Here's a hamfisted attempt at a poster for the book. "Life is hard, but Death is harder..." Ha ha. You've just got to love that tagline!
I agonised about the best way to publish and in the end I chose to limit distribution to ebooks. As much as I would have loved to have seen a pallet of printed comics as pictured here, this is not for this project.
If you've been following this blog or my antics on Google+ or Facebook, you will have picked up that I've been on a cowboy kick for quite some time. I've been weaving my own take on the genre through various bits of music and artwork. This graphic novel attempts to tie all of the different threads together. Front and centre is the story; Bad Moon tries to bring sense to everything that has been going on in my life over this past year. I've found the exercise of producing the comic hugely enjoyable. It's taught me loads about the process, but more importantly, it's also helped me to collect my thoughts.
I recommend everybody makes a comic. Give it a go!
Bad Moon is available from Lulu.com and if it gets through quality control, it may even make its way into Barnes & Noble and iBooks.
I can't stop myself sometimes. Perhaps I should also do some merchandise for the comic launch! Ha ha. What cowgirl could resist a King Uke printed top? Don't answer!
Last night, Mrs Uke asked me what I'm going to do next. Am I going to write another comic? The answer was a resounding "NO". I need a break from this project. I want to do something completely different. There's always something that needs to be done... My challenge is to figure out what that something is ;-)
