What's Opplopolis?

A public intellectual, a collectivist pop-star and her hard-boiled assistant, a spy, an artist, a hacker, two cinema zinesters, a baron and his family, a b-movie director turned aristocratic gangster, a group of mask-wearing cultists, a mysterious gunman, a no-nonsense bartender, an immortal grad-student, too many dogs, and a race of extraterrestrial beings are all bound together by the mysterious "Marvedyne." But do any of them really know what "Marvedyne" is?

An on-line graphic novel published in 24-page chapters every six weeks. Updates on Tuesday and Friday.

Couple of things

posted October 11, 2014 11:10 am

Just a short note to keep everyone informed. I checked on the amazon page for the Opplopolis collection today and noticed that the kindle edition of the first chapter has been tied to the print collection (which is why Tim seems to have reviewed the book twice.) I should have realized that this would happen as they are both the first volumes of a series called "Opplopolis", but it took a while for amazon to make the connection so I didn't notice right away. I did something to fix it, but until that takes effect please don't be misled; you can't actually get the 278 page book on kindle for $2.99.

I'm taking a little break, in case you haven't noticed. Just a little time to mull over some things without worrying about knocking out four pages of comics every week. I've got a trip coming up from which I will return on the 23rd, so I'll get back to this sometime after that. How long after, I don't know. Like I said, the point is I'm not worrying about it.

I am participating in that inktober thing, though, if you're interested.

Opplopolis #13

posted September 9, 2014 11:32 pm

13 is finished. Gumroad link here.

I know that only a few of you take advantage of the digital issues, but I'm going to keep it up for consistency's sake. If you've never seen them, I put a little teaser drawing from the next episode in the back that you won't see anywhere else. Not that there's anything great about those drawings (they're just sketches, really) but I think it's funny that there's that little piece of extra information out there. No biggy, though. I consider the pdfs as an alternative to a donate button.

Now that the print collection is out, though, if you want to shoot me a little money that's the way to go. Here's your biweekly link to the amazon page. It's 44% off this week, and if my experience with the NPWIL books is any indication that's probably as low as it's going to get. It's actually at a price now that I am totally comfortable with. So if you've been holding off on it now's the time.

Opplopolis Volume 1

posted September 1, 2014 11:08 am

Remember how I've been promising Opplopolis in print for the past six months? Remember how I've been messing around saying maybe it should be in black and white and maybe it should be in five chapter collections rather than ten and bla bla bla? Well, no! Here it is: volume one, chapters one through ten, full-color, 278 pages, (I mean, it's actually kind of heavy!), Cover gallery in the back, lightly edited (just a little, just to fix some wonky faces here and there), matte cover that feels strangely rubbery (gross, but in a good way), cheap at twice the price (well, no, not really, but it's not that bad, considering.)

For sale. Now. Here.

Buy it now or leave a review. Even if you hate it. Especially if you hate it! Why does nobody say anything bad about my work, I wonder. Or, you know, a good review is fine, too.

Oh yeah, PS, BTW, those NPWIL books are still for sale, too. Volume one, and volume two. The price is slowly creeping up on them, so if you haven't gotten your set, you'd better pick them up soon. And if you have, please leave a review there, too.
