• About Brett Uren

    Collected edition up for Pre-Order now (JUN121309)!!! Issue 1 free on Graphic.ly via 215 ink! http://www.215ink.com/ http://www.kuzimu.co.uk.gridhosted.co.uk/ http://www.graphic.ly/ 'Kuzimu' on Myspace and Twitter! I started writing and creating this world at the age of 15 and have been adding little bits to it ever since! In late '06/early '07 I finally got the energy together to start writing and drawing it seriously as a comic book. Needless to say, the costs of printing it were astronomical, so I decided to publish it myself via my site, then via 215 ink and the online digital comic store at http://graphic.ly/ and now pre-order for print! So now it's down to you- my aim was to create a whole new world, so if you want to see more please buy it. The more you help by getting the latest issue and telling your friends, the more I can put back into continuing to create this unique work! That said, I have just finished part 1 of 'Ci-wa' (face), the next chapter following both parts of 'Yowa' (fear), 'Syoma' (kindness) and 'Lu-se' (hope), so you won't have to wait long for the exciting chapter in this (hopefully) epic tale! In the mean time, you can come and talk to me on Facebook/Twitter/Google+, email me, or better yet visit the site, your local comic store (pre-order only) or graphic.ly and let the comic take you into my world! - Brett Uren

    Kuzimu GN sold out in UK, moving to Dead Universe for re-release!

    by  • May 6, 2013 • Art, Blog, News

    Hi everyone,

    It’s been a while since my last Kuzimu-related post, but there is much to tell.

    The last of the UK Kuzimu graphic novel stock has been sold and as of the summer I am republishing the title with Dead Universe, who also put out my newest title, The Vale.

    I had fun with 215 Ink and always appreciated what Andrew Delquadro seeks to achieve with his company. However DUP is more accessible to me, both in the locality of its staff and the shows/conventions I can attend with them.

    So in the next couple of months, the first serialisation of Kuzimu with entirely new cover art will be available in print and digitally. More details on the street date for Issue 1 when I have it.

    For now, enjoy this rough first version of the new issue 1 cover:

    If we get real for a moment here, most of us small press guys, whether published by 215 Ink, Markosia or even Image, can hardly have said to have ‘made it’. Myself, along with friends like Magnus Aspli, Shawn Aldridge and Fabian Rangel Jr have expressed their lower moments on Facebook and elsewhere on...

    Interview on Geeks Unleashed Me!

    by  • October 26, 2012 • Art, Blog, News

    I had chat with Mark Brassington of Geeksunleashed.me about being an artist and the research that went into Kuzimu. To be fair he asked a few simple questions and I talked his leg off: http://geeksunleashed.me/2012/10/26/indie-spotlight-brett-uren-on-kuzimu/ He’s a great guy, we chatted at length on Google + & he even plugged my appearance at this...
