I’ve got a post up at SF Signal, about the experience of switching (temporarily! – I do still have a new novel coming out this October, after all!) from prose to comics writing: What Happens When A Novelist Tries To Write A Comic?. Do go check it out if you’re interested.
Enough about what I think about things, though. It occurred to me I’ve got a chance here to do something I’ve not done in a looong time, so for nostalgic reasons as much as anything, here comes … A Review Round-Up!
What some folks have made of Rogue Trooper #1:
‘Rogue Trooper is off to a killer start and I can’t wait for more.’ IGN
‘This comic nails the atmosphere of the world and the voice of the title character.’ Adventures in Poor Taste
‘Checks all the first issue boxes while still giving you a great story.’ Comic Book Therapy
‘We have a winner here.’ Comic Bastards
‘This is an impressive opening issue for the series.’ Unleash the Fanboy
All of which is very nice. If you haven’t already, there’s still time to pick up the first issue at your local comic shop ( if you have one), or at comixology if you don’t (where I’ve just noticed, in the course of finding that link, that it appears to be piling up 5 star reviews, which is also very nice).
Thanks to anyone and everyone who’s said nice things about this first issue, wherever they’ve said them.
Now I must go and do some preparation for my first trip to a convention in a while: Me and the Rogue Trooper artist, Alberto Ponticelli, will be at Newcastle Film and Comic Con tomorrow, Saturday 8th March, where I believe we may both be doing such things as signing stuff and talking about stuff. If by any chance you’re there, do say hello. Neither me nor Alberto will bite. Probably.
