Harris also authored the long-running web comics Paper Cuts and Eustace, both published on H2G2 under the pseudonym spimcoot.[4] During time spent with an artists' collective in Angoulême, France, he also contributed satirical French cartoons to a daily Charente newspaper, again under the name spimcoot.

His novel length version of the Eustace comics, 'Eustace', was published in hardback by Jonathan Cape in March 2013.
