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.
This post’s a quickie; ta for taking a read!
