Great news! TAKEDOWN has just today been approved by Comixology, the premiere app for reading digital comics on iOS and Android devices! No word yet as to when it will be available, or when/if KEEPER will be joining at the app, but this is great news for Atypical, and its readers, giving another option for YOU to read our comics! (Of course, you can STILL order direct from Atypical for PDF, CBZ *and* PRINT editions of TAKEDOWN and KEEPER!)
In the meantime, we had a GREAT C2E2 in which we SOLD OUT of KEEPER Issue 0, meaning we have to go back to press! (Of course, it IS a free download too!) TAKEDOWN snared some fans in as well, like, well… these guys:
Left is Judge Dredd writer Michael Carroll, and on the right… well…
(And if you know who the man under the helmet is, get in touch, we have something for him!!)
Last but not least, TAKEDOWN got a good review from Comics Bulletin over the weekend!:
“Geoffrey Wessel delivers a breakneck-paced 22-page epic…”
“You just don’t f**k with Officer Josiah Bledsoe.”
“If Wessel’s writing reminds me of a sort of sci-fi Judge Dredd short, [Zach] Bassett’s art style reminds me of Ian Gibson, all distorted people and weird-ass creatures from outer space who have quirky, unexpected weird elements to their design that makes the aliens feel both familiar and weird at the same time. […]… the art tells Wessel’s story well, especially in the wordless pages that help build an interesting setting for this comic.”
Check it out, then check TAKEDOWN out today!
In mere moments Atypical Comics will be setting up at C2E2 2013, table F15, with KEEPER writer Geoffrey D. Wessel + artist Jeff Simpson. We will have Issues 0, 1, and 2 of KEEPER on sale, as well as TAKEDOWN by Wessel + Zach Bassett, on sale for you.
If you can’t make it, and want these, digitally or in print, see Atypical Comics for ordering info. If you do order digitally, you may not get it til later this weekend since we’ll be otherwise occupied.
Thanks! See you there!
Bleeding Cool currently has a story about Atypical Comics, including a five page preview of Takedown, & preview of KEEPER #2!
