The Ballad of Gordon Barleycorn #1 Ashcan Preview Colin McHugh Duncan Sligh (11/24/2021) Scout



Scout Comics


Climb aboard the Big Purple Turtle and join Gordon Barleycorn on his path to become a prolific musician... and a functioning person! After getting evicted from his apartment, Gordon has been roaming a psychedelic desert with his friend/manager, a wise, casual creature named Giuseppe. The duo have bummed around with various bands here and there, but Barleycorn’s aimless, bohemian behavior has left him feeling hollow. Now his fire is lit, and he’s gonna build a legitimate career for himself!

This comedy adventure series travels to a world that acts like a funky funhouse mirror version of our own. It’s a story that appeals to people that are weary of more conventional sci-fi and fantasy stories. If “The Dude” from The Big Lebowski was a musician living in an adult Adventure Time-style world made by Raplh Bakshi, you would have The Ballad of Gordon Barleycorn.
