Greetings Dieselfunkateers! When I’m doing my work, I oftentimes will have a soundtrack handy in Apple Music or on Youtube. However, I only listen to music that serves as a soundtrack for what I’m working on. Matty’s Rocket is a period drama set in the early to mid part of the retro-20th Century. So it helps tremendously to be in the zone. Music helps me do that. My go to is mostly the great John Barry. However, sometimes older music meant for different purposes serves a film better than the original score. The most famous example being the use of classical music for Kubrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’.
ENTER: Jerry Goldsmith. His ‘ALIEN’ soundtrack is one of the more sinister and elegant musical movements in film history. But of course my prior example applies for that film. The final song used in the first Alien movie was a romantic composition Symphony No. 2 “Romantic”: I. Adagio. It somehow does a brilliant job of signaling Ripley’s escape from the Xenomorph. Yet and still, it also showed a reference for the loss of life of the other crew members as well as the utter loneliness, melancholy, and ADVENTURE, inherent in Great Drama.
Greetings Dieselfunkateers! Tim Fielder here. It is my distinct pleasure, and the pleasure of the Dieselfunk Studios team to present MATTY’S ROCKET BOOK ONE.
This book has been a labor of love that I have wanted to do for many decades. Each panel has been painstakingly painted and composed. Each line of dialogue and concept design has been lovingly attended to. This book collects the stories of Matty’s Rocket 1-3 with a few narrative surprises, tons of extra content, and guest contributors.I gave it everything I had. I hope you feel the heart and love that went into it as well. For the individual issues and the Graphic Novel go to: www.dieselfunkstore.com
Greetings Dieselfunkateers, This will be a quick post. As stated before we are in constant reassessment of what needs to be done to make our initiatives work. We stated in our last journal entry that High John Conqueror would be folded into The Dieselfunk Show (TDFS). Why? from a perspective of BRANDING, VIEWS, CONTENT, and ATTENTION; the fact is, TDFS captures more mindshare than High John Conqueror. However, High John Conqueror provides added value for The Dieselfunk Show. So all of the experts we’ve consulted with have stated CONSOLIDATE.
But you know me. I then began to debate about whether or not it would be a gradual transition or just immediately begin airing High John from the next episode 8 on alternate days between TDFS. Our Decision: because High John is only a few episodes in we will start it over for all of TDFS subscribers who haven’t seen it. It’s gonna hurt but..
Greetings Dieselfunkateers! The last week was a MASSIVE WEEK for Dieselfunk Studios.High John Conqueror and The Dieselfunk Show have now premiered. We have now moved on to the intricate and long term work of building a brand, audience, and market for our content.

I’ve kept a Journal for decades and used to writing down the occasional thought towards processing events. It’s been a very useful exercise. To that end, I’ve decided to take some time to write down my ideas on comics, media, and the REALITY that is the INTERNET. We’ll call it say; THE DIESELFUNK JOURNAL. I’m sure there are far more knowledgable and experienced folks in this area than I. So if what I’m stating is old hat or irrelevant then simply ignore me.
In REAL NUMBERS, the mainstream comic book readership maxes out at 100-200 thousand readers give or take a few thousand. Spread proportionally over the level of strength and size of each publisher, access becomes a matter of life..and more often…Death.
So how does the one man/woman or independent shop, like DIESELFUNK STUDIOS, get in the game? Not just the comic game, but the game that goes beyond that. Well that’s what this journal series will be about. We will investigate a lot, learn a lot, make mistakes…A LOT, and hopefully have the occasional bout of SUCCESS, a LOT:-)
Lets begin with the Thesis: IF…YOUTUBE has over 1 Billion users, INSTAGRAM is at 7 Million users (pushing to reach 1 Billion by the end of the year), Facebook is virtually at 2 BILLION USERS!, and other networks are massive as well, would it not make more sense to GO ALL IN ON COMICS EXCLUSIVELY IN SOCIAL MEDIA. Completely different Paradigm Right?
