I had some text in the first two panels but decided it was much better just with the pantomime. A bit of my acting here. I won’t ever say anything in the comic about this, but in my back story for Leslie, she kept the long forelock of hair because this is a thing she does. She swipes away bad thoughts by swatting at her hair like this. Another case here as well like i mentioned in the last two about lettering, where in print the word balloons will be about a 3rd smaller and will fit nicely in the one last panel the way they should.

Several short stories appear in both issues, along with sketches, pin ups, poems and old Comic Jam pages.
Sroties about facing mortality in the form of a aged downstairs neighbour.
Dreaming you lost you’re imagination and finding it again on a planet of bird aliens with fingers for plumage.

Or finding yourself falling between the cracks of society and becoming homeless.
And that’s all just in RevolveЯ One!
Sequential tectonic shift:
RevolveЯ One by salgood sam
“Salgood’s drifting vision has an incredible sense of space and freedom. Your eye moves across the page continuously, an angel floating through worlds. Usually the dynamic movement of the images themselves direct your vision, like little signposts that bounce you around the worlds Sam has created. The narratives sometimes unmoor themselves from everyday reality, moving into poetic or existentialist territory, but never loses its grounding in very concrete images. RevolveЯ plays with how we perceive things, and where we anchor ourselves. This is reflected in the way panels bleed into other panels, if there are panels at all. It suggests that sometimes the dream world or the worlds we create in our narratives appear realer than our actual lives, that the membrane between the world we live and the worlds we see ourselves living in is very thin.”
First impressions by - Sherwin Tjia
RevolveЯ is my personal anthology project. Like Acme Novelty Library, 8 Ball, that sort of thing. A place to put whatever I’m working on at the moment. I’ve relaunched it last fall in a new full colour format, and a second small digest issue was published this past winter. You can get both now for cheep, with credit card or paypal. The quality of printing is first rate, the work nominated for several awards.
Retailers, Hi! This is an ideal opportunity for shops to try stocking the new full colour edition of RevolveЯ with an initial order of 5 or 10 issues? The 25% off leaves you a nice margin even with shipping to add your mark up. I left off the price from the covers as well so you can set one that works best for you. Suggested is $20 for book one, and $8 to $10 for book two. Fair I think when you consider shipping to the regular POD price.
You can order bulks of 20 or more copies any time with that discount but right now till the 13th the sale will let to test them out in your shop in smaller numbers, show to your more discerning customers and try out their legs as strong sellers. It always manage to sell well at conventions and festivals so I’m confident RevolveЯ will sell for your shop. And if you do order some let me know, i’ll be posting a listing of places carrying it!
PS, there’s a deal on my prints, free shipping till Sunday too! One day to go on that!
