Ladies and Gentlemen - The Dead Tree Version

Yes, folks, I'm delighted to announce that the debut story arc of Red Panda comics, which debuted digitally to great acclaim from Monkeybrain Comics, is getting a print edition from IDW Publishing! (EDIT: The release date to Comic Shops is Feb 15th, so pre-ordering through your local comic shop may get this baby in your hands even sooner!)

HOWEVER, it seems to be turning up all over the place for pre-order through "regular" bookstores, and there are some awesome pre-order deals that I thought I would pass along.

 Oh, and did I mention that Dean is working his fingers to the bone rendering this story in an awesome Golden-Age inspired Color scheme that is absolutely blowing my mind? Because he is. Sneak peeks on that as we get closer to the day!

In the meantime, here are a whole bunch of links to Pre-Order the book and lock down an awesome price:

Are you in America? History suggests most of you are... here are a pair of links for you:

Pre-Order From AMAZON


 Are you in Canada, like your ever-lovin' scribe here?


Are you in the UK, and sick of paying heavy shipping for your Red Panda swag?

Pre-Order From AMAZON-UK

Do you live in far-off Australia? Some of you do, and I love you for it.


Or (Reader Suggestion!) Pre-Order From BOOK DEPOSITORY

Or if you'd rather wait and support your local cool comic shop, I'm thrilled with that too... hopefully if they order one for you, they'll order another for the racks! I'll update you when the Feb soliciations come out from IDW and your local comics retailer is likely to know what you're talking about.

In the meantime, thank you all for your support of this project and for helping to make this beautiful book a (soon to be) reality!

Canada Day Love!

In what has become my favorite Canada Day tradition, SFF Audio has reviewed the latest season of The Red Panda Adventures and awarded us another "Audio Essential" rating!

The review itself is too blush-inducing to be quoted at length here, suffice to say, you know you're doing all right when a review of your work is tagged with: "Tags: adventure, aliens, androids, astral projection, Berlin, comics, crime, dinosaurs, espionage, fantasy, forgery, France, Germany, identity, magic, mystery, Nazi, romance, superheroes, toronto, war, WWII, zombies" Honestly, add "free roast beef" to that list and you've got yourself a party!

A word of warning: some might complain of mild spoliers in the final paragraph. I don't really agree, but if you haven't heard next months episode yet, you might feel that way.... so if you haven't heard epiosde 84 yet, maybe skip that last bit, just so as to not angry up the blood .
