Just ONE WEEK left on my crowdfunding campaign! Årkade is the story of a fictional video game character called Axeman, a viking warrior with an axe for a hand, who faces the destruction of his cartridge world and must save it by gaining the attention of a retro game collector in our world. There is some pixel art and also glitch art in it. I think it's pretty swell. You can contribute here: www.gofundme.com/arkadecomic

Hey, folks. Just wanted to let you know about a new comic I'm doing...Dustship Glory.
What's that? Well, Short Version, here's how I've been pitching it at conventions:

"It's about a possibly crazy guy who builds a ship in the middle of the prairies during the Depression...AND it's based on a true story!"

Here's some sample pages I've posted here on DA:

You can get a PDF of the comic for 99 cents here: gumroad.com/l/eMwG
Or a real print version for $3.95 plus S&H here: lookstraightahead.bigcartel.co… (Maybe I'll even throw in a free sketch & button, if you like? :V )
It's a really cool & suitably weird story...if you dug Look Straight Ahead, you'll most likely dig it. :)

Long Version: Dustship Glory is a novel by Andreas Schroeder originally published in 1986 that I'm adapting into graphic novel form (with his blessing, don't worry).

This novel is based on a true story, about an incredibly strange guy from Finland named Tom Sukanen, who settled in Saskatchewan during the Depression and built a large ocean-going steamship in the middle of the prairies, hundreds of miles from any ocean.

To this day…no one really knows why. Not to sail back to Finland - a Cunard Line ticket would have gotten him there in less than a month for $88. And, this being the Depression, when everyone was struggling to keep their farms and grow something - anything - everybody thought he was a nutcase.

…or was he? He genuinely seemed to know what he was doing, and he also built a number of other inventions, including a machine that puffed wheat, a sled with a motor (before such a thing existed), and a clock powered by falling drops of water.

The genius of this story is that YOU REALLY ROOT FOR THE GUY, BECAUSE HE WORKS SO DAMN HARD ALL THE TIME…and gets no respect, because the thing he works so damn hard on is a Pointless Passion Project (and he also really lacks social skills). Yeah...I...can...sorta relate to that.

Once again, if this all sounds cool, get the PDF here: gumroad.com/l/eMwG
Or the real print version here: lookstraightahead.bigcartel.co…
(Saskatoon folks - and I know there are a couple of you here - can get the print version from all 4 comic stores in town)

I'm really excited about this comic and I hope you'll consider tossing a dollar my way...much love!! :aww:
