Suburban Glamour – an update

Filed under: Uncategorized

Suburban Glamour #1 won’t be out this week. There’s a very good – or very bad – reason for that.

Unfortunately there was a printing error in the issue, that neither I nor Image felt was acceptable for release. We had two choices – put a substandard book out on time, or reprint and release the book as it was intended, to the standards we want. I hope you’ll all agree that was the right choice; I certainly think it was.

To everyone waiting on the book, please accept my apologies for the delay. It’s not what any of us here wanted, but I think you’ll find the book worth the wait!

As soon as I have the amended release date, I will let you all know.

Matt Sheret does a phone interview with a just-woken-up-pre-caffeine me for Sound Generator. Try to make sense of my rambles here.

Also I’m told SG #1 comes out next week! Excitement!

It’s a story of one girl, one boy, one band and two worlds. The world we know, and the world kids dream about.

In Jamie McKelvie’s Suburban Glamour, two British seventeen year-olds, Astrid and Dave, find out their seemingly dead-end lives has a back door – a secret door, into something fantastical. Astrid’s childhood imaginary friends, long since relegated to the past tense, come to pay a visit and to warn her. Something is coming.

This four issue miniseries is written and illustrated by Jamie McKelvie, who is perhaps best known for his work on the “music is magic” series Phonogram with writer Kieron Gillen. For his first solo outing he’s going in full color, thanks to the help of award-winning colorist Guy Major.

Chris Arrant asks me some questions, and I do my best to answer them.

Also, I have updated my shop with the new prints available.

OK, I set up an Imagekind account to make prints of the Suburban Glamour covers available. Head over to http://jamiemckelvie.imagekind.com/subglam to view them. You can choose the size you want (from small to superbig!), and even have it framed when you buy it! Sounds pretty good to me.

To remind you, the covers look like this:

Order early, order often.
