New Reliable Press is proud to announce that KC Green's first Horrible collection is now available for preorder! Horribleville Vol. 1 is available in the regular edition or, for an extra 5 bucks, you can get KC to sign and sketch in your book.
The official launch date for the book is February 16th (KC's birthday!). Order now and your copy will ship out as soon as it returns from the printer.
Unlike past New Reliable Press books, this title will not
be available through Diamond Distributors. This will be available through our online store. A list of distributors will be added to the site soon, so local comic shops will still have outlets available to them to stock the book.
So, head on over to the New Reliable Press shop
and pre-order your copy today!

Updated Things Are Ok
I'm not normally a dude for drawing anthropomorphic characters, but the other night when I was finishing this strip up in my usual style (you can see the original under the cut), I thought I'd toss it on a lightbox and trace it out, trying to lose some of the "extra" details I'd added in. I also tried to keep the line weight consistent throughout.
I'm still not sure why I started to add animal heads, but I like the end result better than my original, so decided to stick with it through this story. I'm not going to be jumping on the anthropomorphic bandwagon, just kind of taking this for a test spin.( Version 1 under the cut.Collapse )
For those interested, I've started posting comics and drawings to my new site ihatecomics.com
Going to do my best to update it a couple times a week but, if my own history has taught me anything, I will likely fail at this.

Thanks everyone for the great feedback on the last couple strips. I got all self-conscious this time out and swapped up the lettering.
For a dude who makes most of his comic money by lettering comic books for others, I've got some down right sloppy penmanship.

I haven't really drawn much in a long time. I tried to do a 24 hour comic this past weekend, but just couldn't muster up the gusto to push myself past a page.
I noticed a lot of others were doing hourly comics and although I couldn't possibly do something on that scale, I have decided to make an attempt to get some moments down on paper. One or two every day or so, just to get myself back in the habit of drawing something -- even if it is just simple chicken scratch 2 panel comics about nothing in particular. Not even sure if I should be devoting the time to colour these, or just leave them in black and white.

New Reliable Press will be making our annual pilgrimage to SPX
on September 26th & 27th.
Come by and visit us at table E2. We have all the usual New Reliable titles, plus Jason Turner
, Steve Wolfhard
and copies of The Complete Nick O'Teen
, which are not yet available through the New Reliable online store.ALSO:
On Sunday, September 27th we'll also be at Word On The Street
in Vancouver. Manien Bothma, co-author of True Loves, will be there selling and signing books. Swing by and say hi!
New Reliable Press will be set up in the Word Under the Street portion of the show, along with a slew of other Vancouver based creators.
What are you doing on August 23rd? Nothing? Well, hell. Swing by Comix & Stories and visit with the fine folks from New Reliable Press as well as all the crazy talented locals and imports.
Jason Turner and Simon Roy will both be there signing, doing sketches and whatever else will make you more likely to buy their books.
Please speak softly though, as we'll likely be nursing hang-overs from the Comic Jam
the night before.
