Brickman Begins: Sold Out!

Published in 2005 by U.S. company Active Images, Brickman Begins! collected all my earliest Brickman strips from 1979 to 1996, along with a stack of all-new guest art pages by comics royalty such as Alan Davis, Tim Sale, Hunt Emerson and many more.

The 152 page book was sold worldwide in comics shops and online, and I had several hundred myself to sell by post and at conventions. As from today, Brickman Begins! is SOLD OUT. My thanks to all of you who bought a copy over the years! It's long out of print so no longer available from Active Images either.

I'll be honouring the orders I've received up to today of course with the few remaining books, but I've now deleted it from my online shop.

There's a possibility I may do a reprint of sorts at some time next year, via Amazon's Print On Demand service. There will be differences from the first printing though, as I won't imitate Active Images' design and bonus pages obviously as that was just for their edition. Any new edition I do of the book will just focus on the comic strip pages, but at present that's only a plan for the future. 

All my other comics are still available though! You can order those from my online shop at this link:

Congratulations, chap.

I'm a massive proponent of [...] on Demand publishing; an absolute godsend for self-publishing creators and even large companies when dealing with low volume titles.

As an example, Warner Bros. makes extensive use of Manufacture on Demand for DVD and Blu-ray releases of archive material that would never justify a full-scale run.

It's something I'd really like to see DC Thomson (and maybe Rebellion) utilise instead of just sitting on vast archives and doing nothing with them.
