Here's a little something for your to peruse over the holidays. If you've got a DriveThru Comics account, or are willing to get one, you can now get "The Journals of Simon Pariah" #1A free.
Why #1A? Well, because this is not a full issue; rather it's a wordless 8 page story I created, partly as an exercise in wordless comics, and partly to develop the idea of "apocryphal" Simon Pariah stories. Apocryphal stories, in this case, being short pieces that are incidental tales featuring the character that may or may not be part of the "canon" that will be the character's history, and that give me the context to set stories out of continuity or (I hope) to eventually invite other creators to tell their own tales of the character.
Issue #1A contains the story "A Pair of Boots" which originally ran as a webcomic on the Simon Pariah Comic Genesis site. It's dedicated to Steve Ditko, who inspired the story with his treatment of philosophical elements in works like "Mr. A" and his simplistic yet highly effective art style.
Head over to DriveThru Comics right now and grab a copy. Then be sure to let me know what you think, either in a review, or in the comments. Either way, you can't beat the price. Enjoy!
