View Full Version : The Green Man on Youtube

14th April 2012, 11:18 AM
Some of you may have come across my Playmobil comic book "The Green Man". I got some very bad news last month - Geobra have asked me to stop selling the book. This means it's unlikely I will ever make the sequel - "The Doomsday Tablet.

Thomas Swift Productions is therefore now a non-commercial venture, and I have great pleasure in making "The Green Man" available to everyone to read for free. Geobra hae given me official permission to publish the book in any form I choose, as long as I do not sell it - and have suggested some ways to help me, that will become apparent in the coming months.

Now that printed books are out of the question and the downloads from Ave! Comics no longer available, I thought the best way of making the book available was as an audio-visual slide presentation on Youtube. At a later date I will be making it available as a simple slide show giving people more control over how they read it. I hope those of you who invested in buying the book will not be disapointed that it is now available for free - they have a unique and now rare product.

Chapter 1 is therefore now availabe on Youtube.


It is also available in German and French - although I'm still tweaking those videos, and a friend from Facebook very kindly offered to translate the book into Spanish for free! Therefore Chapter 1 is available in all these languages!

I hope you and your children enjoy it. Remember to turn on the sound! If you like it please link to it or embed it where you can!

The next chapter will come out in the next month or so :smile:

I finally got to the end ! (with the help of my friend Daniel in Chile who translated it into Spanish for me!).

I will now be concentrating on producing electronic book versions for those who prefer reading it in its original comic book format :smile:

I've now removed the offending music - 'Raiders of the Lost Ark', but to ensure everybody can enjoy the full experience Chapter 1 is now available on Vimeo :smile:
