Tower Block US DVD/Blu-ray release

Tower Block lands on US shiny discs on July 2nd, courtesy of the good people at the marvellously named Shout! Factory. You can pre-order now, on DVD and Blu-ray, from their website, or from Amazon here and here. You can read one of many website reports on the release here, in which I'm called "notable cult film and TV scribe James Moran". Notable! I feel like noted fashion photographer Nigel Barker! Except I haven't been fired from ANTM! Yet! Apart from that, we are *identical*, me and Nigey-babes.

I'm very pleased that I'll be in America when it's released, as I'm going to the CONvergence event in Minneapolis - excitingly, that means I can have the American experience, and go to a "store", in a "mall", to hand over some "dollars" and buy "it"! Like some kinda wiseguy! Apple pie and freedom! And other American expressions!

At some point it'll be hitting all the usual VOD streaming places you'd expect, so keep an eye out for it. Watch it at night, turn the lights off, crank the sound up - and keep away from the windows...

Dead Roots issue 2 out now

Dead Roots, the zombie anthology comic, is now on issue 2 - which features my story, Many Happy Returns. It starts with a child's birthday party. As you'd expect from me, the party does not end well.

The art is by Rebecca Morse, colours by Nathan Ashworth, and letters by Mike Stock. I'm really pleased with how it came out, and I love the other stories in the issue, so go have a look. It's 47 pages long, and costs £2.99 in the UK iBookstore, $4.99 in the US, or €3.99 for Euro-disco-funksters.

While you're at it, you can still get our free taster issue of VS Comics, from this very link here. Well, it's technically free, our online shop has a minimum payment thing, but it's only a penny. Which, if you do some complicated (and incorrect) mathematics, is actually better than free! Sort of. I don't know, I do words, not number-things. VS is up to issue 4 now, and each full anthology issue is just £2 from our website - PDFs, no region locking, no DRM, just tasty comics. It contains vampires, but don't worry, they're not broody, romantic heroes, they're proper, nasty, old-school monsters who will rip your throat open, drain your blood, and insult you while they're doing it. As is right and proper.
