BULLET GAL trade paperback edition by Andrez666
BULLET GAL trade paperback edition
BULLET GAL:
It's Not You, It's Me [TRADE PAPERBACK EDITION]

12 ISSUES, 348 PAGES
MARCH 2015 via IF? COMMIX IN CONJUNCTION WITH UNDER BELLY COMICS

WORDS & PICTURES BY ANDREZ BERGEN
with guest images from 23 fellow artists including Walter Geovani (Red Sonja), and cover art by Niagara Detroit.

The 'Bullet Gal' series (via Australian indie imprint IF? COMMIX) has been a raging critical success over the past few months, combining as it does the pulp/noir of yesteryear, with a sci-fi/dystopia and golden age comic books, in a dada-inspired collage of cut-ups, sequential art, innovative painting, digital manipulation, and an overt glut of ammunition.

Set in the city of Heropa sometime in the 1940s (or not), it follows the path of teenage vigilante Mitzi, a.k.a. fledgling cape Bullet Gal, as she comes to grips with a metropolis that teeters on the edge of love, lust, betrayal and a wad of masked superheroes with hidden agendas aplenty.

All these moments applied by expat Australian writer ANDREZ BERGEN (based in Tokyo, also doing artwork here), who's previously published 4 novels and worked with Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell), as well as on the comic books TALES TO ADMONISH, TOBACCO-STAINED MOUNTAIN GOAT, and TRISTA & HOLT.

The 12-issue arc of BULLET GAL has been compared with SIN CITY and VELVET, and after a successful Kickstarter makes the transition to trade paperback in its entirety, for the first time available in North America thanks to UNDER BELLY COMICS.

BULLET GAL FEEDBACK
===============

"The writing is razor sharp, the art stark, and strikingly beautiful."
WEIRD AND WONDERFUL READS

"Not just any comics. Exceptional ones."
GEEKS OF DOOM

"I really like Bullet Gal as a character, and I want to see more of her adventures. She’s just too much fun to leave alone."
FANBOY COMICS


"Comparable to Sin City and Velvet."
KABOOOOOM


"Consistently impressive." 

SEQUART

"A really cool experimental way to do noir."
FRANCESCO FRANCAVILLA

"Bergen’s writing in Bullet Gal is smart and gritty, just like the art. He brings the city of Heropa to life in a historical noir fashion that just draws you in."
WORD OF THE NERD

"Stunningly crafted... Bullet Gal's mesmerizing blend of noir crime caper and wry sci-fi punk is utterly sublime."
SCI-FI JUBILEE

"A warped masterpiece."
THE CULT DEN

"An impressively unconventional approach."
PANELS & PIXELS

"The female Jason Bourne."
COMICBUZZ

"Pushes the outer limits of what is a comic book."
REGEEKEN

"Bergen continues to push creative boundaries with each issue of this series. Even without words the story bleeds its noir roots, keeping you engrossed and craving more."
ALL-COMIC

"It's a universe that's being constructed and then simultaneously deconstructed. A revelation."
THE COMICS ALTERNATIVE

"Nothing like it in comics."
SPARTANTOWN

Andrez Bergen
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
Japan
Aside from being an expat Aussie who’s lived in Tokyo, Japan, for 12 years, Andrez Bergen is a journalist, author, DJ, muso, artist, photographer and ad hoc beer and saké connoisseur. He likes to steal inanely furtive glances in a pseudo-metaphysical rear vision mirror, greedily brushing up on the “found art” chapter of the Dadaists’ handbook… all the time stimulated by Marcel Duchamp’s toilet urinal. Blah, blah.
Bergen has published a sci-fi/noir novel—Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat—that excessively cites old movies, and another that glances at geisha, comics, death, saké and sumo (One Hundred Years of Vicissitude).
A third book, Who is Killing the Great Capes of Heropa?, is a noir/comicbook fusion and will feature the art of people like Paul Mason (pmason83 @ deviantART) and others.
Bergen also makes wayward electronic music under silly aliases like Little Nobody, Funk Gadget, and Nana Mouskouri’s Spectacles.
