A message from Jack &Mat…

Hi Readers!

We are extremely proud to announce the release of our all new book, BUILDING WORLDS: HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN COMIC BOOKS

BUILDING WORLDS is a guide that teaches readers of all ages the basics of storytelling.

BUILDING WORLDS sneakily explains how to write and draw your own stories during a whole new adventure through parallel worlds for some of the characters from our previous book, ALIEN IN THE OUTFIELD! It’s a how-to guide and a spin-off rolled into one!

We catch up with lovable loser Rendell, who’s now trying to make it big in the world of comics. Teaming up with the precocious Maggie, who wants to learn how to tell her own stories, the pair get lost in a fantastical world of their own creation – where anything they imagine can come to life. Their journey home is the setting for what becomes an instructional guide for young readers who want to know how to make their own comic books.

Using the skills and techniques taught in the book, the story can only be completed with the help of the reader. It’s Grant Morrison vibes for the Teen Titans Go generation! A fourth-wall-shattering book that entertains and informs!

Unfortunately, current events around the world have conspired to delay our printing, but we just can’t wait to share this book with you all. With the support of our generous Kickstarter backers and our friends at Gumroad, we’ve decided – for a limited time only – to make a digital pre-release copy of the book available for FREE DOWNLOAD. RIGHT NOW!


Any small tips would be gratefully received so we can keep our hand sanitizer topped up. We hope you’ll let us know what you think and share your adventures with us on the social media!

There isn’t anything new we can tell you about this virus – and we’re sure the smart science folks will be hard at work on this already – but what we can do is make sure you have plenty of awesome comics to read in the meantime!

We’re looking forward to all the new stories we’ll come up with once these crazy times have passed. Let’s all write some AMAZING ones together!


Jack & Mat

PS. You can still order print copies of our books from our SHOP page – including a pre-order of BUILDING WORLDS. ALIEN IN THE OUTFIELD is still available for FREE DOWNLOAD too!
