SMALL PRESS GRAPHIC NOVEL GOES BIG
Contemporary creator releases first comics trade paperback
Comics creator Max West announced his imaginative comics anthology, Sunnyville
Stories Volume 1, is now available for sale to the general public.
Sunnyville Stories is a creator-owned comics series in the vanguard of alternative comics.
It tells the saga of a charming village called Sunnyville, inhabited by anthropomorphic animals dressed in old-fashioned clothing. The series itself revolves around two energetic teenage cats, Rusty Duncan and Samantha “Sam” Macgregor, who have all sorts of adventures.
This 128-page trade paperback collects the first three episodes of Max West’s cutting-edge series. These spectacular stories have the two protagonists meet the likable
townspeople of Sunnyville, compete in a hard-hitting pinball contest, and confront local bandits.
“My goal in creating these comics is not to offer a better mousetrap, but a different
mousetrap,” maverick creator Max West explains, “My work involves an enriched world, electrifying characters, and robust stories. Unlike mainstream superhero comics, Sunnyville doesn’t involve rebooting of continuities, renumbering of entire series, or the constant death and resurrection of characters.”
Max West holds a creative writing degree from Baruch College and has also trained at the prestigious School of Visual Arts in New York City, receiving an education from top talent in the field of comics.
Sunnyville Stories Volume 1 retails for US$8.99 and is available from Indyplanet.com.
