Postby The Fat Man » Sun May 14, 2006 1:40 pm

"The Fat Man" - A graphic novel serialised is now live at http://www.the-fat-man.co.uk
It has a distinctly retro feel, with pop art colours and pop art story line.
Free to read online
New pages daily.

It is illustrated by Alan Tanner. A veteran UK artist who has worked with Time Out, OZ magazine, Hawkwind, Soft Machine and many other legends of British counter culture of the sixties / seventies.

Synopsis.
Responsible for the death of millions, the mysterious ‘Tegel Project’ threatens the very core of civilisation. Betrayed by MI5, the Fat Man finds himself caught between the blazing guns of would-be assassins and the blood-red lips of silent movie star Louise Brooks.
Unable to trust anyone and faced with a series of unpalatable choices, he careers madly along the arch of time on the seemingly impossible mission of keeping himself and his lover alive
.

All profits from this project will be going to a mental health charity.
The Twisty-Headed Man Company - Charity Number (SC021585)
This is an award winning charity and well worth supporting.

"A very strange, but interesting, comic... possibly one of the strangest time travel related stories around." Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou http://www.indiereview.co.uk

"I predict that The Fat Man will be a big success." Paul Rainey http://www.pbrainey.com

"The art is very pop arty and it grows on you. Time-hopping Nazi, shoot-outs, explosions, intrigue, Hitler and, oh, yes, cosmic cheese. Can you fail?" Terry Hooper http://www.comicbitsonline.com
