TUNE by Derek Kirk Kim and Les McClaine

You need more TUNE

The first volume of TUNE will be released this November 13, 2012.  You can read first two volumes online just click on the image below to go to the site. There could be more with your support.  If this book release goes well the publisher First Second Books will be able to invest in the third volume.  I am amazed that Derek was able to workout the two book deal and the online serialization of the story.  And still so much more to tell about these wonderful characters shown below. 

The first volume of TUNE is up for pre-sale on Amazon.  But there other ways you a can help

  • Pre-orders are fantastic try our local comic book store or bookstore.
  • Reviews on Goodreads or Amazon, also your own website.
  • Asking your local library to purchase the book.
  • Recommend it to a friend. 

By the way the book does exist here is a picture.

Thank you for reading, back to making comics.
