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.

Yo, Z! What’s the Run By The Gun project all about?

Several years ago I had left the big, important relationship of my life up to that point, my band. Toward the end we were a traveling band, and my friend Rey Miranda used to travel with us sometimes, whenever he could, taking pictures, hanging out. So he knew those guys, he knew the music around us at that time, and he knew something of my relationship to my band and that life. That lifestyle.

When I attempted to put together a new band a few years later, I had asked Rey for suggestions on a band name. He had just returned from a family trip to the Philippines, and he offered, without hesitation, “Run By The Gun.”

Sequential Tart Review of RBG 1 by Olwyn Supeene

Thanks to Olwyn from Sequential Tart for a cool Grade and review. It’s great getting reviews, but we also want to hear from our readers as well. We read all the stuff you send us. Check out Olwyn’s review at the link below.

“What do you so when you get the break of your life in exchange for your artistic soul? If you’re Run By The Gun’s Peter Palermo, you quit. The repercussions of that decision propel the first issue of Run By The Gun, causing tension with his pregnant girlfriend and a dogged attempt to convince an old friend to let bygones be bygones and join a new band. Of course, it’s not as simple as that, and layers of complication peek through the clean black-and-white art, leaving us wanting resolution, or at least explanations. It’s sure to get messier before it gets cleaner, and it looks to be worth sticking around for.

Arguably the best part of this ambitious project is that creators Rey Miranda and Zambia Greene are generating music to go along with the comic. Run By The Gun is also a fictional band producing real songs, apparently on a scale somewhere between NANA’s Black Stones andQuestionable Content’s Deathmøle. So far, the first five tracks so far available have a loosely classic-rock feel, with sprinkles of contemporary and indie rock and, surprisingly, bluegrass. Though the songs are well put together, there’s a definite sense that this is a band that hasn’t found its voice yet. The plan is to have the music evolve as the characters evolve, mirroring the story through its soundtrack. I have to say, I’m looking forward to seeing that play out almost more than I’m looking forward to the continuation of the comic itself.”

Comics Forge review of RBG Issue 1.

Our first review of RBG 1 comes in from from Ted Brown of Comics Forge. We want to thank Ted, for taking the time out to look us up and write about RBG.

“Run By The Gun, from publisher RBG Entertainment, LLC, is an age-old tale of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll. The first issue revolves around a musician named Peter, who finds himself unable to sacrifice his artistic integrity, even if it means a stable future for himself and his pregnant girlfriend. After turning down a record deal with a mainstream label, Peter, turns to an ex band mate in hopes of putting together a new band setting into motion a wonderfully crafted, gritty, and true to life look at a bands struggle to make it to the top, while remaining true to their hearts.
