Hey Kids! Free Comics!

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.)




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!

8thWonderPress_Logo_4c - 50percentAfter the successful debut of the UNCANNY ADVENTURES anthology, 8th Wonder Press is now officially accepting submissions for our second volume!  The new collection will be released in May 2014 in time for the summer convention season!  Our dual theme for this year is SCIENCE and MAD SCIENCE.

Those are solid, all-purpose suggestions for pitching to anyone, but now we’ve now added a new page for How To Pitch Your Comic to 8th Wonder Press!  It’s particularly important because
