    Mr Benjamin Paddon and I have been working on a new Red Dwarf comic, and as we just passed the halfway point of making it, I figured now’d be a good time to post up a little preview. No dialogue yet, just a bit of artwork from the first half of the story. I’m hoping to have it all complete and posted before the end of Dec. Maybe. Anyway, in the meantime, have a goosey…

    “Songs In The Key Of Files” – what happens when one man’s guitar playing and one hologram’s dirty little secrets collide…

    I’m certainly pleased with it. Kris has been sending me previews (with the dialogue included) and I’m very happy with the way it all looks. Although I’ve been writing Jump Leads for nearly three years now I’ve never once tried to write a comic script.

    Jump Leads is written in screenplay format and then the scenes are blocked, if you like, by JjAR. For this, Kris asked me to write in a more traditional comic script format. He was incredibly helpful with the formatting, as well as tightening up the script and coming up with a belter of an ending. He also helped trim the dialogue to make it fit the comic format better. One of my favourite character moments got lost in the cut, but the story flows all the better for it.

    I can’t wait to see it all finished!

    You said you didn’t draw when I asked you, Kris!

    Looking good, though. Nice simplistic designs, which I think are important for something like this. Like the framing in that shot of the Dwarf, as well.

    Holly does look like Rimmers dad though….same nose.

    I was wondering whether that was actually Holly. He seems to have a bit too much hair (and grey hair at that) to be Holly.

    Looks great though. Love the Rimmer character design.

    Yeah, that’s Hol. Look at the nose! :)

    Holly does look like Archie Mitchell, though. Only sayin’.

    The pictures are great, but the words are great too. Honest!

    I agree with Seb, the clean look gives this real appeal.

    Speaking of RD comic stuff, Si you should show off your unfinished Tom Baker panels because it really is great.

    >Holly does look like Archie Mitchell, though. Only sayin?.

    I was about to write that Norm with grey hair and that much hair looks a bit like Gavin’s Dad from Gavin & Stacey. I don’t watch EastEnders, but now I’m assuming it’s the same actor.

    It is the same actor….erm, shit! Now they all know that I know….

    If only there existed some kind of online resource where we could check which actors appear in which TV shows without having to have watched them. A sort of… Internet Database, if you will.

    Dammit Seb, your hypotheticals and conjectures are no use to us now! What we need is facts!

    If only I weren’t at work where such things were blocked. No Hotmail, no facebook, no YouTube, No IMDb.

    G & T available for all though.

    Luckily I’m not blocked – yes Larry Lamb plays both Archie Mitchell in Eastenders and Mick in Gavin & Stacey

    My episode was on tonight and they cut my dancing with Rob Brydon out :(

    I’m barely visible in the background. Bastards!

    On a PURELY coincidental note, after a pretty poor first two episodes in this series, tonight’s was actually quite good I thought.

    It’s nearly finished, or so I’m told. Can’t wait to see the finished article. Re-reading the script now, a year later, there are some jokes I’d change (there’s a Cat line on page one that really rubs me the wrong way now) but I’m still excited!

    Just waiting for Ben to look over it, and then I’ll post it. Phew!
