BATTERSEA POWER WALK
In the latest of my trips to document London's bridges photographically, here's five photos taken of or near Battersea Bridge (two of the bridge itself, one of a pub called the Cross Keys, a statue of Thomas Carlyle and a rather shiny gold statue of Thomas More)…

NORTH LONDON SECRET
Recently, when Dave Morris came up, we went to visit a place in Hampstead, just on the Heath, which I didn't even know about but is quite amazing. it's called the Pergola and is tucked away behind North End Road and is fantastic, especially in the sunshine. So here are three photos I took when I went to visit it last weekend…

TRIPWIRE ANNUAL SOLICITED
So at last after a few months of buildup, the TRIPWIRE Annual is in Previews Vol. XVII #5. Listed in the Books section, it's exciting to see it in the public domain at last. It makes it feel properly real. So I'm going to ask everybody who reads this to order it in a shameless attempt to increase our orders.
Our efforts to get a new publisher for Studio Space continue apace and it's now with five publishers. We have an offer on the table and hope to wrap things up by the summer. So, as always, I'll keep everyone posted…

Lots of interesting developments on the Studio Space book and Annual front and possibly some long-term unexpected TRIPWIRE news. As ever, I'll keep everyone informed…

ANNUAL PREVIEW

Here's a preview of some page designs from the TRIPWIRE Annual. It's looking very nice.
So we have the front page design for the Alan Moore feature and the front spread for the Heroes feature…
I'll be putting pages up as I go…
I went to see the Bryan Talbot Alice In Sunderland talk yesterday. As I always do at these things, I bumped into many of the usual suspects (Mike Carey, Rich Johnston, Adrian Brown). But I also saw someone I hadn't seen in about four years. Back in 2003, at the end of TRIPWIRE's brief colour monthly incarnation, Simon Miller, who wrote for Borderline, with his wife/ partner (whose name escapes me here) was kind enough to give me and Gary a lift back to London from Bristol. I never saw him again but yesterday I bumped into him outside the Plough, the pub next to where Talbot's talk was taking place. What was even stranger is that I had seen him earlier in the day in Covent Garden when I was walking to work, thought he looked familiar and thought nothing more of it until I saw him (ramble over)…
The talk was very enlightening and I have a copy of Alice in Sunderland, which I'll be reviewing on the blog when I get the chance to…
By the way, everyone should vote for Andy Winter and Declan Shalvey's Hero Killers in the Eagles. Here's the URL:
