It's Long Gone Don publication day! HOORAY! HOORAY!
Launching a new comic book is a lot like releasing an animal that's been bred in captivity, back into the wild. As a creator you've grown your comic, nurtured the story, encouraged the characters' early steps, watched it grow, and change shape and size and, pretty soon, develop a life all of its own.
So it was with Malcolm Magic, Monkey Nuts, Baggage, Yore, Doogan, and now Don. Back in May 2011 Lorenzo and I started putting together the first concept work for the cast who would eventually go on to populate the strange land of Broilerdoom. Three years and three adventures serialised in the pages of the mighty Phoenix Comic later, and Lorenzo and I can safely say that our charges have found their feet.
And today you can all enjoy the debut tale of young Don and his best friend, Castanet, as it was intended to be experienced, in our first full length Long Gone Don graphic novel.
