After much ado, Bludgeon #1 is finally up on The Burly Press Store for preorder! You also have 2 chances to win a copy (along with the #0 issue)… one on Facebook & one on Tumblr (click on the links for more details)! I am going to be releasing the book officially this year at Bent-Con 2012… then will be shipping it out for the winners and orders placed online shortly thereafter. For more info and a few preview pages visit the Bludgeon Gallery over at our site. I’m projecting the ship date to be on of before 12/10/12 so orders should get to you in time for Xmas! And speaking of holidays…
Burly Press Holiday Offer!
Purchase two or more items from our store and get two prints free!
Choose from 10 pinup illustration designs. They will come to you in the form of 6×9 B&W prints on bristol. So buy a copy of Bludgeon for yourself and a friend and you can keep one print and give the other as a gift! (Or keep both for yourself if you’re feeling naughty, heh heh.) Most are images from the now-sold-out BURLY #1, as well as my King Robert Baratheon (from Game of Thrones) pinup, and my Halloween pumpkin sacrifice illustration.
This offer will end 12/31/12. Orders that take advantage of this offer will also ship the same time Bludgeon #1 starts shipping.
Also, another project about to be released – Jam!
This 4-page short story, about a lonely cub finding friends, was written by Bryan Pittard (of the Flame On Show gay geek podcast) and drawn by myself. It was produced for a collaborative anthology book soon to be released entitled A Comic Book: Team Up, a book organized by the folks at A Comic Shop in Orlando, FL. It has recently been delivered to them from the printer and will soon be on sale (both in hard copy & digital format). So keep an eye on their site for more details. But for those of you going to Bent-Con this year… I have printed a limited supply of special mini comic printings of Jam, and will be selling those, along with a 5.5×8.5 print of the image you see above (which is the top panel from page 4), at my table!
In addition to the special printings of Jam I will also have both issues of Bludgeon, The last remaining Attack of the 50 ft Brute prints, limited quantities of the 6×9 burly pinup prints shown above, and free bookmarks! So come on by, say hi, and get some stuff!
Ok I think that’s all for now…
Big burly hugs,
