Etsy Store Closed

I've now closed my Etsy store. Inutially, it yielded a flurry of orders for The Signal Man and Bulldog, but, even with promotional discounts, not one copy of Amnesia Agents was purchased from the Etsy store, and The Signal Man sales had stopped. Some outlets seem right for comics: this one wasn't.

A Hundred Years To Arras: ready and raring to go!

I've finished a draft of the book, still titled 'A Hundred Years To Arras' at time of writing, and submitted to a select few agents. Two have already replied. Not for them. It's an interesting process. Received wisom is that getting an agent is a preferable way to get your book under the eyes of a publisher. However, an agent is neither necessary nor desirable with getting comics work published. I've always worked directly with a publisher where comics are concerned. Prose, however, is another kettle of fish. I've also approached publishers directly, and in my experience I've had more response and interest that way. Of course, not all publishers are open to unsolicited submissions. So, we're now in that stage of the game where I'm waiting to see what happens, and that will determine whether another draft is needed and so on. The story now exists, and it's just a matter of seeing how it'll become revealed to the world.

In the meantime, there's still time to buy my latest issue of Commando, so what are you waiting for?

I have two other ideas for novels, both of which I'm about to start work on, and then let's see which develops fully first...

New Commando out now!

Out now from WH Smith!!! Written by me - art by Carlos Pino!

The marines of 3 Commando didn’t know what would kill them first: being blown apart by a landmine, shot down by an Argentinian sniper, or freezing to death in the icy southern winter.
After entering a war on the other side of the world, many did not understand why Britain was fighting so hard to keep the Falkland Islands… but they would learn.

Nottingham Comic Convention 20th October 2018:

I did this one this year - the first time. This was a fun convention, although I didn't see much of tied to my table for most of the duration. A really nice venue and clearly organised by real fans - and there were lots of kids about!

There was anice write up in the local paper, even if the young lady got my home town wrong (but that's OK). Check it out here:

Amnesia Agents Reviews

"Jason Cobley dabbles in an oddly intriguing concept for Amnesia Agents... A cryptic premise is given a raucous execution by the shortness of the comic itself.
...It reads like an episode of The X-Files on speed... There’s a definite, high level charm in how keen Cobley and artist James Gray are in thrusting you into this story of mystery and action".
"We'd recommend this, especially if you enjoy the blending of fantasy with reality, such as Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman".
