Road-Sign Hank and the Aliens

Back in 2011, a decade ago, I began writing a comic book.

A book about aliens invading earth, done in the art style of road signs. It was a goofy, family friendly, 1950’s-esque sci-fi adventure.

And the critics loved it.

From Ain’t It Cool News:

“Not only is the self-referential quality one of the finer points of the series, but the humorous writing makes the reader want to read every last word, instead of being tempted to skim.”

“Bryan Lunduke does not rest or depend on the fact that his style of artwork is purely based on road-signs; he takes advantage of this and backs up the pictures with hilarious text.”

From Wired:

“Some comics rely on gorgeous art. Some on fantastic writing. And some rely on that very hard to find sweet spot where the art and the dialogue work together to create something that is greater than the whole. That’s the case with Road-Sign Hank and the Aliens.”

Despite the overwhelmingly positive critical response, life (read: day job) interfered and I had to put Hank on hold. I hope to resume this story once life allows. In the meantime, the critically acclaimed issues #1 and #2 are available to enjoy. These are great to read to kids… nothing objectionable in here at all. You could read these to your toddler.

The digital version (in both PDF — DRM free, naturally) is available as a perk for everyone one of you lovely subscribers:
