Accent UK's WESTERN available NOW!

The 2009 Accent UK anthology WESTERN is available to order direct from their website NOW!

For those of you who don’t know, Accent UK is an independent comic publisher based in Cheshire, in the United Kingdom. This is the second AUK anthology I've had the good fortune to appear in, the first being last years ROBOTS (still available to buy!).

For WESTERN, I hooked up with Bryan Coyle, my collaborator from ROBOTS and the FutureQuake strip Mindfields, and brought along Billy Armstrong to lend a helping hand with some of the character designs for a piece we had to call A Fistful Of Steam Valves, a Steam Punk Spaghetti Western.

To whet your appetite, I'll be posting some of Billy's original character designs on this here blog, and, courtesty of AUK, here's a sneak preview of the first page of the strip (click for a larger view)...

I'll be posting some more of the original character sketches tomorrow.

The book is 192 pages long and costs £7.99 ($11.99).

It features a plethora of new and established talent, including Kieron Gillen, John Reppion & Leah Moore, Andy Bloor, Dwight MacPherson, Kirk Manley and Steve Bissette. You can find a the complete list of contributors at the Accent UK website. Go and buy a copy or two, and help the independent comic scene!
