I have self-published my own comics for nearly Twenty years. A good portion of these are what is generally termed autobio, short for autobiography, Ten years in the making I have produced eight comics centred around my personal experiences. I had the gauge idea of the BIG BOOK, collecting these comics and working towards 600 pages. This was with one eye on Eddie Campbell – The years have pants and building a legacy work. But drift set in and I was lost as to what direction to lead the project.
Strip for me steps up
It was Douglas Noble that suggested that I should collect them under a working title and he would publish them on Strip For Me/ComiXology. He suggested Life’s a party. I was quite resistant to this title at first. It’s a play on my surname and I’ve heard most versions including ASSPARTY ! After a while I came round to accepting the title as a thing.
Why do you need to know this.
Basically all my back issues are out of print, and I have no intention of reprinting any of them. New comics will be published and if I ever get to the end of this project I will try to get a complete book published. But until then, digital is the way to read the back issues.
So where can I buy these ?
Life’s a party/Strip for me/ComiXology is the place to go for back issues.
