Maybe it was Night of the living dead that sparked the idea of Flesheater.
Around 2002 I was consuming a lot of horror flicks and books. I wanted to make a comic inspired by this and Grey Sky was the result. It was my first self published outing and was an anthology. Issue one had a main story called Tunnel of fear, a dystopian commuter yarn that I still really like.
By issue two ambition had grown and I wanted to write an ongoing strip.
Well Flesheater was the result. It made it as far as two issues before I then got distracted with autobio. There was going to be an ongoing theme of tainted dog food turning people into the undead, a Government conspiracy and maybe some supernatural elements too. Pretty much the kitchen sink. I moved on and Grey Sky became history.
Douglas Noble had decided to run a monthly title, pocket chillers. We have collaborated on two issues, ( I woke up like this, our rebel skin) and I suggested that maybe, Flesheater could be a good fit for this. It would need a bit of work, and Douglas happily agreed to get onboard and freshen it up. So here it is, 18 years later. I don’t even want to think of the chunk of time that has passed between these two versions, that’s for another post.
Suffice to say, I liked the original, and I REALLY like this comic. Main reason is collaborating with Douglas. He always manages to inspire something new from my work, and he’s managed it again.

On a cold, bright December morning in the 1970s, the rock star Wallace Sendek vanished. Since then, he has been seen dozens of times around the world, by old fans and strangers to his work. His silhouette is etched in the lines of every map, his shadow at the corner of the street, reflection in every window.
Wallace Sendek has disappeared; this is record of his sightings.

A bit of a history lesson
Life’s a party, a collection of self published autobiographical comic books. Written and drawn by Sean Azzopardi and published by Strip for me. It all started in 2010 with a collection of work titled 100 days of Winter.
Ten years later there are now eight issues with a further two in development. The intention was never to make a large work, or to continue beyond the first comic. But I’m inspired by collections such as The years have pants, (Eddie Campbell) or American Splendour ( Harvey Pekar) and have decided to continue. The parts published or in the process of being completed are as follows.
- 100 days of Winter
- Nine months of beige
- Eight tablet dream
- Same day return
- Rain on Glass
- Last Orders
- One for the road ( Published 2021)
- The morning after the night before ( Published 2021 )
Strip for me are publishing digital versions via ComiXology. It was Douglas ( Noble) that came up with the title and the idea of collecting everything together into a single volume.
It was the 1980s”
A beating, a nightclub, the sound of rock music and the roar of engines. The bleached smile of a skull. Black Leather is a wild ride of heavy metal, motorbikes and the explosion of youth. A tragedy of first love, of sacrifice, and of discovery, Black Leather is the scream of yesterday echoing right now.
A comic by Sean Azzopardi and Douglas Noble, creators of Sightings of Wallace Sendek, Built of Blood & Bricks and After the Sessions.
