Just a quick note to my AdPeeps that I wish them a fantastic 2009!

As the email that went out a few weeks ago stated, we have a full 2009 ahead of us. Here’s a little recap of said email:

After taking a bit of a break in 2008, we’re back in the saddle in 2009! So far we have the following books slated for the early part of the year:
AND THERE YOU ARE by Ronnie del Carmen
ACE-FACE: THE MOD WITH THE METAL ARMS by Mike Dawson
REMAKE by Lamar Abrams
(And those are just the ones we have covers for!)
We also have the following titles in the works:
JOHNNY HIRO VOL. 1 by Fred Chao
PROCESS RECESS 3 by James Jean
FCHS by Vito Delsante & Rachel Freire
DRIVEN BY LEMONS by Joshua Cotter
And possibly even more!
(Yeah, we know the economy is in the toilet, but we’re hoping enough people still love their AdComics so that we can still bring them to you.) If interested, you can check out the site for additional details about each title.

Peace!

Oh Happy Daze…

(oh happy daze.) Can you tell I use to be in the choir in middle school?

Stan, Frosty and most of us at stately AdManor wish you and yours (or most of you and yours) a Happy Holidaze. Enjoy your friends, food, family and any other fun stuff that begin with “f”.

We’d like to thank all of the peeps that help make 2008 special for us. You know who you are.

2009 is just around the corner, and in the next few days we should be updating the site to include info for most of what we hope to publish that year. I say “hope” since there’s that whole economy thing that people keep talking about.

Anywaze.. taker eazy or anywaze you can. PEACE!

As in Ketch’nup.

Was it really almost 20 years ago that I convinced Matt Wagner to visit Shepherd College for a gallery/lecture? Yep. Look, we both had some hair back then! I posted some photos over at Flickr of the event. I don’t “think” I posted these before.

We decided to participate in the launching of Comixology’s app for the Iphone. Here’s a little story about it. I’m pretty sure the SKYSCRAPERS preview is one we haven’t shown anywhere else. I could be wrong though.

ADD gives some love to his favorite story of the year. My part of the picture? Just giving her a place to show her stuff.

You know who is a class act? James Jean. Nuffsaid.

That’s it for now. I’m off to get some coffee.. it’s freakin’ COLD today!

“It is a sensitive masterpiece that can stand side-by-side with any literary debut of the last two decades.” — Laurel Maury, NPR

Congrats to Josh. I mean… wow.
