Comic page 17 teaser! (minus words, obvs)

Hello backers, we hope you’ve had a great week! Because we encountered tech issues and lost page 17 of Bust when it was almost finished, we’ve decided to reveal it without the text so you can see more of it than our usual bite-sized teasers. That’s Chris O’Toole’s brother Jeff being a sore loser at cards btw 😀 The full version will drop soon, and page 18 will not be far behind! Stay...

Technology meltdown :'(

                      Hi backers, we hope you’ve been having an ace start to the year so far. So, Chris was working on page 17 of Bust when his machine crapped out and he lost most of it. I feel really gutted for him as that is always a bloody nightmare, but this does mean the page will be a little delayed. Please send Chris lots of mind-hugs and thought-fist bumps to make his day Meanwhile, however I’m still collating contacts for comic shops so we can distribute print copies of Bust to shops across the UK. I should have some more Bust 2 updates to shave soon, I just have to be careful not to spoil it for you all. Thanks again for your support guys, and speak soon....

Looking back, it’s amazing to see how much of pop culture and indeed apocalyptic culture has been influenced by Miller’s work. I was so enamoured with The Road Warrior that I started writing more of Bust issue #2: Wasteland Ronin, and I actually double-taked at how unknowingly similar some elements of the series is to those movies. The evil characters are quite barbaric, almost tribal in nature, and they dress really weird too. They also have rusted vehicles that are barely held together by duct tape and crude welding. In many ways issue 2 is about the new makeshift America that emerges from the ashes of issue 1’s terrible plague. The mutated freaks you’ve seen Jack fighting so far have quickly died out and aren’t seen again, but their destruction caused society to collapse. I’m keen to stress again that this isn’t zombie fiction, and it’s more that I used the plague as a trigger for the desolate world we...
