Return of the Zombies

Return of the Zombies

I’m looking forward to going to Prague for an-all day comic event at Prague City Library on Friday 28th September. I’ll be chatting about my career, 2000 AD, and – most important of all – the return of 17th century zombie-hunter Defoe, drawn by Scottish...
