Pixelstrips.com Releases Big Iron - Volume One
Raleigh, NC — The first print edition from the web comic community, Kevin Volo's Pixelstrips.com, is now available from the print-on-demand site, Indyplanet.com.

Big Iron, the popular western on Pixelstrips.com, has been collected in a 56-page comic that includes a new six page story of Jacob Black, extras, and the full script to the first arc. All that wrapped in a beautiful cover by DC exclusive artist, Mike Norton (Jason and the Argobots, Black Canary, The All New Atom), with an introduction by Jonah Hex writer, Jimmy Palmiotti (Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters, Shanna the She-Devil).

"I started Pixelstrips.com about two years ago and Big Iron was one of the debut comics," said Kevin Volo, owner of Pixelstrips.com. "At the time I was really getting into the HBO show Dead Wood and wanted to try my hand at a western, especially after a lot of Johnny Cash and some western research. Big Iron was born. It's a pretty dark tale."

"What really did it for me was reading Jonah Hex from Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Grey, that and the Showcase." continued Volo. "I was then extremely lucky to find an artist that matched my vision for the world of Big Iron. Uriel Duran is a fantastic artist that really brings a distinct flavor to the comic. His stuff is just fantastic."

The 56-page Big Iron can be purchased from the print-on-demand site Indyplanet.com. It's the first in a new run of collected editions from Pixelstrips.com that will contain not only online content, but new, never published stories.
