Final cover to my new comic HEAD LOPPER.
Now available for PRE-ORDER here: http://andrewmaclean.storenvy.com
When I first started creating comics I wrote the stories I was drawing. Those pages got me work with other writers, and that work has been my source of income for the last couple years. As immensely grateful as I am to those writers, there has been a constant itch to get back to my writing. Though I have many ideas piling up in the head-closet, HEAD LOPPER is the first piece of my writing that is being “published.” When I decided to sit down and pump out HEAD LOPPER: Part One I didn’t have a long term goal of pitching or publishers and any of that business stuff. I just wanted to create something that was entirely mine, something that was REAL. I wanted it so bad, and still do. I just wrote it and paced it with out regard for length or industry standards or any of that bullshit.
That said, I hope you find HEAD LOPPER to be what it was intended to be: a stand-alone piece of art, cover to cover. Every square milimeter was fine tuned by me and I’m proud to have something to call my own in 2013.
So on the business front, what will become of HEAD LOPPER? Will a publisher pick it up? Will I go broke paying for printing? I have no idea. But I think I succeeded in what I set out to do… To not create a “comic” but tell a story through pictures and words.
… what the fuck am I talking about. It’s a comic.
Hope you dig, -AM
