In great news, the Soska Sisters have signed on to direct the adaptation of Painkiller Jane. More news can be found at the Hollywood Reporter.
Brief new bite here as the San Diego Comic Con is taking place this week/weekend. During the event, Kickstarter will be having several panels throughout the convention. We have been recognized as not only a great success story on Kickstarter’s blog:
but they have also asked Jimmy Palmiotti to participate on one of the Kickstarter panels about projects. If you are at the convention and are there Thursday and/or Sunday, swing by the 2 Kickstarter panels Jimmy will be involved with:
Want to know how to run a successful Kickstarter campaign? Join our very own Craig Engler as he moderates a panel featuring writer/producers Jane Espenson and Brad Bell (Husbands), writer/artist/inker Jimmy Palmiotti (Denver, Forager, like a million other things) and artist John Picacio. Pick up some tips!
Thanks to the internet, self-publishing your own comic isn’t as difficult as it used to be. ComiXology co-founder John D. Roberts, Jimmy Palmiotti (who has done a few Kickstarter projects himself),Jamal Igle and Kel McDonald, will walk you through the whole process, from creation through funding, and finally, to publication.
Really awesome to have Kickstarter recognize our efforts on all our projects!
Just a quick one folks as we’re hitting a busy section of time for schedules and conventions. Up first is the massive San Diego Comic Con followed in two weeks for the Boston Comic Con (Aug. 8-10).
For any of our wonderful fans, if you are able to make the convention, please swing by either of the convention to see members of the PaperFilms team.

Make sure to swing by Frank’s table at these conventions and curse him out!
Wow folks, it has been an incredibly busy, but wonderful, summer so far. The entire team has been making the rounds with various projects and conventions to keep us all on our toes. From a Kickstarter standpoint, the team has been heads down working our way through the incredible backing list to get each and every backer of DENVER their reward tier. Lots of prints and books to sign and pack up. It is a chore but let us tell you, it is one of the most rewarding feelings!
We’re continuing that process.
June was also a very exciting month for us since we finally were able to have our collaboration with the talented Hugh Howey of WOOL released on the Kindle platform from Amazon’s Jet City Comics. This is a big deal folks. Both Justin and Jimmy are huge fans of Hugh to begin with so the project was a joy to be able to collaborate with such a talented writer. If you get the chance to purchase and enjoy, please, leave a comment on the Amazon page, it helps us a ton!
Also, make sure you are keeping up with Savage Wolverine with Frank Tieri. He returned to the title and has been itching to craft yet another great story. You can find a bit of his approach at this great CBR interview:
And if you haven’t noticed yet, we have a large assortment of Amanda Conner prints now listed on the website. Knowing that it can be difficult getting to conventions, we wanted to open up a limited amount of prints on our website for everyone to enjoy the great artwork of Amanda Conner. All prints come hand signed by Amanda and are quality prints. So head on over to the store website and check them (and other signed books and projects) out!
To help everyone out, we’ve added a 1 week coupon on our site (10% off ALL items on the store). Thanks right, everything…all…the whole kit and kaboodle. Enter Coupon Code: SUMMER and you’ll get 10% off everything (offer expires 6/22/2014). Just our way of saying “Thanks” for supporting everything we do!
The PaperFilms takeover begins with your support!
Whew….the entire PaperFilms team is heading into what should be a wonderful but busy June. All of the team members have some exciting projects racing forward so we hope you understand the gap between posts. We love interacting with all of our fans and supporters as much as possible so we hope you understand that hitting our deadlines is our #1 priority.
The bad news for us is that we’ve had to let All-Star Western and Jonah Hex ride off into the sunset. Unfortunately the numbers just didn’t add up on the book and while we’re sad to see the big guy go, Justin and Jimmy are lucky and thrilled to have the amazing Darwyn Cooke in the saddle for the last round. We couldn’t ask for a better partner to send off Jonah!
The good news is that we have some exciting projects coming up. Harley Quinn continues to be pushing sales well above expectation and the title will begin double shipping in the upcoming months. With all the wackiness that comes with the character, it certainly has been a fun trip with Harley for Amanda and Jimmy.
Also starting from DC is Star Spangled War Stories featuring GI Zombie. It is such a wacky title and Jimmy and Justin are thrilled to have Scott Hampton onboard for the art on this title. The pair did a quick interview up at Newsarama that you can check out their thoughts on the title.
In addition to the DC work by the team, in June the Amazon Kindle Jet City series WOOL will launch. The Justin and Jimmy have teamed up with Hugh Howey to provide the graphic adaptation of his great WOOL series. We were thrilled when they reached out to us about crafting the adaptation and hope to provide Hugh’s story justice. You can find out more about the title at Amazon:
Also upcoming in June (14th and 15th), if you are in the NY/Long Island area, the Eternal Con is hosting Amanda, Frank and Jimmy (along with Nelson DeCastro) for the weekend. If you are in the area and want to check them out, make sure to swing by. More information can be found at the website: http://www.eternalcon.com
Do you know that the PaperFilms team has their own Publisher section on Comixology? That’s right, head on over to see just some of our titles grouped accordingly: https://www.comixology.com/Paper-Films/comics-publisher/2047-0

Quick post here folks:

More information can be found at: www.c2e2.com

And for a little fun, Jimmy and Justin will be writing a new series for DC, Star Spangled War Stories, and the first issue will feature a glorious Darwyn Cooke cover. Here is the cover:
Finally getting back into the swing of things after some hectic weeks at both the MegaCon and the Emerald City Comic Con. Both conventions were great hosts and it was wonderful to see all the friends and fans stop by the table and booths to say “Hi” to Jimmy, Amanda and Frank. While the ECCC provided the biggest challenge to Jimmy (having the flu all weekend), all of the team still appreciated getting the chance to thank each and every person that managed to wait patiently in line! The panels, fans and conventions were outstanding!!
Now that the first wave of conventions is done (with C2E2 coming in two weeks), we had a chance to restock and add some great additional items to our online store. Knowing that some individuals aren’t able to make it to all of the conventions or track down some of our past Kickstarter projects, we’ve put a lot of items up on our online store to hopefully expand your options.
Head on over to our online store: www.paperfilms.com\shop and check out our new listings. From our past Kickstarters (Forager) to some 1st print copes of The Pro to the new Painkiller Jane series, we have some great books now available online.
We’re additionally pleased to offer some of the Amanda Conner original prints previously only available at conventions. These are high quality prints done up on 110lb. felt stock print and are perfect for framing. Amanda has hand signed each one of the prints. Be sure to check them out at the store and if there are any that you may have seen her have at conventions, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if there is any not displayed that you might be interested in. We may have some additional ones left in inventory.
Again, the benefit of going through our store is that the funds and purchases go directly to the team. This helps directly support the creators and their future projects. For those reasons, the entire PaperFilms team loves each and every one of you loyal fans.
We can’t thank you all enough!
