Hello Kickstarter backers and comic fans alike! Dave here with a long overdue update. It’s been a while since we last filled everyone in – mostly because we’ve been working on the Kickstarter campaign for Bust #2: Wasteland Ronin, and fine-tuning the explosive script. More on this very soon!
But we’ve also got some exciting updates for you in the meantime
I had a great time selling Bust: Issue #1 at the Big Glasgow Comic Fair on July 18, where we managed to sell 64 copies, so thank you to everyone who picked up a copy! I shared table with Dave Lumsden behind the brilliant Boat: Issue #1. (That’s him on the left of this image)
His concept started life as an award-winning movie before being adapted into a dark comic that shares a lot in common with Bust. It’s a story like The Road, that sees a man and his son trying to survive a flooded, apocalyptic Scotland. I highly recommend checking it out here, even for it’s amazing twist alone!
But that’s not all. The owner of Paisley-based indie shop Comicrazy swung by our table and bought a batch of Bust: Issue #1 for his store, so you can now pop in and buy a copy. Show them some love and check out their cool stock here.
Wait, there’s more? We’re also now stocked in the wicked, and newly-relaunched Deadhead Comics in Edinburgh and the nearby branch of Forbidden Planet – also in Edinburgh. You can grab a signed copy of Bust: Issue #1 from Deadhead at just £2.99 – a bargain we’re sure you’ll agree!
Needless to say it’s been a crazy last two months thanks to the print launch of Bust, but this is only just the beginning. We’ve got so much more great stuff to share with you that we can’t reveal yet, but you’ll know more soon!
Thanks again for your incredible support guys!
