WARTS ‘n’ ALL
Way back in the early 1980s when Peter Haywood was hocking his cartoons around to every magazine publisher he could find; the editor at some Sunday papers described his work as “too zany” for the readers and the non-DE-plume “Zane” was born.
This is a great Volume One and well worth a follow up. Standby for details of the “Great Zane Book Launch” to be held at a venue in Richmond in early October. Details to follow …..
Its official, REVERIE Kickstarter edition of 304 issues has been sold out. The few remaining copies that are now available, go to the shop here to purchase. We will reprint very shortly with an updated edition of REVERIE #1. This will be the retail version and will be available in shops that stock Australian content. Part of the sold out 305 issues were 50 REVERIE Kickstarter Editions which are issues that were signed by 20 contributors. All will truly be a collectors’ must-have.
TOBY and the MAGIC PENCIL #1 has been a success and we are now working on issue #2. Negations have stalled on animation for TOBY but we will keep you informed. However on our TOBY song, it will hopefully be available soon. Toby #2 is once again a twisted tale of Magic, Fantasy and Adventure. Art-wise Dillion Naylor is brilliant.
TORN has finally been released. It’s been a long wait but well worth seeing George Hall and Peter Lawson’s awesome work. Look forward to seeing the interesting characters that will amaze and slide off the pages next two issues. Already sales are great on our web-site and the feedback is very interesting. Thank you for all your support. Red Gum, our local Aussie superhero, is the person you want around if in trouble. As for Daryl TORN, is he a hero or villain? Time will tell.
Coming up in the future. As you already know REVERIE #2 will be out and on Kickstarter very soon, don’t miss this edition; I hope you all will be back to support us. RIC McCLUNE as you know is a western comic and currently in pre-production. Loving westerns as I do, this is the one to purchase. A finished painted cover will be on show soon. THE CHRONICLES OF VORN is our first Sci-Fi title currently in production now and we have already generated a large number of pre-sales. A cover sample is on show within the pages of TORN. Well worth the look. Purchase now on our web-site. HOONSVILLE is our second sci-fi title with a cover very soon. This is a must have.
