Run By The Gun, Issue #3

rbg3_p1_cbf_lettering_DRAFT2Suggested for mature readers: Months following the birth of Peter and Ada’s baby, Jonah is hard at work trying to build a new band with Peter. Meanwhile, Jonah’s relationship with Sarah has grown sexually, but not much otherwise. Despite feeling compelled to be in one another’s company, the two struggle painfully to get an understanding of both each other, and the new, toxic beast that their dubious, mutual attraction has created. Tempers flare and nerve-endings fray, as old behaviors and new attitudes threaten to crack Jonah’s well-crafted veneer of quiet strength. Will… the lone wolf… survive?

sftlbh-cover“Doesn’t it just break your heart… I mean, you want to make it. I mean really, really make it. But let’s see – how many people come to NYC every week, trying to be rock stars? 100 easy. They’re pouring off the buses at Port Authority. 100 a week, that’s 5,000 a year. Another 5,000 go out to LA, another 5 kick around Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago, working it there, that’s 15,000 a year? Shit, that’s conservative – it’s probably more like 50,000…

My point is… how many are going to make it? 45,000 a year never get anywhere. They never get a break, they knock up some girl, take a job driving some bakery truck – maybe 4,000 become professional musicians playing a hotel lounge near some airport. The cream, the top 1,000 get to be in a Zeppelin tribute band, make middle class money, or be 18th runner up on American Idle – but to really make a name, to be a star: maybe 10. 10 people yearly. Worldwide. 10 people out of 50,000 make it. Jonah. You think you’re going to be one of them?”

Jonah Gunn: “I don’t know. I’m not sure… I mean, I’m used to being a winner, you know, from playing sports and shit, but this is grown up life… like, I know Im good, but I guess at this point I just don’t think about that. I’m just following my interests, exploring what I love so life can be bearable. Maybe I’d kill to progress, depends on the circumstance. I ain’t gonna wind up playing no hotels, or in no Kiss cover band or whatever, but I’m not gonna turn my back on MY DREAMS. My dreams, they are me.”

Run By The Gun, Issue #2

testimageheader10Facing a decision that will effect everyone he loves most, Peter Palermo must choose between doing the right thing, and following his life’s dream.

RBG Issue 2 has been a tremendous effort from all those involved. We tried to challenge ourselves, and push the story and artwork to unexpected places. It may not be perfect, but neither are our characters. We feel it’s a good read and the artwork top-notch.

Run By The Gun, Issue #1

RBG-Issue-1-Pg-1Peter Palermo tries to convince Jonah Gunn to join him in a new band. Their past relationship gives Jonah pause, until an unexpected event forces his hand.

RBG Issue 1? Yup, we said we were going to put a comic book out and we finally were able to do so. But not without the help from our friends at Terminus Media. Mark Stancil helped guide our RBG team along this first go around. Brian Hardison is an exceptional artist and his hard work on Issue 1 is greatly appreciated and admired. It was a blessing to work with Mark and Brian, and the rest of the Terminus team. We learned so much.

Issue 1 is an introduction to our RBG characters, the story, and of course the music. It’s great finally seeing Jonah, Peter, Ada and Sarah come to life. They’re a great bunch of kids. We hope you begin to like  them as much as we enjoyed bringing them to you.

We’ve been able to provide RBG Issue 1 in several ways. Just a heads up, we’re the only one who offers RBG Issue 1 for free.
