Catching Up With You All

We’ve made it through another campaign, successfully funding the Great Cyclopian #6! Thank you to all our supporters for coming through once again! With issue seven right around the corner, we will be making some huge improvements to the way we run the next campaign, the stretch goals we offer, and with a little luck, the number of books actually put into the hands of readers everywhere!

We anticipate this campaign finding for a longer of period of time which is giving us the unique opportunity to produce and offer our first ‘ash can’ comic. Stay tuned for more information on that!

Comic Book Fest! Presented by The Athol Library and Hero Shack Press!

Saturday, October 14th, was a pleasant fall day for the second annual Comic Book Fest! Families and fans alike came out to meet the seventeen Independent artists from a vairey of genres.

A new addition this year was the Cos-Play Contest! We had a great turnout by cosplayers ranging in ages 3-adult. The three age categories produced 1st, 2nd and 3rd place all were awarded a prize. The Cos-Play contest brought a very cool element to the fest.

We held creator panels again this year. Our guests did a great job answering questions. This is one part of the fest we tend to improve on for next year.

From inddependent comic book creators, authors, illustrators and artists, the fest was a huge success. We are already in the works of planning next years third annual Comic Book Fest!

A huge thank you to The Athol Public Library and a special thanks to Emily and Robin, and of course to all of the people who took part – we could not do this without all of you!
