Owen Michael Johnson & John Pearson released their small press sensation into the wild back in 2015 with a launch/exhibition and that journey comes to an end with the release of the double-sized Finale this Saturday……..but thankfully that’s not an April Fools.
Beast Wagon has been one of THE stand out titles to come from the UK indie/small press scene in recent years and after interviewing the creative team ahead of the release of the first issue back in 2015, it seemed fitting that I should catch up with them again as we edge closer to its conclusion.
The final issue of the phenomenal Beast Wagon will see the light of day on it’s release on the 1st April and while I hope it’s all a joke that it has to end I can’t wait to see what the fifth issue brings us.
Beast Wagon hit the Indie comic scene with the type of successful Kickstarter many could only dream of and that paved the way for the first two issues to reach print this year.
Having already been impressed with Act One of Owen Michael Johnson’s Reel Love I was pretty hyped to hear that a second act was being pushed for release at last weekends Glasgow Comic Con…..and although I’d already seen a digital copy of the book it’s the hardcopy that I was waiting to get my hands on. I can’t help it….I’m old school!
After a phenomenal Kickstarter campaign, an impressive Exhibition, a successful launch & an interview with me 😀 ………it’s fair to say that momentum is definitely with Beast Wagon – so when my Kickstarter reward copy of chapter one came through the door…..it was a dead cert for me to review
