I Have the Persia Blues – my Husband is a Brigand!

Last week the digital debut of the graphic novel ‘Persia Blues’ happened, one of the newest releases of my American publisher NBM. I had the pleasure of backing creators Dara Naraghi and Brent Bowman through Kickstarter, which bought me the thrilling perk of being depicted as a character in the story! To surprise my husband, I asked him to be drawn in, and last week we saw the result – Yiri’s wonderfully pencilled incarnation as Brigand #1!

Yiri takes the stage for three action-packed pages, after which he is unceremoniously uhm, well, annihilated basically.

To counter his gruesome graphic demise, I drew up this alternative ending:

If you want to read the whole of his performance, you can download the first issue for just 99 cents on Comixology by clicking here.

Or you can wait until June, when the entire graphic novel will be on sale in comic stores and beyond!
