Old School

Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

About a year ago issue ten of Hope For The Future was unleashed upon an unsuspecting world. The unsuspecting world didn’t really notice, however, as the only move I made to promote that particular consumer item was to send it to SFX magazine. Fanzine of the Month may be a hotly sought accolade but it certainly doesn’t translate into sales.

So in the interest of Halloween, the credit crunch, and shameless self promotion I have created another animated trailer, featuring scenes from the comic (I use the term “animated” advisedly. Think Captain Pugwash rather than Wall-E). Special mention must be given to the spectacular music composed and created by Rum & Coke. I asked for spooky, rock and big ending, in that order, and that’s what I got (incidentally, the final piece puts me in mind of Ash’s tangentelly Episode Two related angst metal thrashathon?Clones. But I’ve been thinking a lot about clones in general).

The comic can be purchased from our store, or from our American printer Indyplanet.

It’s not there anymore, don’t look for it

Back in “the day”, in times of yore there was a site called FlyingMonkeyComics.com. It was home to Flying Monkey (of course) and Hope For The Future, so we decided to make a trailer for it, with the help of our musical director and honorary Flying Monketeer, Oliver. The URL is long gone, but there’s enough HFTF stuff in it (as well as Chimpanzee Democracy, details over at the more parochial sounding FlyingMonkeyComics.co.uk) to show it here. Ah memories…
