Wunderbar review of 'Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat' #1 (from +Project-Nerd Publishing in the U.S.) thanks to Zeb @ +Flickering Myth:

"Melbourne is its own character in these stories: a once-charming and eccentric hipster city now turned into a hellhole that’s part Asphalt Jungle and part Midgar from Final Fantasy VII. The film-noir vibe in Bergen’s work should jump out at you pretty clearly, with a misanthropic narrator, crime-ridden city, and dark, rainy atmosphere. It’s a perfect kind of place to find a mystery." Rating: 8.5/10.

Out later this year from co-editor +Andrez Bergen.

Think a mix of horror, comedy, noir, pathos, and the vaguely surreal.

88% there, just over $500 from becoming reality, and ends in 4 days!
Big thanks to everyone who has supported, contributed to, and passed on news about the +Bullet Gal +Kickstarter  project, esp. since it's a tad leftfield.
Cheers to Under Belly Comics, IF? Commix, Galo Gutierrez & Matt Kyme.
Currently tweaking the inner pages, but otherwise all ready to run...

This noir/pulp +Kickstarter kicks from today, thanks to Under Belly Comics in Canada — along with Niagara Detroit for the amazing cover painting.
Plus check out the incredibly mad video clip.
The trade paperback is shaping up more likely to be 300+ pages, rather than the 280 mentioned here... ;)
