The Brutal Blade of Bruno the Bandit

Multiple File Formats

Busting loose from the pages of his long running webcomic (, Ian McDonald brings you this collection of the very first misadventures of mercenary hero Bruno the Bandit.  Join Bruno, his microdragon sidekick Fiona, and a varied cast of characters who populate the Kingdom of Rothland in a quest for fortune and adventure as some of the best comics on the web become some of the funniest comics in self-publishing.
In addition to a great lineup of Bruno the Bandit stories, Volume One of "Brutal Blade" features all-new cover art by legendary Conan artist Ernie Chan and comments from equally legendary comics writer Roy Thomas. The interior features an introduction by Bill "Kevin and Kell" Holbrook, and pinup art from a who's who of webcomics greats, including Pete "Sluggy Freelance" Abrams and Chris "Superosity" Crosby.
We've worked hard to make sure that the first issue of "Brutal Blade of Bruno the Bandit" is a volume that any fan of quality comics will want to add to their collection.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
