ROO NEWS – JULY 2012

Hi folks!

Here’s the latest Roo News:

KILLEROO: GANGWAR SKETCH COVER BY TRISTAN JONESKILLEROO: GANGWAR
Another review has popped up:

There’s also a few more Sketch Covers that have come through, in particular a couple from Tristan Jones and Paul Abstruse.

WHERE TO BUY KILLEROO: GANGWAR
Pleased to report that we have a new retailer on board the ‘roo train, being NOT JUST COMICS in Nowra! Pop in there and say hello to Dan when you’re in that neck of the woods.

If you can’t find it on the shelves of your local store, you can still buy GANGWAR online.

BEGINNINGS ANTHOLOGY
This book is now completely sold out, so if you can’t find it on a retailer’s shelf I’m afraid you’ve missed out on the first chapter of Killeroo’s ORIGIN in full colour! Well done to the Canberra-based Beginnings crew for such a fantastic debut effort!

HOME-MADE
This book is not far away now, I believe it’s currently in transit from the printer in America, so expect to see it popping up all over the place very soon!
You can pre-order a copy, and check out some of Gee’s pages.

KILLEROO: THE CAVE
The only thing that’s been holding back the Killeroo story from being printed in VELOCITY is the tardiness of it’s artist, and unfortunately I can’t blame anyone else but myself! But there’s been some serious progress of late, with a lot of pencilling and the beginning of inking on several pages, which you can check out here.

RECENT KILLEROO COMMISSIONS
Have just received a fantastic new Killeroo commission from Pakistan artist Saad Irfan, check it out!

Lastly, the KILLEROO STATUE is just getting its finishing touches, and will be completed this weekend! Shall be popping over to meet the sculptor Julian Briones, can’t wait to see it in person! And you’ll be able to check him out as well, as ALL STAR COMICS in Melbourne have generously offered some space in one of their display cabinets for a few weeks.

And that’s about it for now – Hooroo!
