Episode 99b

Hi all! No, there’s still no more Bret Braddock comics, though I’ve dearly wanted to do a couple more after talking with certain people recently (idiots).

One nice commenter on the Braddock show trailer on YouTube, Sara B, asked if she could have the theme music in it as a ringtone. Of course she can! And so can you. Enjoy Eddie A. Falcon’s velvet throat, or (as I’m doing) annoy people near your ringing phone with a version unadulterated by tacky vocals.

Reminder: you can get copies of The Bret Braddock Adventures book 1 and 2 from the good people at All Star Comics and also here, online. Thankfully, there’s not many left!

Love,
David

No, there’s no more Bret Braddock comics, but here’s some notes I took at a business meeting.

Bret Braddock’s Final Meeting

Ladies and gentlemen:

After 3 years and 100+ pages, my comic strip “Showman? The Bret Braddock Adventures” is coming to a (horrible) end. You are invited to witness this end.

Attendees at BRET BRADDOCK’S FINAL MEETING (July 14, from 6:15pm) will become part of a half-arsed theatrical spectacular which will BAMBOOZLE and BEMUSE. Those who experienced BRET BRADDOCK’S AWKWARD WORKPLACE FUNCTION at 2010’s Melbourne Fringe Festival will have some idea of what to expect.

I will not lie: you will be encouraged to buy the few remaining copies of Showman? books 1 & 2.

But you will also be transported to an incredible world of fantasy, in which it JUST MIGHT BE POSSIBLE to tell your stupid boss what a f&c%wit he is!

There will be recriminations!

There will be a PowerPoint presentation.

There will be Arnott’s Classic Assortment.

Bret Braddock’s Final Meeting
(aka: the launch of “Showman?” book 2)

will take place at

Squishface Comics Studio
309 Victoria St, Brunswick

on Saturday, July 14 at 6:15pm.

Party to follow.

How to get there:

TRAIN: Upfield line to Brunswick Station. TRAM No. 19, stop 23. BUS: 508/805.

The Bret Braddock Adventures vol. 2 will probably look like this.

This is what Volume 2 of The Bret Braddock Adventures will probably look like.

Preorders will be possible very shortly. I’ll let you know when. Repeatedly.

Not a break: it’s heads down time.

I forgot to mention on here that I’m taking time out from posting The Bret Braddock Adventures weekly. The last 20 or so episodes will probably return in May.

The reason is that I’m on board the Caravan of Comics; a huge tour which will see about fifteen Aussie cartoonists and entourage travel around the north-eastern USA and Toronto.

I gotta get the Bret Braddock vol. 2 book finished before we leave, and the only way that’ll happen is if I power through the writing of all the remaining strips, then draw them. Normally I write and draw each strip each week, which is slower going.

So, again, thanks for reading the strip and look for the rest, online and in booky form, in a couple months! I might even do a preorder system via one of those crowdfunder sites if I get a spare minute to set it up.

In the meantime, you do know you can buy a paper or digital version of volume one, right? Aside from the money I get from this (which is minimal), I really appreciate that you bothered! As a consumer of modern media, I recognise that it’s the ones who take a moment to buy a comic or send an e-mail who actually give a fuck. And that it’s harder and harder to do that these days! So thanks tons.

Cheers,

David

Hi to all those cartoonists and comics readers I met at MoCCA Fest in NYC! Special thanks to those who picked up a copy of the Bret Braddock book, or some Swedish Fish, from our table.

Will start putting new Bret Braddock episodes up in June. Here’s what forty episodes’ worth of plotting looks like:

When books are in stores, or for sale online, I’ll let you know.

Bret Braddock Seeks Written Approval

We at Docklands Entertainment are putting together a collected edition of the Bret Braddock comic strips to date. The cover will look something like this.

We have found there’s some empty space on the back cover, and are therefore now soliciting for promotional blurbs from YOU.

Usually these are written by Stephen King and the like, but we’ll take a positive appraisal from anybody, famous or not.

We have room for about two short blurbs, so please send one you’ve written (or one you’ve somehow gotten Stephen King to write) to us at Docklands, via either Twitter to @nakedfella, e-mail or the comment section of this post.

If you’re unfamiliar with the strip, get reading. You may enjoy it.

Authors (or enablers) of blurbs we use will receive a copy of the collected edition (print/ebook) and a MYSTERY PRIZE (which will become less mysterious when I ask for your t-shirt size).
