A BRIEF RESPITE

Rather than blather on too much we’ve decided to take a little moment to refocus in September on what needs to be done; studio renovations and RAID TWO! We’ve got a fair sized list of comics below to keep you busy, while we indulge in the afformentioned. Read, enjoy, and we’ll see you in October - and to whet your appetite a little moarrrr, below is a small snippet of art by Joverine from his upcoming Balto story in the next volume of our anthology!

RAID TWO SKETCH EDITION PRE-ORDERS!

RAID TWO and our RAID TWO: SKETCH EDITION are now both available for pre-order in our online store and they're moving fast! The Sketch Edition is limited to only a 100 copies and the first dozen have already disappeared at Fan Expo!

Set to debut this fall, and ship out in November, our oversized omnibus of an anthology clocking in at 160 full colour pages is jam-packed with some great stories and amazing art by our RAID family!

GLOBAL SMALL TOWN SHENANIGANS


This coming Saturday September 22nd if you’re looking to nerd out, pay a visit to a few of our fine RAID fellow Eric Vedder at the Forest City Comicon in London, Ontario!

...if you’re not in London Ontario, but rather on the other side of the world in Ghent Belgium, then you might want to jump over to FACTS being held on September 29 & 30 and hang out with RAID miscreant Ramón Pérez! Say hello, get a sketch, talk about proper beard care...
