Samples of my graphic novel project: an update of George Orwell’s Animal Farm

If you saw my last post, I plugged a small project that I have been working on. I thought I would unveil some samples as I work to turn it into an e-book or publish it online in a sort of slider-style website. So here are a few sample pages from the book, a graphic novel update of George Orwell’s Animal Farm. I have two working titles: ‘The Animaux Fable of the Raise And Fall of the Sheeple Party’ or ‘The Cautionary Tale Of A Machiavellian Fox Among The Bird Brains And Jackass Dimwits’. If this graphic novel can catch someone’s eye in American, perhaps it will help me emigrate!

  • ‘The Animaux Fable of the Raise And Fall of the Sheeple Party’ or 'The Cautionary Tale Of A Machiavellian Fox Among The Bird Brains And Jackass Dimwits’
  • Mr. Lee Bird is eager to burnish his credentials but not having any original ideas of his own so he also joins the plot.
  • .....Meanwhile, Mr. Murdoch Lion of Fox & Hare News offered to broadcast the propaganda to sell the new Sheeple Party ‘You just have to love those ‘Contracts On Animauxland!’
  • The chattering classes of Fox & Hare News bury themselves in twittered theories why the plot failed which become their chrysalis.
  • Mr. Kingfisher Rubio, desperately looking for a cause, joins Mr. Cruz Auk’s mission.
  • The urban rat ponders his empty bowl and sliver of moldy cheese. ‘The crumbs of trickle down prosperity don’t feel my belly!’
  • The unfortunate Urban Rats queue up for food stamps which Animal Farm Inc has just canceled. ‘Corporate Welfare and Entitlements are strictly for us Agriculture Cartel Pigs!'
  • ‘But you have just cancelled both food stamps and employment insurance for those laid off by the Great Recession!’ Ex-President Donkey brays. ‘Damnation! We have to do something!’
  • Mr. Newt Cockatoo continues to bluster for plot - ‘Chaos is so glorious isn’t it?’
  • Mr. McCain Elephant. ‘An elephant should be considered above such things’ but he still decides to join the conspiracy anyway.
  • ‘I am sooooo hungry!’ Mr. Koch Crocodile tells his brother Mr. Koch Vulture. ‘When do we dine?’
