a graphic piece of work...

So I am so utterly and absolutely delighted to be co-writing a graphic novel with my brother. We're about half way through now, and the team-writing thing is working well. In fact, so well, that I think I might not want to write on my own again!

It's called Dark Satanic Mills, and is V for Vendetta meets the Wizard of Oz, with a side-helping of William Blake. Won't say too much about it now because it won't be published for a good long while yet, but it's a dystopian vision of a future Britain on the verge of becoming a fundamentalist Theocracy. Bit sci-fi, bit noir, bit of a laugh. And writing with Julian is the best thing of all...

Thanks!

Want I really want to know at the moment is does anyone know anyone who can write apps for the iPad...? Can you imagine how great graphic novels etc will look glowing on an iPad screen, with interactive elements...
