The Circle Graphic Novel

Project 2012-06-06 03:29:12 +1200

The Circle is a noir non linear tale about four university students: Chris, Anwar, Mike and Brian who spend most Friday nights, and of course some Saturday nights drinking alcohol and playing games. With semester break looming around the corner, Brian having returned from his grandmother's funeral suggests a new game, which he has invented: The Circle, a game which entails exposing their most personal secrets and desires for a large sum of money. But what the Police Detectives want to know is how one of the four ended up dead and another left fighting for his life in hospital. Maybe Anwar and Chris can explain what took place.



This noir non linear crime drama graphic novel is based on a student feature film which the author produced in 2006 as part of a Bachelors Degree in Digital Media -Digital Filmmaking. Aru spent 2yrs painstakingly creating each panel with a mouse and Photoshop to produce the woodcut style illustrations for the 160 pages graphic novel.

Getting some local comic folk to review the book for me.

I sent a copy of the graphic novel to some local friends in the comic industry to have a read an to let me know what they think. I am hoping to add to their comments in the book.

I am still trying to figure out how to do a vid for the book for PledgeMe. You would think that someone with a Digital Media-Digital Filmmaking Degree wouldn"t have a problem with it but I am trouble deciding what I want to put out.
