"Time's Rambler" - The Graphic Novel

"TIME'S RAMBLER" - THE GRAPHIC NOVEL
Besides painting miniatures and playing wargames, I've also spent the past forty years producing cartoon scripts involving all manner of superheroes, time travellers, horrific monsters and extra-terrestrials. These initially started as hand-drawn characters scribbled onto blank paper with a black pen, and then later evolved into computer-printed panelled pages, word bubbles and even a splash of colour. Now however, everything is digitally drawn, compiled and lettered using a computer graphics package, and can be sent to a professional printing company for publication.

As a result I'm absolutely delighted to announce that I've received some more stock of my graphic novel, "Time's Rambler", and opened the "Mooretoons Publishing" Webstore for those interested in purchasing a copy of my book. Please do come and pay me a visit, even if you're not planning on buying my book, as I'd like people to test it out and let me know their thoughts - good and bad.

What's The Book About..?
THE CAST OF CHARACTERS AND THEIR FIRST FOUR ADVENTURES
In the far reaches of outer space, the planet Beorge wages its eternal struggle against a mysterious, extra-terrestrial super-power known only as "The Enemy" to ensure the universe maintains its smooth flow time."

This intergalactic confrontation is so large that it takes place across a thousand worlds, with one such battlefield being the Earth. There, a single human being, empowered by the Beorge to act as their agent, desperately attempts to fend off the deadly machinations of the enemy's own chaotic operative in a never-ending game of cat and mouse across multiple time zones...

What's The Book Consist Of And Where Can I Buy It..?
THE OPENING PAGES TO "THE HILVERSUM HEIST" AND "THE BEES OF MARS"
This first volume of "Time's Rambler" contains four adventures based upon the earliest exploits of the Beorge's latest Earth Time Agent; A man who suddenly appears within a large jeweller's vault in the Netherlands in the year 2002 A.D. without any explanation, and after a brief brawl with a local crime lord, whisks the jewellery store's owner off into a further series of time-travelling escapades.

The book is a full-colour, 36 page A4 (210mm x 297mm) saddle stitched publication, sporting a 300gsm Silk finish cover, and 200gsm Silk finish interior pages. It'll be mailed First Class (Recorded), and be package in a padded bubble envelope.

  1. Having had the pleasure to get a copy and read this graphic novel I can say it is a lot of fun. Congratulations on getting this put together, I don't think I could have done it! I was impressed with the production values too as the paper is great quality and the colours and text really pop. I wish you all the best in this endeavour.

    1. Thanks very much indeed, Undercoat. It has certainly been a huge learning curve, both working with the printers to get the book put together, as well as setting up a webstore etc. Hopefully Vol 2 will be out next month and the online shelf won't look quite so bare. :-)
