One Good Thing
One Good Thing is a diary comic drawn by Rachael Smith.
Rachael started this comic in 2011 in an effort to beat depression and look at the good things around her. As well as being therapeutic for Rachael herself, One Good Thing has also inspired many of it’s readers to be more positive as well.
“If One Good Thing is Rachael Smith’s attempt to deliver something good into the world, and make the reader’s day a little better by sharing life’s ups and downs, then this smile on my face says she’s done the job.”
Richard Bruton, Forbidden Planet International

EERIE PD by Jenny McKeon & Alex Chaunyan with Holly Caddick

Pg1 pg2

Eerie PD
Eerie PD is a weekly webcomic that follows the supernatural adventures of a gun-armed detective named Cam and his strange new partner, the magical girl Eiri. It is also the story of their hapless creators, Nathaniel and Hunter, and how these newly forged friendships interconnect and lead to exciting new stories!

Writer/Creators: Jenny McKeon & Alex Chaunyan
Jenny McKeon and Alex Chautin like comics almost as much as they like each other. Alex does most of the writing for Eerie PD while Jenny does most of the art, with some overlap between. When not working on their webcomic, they pretty much make more comics, as far as school and work will allow! The two creators live in western MA with their cat, Majora.
Guest Artist: Holly Caddick
I studied illustration at Bristol UWE, but moved to study in Swindon in the second year. I have made my glorious return to the motherland (Bristol) and am hoping to actually do some creative work. Colourist and co-author for Headcase, I haven’t done much work on comics in the past, The Inbetween being my first attempt although it’s been long in the making!
