What reviewers are saying:

“The Arcane Awakening is a really great read! Awesome quality! Great concept- great art… Can’t imagine someone not wanting to pick this up!” Matt Busch Official Star Wars Artist

“The Arcane Awakening makes for an interesting introduction. Written by Dominic Riggio, The Arcane Awakening has interesting tone and details that both allow for extreme super-powered action as well as a quick development of story. The Arcane Awakening is an interesting read with excellent art and well worth checking out, especially if you’re interested in a super-powered celestial war.” BuyIndieComics.com –Dale Wilson

“Mess Bucket Comics has done something unique in recreating a biblical story overlaying what can only be described as a Tarantino-style explosion of violence, mayhem, and overt raucous behavior. It is a brief and absorbing jaunt that is over so quickly that you are left wondering: What the hell just happened? I imagine we will be seeing more of The Arcane Awakening very soon.” Empirical Magazine- Dan O’Brien.

Surrounded by death his entire life, THANIEL is a high-school dropout with a very troubled path that only gets more complex when he discovers that his father is the Grim Reaper himself, Death. Written and created by Omar Spahi (XENOGPLYPHS) with art by Terry Huddleston, THANIEL launches in April with its first two issues of a four issue mini-series, each issue priced at $3.99. Both issues will be available at your local comic shop and online at www.ossmcomics.com, April 9th (issue 1) and April 23rd (issue 2).

A cross between “Boys N The Hood” and “Dead Like Me,” THANIEL blends together different genres that don’t often crossover. Having grown up on the wrong side of the tracks, THANIEL has been surrounded by loss. He’s lost close friends and family, particularly his own mother, who was taken far before her time. After her passing, THANIEL comes face to face with his destiny as energy begins to manifest within him. Discovering that this energy is cosmically linked to death, THANIEL tries to aim his new power at evil people in his city, trying to bring some good to the world. These acts of his bring the attention of another being tied to the cosmos, Death, the Grim Reaper, who claims to be THANIEL’S father, with a very dark plan for his son.

“Thaniel’s one of those characters I sadly don’t see enough of in comics,” Huddleston explains about the title character. “He’s proactive, street smart, and visually very interesting to draw. I’m very excited to be a part of this new project.”

“It’s been a real pleasure collaborating with Terry on this book, bringing to life, and death, a really unique character,” Spahi says excitedly. “We’re aiming to create a comic book series that Terry and I have always wanted to read, and I think we did just that. It’s hard work. Hopefully people enjoy it.”

PRAISE FOR THANIEL

“Sharp, stylized, and fun!” -Brian Buccellato (THE FLASH, DETECTIVE COMICS)

“Great story with beautiful art! 5 out of 5 pocket protectors!” -Nerd Nation Radio

“Quite honestly one of the best books to read while at gunpoint.” -Luke Anthony, The Outhousers

BLEEDING COOL recently did a great piece on the upcoming series, showing off artwork from the first issue, a sneak peek at the cover to the upcoming third issue, and a nice bio on the book’s main characters.

Robert Simon Siegel announces the launch of the Thieves of Eden graphic novel at http://www.thievesofeden.com.

THIEVES of EDEN is a quantum thriller to SAVE REALITY! This high concept story exploded into comic life when artist Chris Hopkins met SCI-FI writer Robert Simon Siegel. Issue #1 is now available at the website, where readers can also see a free teaser and subscribe to this exciting new series.

With eye-popping art, the story unveils a “who done it mystery” that connects new sciences like bio-physics (how human energy fields operate as cellphones) and rare knowledge from Siegel’s personal trainings with authentic Native Medicine Men, Chinese Qigong (Energy) Masters and other amazing lineage holders of wisdom traditions.

“My goal” Siegel says, “is to usher in genuine wisdom to illuminate the treasures of different cultures, traditions and peoples from ancient to futuristic now needed to “win” THE GAME.  We ignite with humor, outrageous art, wild story twists and beautiful characters. I want people to be curious. Is THE GAME real?”

Awareness becomes action that unites people and purpose as four characters meet and discover they are a game – THE GAME – for the very life of our planet. Their opponents, with a 6,000 year advantage, are about to trigger Earth’s end with a final environmental death clench for their game-winning move.

To quickly stop these Enemies of Life, the four must cooperate and combine rare knowledge closely guarded by elders in their respective sacred traditions. They must connect ancient wisdom puzzles with cutting-edge science to form an unusual energy device, the source of unexplained “miracles” hidden to all but an elite few throughout history.

Who blocked this knowledge and why?

THIEVES of EDEN is a QUANTUM THRILLER about REALITY. We share this reality. It’s now time to SAVE IT!

Print versions of books 1 and 2 are still available in both print and digital formats.

Innes explains “You don’t need to be a history buff or comic book fan to love my book, The Dreamer. The reason the book resonates with readers is it’s filled with romance, action and adventure that anyone can relate to. The fact that much of this actually happened is only backdrop to the story, but it makes it much richer.”

“That this beautiful work is paired to a pitch-perfect story at once epic and intimate, both serious and playful, that straddles a teenage present and our nation’s most dramatic past is a testament to a creativity that knows no bounds.” —Michael Frost Beckner, producer of Spy Games

“The best books in life are the one you’re surprised by — the ones where you see the cover and think, “Huh. This looks cool.”…and then you don’t come up for air until you’ve read all the way through to the end. That’s what happened with Lora Innes’s The Dreamer.” —Fantasy Magazine

Book 4 in the series is planned for 2016.

About The Dreamer Volume 3:

Bea Whaley’s vivid dreams about the American Revolution continue in this all-new graphic novel! In the 21st Century Bea’s friends and family begin to suspect that something is wrong, but Bea knows she cannot tell them about her dreams.

The hit series by creator Naoshi Komi will be published under the company’s SHONEN JUMP imprint, rated ‘T’ for Teens, and will carry an MSRP of $9.99 U.S. / $12.99 CAN.

It’s hate at first sight—or rather, a knee-to-the-head at first sight—when Raku Ichijo meets Chitoge Kirisaki! Unfortunately, Raku’s gangster father arranges a false love match between Raku and their rival gang leader’s daughter, who just so happens to be Chitoge! Raku’s searching for his childhood sweetheart from ten years ago, however, with a pendant around his neck as a memento…but he can’t even remember the girl’s name or face!

NISEKOI, Volumes 1-6 are also available for digital download for $6.99 (USD/CAN) each on VIZManga.com and through the VIZ MANGA App for the Apple iPad®, iPhone® and iPod® touch, Android-powered smart phones, and also for NOOK, KOBO, and KINDLE tablets and devices.

“North American manga fans got their first taste of NISEKOI when VIZ Media launched it simultaneously in our WEEKLY SHONEN JUMP digital manga magazine on the same day as the Japanese debut, and the buzz on this series has grown ever since,” says Amy Yu, Editor. “Raku and Chitoge must pretend to be in a relationship to maintain the peace between their fathers’ warring yakuza factions, but false love is easier said than done—especially once an overprotective bodyguard, a dangerous female assassin and a mysterious girl claiming to be Raku’s fiancée appear! Fans and readers won’t want to miss all the drama and action as we kick off 2014 with the print debut of this great series!”

Manga creator Naoshi Komi’s first serialized title in Japan’s Weekly Shonen Jump was the series, Double Arts. His current series, NISEKOI, is currently serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump and in North America in VIZ Media’s WEEKLY SHONEN JUMP digital manga magazine.

Nemo Publishing announced today a partnership with the Hannaford grocery chain to sell a special bundle pack of The Undersea Adventures of Capt’n Eli graphic novels in the front end racks at 75 Hannaford stores all across New England.

Capt’n Eli is the son of the infamous Captain Nemo from Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.  The Undersea Adventures of Capt’n Eli takes readers into a mesmerizing world of time travel, high-tech ships, flying mini-subs, robots, lost civilizations, and undersea empires in conflict;accompanied by Jolly Roger, a 200-year-old parrot, and the faithful seadog Barney.

The bundle pack includes Books 1 and 2 in the series for $9.99.  Each book normally retails for $9.99 so this limited time special is buy- one-get-one-free and is offered only at Hannaford supermarkets.  Book 3 in the series is expected out in 2014.  Nowhere near New England? You can order the same buy-one-get-one-free deal atwww.captneli.com.

“A good grocery store is much more then just a place to buy food,” explains Ed Crockett, president of Capt’n Eli’s Soda.  “They have become our drugstores and, based off the necessity and frequency we visit them, they are often our newsstands. Hannaford is a forward thinking family grocer and realized that bringing in the Capt’n Eli graphic novel series was a great way to do more for their customers.”

Creator Jay Piscopo notes “The 10 year old in me is thrilled. I get to give a whole new generation of kids the same experience I enjoyed as a kid!  Open a comic and escape into a world you can only imagine. It’s magical.”  Jay is the founder of Nemo Publishing and writes and illustrates The Undersea Adventures of Capt’n Eli series.

Nemo Publishing was an organic creation through the Forsley family, founders of Capt’n Eli’s Soda.  One man’s sense of adventure was so strong that a root beer was created in his memory, and that spark just wouldn’t stop. Capt’n Eli’s Root Beer became the Capt’n Eli’s line of sodas and then an entire graphic novel and toy line was developed through Nemo Publishing.  The story keeps growing right along with the company and continues the wide range of products and quality that Capt’n Eli’s Soda is known for.
