ZERO SUM BUBBLEGUM - proof copy


It's always exciting to get the proof copy of your latest comic, and today the postie has brought me Zero Sum Bubblegum.

A squarebound effort this time, with 60 pages. Since I sent off the files, I've completed another one pager, and one of the stories in here has become a trilogy (a trilogy consisting of three pages), so I'm going to swap those around. A few typos here and there and then I'll send off for the print run.

Approaching the finish line!
