WESTERN Preview Part 2: "I don't think it's funny, you laughin'..."

With Accent UK's 2009 graphic novel WESTERN now available (go and buy a copy at their website), I've decided to indulge in some more shameless self-promotion for the the strip A Fistful Of Steam Valves (by me and Bryan Coyle) which features in the very pages of that book.

One of the key features the strip would need was the ridiculously over the top technology that you'd expect from a Steam Punk world, but, obviously, it had to be more Wild West, rather than Victoriana, so it fell to Billy Armstrong to see what he could come up with...

WESTERN is available at Accent UK's own website now.

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 UK independent scene!

And remember, Accent UK's previous anthology, ROBOTS, is also still available (Previews order code: MAR083379), which features a piece called Loose Ends from me and Bryan Coyle!
