It’s been quite some time since we’ve tossed out a friendly update, and it’s high time we remedy that. Last month you may have noticed that we quietly helped launch a new book called Captain Flynt and the Corsairs of the Seven Systems! If you missed it, now is your chance to fix that – you can grab a physical copy by visiting the Robot Paper shop or a digital copy from Comixology. Featuring art by Ryan Howe and a host of other talented folks, Captain Flynt is packed full of swashbuckling space adventure. If you are fan of Star Wars, Buck Rogers, or really anything in space be sure to pick it up!
We are here to let you know about an exiting new project that we are involved in. Brian is currently working with producer Mychal Simka to help bring and animated children’s film to screens large and small.
We are happy to share that the Henchmen trade paperback can now be ordered from our online store!

As many of you know, we made a small batch of T-shirts to celebrate our launch at Wizard World Chicago Comic Con. They went quickly, and we’ve been asked quite a few times if we had any extras hiding out, to which we’d always respond with a sad “No.” That changes today!
Production is in full swing on the first issue of the new Henchmen mini-series, and it’s going to be a heck of a ride. With a lot of groundwork laid in the first one-shot, we’re really opening things up to breathe more, and get a chance to see more of Gary’s world. Check out Ryan’s art update!
Jamison has been on quite the adventure in the middle east. Read all about his Indiana Jones antics!

We want to take a second to thank everyone that stopped by the booth at Wizard World Chicago. We really enjoyed seeing and meeting everyone and felt like we got a really good reception from the comic book community. We made a big splash for a small publishing company. It was really fun, but…
