RevolveЯ is Salgood Sam’s personal anthology project.


Like Acme Novelty Library, 8 Ball, that sort of thing.
A place to put whatever he's working on at the moment.

Here is a selection of pages from One and Two.
RevolveЯ Three will be soft launched in August!
Missplaced
is a short wordless story based on a dream. | The premis is, what do you do when you imagine you've lost your imagination? Dreamer: a.j.duric. This was an experiment with silent narratives, and symbolism. In the end your meant to find your own meaning in it.
Where the wild things went
A 4 page sequential poem inspired by my late 20's and my favourite children's book, Maurice Sendak's Where the wild things are. | When i was a kid the Maurice Sendak classic children's story about Max's adventures with the Wild Things, and that little nudest Micky in the Night Kitchen were my favorites. My mother read them to me, and then i read them many times after. One of my favorite places in Kensington Market - where i spent the first 6 years of my life or so growing up and latter moved to in my 20's - was the night kitchen bakery on collage, mostly because of the mural covering the outside of art from the Sendak book. Like many things from my childhood it's long gone now. In 98 after moving to Montreal i wrote a poem on the back of a napkin while wandering the bar scene and feeling like a stranger in the land. Later i put it to art. It was one of the first times i felt i had really managed to both write and draw something exactly the way i wanted to, that caught how i felt when i set out. It's been published a few places anthologies now and remains one of my more popular short stories
Pin City
Pin City is an older short piece that I hope to have time to come back to and continue working in the world of. Right now it's just a few pages long, introduces Joseph Cotton. But I have something much larger in mind in which he's one of the major protagonists for surreal introspective story that folds into a larger Sci-fi canvas, a project called BLISS. Don't know when i'll get to do that, but i have these pages in colour that have mostly just beein published in B&W. I've updated the lettering since I last published this in RevolveЯ One.
Honolulu Lories
“Big Al Baboo liked to drink his booze and lose his keys in the pondering pool at Honolulu Lorie’s Lava Love Lounge and Poodle Emporium, where the green halvah is half priced on Tuesdays.” - I wrote that one night on a bar napkin, and did a little doodle. For a long time i wanted to write a story around that, eventually when i was asked to contribute to Popgun I did.
The rise and fall of it all
A story about those of us who find ourselves on the out side of society and of our own selves. | The rise and fall of it all is a collaboration with Jazz man John O’Brien. We started this project in April 0f 2006, when i went to Chicago for a research trip with some grant support. I completed a 15 page opening chunk of the story, which appeared in B&W in the first print edition of RevolveЯ. I have other portions drawn, and laid out about 60 pages. In all it’s probably 150 pages. But ironically given the subject matter, it got shelved for a bit due to economics and life stuff, but I’ve wanted to complete it for some time. Recently decided to get the ball rolling even if slowly on that, so i'm posting it when i can here. The project has it’s own blog here. There’s a full sound track for this, you can check out the mp3 files here, and this one is the audio version of the first 15 pages of story, with actor John Fuhr reading the part of Eliot - he's also the model for the part: ACT1Firstversion.mp3
