Thick Jam is an online fiction magazine to which I've been submitting stories for a while now, but with little success. They have incredibly high standards (which is a good thing) and only publish one piece per week.
So guess what? Success!
Although the magazine's editor did admit he doesn't normally publish stories this short, he did say that he liked it enough to make an exception in this case. There's a confidence boost for my work!
The story itself is called 'The Meeting' and can be found here:-
As revealed last month (here) - my artist on an upcoming story for 100% Biodegradable is the very talented Hardy Lynch. A total newcomer to the world of small press comics (as opposed to myself who's just a newcomer!) this was always going to be both a really good learning experience as well as a fun project.
When he sent me some character studies he'd done in preparation for starting the artwork, I was really, really impressed. Hardy has an almost 'cartoony' style, very reminiscent of anime or manga and one which will work brilliantly with this particular story.
