As part of this Saturday’s Free Comic Book Day, May 6th, comes this little gem, The Ballad of Franklin Bonisteel, from my old Life Sucks partner, Gabe Soria, drawn by me for Z2 comics. Not only is this a one-off companion piece to Gabe’s new Murder Ballad series, but it also comes with a free download link to an exclusive cover of Leadbelly’s ‘In the Pines’ by the Black Keys front man, Dan Auerbach and Robert Finley. If you like your Noir 70s and quirky, check it out. It’s bloody free!
Square Fish Books, an imprint of Macmillan, have just released a new version of Life Sucks with extra pages, chapter breaks and for only $8.99 (not sure what that is in pounds yet, but it’s a bargain!). They’ve also done a brilliant job, so if anyone out there is yet to be convinced to pick up a copy, wait no more. You can find out more here or buy it online at Amazon of course.
