It has been a pretty interesting few months behind the scenes here at Hard Graft towers since our last update which was waaay back in April. Thats almost five months? Incredible.
Anywayyou’re probably wondering why there has been such a massive gap between comics and I’m here to explain the relevant reasons why this is so. But first a few announcements.
Firstly Hard Graft issue one is now on Graphic.ly! Check it out and buy one if you like Hard Graft on your mobile! Better still why not spread the word and let all your mates know!
Secondly unless something massive changes issue three will end early. I have my reasons why it has come to this but I don’t feel that the time is right to divulge them now. I know that many creators usually keep silent when there is a sudden change of artist but I feel that I owe it to my hardy band of fans that I at least let them know whats going to happen.
Thirdly I have tapped Jules to produce all content from the end of issue three onwards. I want quality and I also want reliability and Jules brings these to the table in cart loads in my opinion. She has her own distinct art style which is evolving all the time as she does more work and if you want to see what she has done recently then I urge you with every fibre of my being to check out Valkyrie Squadron which is an uncompromising sci-fi romp. If you’re not convinced after reading that then frankly you’ll never be I’m afraid.
This brings me onto my fourth and final announcement that we plan to cull issue 3 at 16 pages and then progress the story into issues 4 and 5 which I’ve already scripted. I’m already working on an issue 6.
If you have any comments, complaints, questions or all of the above then please comment below and I’ll be in touch to answer those.
Yes, well, we all saw that coming.
Well manipulating traffic lights, paying off the local police and trapping him between a rock and a hard place are all part of the job for these two although their methods do diverge slightly depending on their backgrounds. As for our Bratva man his day has gone from bad to worse. I hope his car is still there when/if he gets back.
Here in the UK, snow has given way to grim reality: rain. Things are pretty damp at the moment with all those lucky, lucky guys up north in Scotland getting all the snow and the 2,000m avalanches that come with it. Apparently Glencoe has more snow than any other resort in the world right now! All great fun. I could imagine people in Kent skiing on the South Downs back when it was really snowbound a couple of months ago.
Fan map update! Yet more people flood onto the map like they’re trying to get the last ‘chopper out of Saigon! So hello to Omegus in Iowa USA, HP & Jeff in Berlin Germany and Luke in the capital of billiards: Sheffield.
Stumbling through your front door like the boyfriend who spent way too much time down the pub, Pond to Pond #8 is here!
