Mark Andrew Smith sent me a pdf of NEW BRIGHTON ARCHEOLOGICAL SOCIETY, BOOK ONE: THE CASTLE OF GALOMAR (ComicSpace preview). The graphic novel will be in stores next Wednesday, March 4th. I had a chance to read it today during my lunch break. I enjoyed NBAS. Mark's story moved in some fun, imaginative, and unexpected directions. Matthew Weldon's art is exciting and perfectly styled for the all-ages audiences. In fact, Mark has always had a gift for finding great artistic talent, i.e. Dan Hipp on AMAZING JOY BUZZARDS and Paul Maybury on AQUA LEUNG, and also for crafting uniquely appealing concepts. Kudos.
