I have a new short comic out, “Birdie” for DC Vertigo’s The Witching Hour anthology, illustrated by amazing Cape Town artist Gerhard Human.

A little witch who scavenges the dumps of a future Cape Town for messages from the dead is dragged into solving a gang murder.

Lots of South Africanisms and a call back to Zoo City in the story – and the art is just gorgeous and amazing.

Gerhard posted a selection of sneak previews to his Behance page. Or pick up The Witching Hour at your local comic shop, my BUY page or on Comixology.
