Thread: 'Notorious Circus' Graphic Novel

'Notorious Circus' Graphic Novel
Just wanted to share some art and pages from this new project I'm working on. I'm calling it a 'graphic novel' here only because it's going to be published in France at Editions Joker/HZ in a hardcover 'Bande Dessinée' format and not because we want it to sound like a literary masterpiece
But we're also curious to see if we can create some interest for this book outside of France, so we did a quick (not definite) translation of the French texts.
Notorious Circus is written by Kid Toussaint and tells the story of an American traveling circus during the 'Roaring Twenties'. But there's also Eliot Ness working on his very first murder case, which involves a dead clown.
And there's zombies.
It's a bit of a spooky bedtime story.
Anyway, hope you'll enjoy!
Any tips on how to find an english-language publisher for this as well?
Here's the cover:
This first one is for promotion:
Here's my character-design sheet:
And some pages:
You can find more samples and info on our Notorious Circus Facebook-page
And more of my stuff here and here.

Had to dig this one up again because...
It's finally finished!
For French speaking/reading visitors that might be interested: Notorious Circus will be in book stores in France and Belgium next month.
We're still looking for ways to get this to English speaking/reading readers as well. Any tips there kindly appreciated!
Here's some more samples - hope you'll enjoy!
