Hello again children of the Internet!
Just a quick post to mention a few things I forgot to mention on Monday's post...

First off the bat, is the recent release of the new e-book from the one and only Luke J Halsall.
Titled 'Payback', this is the second installment of the incredible Sam o Hara and Jessica McIntyre thriller series and if you haven't checked it out before now, you can get a sneak preview of the first three chapters by following the link below. You'll be glad you did!

Next up is a little look-ahead at great things coming from 'Big Bad' John Clarke; here's a page from 'Geoffrey' a short horror story that is going to be part of a 'GLoW: Horror Anthology' coming your way later this year. (More on this later!)
I have to be honest, I've read the script for this and I have to say it's going to be fantastic.

As I'm writing this, there's also a whole load of stuff I really want to show-and-tell to you all about a little thing called Project: Lazarus coming out a little later on as well... but I can't.
See it's really not in my nature to be mysterious, but I can't talk about it.
And I can't talk about why.
*cue dramatic music*

Alright you lot? How's things? Having a good week so far? That's good.
As always, there's been a whole lot of awesome stuff going on this week. 
Here's the latest...

First up, as some of you probably know, over at thestandardcomic.com, our very own John Lees released the cover art for his The Standard #3 (drawn by the incredible Jonathan Rector.)





Recieving 7 (SEVEN!!!) nominations at the Eagle Awards in London this coming May, the Standard is not to be missed! I just feel sorry for the skunk...

Next up is the one and only Gordon McLean's ongoing short film project 'Dying Light'.

Aside from telling you that it will be coming to us from an award-winning crew of film makers (2009 Bafta Scotland New Talent Award for Multimedia) who have produced numerous short films and TV content for the likes of BBC Scotland, Scottish Screen, the UK Film Council, STV to name a few, I don't think I need to say much more about it... 
It looks amazingly good. Just look at that poster!

In other news, if my calculations are correct; today is Monday and that can only mean one thing.
Another latest installment in Colin Bell's JonBot vs. Martha epic is upon us, and for all you crazy internet kids out there, it looks like this one's just for you...




If that's not enough, GLoW is going to hold a table at the upcoming Comic Mart at the QMU in Glasgow on the Wednesday April 25th. There's going to be a whole load of cool stuff on sale and it's always a great way to pick up something new. (More details will follow.)

Right, okay...  
Yup, I think that's it for now! As always, feel free to leave a comment on here to let us know what you think and don't forget to check us out on the Twitter and Facebook.
