Well crikey, it's taken slightly over a year but I've finally navigated the torrid waters of a busy work and home life to finish issue four (of six, oh god still two more to go!) of The Absence! I have it in my sweaty little hand, look:
If you're so inclined, you can buy a copy here. It's £3.50, and 68 pages long (SIXTY! EIGHT!). Thanks in advance and please do let me know what you think!


  1. I've just noticed no-one has commented and felt duty-bound to add a comment. Martin, the story is really interesting. It has flavours - for me - of the Wicker Man, Strangehaven and other things I can't quite remember. But that's what the story does to me, it places me in an Enid Blyton-type world that has a shimmer of evil - where she never would have!
    I love the waiting between issues by the way, because as Richard of FP Blog says it means I have to re-read the lot again....no bad thing!
    Thanks a lot Martin!

  2. Thanks, Norman!

    Really pleased you're enjoying it (and glad the long waits between issues aren't causing too much of a pain!)

    Thanks for taking the time to leave a message - it's lovely to find out that people are reading and actually taking pleasure from the comic!
