NEWS! Of THE (Art) World!
We've been gone a MONTH so there is a LOT of news to fill you in with:
SILVER SPRINGS MD (APL)- DIAMOND DIGITAL ROLLS OUT-- AND UNDERCOVERFISH is WITH THEM! Imagine a future where readers and fans can visit their local comic shop to buy not just physical copies of new comics, but also digital editions that aren’t available anywhere else, and can be viewed in multiple platforms including iPhone, iPad, web, and others. Well that Future is HERE now and one of the first titles included in the launch is Andy Fish's DRACULA. Long a believer in the digital format Fish is excited about participating.
His imprint line, UnderCoverFish Books, will be offering a graphic novel title EACH month for the coming year-- included in the line up are Fish's other graphic novels as well as one's by the artists collaborating in the group including Veronica Fish's FRANKENSTEIN and Alison Cowell's HOT DONUT SALAD. Not confirmed but rumored is PIRATES OF MARS by JJ KAHRS and VERONICA FISH.
I feel for my friends with comic book stores-- and hope they understand that what we're trying to do here is figure out a way to keep them relevant with the advent of new technology. I'm not going to debate the merits of digital vs print or how much better it is to "actually have a real book"-- it doesn't matter how we feel about it-- much like record stores and video stores the technology is changing and as retailers and creators we need to adapt or we run the risk of going the way of the dodo bird.
WEREWOLVES OF WISCONSIN available for PRE-ORDER! You can order it at BARNESANDNOBLE and it's in the new McFarland Catalog. I'm hoping it's available before the listed release date of December 28th-- I'm killing myself to get this done by mid-August in the hopes they can have it in stores for Halloween.
Here's a page from the book:
The Robert Johnson story may not involve ghosts or werewolves but it does involve selling your soul to the devil to become one of the greatest blues musicians ever to pick up a guitar. It's also apparently up at Amazon too.
