Update + a new custom sketch speeds into view!

Hello again backers, Dave here with another update for you all. We’ve smashed the £1,300 mark, and if we manage to hit £1,350 we will upgrade the comic’s cover to full colour. So if you know of someone who may like to back us, please do send them to the campaign page. Work on page 14 continues and we should have something to show you soon. It has slowed a little as we’re making a start on the custom sketches for our £20 backers, but rest assured it’s on the way. Lastly, here is our latest custom sketch. I won’t reveal who asked for it for the sake of privacy, but here is Sonic the Hedgehog doing his best Jack from Bust impression: Thanks again everyone, and speak soon!...

Custom backer sketches have begun!

Hello backers! We hope you’ve been having a great weekend so far. Thanks to all of our £20 and £50 backers who have sent us their custom sketch requests and photos. Chris is chipping away at the request pile while working on page 14 of the comic. £50 backers will start to see themselves appearing in the comic from page 19 so stay tuned for your cameos! Here is the first backer sketch to give you an idea of the quality and hard work Chris has put into them. It’s a bit ‘naughty’ so I won’t name the person who requested this one 😉 Yep… Have a great weekend everyone 😀...

I’ve also written an article for Bleeding Cool entitled, “Why I gave up games journalism to Kickstart a comic,” and it’s all about my recent career change, the highs and lows of making your hobby your job, as well as some insight into how this inspired the Bust concept. Have a gander and let us know what you think. Thanks again for your amazing support!...
