. John Seward, from the Dracula affair, is brought into the case. Faced with a mystery beyond his realm of experiences, he turns to Sherlock Holmes' trusted companion, Dr. Watson, for help. Together these two men of science must uncover the riddle behind a white powder drug with the ability to drive people mad before the entire population is infected. Also includes a special bonus story, "The Electric Shark", starring Her Majesty's Secret Agent, Quincy Harker.



Last but not least, credit where credit's due, "Season of Madness" was written by Aaron Smith, features illustrations and back-cover by myself Pedro Cruz and cover by Rob Davis and Shane Evans.



You know how having a book around will make you seem all hip and intellectual. It also makes for a lovely Christmas present. Get one for your lovely half, for you mom, for your dad, for your brothers and sisters, for gramps and even for your mascot, be it cat, dog or parakeet. Don't forget to treat yourself with one copy too. Here's the amazon link. Now be a good sport and buy it.

WHYM - post scriptum

WHYM is dead, long live WHYM!

So where do we stand? Well, first of all I'd like to thank you, dear reader, for following this comic through these long months. It's been quite a trip since early this year, crafting the longest sustained graphic narrative I've ever done on my own. Your comments and support have been invaluable. I sincerely hope you've enjoyed it!

Like I said WHYM is over... Nevertheless, other stories will follow. Stories to be read and enjoyed as self-contained entities, with their own peculiar visual identity, but also capable and willing to put WHYM under a different perspective and even answer some of the unsolved questions of this first comic, particularly some that WHYM’s final page hopefully summoned. I won't go into more detail describing these other future comics as I believe that over-explaining one's own work usually tends to suck the magic out of it. Instead, when the time comes, hopefully sometime next year, I'll let you enjoy them in the same way as I did with WHYM, allowing the work to speak for itself and you, the reader, to draw your own conclusions.

In the meantime, we'll proceed with a new schedule for the blog: once a week, every Saturday, with some writings or drawings as usual.

Stay tuned!
