As my partner can attest, Bartholomew of the Scissors has been a huge obsession in my life.
One thing I love about the book is the groundbreaking art. Daniel Crosier, an amazing artist from Denver, created the art for Bartholomew with a combination of pyrography (wood burning) and mixed media on 88 pine planks (not including the five covers). I think it is an amazing achievement. Crosier has an amazing talent for creating vivid and disturbing faces, which the graphic novel has in abundance.
The four issue comic book miniseries came out four years ago, from September to December in 2008, and it was a heartbreaking flop. As a result, the publisher canceled the trade paperback book that was due to be published in 2009.
In retrospect, I wish we had skipped the individual issues of the comic and published the entire story as a graphic novel in trade paperback from the beginning.
Four years later, Bartholomew of the Scissors is now available in one ebook with four chapters.
I have great love for Bartholomew of the Scissors, but reading it is bittersweet because I also see flaws and mistakes in the storytelling (I have that problem with everything I've published).
Without further ado, please check out the full Bartholomew of the Scissors, complete at last in one ebook (click the cover below):
