As some of you may know I created a comic last year called Emerald City Blues. Emerald City Blues is my post modern take on The Wizard of Oz. ECB started as a one off story for the 24 hour comic day marathon. In that first 24 hours I had drawn 17 pages and inked 11 of them. After looking at the amount of work I had done I decided I should do something with it and started posting it on the web as a sort of web comic. I ended up getting a really good response to the story and eventually I published the entire first chapter in printed form.
I didn't go through comic stores I sold directly to the readers that had been enjoying the work so far. I was humbled by the amount of support I received on the project. I sold out of issue one and I am now printing issue 2. So look below and enjoy reading my hype text and if you know anybody that would enjoy reading a new comic or they are a long time Wizard of Oz fan than please point them in the direction of my comic.
