Some of you may have been following the fortunes of John Blake in the DFC, a weekly comic that began publishing in May 2008 and which sadly has fallen victim, like many other things, to the current financial situation.

John Blake is a story I was writing, and which never, alas, had the chance to come to its end in the DFC. Everyone connected with the comic hopes that the DFC will rise again one day, and so do thousands of readers, but the story of John Blake must be told. So I’m going to write it as a film and as a graphic novel. Watch here for more news.
