Clones is Free Dec 26th

All right punks, Merry Xmas and all that.  You probably didn't see Santa because he came round mine to play some Playstation and talk about the next Beat Down novella, after which we drank a couple of crates of eggnog.  Apparently when he got back the elves decided to shave his beard for a laugh, so you might not see him next year either, depending on how long it takes to grow back.  In which case, never fear as Michael S. Hunter here will deliver you some presents instead.  I hope you like crushed rocks . . .

Anyway, I digress.  I just wanted to stop by and tell you that as a thanks for all the dozens of Christmas presents you punks have sent me I'm putting Beat Down 1 - Clones up for free just for one day, today - Dec 26th.  Boxing Day.  Which is awesome, because Russell T. Goode is a wrestler, which is almost the same as a boxer . . . all right, never mind.

Clones is free today only.  Get to it.

Badassaur cover reveal

All right, punks.  You asked for it.  I've got an early Christmas present for all you Beat Down! fans - the first look at the cover for Beat Down 3 - Badassaur!.  Is that not just frighteningly good?  Seriously, stop weeping with joy.  Knock it off.

As always, cover pic is by the badass Slamet Mujiono, with titles by the awesome Su Halfwerk.  And if you haven't, sign up for the new releases mailing list on the right of this post so you know when this monster is released on the world.  Tentative date is Jan 7th, earlier if I can eat up all the Xmas leftovers in time to get to it before the new year.

Here comes the Badassaur.  Look out!

Beat Down 3 - Badassaur! update

Hey punks, Michael S. Hunter here.  Just wanted to give you all a status update on Beat Down 3 because I know you're getting a little itchy about progress.

It's done!

Well, drafted at least.  I finished the beast a couple of nights ago after which I went out into the garden, dug a pit with my bare hands and buried it under a pile of rocks to allow it to mature for a while.  The cover has been commissioned so once that's done I'll post a preview online.  Judging by the timeframe we should be live by the New Year, but I'll try to push the bad boy out as a Christmas present for you all if I can.

Talking of Christmas, what are you all up to this year?  All my friends are getting awesome rocks wrapped up in sheets of steel.  Can't think of anything more hardcore than that.  And to save on postage I'll be throwing them direct into their back gardens from here so if you're taking any flights over the Christmas period keep an eye out.

What can we expect from Beat Down 4, I hear you ask?  Well, Beat Down 4 - The Sneevla ("Michael, you badass, what the hell is a "Sneevla"?" I hear you ask - well, you'll have to wait and see!) is already underway.  With a bit of luck it should be drafted and under that pile of rocks by New Year.

Any more future plans?

Hell, yeah.  After Episode 5 I'll be looking at getting a paperback omnibus edition out for all you punks.  That should be awesome.

Right, a crate of mince pies just showed up and I need to go get stuck in.  I spent all morning bench-pressing a two-ton piece of granite so I reckon I've earned it.

Take care out there, this is Michael S. Hunter signing out.
