Monkey Fist is now rolling off the printers!

first sale

The first few copies of Monkey Fist have arrived! We’ve already begun getting books to our backers and we’ll be sending more as we get them from our printer. Last weekend was also C2E2, where we debuted Monkey Fist to the world! We had a fantastic show, saw some excellent work in Artist Alley, broke our sales record from last year, and met a lot of new friends, colleagues, and fans. If you couldn’t make it to the show, check out our photo gallery on Facebook and see what you missed!

We’re still working hard on finishing the RAGE EDITION, and we’ve packed it with all kinds of great stuff. The annotated script looks great, and we’re loading in as much info and behind-the-scenes extras as we possibly can. Preliminary sketches, the evolution of Monkey’s character design, winking references and Easter eggs you might not have caught on the first read through, and much more! The t-shirts are also being printed even as you read this article, and of course Brad’s working hard on a special deleted scene exclusively for our RAGE EDITION backers.

Can’t wait to get your own copy of Monkey Fist? No problem. The digital copy of Monkey Fist will be available this weekend. If you’re one of our Kickstarter backers, be sure to check your e.mail, as we’ll be giving you a special download link to get your copy. But if you missed out on our Kickstarter, we’ll be making the digital copy available for purchase through our Gumroad online store!

So what’s next? C2E2 was a huge show and a tremendous success, but we’re just getting started. Next week, we’re travelling all the way across the border for the Toronto Comics Arts Festival! We’ve never been to TCAF, but we know it’s an incredible show and we can’t wait to make or our Canadian debut there. Some of our fellow comic creators from Chicago are also making the trip, and we’re excited to meet more artists from across North America and see their work. If you’ll be at TCAF, please drop us a line and let us know you’re coming – we’d love to hear from you! After TCAF, we’ve got a full lineup of conventions ahead of us, including big time newcomer shows like Indy Pop Con and Special Edition: NYC.

And don’t forget about the Monkey Fist launch party! Once we’ve released the RAGE EDITION, we’ll be gathering to celebrate not only the release of our book, but to celebrate all of you, our fans and backers who have made this book possible. The exact date and location are still being worked out – we’ve been checking out some really cool venues for our party, and we’ll send out information as soon as everything is finalized. But until then, stay tuned for more Monkey Fist news and updates – and for those of you who can make it, we’ll see you at TCAF!
