You can now order Halcyon & Tenderfoot: The Complete Collection from artheroes.bigcartel.com.

136 pages of exciting super hero comics following a young sidekick on his journey to becoming a hero.

We’ve been working in a lot of schools recently for Newcastle and Gateshead Libraries. On Friday, we visited Kenton School to a fantastic reception from Mr Wilkinson and other members of staff - and the Year 7 pupils we worked with.
And now Mr Wilkinson has sent us this great ‘thank you’ image. It’s the nicest thing we’ve ever received from a teacher. You can see the rest of Mr Wilkinson’s art on his Facebook page.
