Earlier this week, our Editor-in-Chief Jesse Dubin checked in with the Canned Air Podcast to discuss the newly-released Uncanny Adventures: Science vs Mad Science, and wound up sitting in for the whole episode!  They discussed everything from the new Fantastic Four, Batman, and Shazam movies to Legos and the new Star Wars museum.  Check out Episode 39 through iTunes, the Android app, or grab it right now through the web! If you’ve already listened to the show, you might be interested in a few things Jesse mentioned, like:

Uncanny Adventures - Science vs Mad Science Front Cover

Dimensional Portals! Feral Children! Strange Worlds! Bioengineered Creatures!

Since the dawn of time, mankind has turned to science to make sense of the universe around us. Since about 15 minutes after that, we’ve used science to CONTROL the universe around us. This latest volume in the Uncanny Adventures series presents 19 tales pitting Science against Mad Science. Written and drawn by a laboratory’s worth of amazing indie comic creators, Science vs Mad Science will make sure you never look at science the same way again.

After a successful launch at Denver Comic Con, we are proud to announce that our latest collection, Uncanny Adventures: SCIENCE vs MAD SCIENCE, is here!

SCIENCE vs MAD SCIENCE features the return of several contributors from last year’s book, including Mister VDan ConnerWhit TaylorJay Sternitzky and Mateo Cantu, Danos PhilopoulosDino Caruso, Patrick McEvoy, and Owen Heitmann.  We’re also thrilled to have many talented new creators with us, such as Ellie FortuneRich FosterNico Izambard and Nick NallScott Schmidt, and Jeremy Shepherd and Mac Cooper.

These are all of the talents behind the new book, though.  We’ve got 18 brand new stories by 28 creators.  It’s a murderer’s row of terrific comics, all wrapped up in a brand new cover by Ryan Dunlavey, the creator behind MODOK: Reign Delay and artist of The Comic Book History of Comics and Action Philosophers.

Uncanny Adventures: SCIENCE vs MAD SCIENCE is available on Amazon and at fine comic shops everywhere.

blog_header_3With Denver Comic Con, our first show of the season, almost upon us, the excitement is high and we’re very excited to start putting our books in the hands of readers.  In anticipation of that, we want to share an interview our Editor-in-Chief did with the Reel Nerds podcast last summer at DCC.

Ryan, James, and Brad are great guys who sit down and discuss a different new movie every week, as well as games, comics, and whatever else strikes their fancy.  We’re very happy they took the time to talk with us about the show and our Uncanny Adventures anthology as we were getting it off the ground.

Check out our chat with the Reel Nerds, and if you have a blog or news site that would like to talk to us about our projects or, well, anything, feel free to email press@8thWonderPress.com.

Raconteur, cartoonist, and all-around mensch Mister V has been a big supporter of all of us here at 8th Wonder Press.  We talked to him earlier in the year about his contribution to our Uncanny Adventures anthology and he’s got a selection for the SCIENCE section of next year’s anthology that will blow your mind.  (He also did the cover art for our super-sweet “Draw Your Own Comics” book.)

 

Anyway.

 

It’s Christmas, and in a move essentially guaranteed to put him up for sainthood, he’s giving away a free minicomic from his series DNR about the time he met Santa.  Just shoot him your address (that’s right, it’s a paper comic, a real thing that requires a stamp to send, and those ain’t cheap Bucko!) and he’ll put you in the holiday spirit right quick.

 

Go to http://arborcides.blogspot.com/2013/12/let-me-give-you-free-mini-comic.html, hit him up, and enjoy some free comics!  It’s a Festivus miracle!

Uncanny Adventures Front CoverAfter a wonderful Thanksgiving here at the 8th Wonder Press orbital satellite, and stuffed full of good turkey and good wine, we’ve decided to spread the warm feelings around.  Only for tomorrow, November 29th, we’ve made Uncanny Adventures available for only $9.99!  That’s almost 25% off cover price!

Because we believe in our book so much and we know you’ll love reading 170 pages (!!!) of terrific comics as much as we do, we’re joining in on the biggest shopping day of the year and giving you the chance to sample our latest book for under 10 bucks, clams, simoleons, or smackaroos!

And you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your couch to get it delivered to your door!  With all-new cover art by Axe Cop’s Ethan Nicolle, Uncanny Adventures is stuffed full of amazing comics you’ve never seen anywhere else.

It’s been a while since we’ve checked in, but the submissions for 2014’s SCIENCE/MAD SCIENCE anthology have been pouring in, and they’re outstanding! When the finished book comes out you’ll see new work from previous contributors Jay Sternitzky and Mateo Cantu, Mister V, and Whit Taylor, as well as some terrific new talent.  The level of skill and quality in this year’s book will blow the last one away (and UNCANNY ADVENTURES is amazing)!

The submission period ends at midnight on the 30th (that’s THIS Saturday!), but the good news is there’s still time to get yours in.  Just read up on all the details at http://8thwonderpress.com/2014-anthology-science-mad-science/ and then email your pitch in pdf format to submissions@8thWonderPress.com.

For those of you in the United States, we wish you the happiest of Thanksgivings.  And to ALL of you, good luck with your submissions!
