At 8th Wonder press, we want to stretch the boundaries of what comics can do. For example: can you tell a complete story in the space of two pages? A few months ago we put out an open call to comics creators and the answer was a resounding yes. at that moment Uncanny Adventures: Duo was born. In fact, we got SO MANY terrific submissions we’re turning the latest volume of Uncanny Adventures into a mini-series!

We’re thrilled that many creators are joining us again, including

  • Ellie Fortune, with an all-new Limboland story
  • Mister V, with 2 (TWO!) new stories
  • Dan Conner, introducing the Zombie Brats to “My Gal, the Zombie”
  • Novelist Andrez Bergen
  • Mason McKane
  • Nico Izambard and Nick Nall

We also have a terrific representation of very talented creators working with us for the very first time

  • Ramon Gil, telling us a story of a taxi driver’s worst (or is it best?) day
  • Dan Schaefer and John Dover’s Johnny Scotch
  • Colorado cartoonist and soon-to-be comics great Conor Smallwood
  • Bryan Hoover and Ron Jospeh revealing what’s Under the Bed

These aren’t all of the creators we have lined up, though.  We’ll be introducing more of them to you over the next few weeks, so stay tuned.

For now, though, we’d like to present the cover for the first issue of our latest series Uncanny Adventures: Duo!

8th WONDER PRESS IS LOOKING FOR COMIC CREATORS!Uncanny Adventures - Science vs Mad Science Front Cover

After the successful release of our UNCANNY ADVENTURES and SCIENCE vs MAD SCIENCE anthologies, 8th Wonder Press is accepting submissions for our third volume!  The new collection will be released in May 2015 in time for the summer convention season!  This year our book will be a standard-sized, saddle-stitched comic (rather than our previous perfect bound collections) ENTIRELY of 2-page stories!  That’s right, rather than a unifying theme this year, we want to explore the limits of comics and explore the different ways comic creators can tell a complete story with only 2 pages.
Every story will receive a two-page spread for you to lay out however works best for you.’

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!Uncanny Adventures - Science vs Mad Science Front Cover

It’s been a terrific year for 8th Wonder Press, and we’d like to thank everyone who’s supported us in 2014.  Our first book, Uncanny Adventures, has sold through almost completely and the response to our current volume, Science vs Mad Science, has been outstanding.  We have some exciting things in the works for 2015 and can’t wait to show you what they are.

As a thank you, starting Friday (11/28/2014) through the end of the year, we’re listing BOTH volumes for sale at $9.99.  Now you can get almost 400 pages of terrific comics for under $20!  That includes stories by Mister V, Andrez Bergen, Jay Sternitzky, Mateo Cantu, Whit Taylor, Jeremy Shepherd, Nick Nall, Nico Izambard, and more!  (Oh yeah, and those sweet covers by Ethan Nicolle and Ryan Dunlavey that we wrapped the books up in!)
