Okay gang,

Been feverishly working away with a fantastic co-writer, Robert Sammelin, and we have finished our first graphic novel. We've posted a few pages (low-res tough to read) as samples, I'd love to hear what you think...

Can't read the words at all but the pictures look nice anyway.

That's the problem with the low res scan - each image is 30mb plus, at full quality, these are 96k max I think...

Otherwise it would take 2 hours to download into explorer...

Kane, I have done umpteen comics scripts over the years and worked with around 20 artists, and I gotta say that you'd easily rank in the top five of them.

Any chance I could get a copy of this graphic novel. Let me know the cost. Post back or email.

Solaar

Solaar,

I don't know what to say, thank you... seriously, this is a labour of love but I have high hopes for it... As for a copy, we'll be test printing a number of copies next week and mailing them off to the agent to hawk around, I'll run you off an extra copy. Again, thank you for taking the time to check the samples out.

Hey, no problem - I just loved what I saw. My favourite was the single picture (8.jpg) - guess what my wallpaper now is! :D

Listen, I got a friend who runs a website aimed at showing off artists work (all comic-orientated), which also sends out an occasional booklet to reviewers and stuff.

The address is

www.temple-apa.co.uk

Might be worth taking a look. I've just messaged him the web-address for your pictures.

Do you want me to send you my address? I'll cover the postage for you.

Solaar
thinks Dark Horse comics needs you!

First off - hey DARK HORSE would be a DREAM... you got connections :)

my email is stevesavile@email.com shoot me your address and don't worry about the postage - if this is ever really collectable you can buy me a beer when you tell everyone how you got an original test printing...

As to the website, going to check it out now, thanks so much, and feel free to cc me in on any mail.

Thank you

Visually, this is great stuff. Reminiscent of Alex Ross and Ashley Wood. A smoother Ashley Wood.
