A new Bust custom sketch + Comic shipping update

Hi Bust fans and Kickstarter backers! I hope you’ve all been having a stellar weekend indeed. We have a very small update for you today, ahead of a much bigger one next week (it’s a biggie, I promise!), and it concerns one lovely and quite deranged piece of custom backer art devised by our backer Scott Munro. Chris has knocked it out of the park with the art on this one as usual, see for yourself: Glorious. Also, we will receive our first print run next week and start shipping issue #1 to everyone ahead of my first convention appearance at Glasgow ComicCon (July 4-5), where I’ll be selling and signing copies for new readers. But more on that later. Thanks for your support as always, and we’ll have more for you shortly....

[VIDEO] Bust: Issue #1 print preview + new sketch

Good morning Bust fans and Kickstarter backers, Dave here with another pre-launch update. I just received the print test for Bust: Issue #1, just before we sign off on the 300 copies we’ve ordered in our first run. I thought I’d do a quick video to show off the issue, and some of the Kickstarter-exclusive extras in the issue for our backers and early adopters. There’s also some chat around the progress of issue #2, and what comes next for the series. Here’s the clip. Check it out if you backed the comic: Lastly, we’ve got a new backer sketch for our backer Jordan Capasso, which is a moose sized goose, riding a goose sized moose, leading a charge again the Hobbit’s Five Armies. All I can say Jordan is “WTF?” We love it. Thanks for your request, and cheers to Chris for making it awesome: That’s all for now folks. I’m looking forward to selling the issue at Glasgow ComicCon July. Be sure to seek me out if you’re there!...

Our first review!!

Happy hump day to all our readers and Kickstarter backers alike! In case you missed our previous Kickstarter update, we have now submitted Bust: Issue #1 for printing and we’e looking to launch first week of July. Which means we have a full print PDF of the comic, which also means we can send it to critics for review, and Big Glasgow Comic Page is the first outlet to review our issue – and man is it positive 😀 There’s no spoilers in the review – which you can read in full here – but here’s a snippet: “For just over 30 pages it fits so much in, without feeling too rushed. It is heart felt, brutal and quite dystopian. Speculative and full of twisted poetry (the visual and metaphorical kind, not the rhyming kind!) This is a tale of redemption, rebellion, karma and purpose. But most of all, metamorphosis.” Needless to say, both Chris and I are blown away by the review. It’s beyond anything we could have hoped going into this series, and again, we have you guys to thank for this More soon!...

I’ll be recording a thank you video on Saturday to tell you all this in person and to give you an update on the scripts for issues 2 and 3 (coming along nicely!) plus more.
