This year, Image Comics (The Walking Dead, Saga, Spawn) published Jeff Rougvie’s first Graphic Novel, Gunning For Hits (read more about it here). Inspired by an idea he had while working with David Bowie. Barnes & Noble picked int as one of their top Graphic Novels of July.
Here’s the publisher’s blurb:
“Record company talent scout Martin Mills jumps at the chance to make a comeback album with his favorite rock legend, Brian Slade. But when it goes sideways, Martin is forced to use deadly skills from his past in a desperate bid to save his reputation, and the artist’s career. Set in the 1980s New York City music scene, this real-world music business crime thriller from writer/music producer JEFF ROUGVIE (David Bowie, Big Star) and artist MORITAT (Spirit, Harley Quinn, Hellblazer). Check out the massive Spotify playlist! Collects GUNNING FOR HITS #1-6.”
There’s a standard paperback available in bookstores and comic shops. There’s a digital version for Kindle and other devices, but right here is the only place you can get the deluxe hardcover (with a variant cover by acclaimed Pop Artist Butcher Billy not found on the mass-market version), as well as prints, the paperback and individual issues.
Jeff: “I’ve worked on this project for over a year, and loved every minute of it. I have many more Martin Mills stories I want to tell. If you enjoyed the series or enjoy what I share on this site about Bowie and other artists I’ve worked with, buying something here is the best way to support my work.”
