So, I found out this week – my Bullet Gal comic, which was published by IF? Commix across 12 issues in 2014-15, and then repackaged as a trade by Canadians Under Belly Comics & Project-Nerd Publishing in the U.S., was recently novelized by me – and just accepted for publication by the good people at Roundfire Books in the U.K.
Stay tuned for more details.
Already, the publishers put together this W.I.P. lo-res mock-up for the front cover of the Bullet Gal novel, incorporating the artwork I did for #4 of the original comic book series, though Nick at Roundfire has tarted it up.
I’m chuffed. It captures the noir angle, with a comic feel as well, and is striking for the simplicity.
Simple, but… sweet.
The comic run received very cool critical feedback, so turning it into a novel (minus the dadaist-style art) was a challenge, but a hell of a lot of fun as well. Anyone who knows me, I think, understands how much I love the character of Mitzi, and the fact that this is a prequel to my earlier novel Who is Killing the Great Capes of Heropa? (2013) is icing on the cape… er… cake.
Meanwhile, novel #6 (Black Sails, Disco Inferno) has been available via Amazon outlets for almost a week, and seems to be doing pretty well.
The paperback can be manhandled at Amazon USA and Amazon UK and Amazon Canada, while its eBook picked up at Amazon USA, Amazon Australia, Amazon France, and Amazon Japan.
This post’s a quickie; ta for taking a read!
Will check it out!
Awesome news Andrea, a Bullet Gal novel will be fantastic! 🙂
Cheers, PB! It certainly gave me the chance to expand and consolidate on the characters/vibe from the comic; Roundfire are also really into the concept, and buzzing with ideas.
