BLAST FURNACE 1, 280 Pg TPB
Blast Furnace is an improvisational comic from the swollen brain of Ryan Browne (God Hates Astronauts). It was produced by spending only an hour to write and draw each page--so it goes off the rails really really fast! This is the first time the material has been reproduced as a full-color, 280 page original graphic novel and it's printing was funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign. Unfortunately, since it's well printed and has a billion pages--the shipping ain't as cheap as I'd wish.
Blast Furnace is about a recreational thief named Ernest Furnace who steals just about anything in the name of fun--not financial gain. His story is constantly derailed by flashbacks, dream sequences, and side stories of owls on the run from the law, hideously deformed men who look just like a horse, lil' Draculas, and electricity shooting handlebar mustaches. It's totally bat $#!t crazy and a ton of nonsensical fun!

If you liked God Hates Astronauts, yet wish it featured more light-hearted thievery, then you will LOVE Blast Furnace!
