Best UVs

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

Howdy Folks!

Well, hope your holidays were swell. Ours was pretty good. We haven’t really blogged all that much since we don’t have that much going on at present. The next big thing for us is AFRODISIAC which is making it’s way to your better local comic shop very soon! (I’ll be sure to post when we have a concrete date.) We also have some other things in the work, so we’ll be sure to mention those when the deats are a bit more concrete.

I thought I’d link to a few of the Best Of lists that have been happening of late that are associated with the Ad.

• Patrick Godfrey of Velocity Comics gave REMAKE a nod on his best of 2009.

•  Johanna Draper Carlson gives JOHNNY HIRO a VERY BEST OF 2009, which is quite stunning.

• NY Magazine gives AFRODISIAC a best of 2009 nod. We’re on the cusp, people!

• Joe at Flashlight Worthy says DRIVEN BY LEMONS deserves a Best of 09 nod.

• Douglas Wolk gives LEMONS an honorable mention on his Best of 09 BN list!

• Matt at Drawn give PR3 a nod on his 09 Best of list.

• Publishers Weekly gave LEMONS a Best of 09 Nod, too.

• Jeff at JHU just gave JOHNNY HIRO a Best of Nod as well.

Well, that’s all the ones I can think of at this point. What else? If you’re in the mood for a new TeeShirt, I’d suggest checking out the swell design Joshua Cotter did for The Comix Revolution.

Something about the Fall and the plethora of events available…

This past weekend there was a McSweeny’s reading, a Zine festival and a combined silkscreen/beer event. (Along with one set of rents visiting!) Unfortunately, I only got to get to the Zine festival,  so, check the pics, if you are so inclined.

Other stuff:

Congrats to Josh Cotter and his Driven by Lemons being nominated as a Best of 2009 by Publishers Weekly. Very cool, in that I wish Josh the best that can happen. If I had to guess, I’d say the book should be in better LCSs on 11/18? You can check any number of places for shipping lists, and we’ll hopefully announce for certain on the twit, once we confirm.

That said, Pope Hats #1 is for sure in your better LCS on 11/11 in the US and 11/12 in some parts of the Great White North. (If your LCS doesn’t order our comics, you can always order from us.)

It looks like we’ll have THE BIGGEST SALE WE’VE EVER HAD sometime in the beginning of December. We’ll be sure to announce it here and other places when it goes live.

Stumbled (virtually) upon a new store in Norfolk called Local Heroes. Hope to stop by and check them out the next time I’m down there. Thanks to Todd Webb for the headsup.

Traditional Comics is up and running. One of my fave publishers… ever!

James Jean is on tour around the world. Clicky for the deats!

Many moons ago, our friends at the Dollar Bin interviewed Fred, Josh and Lamar at SPX. Thanks!

Afrodisiac is being printed as you read this. You can being informed of it, and other Jim Rugg stuffage at his new blog.

PR3: Hello, Goodbye

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

For those who like to keep score on such details:

The first printing of PR3 is gone.

A second printing is underway.

And for those who are curious…

We printed 25% more than we did PR2 (and remember we are currently in a down economy?!?), I confirmed the qty. with James and he felt it was enough, and by golly, I guess there are just more and more JJ fans out there.

If you want to find a copy, most all the better comic shops across America will be receiving them tomorow (due to the Labor Day holiday). As well, you can always purchase from our friends Last Gasp, or if you are inclined, we at AdHouse have copies, and James should be getting his copies today.

One after 090909.

Even More…

One of the first things I read* after returning from Comic-Con was their 40th Anniversary Souvenir Book. (Not to be confused with the Chronicle one. This is the one that they hand out when you enter the show.) I LOVED it. Since it was their 40th, they went back and gave a recap of every year, along with memories from people who have been part of the show since the beginning. You got to see fantastic program covers, where the convention has exhibited, who the guests were… fascinating stuff! To all those involved, thanks and GREAT JOB! (*I also read some submissions along the way, but finished those after the SDCC book.)

The next four orders that get placed through the AdShop will receive a FREE scratchndent copy of REMAKE. Just sayin. (the normal disclaimer applies.)

David at the PreCur on HIRO:  “So basically, what we’re dealing with here is a loving, functional couple dealing with the occasional outburst of genre mash-up, based on whatever Chao pulls out of the pop-culture junk drawer.”

SDNN on JJ:  “As a welcome reprieve from his larger projects, Jean finds pleasure in drawing in his sketchbooks as a self-contained world free from the constraints that are par for the course of any commercial-art career.”

Hipster Dad on TRH:  ” It’s done with a delightfully balanced sense of scale and wit, with wonderful artwork and character designs.” via TCR.

Don @ EyeonComics on TTT: “But artist Scott Morse reveals that he often feels as lost as the rest of us. He’s struggling to live a good life, to be a good father. The world around him and the people in it can be frustrating, even infuriating, but when he pauses, he can see the wonder in the quieter, everyday moments as well.” via TCR.

Episode Three of the ISR’s MoCCA Reportage.

Drawn talks the PR3.

And speaking of Drawn, a big thanks to Matt for helping us make connections. We just might be helping a certain someone bring a certain thing to certain shops at some point in the future. (Break out your decoder rings people!)

PR3 Update

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

For those interested…

It looks like PR3 should be hitting the states around September 9th. Add a week or two for distribution/processing, and I guess you should see a copy in a local shop or via Amazon at the end of September*. Just thought you’d like to know.

*Granted it could come in sooner, or get delayed, it’s all up to the big boats and boys now.

Psst: Are YOU a James Jean fan?

Friday, June 5th, 2009

For those making the trip to either MoCCA or HeroesCon, you can stop by the AdHouse to check out a 98% complete dummy of PR3.

And because table space IS limited, be sure to ask me about some of the special production items I might be willing to part with from the book!
