Alex Ronald gives us Tharg’s recipe for creative success. Has Mek-Quake just polished off Pye-01?
One of my top three fave graphic novels of all time, White Trash is finally getting a reprint worthy of its content. I say this as my original got stolen and the replacement reprint I bought later was decidedly muddy looking.
New hardback version comes out today according to the press release I’m copying below, ” Wednesday April 29, the greatest buddy road comic EVER comes roaring into comic stores “, but after a quick look, Amazon seems to think it’s not despatching my copy till June 24th! I may have to send a snotty old lady style complaint letter. Is the digital getting an earlier release or are they just shipping hard copies to comic stores before other outlets? Cool idea if that is the case.
Anyway, HIGHLY recommended and if there is a delay between formats I’d hold out for the hardback. Here’s some authorised interior art along with the blurb I got sent. – Richard Mc
