Rock In Purgatory is on Kickstarter

Get over to Kickstarter right now and back the Rock In Purgatory comic!

Running until Saturday 4 November the campaign has a stack of awesome rewards available as well as a lush print edition of the comic book. 

Since the strip is all about the deaths of fictional rock stars all the bonus rewards are heavy metal themed. You can get your hands on plectrums, back stage passes and gig tickets. Plus the are loads of art prints available and original pages of art from the book. If you are feeling really self indulgent you can even back to top tier and get everything plus a custom commission of your own. 

You can read free previews of Rock In Purgatory now.

So go to my Kickstarter page and get backing!

NEW Rock In Purgatory: Yesterday’s Screws

ys blog

It’s that time again! The NEW Rock In Purgatory comic strip is out now in the latest edition of Popcorn Horror magazine. Download it now!

Follow the unpleasant tale of Aaron Etheridge, front man of rockers Yesterday’s Screws and notorious for taking advantage of groupies. We’ve all met guys like this; fancies himself more than he fancies the girls he’s sleeping with, and thinks he’s bullet proof because of his looks and fame. Well, bullets are the least of Aaron’s worries, as he discovers that chainsaws can be used for much more than chopping down trees…

Yesterday’s Screws were named by you the people! My regular band name competition had a great response as always and my Twitter followers voted for Vada Callisto’s band name suggestion – thanks Vada, and thanks to everyone who voted.

You can pay what you want when you download your copy of Popcorn Horror. Please consider making a contribution to help keep the magazine alive. You can also support me so I can continue producing free online comics.

In the June edition of Rock In Purgatory, you will meet the thrash-tastic ASSISTED TWISTER!

These guys will rock til they drop in the next comic strip. An insane guitar solo brings down the house with a bloodbath of a crescendo. So, put your metal horns in the air and brace yourself for a gory show.

Just like Thunder Lynx, Assisted Twister was the winning suggestion from my Twitter followers. The awesome Shawn Langley submitted the name and when the people spoke, they said ‘We want ASSISTED TWISTER!”.

The release date will be announced soon, but in the meantime you can read all the other Rock In Purgatory comics for free.
