Meet the team….

Comic book production is, for the most part, a team event. Have a look at your favourite comic book and you’ll see a good half dozen people will of worked on each issue: writer, penciller, inker, colourist, letterer, editor, publisher, etc.

Here at the Gee Bees we may not have as many people but we are definitely a team. First off there is Steven D Quirke, our writer (and who is really struggling typing about himself in the third person at the moment so bare with me/him). He’s the dreamer and mythomane* who comes up with the adventures and characters you enjoy reading.

Alongside Steve is our artist Kel Winser, a splendidly bearded man who is currently defying the laws of nature by somehow teaching art while studying art (an MA in Illustration no less) and drawing the latest Gee Bee adventure. Obviously the East Coast has more than the normal 24 hours that the rest of us get to use.

Another fella who’s work ethic puts us all to shame is our letterer Michael Stock. Name a British small press title published in the last five years and chances are our Mike had a hand in its production.

The nature of our stories and the numerous Gideon’s and Katrina’s means we are open to tell different stories, in different genres and with different artists. So if you are an artist get in touch as we have, at least, two other “GBs” whose stories are coming soon. Go to our contact page and fill in the email form and we’ll chat about the prospects of working together. Who knows you may have the thrill of a hastily typed out piece saying odd things about you.

Introductions

“Every generation there is a Gideon Black and there is a Katrina. Fate brings them together to face the machinations of Maximilian and his Grotesques. These are their stories….”

Welcome to the version two of the web presence of The Gee Bees Comic. We have slowly evolved over the last two years and felt we needed to reflect that change in the website.

The biggest two changes in this version of the website is this here blog, where our writer Steve (Hello), will talk on occasion about various subjects as they occur to him.Mainly about writing and a few topics that are raised through the future comic’s storylines.

The other biggest change to the website is those comics. Where as before we had our first story up and ready to read for free now we have samples of our work and links to the digital copies of our titles you can purchase.

So far we have issue one of The Grand Tour “Back in Training” and the short story “The October House” which appeared in the 2014 “Halloween” anthology. You can also purchase the three issues that make up “The Grand Tour” through Comixology. The first issue of our next story “The Meditating Businessman” is due in April.

We are also on Twitter where we announce convention dates and other little titbits. We’ll sit down and talk here soon I promise….
