Schedules out of the window, budgets under strain and the spectre of ever more delays loom. Thats the general outlook for May and June. Doom and gloom.
Basically things aren’t really going all that well on the Hard Graft front. Issue 3 faces ever more delays and financial squeezes mean that I’m delaying the current SS for a few weeks. If you require your daily dose of Jules Rivera’s striking and dramatic art then I suggest you go raid her excellent new comic Valkrye Squadron!
It isn’t all doom and gloom though. My rugby team, Saracens, won a nail biting thriller in the Aviva Premiership final beating Leicester Tigers to become champions. I wore my fez with pride that day!
Also while Issue 3 is delayed until domesday I can confirm that I have a substantial two month buffer building up. As soon as the current side story is complete we’ll switch back to issue 3 for more fun and games.
And if you want to help raise some money for more comics and want to introduce new readers at the same time, why not let them know Hard Graft issue one is coming to Graphic.ly for the princely sum of 99 cents! It’ll include some nice extras including the original script as typed by my godly hands! Issue 2 and the side stories will also be rolled out in due course with new unseen artwork. Graphic.ly is available on iOS, Android and PC. I’ve actually had to form a kind of mini-publisher called CLAPOW! which I might look into taking further as I release more stuff under it
And thats the latest thats been happening at Hard Graft towers. Please be patient and bear with us as we try and struggle to get back on schedule!
