My Favourite [01 Jan 2014|11:41pm]

Here’s a look at my favourite comics page of 2013 (by me). It’s one that pops up in Youthful Attack, and one that’s close to my heart.

Hopefully the coming year will have a whole lot more pages that look like this. Youthful Attack is, of course, still available right on the site.

Just a quick word… [21 Nov 2013|11:44pm]

Go on now and take a look at Broken Frontier, where Andy Oliver has the first review of Youthful Attack.

“…there’s no one in the small press who makes me think about their comics in quite the same way as Douglas Noble does.”

That’s what they’re saying.

Youthful Attack [11 Nov 2013|09:15pm]

 

YOUTHFUL ATTACK

The latest comic from Douglas Noble is the war comic to end all war comics.  A break in the line. A dive headfirst into the heart of an explosion.  A landscape that doesn’t care. The end of the line.

…there’s no one in the small press who makes me think about their comics in quite the same way as Douglas Noble does.” – Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier

Youthful Attack is a 32 page comic with very colour covers. It will, of course, change your life.

Watch Out For Attack! [05 Nov 2013|09:12pm]

New for Thought Bubble will be this little beauty.  Those of you who follow my tumblr or instagram will no doubt have seen lots of the art from inside, but this is how it looks when it’s covered up.  More details in the run up!

Robotnik Reviewed [27 Jun 2013|12:51am]

Hey gang, did you see that there’s a new review of Robotnik up at Broken Frontier.  That splendid Andy Oliver fellow says things like this:

“Morbidly witty and yet oddly poignant, Robotnik eschews Noble’s sometimes deliberately vague storytelling style for something atypically direct and obvious.”

You should go and read all the other words too.

Mr Spoqui! [16 May 2013|12:00pm]

What’s this? Why, it’s issue forty of Mr Spoqui, the family magazine of the Baeza’s, spinning out of Portugal and travelling all over the world from there. This issue is on the subject of islands, and features a  new one page strip from me called Today a Stranger Walks With Us. As if that’s not enough, it also features contributions from Alessandro Ripane, Eduardo Vaz, Éndrjü, Inga Gaile, Jean de Wet, Ji Hyun Yu, Kodi Fabricant and Thales Lira.

I really enjoyed seeing this, and I think that you would too.  Get yourself on over to the website to find out where you can get a copy for yourself.

This Romantic [13 May 2013|12:00pm]

So, 69 Love Songs Illustrated was featured on Buzzfeed yesterday, as well it should be, as it’s a wonderful collection of comics.  If you’ve not been to take a look at the site, it’s a collection of adaptations of the songs on the Magnetic Fields’ album, 69 Love Songs.  If you poke around long enough you can find two strips there by me, How Fucking Romantic and Two Kinds of People.

Somewhat surprisingly, one of the comics that Buzzfeed chose to highlight was How Fucking Romantic, by myself, which was lovely of them. You should go and check out the rest though.

It’s all about them, when it’s all about me [10 May 2013|12:00pm]

If you haven’t already checked out the relaunched Broken Frontier site, you should really take a moment and throw yourself in there – in the last week, there have been reviews of such British favourites as Rob Jackson, Jon McNaught and Katie Green, and there’s also a rather fine interview up with Owen Pomery, who has this to say:

“I admire Douglas Noble’s persistent pursuit of experimentation, which is a reminder not to become blinkered and sometimes you need to roll the dice a little more.”

This is terribly nice of him.  If you’ve not checked out Owen’s work, you owe it to yourself to give it a shot. It lies somewhere in between Rick Geary and François Schuiten, and is weird and obsessive in just the way that you like. Go and find out for yourself.

Who’s Been Fooled? [06 May 2013|09:29pm]

There’s a new review of Don’t Be Fooled by the Rocks up over at The Forbidden Planet International Blog today, and Richard Bruton makes a great case for what he thinks the comic is about.

“…it IS meant to have greater meaning. It’s not JUST a few rocks nicely drawn on the pages. And the trick here is that it’s not the author who’s doing the lion’s share of the work, it’s you, and me, the reader. So you start really going into it, start pulling ideas and imagery. Occasionally something resonates… Hertha’s Mace may well be named after the Germanic goddess of fertility, Lob’s Pound may just be referencing the NE England folklore Lob creature similar to Hob, Hobgoblins, and Puck. But equally some things are just out there…The Ivy Jury, Faid’s Rest, The Hindmost  Catch. What do they mean?”

It’s well worth the read, and it’s interesting to see Richard’s suggestions what some of the stories behind the rocks might be. He might be off the mark on Lob’s Pound though, or perhaps exactly right. The only thing I missed was a mention of this.

Do remember, you can still buy it right here on the website. You should too.

Line up in line [29 Apr 2013|12:28am]

What are you doing on Saturday?  Nothing planned?  Right, sort yourself out and come into London, where you’ll be able to find me amongst the stellar line-up at lineup at the Mall Gallery, selling comics and making a nuisance of myself.  More on this through the week, of course.

For Your Attention [26 Apr 2013|12:03pm]

Just a quick note to point out that the Forbidden Planet International blog have a little shout-out  for Don’t Be Fooled by the Rocks over at their site today. They’ve always been very kind to me, and consistently put up with my nonsense, so po on over and take a look. You won’t learn any thing new, but you will see mention of at least one thing I won’t do if you buy a copy.

They say nice things, those people out there [22 Apr 2013|11:47am]

Don’t be Fooled by the Rocks seems to be going down well, judging from reaction at Comiket, and people are even talking about t on the internet!  People like the splendid Paul Rainey, of Thunder Brother and Memory Man fame! He said:

one of the most audacious comics I’ve encountered for a long time

I’m not arguing.

Don’t be Fooled by the Rocks will be available to buy on the website tomorrow. It’s a limited edition of fifty, so it might not last for very long…
