Shades Volume 1 in print and on the PSP

Towards the end of last year, I finally got my act together and completed all the necessary stuff I had to do in order to get the first volume of my graphic novel Shades available in print. I'm sure you don't need to see the front cover again, so - just for a change - here's the back cover!

See all those nice comments being quoted by Stan and Doug? Those are quotes from all the wonderful online readers at Drunk Duck. How could you possibly read those and not want a copy of your own?!

Readers in the US can buy the print version of Volume 1 from Indy Planet - just $24.99 (plus P&P) for 144 full colour pages! Readers outside the US can also buy from Indy Planet, obviously, but - given the high cost of US international postage - you guys might just find it cheaper to buy direct from me - the same 144 pages for a paltry £14.99 (plus P&P)!

Of course, if you're one of those hip kids with a Sony PSP, you probably think dead-tree comics are old hat, right? You want a digital version that you can keep in your pocket and read on the move. Well, now you can have just that - Shades Volume 1 is now available at the PSN Comic Store and is available for download to your PSP. And the best part? The digital download costs only £3.19 (and no P&P!)

Now, I know what you're wondering. How can a full size comic page work on a PSP screen? It's too small, right? Nope - not at all! Digital publisher Orb Entertainment has done a bang-up job of converting every panel of every page specifically to work on the PSP, and it looks fantastic!
