In case you were wondering who the inspiration was for (Neon Noir's main character) Bowie's look.
I had no idea going into the book if themichaelkennedy could somehow pull off us having a gender-neutral lead. When Mike sent me the top image from (if I remember correctly) an old french film magazine to see if it was anything like what I had in mind for Bowie, I could’ve swam the few thousand miles separating us just to hug the shit out of him.
That man can read my fuckin’ mind.
(As always, you can check out Neon Noir for free, RIGHT HERE.)
haha you kept the picture! yeah it was Natassjia Kinski (right spelling??) .Yeah its a pretty influential image for me in general, Neon Noir presented a useful application for it.
"I guess I got to the point where it’s all me, and only I am to blame, and that feels really great."
Are you all paying attention to FKA Twigs?
Don’t usually post hauls but I was super impressed by what i got for my money. Picked all this up during a rare visit to nostalgia and comics Its technically my local but I’m a poor student.
Modesty Blaise: Bad Suki
A collection of stories from the Modesty Blaise comic strip which is very much a national treasure in comic art IMO, anyways Lots of artist featured but Jim Holdaway pretty much bossed everyone in the art game here until his death , so a volume of his work is a steal at a fiver.

ALIAS: The Underneath
Classic Bendis with Michael Gaydos who I’ve recently been converted to by way of his work on ZERO. Looks good during a flick through so I have high hopes.

£3, Hernandez brothers, Not much else needs saying other than I might go back for the other volumes.

Time To Make The Comics: Tip #12
To save myself a good 36 tweets, I’ll just talk about this on tumblr :) Been meaning to write this post for a while anyway.
I use a pretty weird semi-full script, screenplay-esque format written in Final Draft 8. (Unless you really love fullscreen, maybe don’t bother with Final Draft 9.)
tumblr reblog cuts out the juicy stuff so clickety click people.
COGREVIEW — NEON NOIR
Have you read "Neon Noir" by Johnathon O.Lyon and Michael Kennedy? It’s a gorgeous thing. And it’s only 10 pages in length!
I’ve finally got my hands on finishing the review of this little piece of art. I may state, that this short story got me thinking about…

Hey! I'm the dude that wrote that Neon Noir comic. Just wanted to thank ya for the signal boost! We made the comic for the sole purpose of being able to release it for free so as many people as possible could check it out and (maybe? Hopefully?) enjoy it. And you gals and guys have helped out a shit-ton with that goal. So keep up the always phenomenal work, and just keep being the beautiful bastards that you are.
They gave me the gift of waking up to 100 new notes on the comic and 15 new followers.
My first born will now be named “Small Press Lyon.”
