Bluegrass Bomb-blast!

I want to give you a quick update on what I've been up to this week. I've been having so much fun! I mentioned in my last post that I was hoping to get caught up in a musical collaboration. I also shared a video from +stephen jedlicka with you. Well, would you believe it, I've teamed up with Stephen to lay down some tunes! What are the odds of that?

I'm really excited about this latest collaboration. Expect a largely acoustic set in that offbeat Bluegrass style that I've been experimenting with of late. You know me... the first song tells a little more of the Bad Moon legend. I can't stop listening to it. Once we've figured out a name, you might even get to hear it soon yourself! Ha ha

Complete Zombies vs. Robots

Tonight I'm back on the comic trail with a very quick review. The comic I bought was IDW's 2009 compilation comic called ZOMNIBUS, but I'm only going to talk about one bit: the outstanding Complete Zombies vs. Robots.

ZOMNIBUS is a compilation of 3 parts:

Zombies!: Feast by Shane McCarthy, Chris Bolton and Enrique Lopez Lorenzana - a so-so zombie apocalypse story.

Zombies!: Eclipse of the Dead by El Torres and Yair Herrera - another so-so zombie apocalypse story

Complete Zombies vs. Robots by Chris Ryall and Ashley Wood

Dead but not forgotten...

I've been writing this damn blog for a long, long time and so far haven't had to resort to a "where the hell have I been" post. There's a first time for everything I guess. I can see that it's been a long while since my last update and even longer since I did anything worthwhile worth talking about.

The funny thing is: I've been really busy, but I don't seem to have a whole lot to show for it. Surely I must have been up to something? Let's see...

I've been patiently waiting for my last comic "Dead Hand" to be available in all the usual retail outlets. It seems that this comic in particular has been taking far longer than the others did to work its way through the system. At the time of writing it's been well over a month and it still hasn't hit the Amazon shelves. Pah! The other comics have now racked up 1000+ downloads!

Foolishly, I've begun work on part 4... "The Lost Man". I'm about half way through it's production and I must say that if you thought the first three were a little obtuse, then you're in for a real treat here. It's an odd mix of psychedelia and gothic horror all melded together like a cowboy's worst nightmare. I can't decide yet whether it is a work of twisted genius or complete folly. I will only know if I make it to the end. So far the ride has been great fun. Unlike previous comics, I haven't shared a great deal of the artwork on Google+, but if you go looking, you'll find most of chapter 1 and a few hints of what is in store.
