Behold! The Barbarian cometh!

Hello backers, Dave here with a post-xmas update for you all, along with another new custom backer sketch. First off – a status update. Page 17 is next to be released, and we will keep you posted on when it goes live. As a reminder, Bust issue #1 is 32 pages long, so we’re officially over the halfway mark now. There’s so much story left to cram in, plenty of twists and lots of death. When Jack said at the start that his hands would never be clean, he wasn’t kidding. Now, here is this week’s new custom backer sketch by the wonderful Chris, which was requested by MagicMumboJon. Enjoy it man! Love that beard man! There’s lots more coming folks, and needless to say 2015 is going to be huge for us. Watch this space! Thanks again for your incredible support!...

Learning from the best: Impressions from an indie comic con

                  I went to a local comic and toy mart here in Edinburgh run by the lovely folks behind Edinburgh Comic Con. It was a really cool event that featured tables filled with comics, graphic novels, local issues, artists for hire, collectibles and t-shirts. The main reason for going was to meet some local creators and to speak with them about how they go into the business – while explaining the Bust journey so far. The feedback was all very positive, and there were a few cocked eyebrows when I explained how much the Kickstarter had made. Apparently it’s a hard thing to do – which was no secret of course – but it made me stop and think again for a moment about how lucky Chris and I have been to receive all your support so far. So thank you for that once again backers! My biggest takeaways were that we shouldn’t expect to make any money from Bust – aside from the cash we make then put directly into making subsequent issues, but to be honest I don’t think I ever thought twice about that. I’m just happy to get it into people’s hands and for them to read it. That’s payment enough for me. And second, I absolutely loved how true the six degrees of separation thing was...
