3 new pages this week, so turn the page. Thanks! Author comment on page 127
Thanks for reading again this week!

I recently deleted Giant Rhinos In Space from Tapastic because of changes with their T&C. I’ve noticed that the webcomic theme I use on tumblr is great on a PC web browser, but the page turn buttons are missing on the mobile app and mobile website. I would have to go through and manually add them to 100+pages (which I don’t have time to do) I’m really sorry for any inconvenience caused by deleting the comic from Tapastic.

It's also worth noting that the complete series is now available to read in print - a much more comfortable reading experience than any webcomic host site. which leads me onto the next bit of important news …

I’m at London MCM Comic Con this weekend! (RIGHT NOW!) You can find me on row G of the Comic Village! Check my twitter account for a map and photos) I’ve made up bundle packets of the complete series!

I keep an up to date list of events on the blog sidebar - but don’t forget I have an Etsy shop if you can’t make it to those particular cities. (International shipping available)

I’d also like to say thank you to everyone at Afroflux Comic Con at Birmingham Hippodrome last Sunday. It was great to catch up with friends and meet some really lovely people!

Thanks for reading!
3 new pages just went online, so turn the page! :) Thanks for reading!
Hi! Thanks again for reading this week!

I had a really great time at DIY Cultures yesterday helping out on the Do What You Want table with Clio Isadora. We only had one box of DWYW zines and they all sold - so thank you very much to everyone who bought a copy! Preorders are open for a 2nd print run of the zine, and an ebook is available from the website.

I’m going to be at Afroflux Comic Con https://www.facebook.com/events/135112227020151/ this Sunday at the Birmingham Hippodrome. The event is Free entry so please come say hi! I will have more table space this time, so I’ll bring a bigger selection of comics and zines. I’ve got plenty of free mini comics to hand out!
Thanks!

See you next Friday at 12noon GMT for 3 new pages! :)
Hey! Thanks for reading this week. Giant Rhinos In Space is back from hiatus - 3 pages per week at 12noon GMT! If you'd prefer to catch up in print chapters 1-4 are available from www.etsy.com/shop/sammyborras

I'm going to be at DIY Cultures this Sunday, helping out on the Do What You Want table. Please come say hi!

Thanks again!

Hey! Thank you for waiting so long for this chapter! I make this comic in my free time, so when other projects come up it gets pushed back. But I've been working hard on GRIS pages over April and now it's ready to relaunch!

I'm going to be posting 3 new pages at 12noon (GMT) every Friday. This week you get a relationship map and a reminder to maybe go back and reread previous chapters so you're ready for new updates. If you prefer reading in print, issues 1-4 are currently available through my Etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/sammyborras for 4 for £10.

I have a buffer built up which means the print version of GRIS #5 is due for release in May or June. This is will be the last chapter of the story but I'm not planning to publish a compilation graphic novel - I'm going to just make up bag bundles. (I have so much stock left of individual issues.) Please don't hold off buying in anticipation for a single book, thanks!

Booked conventions so far! (There's a couple of unconfirmed events so look out for announcements - I try to keep the webcomic homepage up to date)

Thanks for reading this week! This is the last page of the chapter so this webcomic will now go on a break for a bit. Look out because , Misc Fits will be the next comic I post online. Thanks!

Thank you to everyone who came by my table at Liverpool MCM Comic Con. Sorry for setting up a bit late, that was the earliest train available. Sorry if I missed you on Saturday evening, I was unwell and when the convention hall got quieter I decided to leave early to rest up for the next day. Table neighbors, venue and MCM staff and convention punters were all lovely at this show, thanks for looking out for me!

I'll be at Birmingham MCM Comic Con at the NEC this weekend - you can find my table CD4 in the Comic Village (there should be maps available in the show guide - which should go online in the next couple of days). I will have free mini comics to hand out, so please come say hi! More events listed in the blog sidebar or you can order online through Etsy.

Thanks again!

Thank you so much to everyone at True Believers Comic Festival - it was pretty chilled behind the table and a nice start to convention season. Giant Rhinos In Space #4 arrived in time to take to the show and it's now available to buy through Etsy (a complete up to date list of conventions can be found in the blog sidebar). I have a couple of bundle deals listed if you need 'back issues'.

I'd like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has been pre-ordering the 2nd print run for the Grimes Fanzine online - I completely miss calculated how many we would need and I'm really sorry about for the inconvenience! I've been in touch with the printers and I'm hoping they will be back in stock in about a fortnight. I have a handful of copies saved to take to the next convention....

The next event will be Midlands MCM Comic Con, Telford on Saturday 13th February. You can find table A16 in the Comic Village section (next to Laura Howell and Ryuuza) ! Please come and say hi because I have FREE MINI COMICS to hand
out!

It's con season again! I'm going to have a table (D5!!) at True Believers Comic Festival, Cheltenham tomorrow! - Saturday 6th February!

I'm currently nervously waiting in the house for GRIS#4 to be delivered from the printers ready to launch tomorrow. If they don't arrive in time and you were hoping to buy a copy at this particular con - I am offering free postage to anyone who 'preorders' at the show. I will have all the usual comics, zines, original ink drawings and merch (including drumsticks and glow in the dark plectrums) - but it's always worth coming to say hi because I have FREE MINI COMICS to hand out!!

I have 2 more things debuting tomorrow ...

It was Hourly Comic Day on Monday and I've printed A6 mini comics which includes gig sketches of John Grant and Soley from that day. The covers are printed on neon paper!

I compiled a Grimes fanzine through my music blog - That Music Zine.

All 3 new books are now available to order through my Etsy shop! There’s a list of more spring conventions in the webcomic homepage.

It’s a busy weekend for comics - Laydeez Do Comics Birmingham is on Monday 8th February! 7.30-9.30pm at The Victoria. Presentations by Lucie Ebrey aka muggybees, Verity Hall, and Alexandra McCarthy.

I compiled a Grimes Fanzine over the past couple of months through my music blog. I'm going to pick them up from the printers today! - Thanks to everyone involved.
