Ex Astris: Homecoming on myebook

Ex Astris - Homecoming Promotional Art

In addition to publication of Ex Astris on ROK Comics and Clickwheel.net, a web version Ex: Astris Homecoming, a 10-page strip which first appeared in the British comic in Bulletproof Comics #2, is now available via myebook.

This standalone story, written by me and drawn by Bill Storie (aka Mike Nicoll), links with the strips published on ROK Comics and Clickwheel.net.

Included in this myebook is a one page article with some background on the origins of the strip, recently commissioned for an ongoing run in Spaceship Away for 2010.
