We’re still recovering from the amazingness that was New York Comic Con (lots of pics to come) and now we’re back home things are busier than ever. If you were at the show you will have got an exclusive look at our spin off title following a younger Afroella, but if you weren’t, fear not because we can now reveal it to the world.
If you’d like to get your hands on a print of this image, we’re now offering it as an exclusive reward to everyone who pledges £30 or more to our kickstarter campaign. With a little under 34 hours left there’s no better time to pledge your support for Afroella. Follow the link here Afroella Kickstarter

We don’t often blog real life science stories but this one we couldn’t pass by. It seems a team of astronomers in Hawaii have discovered a brand new pink planet that greatly resembles the mysterious planet Kroma, the setting for Afroellas current adventures and the source of the robot menace.
Apparently if you point your telescopes towards the Virgo constellation and look for the bright spot, that is in fact where you’ll find planet Kro…ahem we mean…GJ504b .
Even better though, with a sun much hotter than ours, we’re going to assume the beaches are amazing!
Now we have no concept of how far 57 light years is but it can’t take any longer than an East Coast Railway journey from London to Leeds (ask Gemma) so pack your bikinis people, let’s all go to GJ 504b
As a treat here’s a little something to brighten up your desktop…a super awesome Afroella#2 wallpaper!
We’ve just returned from a fantastic weekend at London Super Comic Con where we debuted the brand spanking new redesigned cover for Afroella#2.
So now without further ado, may we present it here to the world of Tumblr.
BOOM BOOM POW!
Click the pic above to catch our audio interview at Kapow Comic Con with Jimmy Aquino of Comic News Insider alongside some great interviews with Gary Erskine, Mark Millar and Jonathan Ross to name a few [we’re around 1:14:30 just after Gary Erskine]
This week sees the second year of Kapow Comic Con and we’re happy to say we’ll be there with bells on! Come and swing by and say hi (we love to chat!) or if you fancy you can get your hands on your copy of Afroella and some pretty awesome merch to go with…you might catch 1 or two cheeky surprises from us too along the way.
Remember to check out the website at http://kapowcomicconvention.com the lineup is looking fantastic with Lucha Wrestling, some amazing comics talent and plenty of previews for upcoming movies (Amazing Spiderman FTW!)
A little overdue , here’s a few pics from our table at London Super Comic Con . This was the first year for London Super Comic Con and have to say the organisers did a great job in making it memorable. An amazing lineup of artists and writers made for a fantastic weekend made even better by the presence of the great Stan Lee. It’s rare for a comics show to purely concentrate on comics and this was a refreshing move.
so without further ado…
Our table of Afroella wares , buy buy buy, sell sell sell!
The tentacular multi tentacle Crackenhol monster was the theme of the day with cutouts , badges and plush tentacle.
pretty soon the tentacle had developed a mind of its own [good for him there was plenty of reading material around ;) ]
Never let it be said that Gem doesn’t know how to pose …
Though by Sunday, tiredness had started to kick in and coffee was in order , luckily Gemma perfected the art of still looking awesome while asleep on her feet so Lee could make the run….
One fail in that plan is Lee could only do the same with support…
and is prone to Crakenhol night terrors!!!
We had a fantastic time, made plenty of sales and gained some great feedback from new and old faces alike. Apart from the militant Excel security staff who took a sadistic glee in their job come kicking out time, we had a very warm welcome for Afroella and we can’t wait for next year. See y’all there :)
