AMAZING JOY BUZZARDS CREATED BY DAN HIPP AND MYSELF.
Here’s a preview of the first ten pages of the Amazing Joy Buzzards Lost Book.
One of the things that was fun about the Amazing Joy Buzzards is that we would always reference earlier fictitious Amazing Joy Buzzards adventures in editor’s notes.
I thought that it would be fun to do a book of one of the “Lost” Amazing Joy Buzzards adventures titled “The Tunisian Lava Squirrel” as an ‘original graphic novel’ waaaaaaaaaaaaay back in 2007 and enlisted the help of artist CRISTIAN GONZALEZ.
The story features the characters from a 3 page short by Dan Hipp and myself titled “The Amazing Joy Buzzards” and the Fearless Vampire Hunters and it’s got vampires waaay before twilight was popular.
From 2007 to the present we had been working on the book on and off and fitting it in around our schedule.
This year we’re going to wrap it up and do it serialized in digital on Kickstarter with readers able to pick up an issue for $1 or more, to pay for lettering and coloring costs for each chapter.
The book is retro and truly is a lost tale.
