Hello comic fans and friends of Bust alike. Dave here with another update on issues one and two of our comic series.
First of all, Chris has just sent over the completed page 22 of issue #1, and it’s another slight time skip which shows Jack winning in the arena and becoming the hardened warrior we saw at the start of the issue.
You can read the completed page 22 and all of issue #1 as we finish each page over at the Bust comic reel.
This page features cameos from three of our £50 Kickstarter backers Niki May Blane, Kev Ford and Alex Vaughn. Thanks again or your contributions guys, we couldn’t have done this without you and our other backers
Next up, Chris is staring Page 23 this week, and I’ve been writing more of the issue #2 script today, so I thought I’d give a little update on how it’s going.
I’ve mentioned in previous updates that our first issue has a running narration throughout – as we wanted to quickly establish the comic’s world and Jack’s back-story.
Bust issue #2: Wasteland Ronin on the other hand, features no narration at all, so everything you see is happening in ‘realtime’ – so to speak. It’s a far bleaker story than before, but I’ve introduced far more characters and taken time to develop them so there’s more of a connection to their situations.
As a little reveal – no spoilers so don’t worry! – I can reveal a new character called Lily, who is something of a tech-head who salvages electronics left behind from the old world and is something of a radio hacker who likes to eavesdrop on channels in the hopes of finding more tech to loot.
She’s quite an important character to the story, who is something of an intelligent foil to Jack’s old way of thinking (namely, hit the bad thing and kill it without asking questions), whereas Lily is more logical and level-headed. The two will clash often during their journey as they both come from different backgrounds.
That’s all for now. We’ll be back with page 23 and more updates when they come.
Thanks for reading!
