Lots of news and reviews around the web for us so we’re glad you stopped by and hopefully we’ll do a good job about rounding up some of the news and reviews in one spot for you.
First, our one shot called The Deep Sea came out yesterday from Dark Horse Comics. It was a fun serial that we were able to do within Dark Horse Presents but we had the option to collected it in one book. Below are some of the reviews of the book. In the end, we are happy to be able to tell a fun, off beat story.
Also out yesterday was All-Star Western #20, in which we continue the adventures of Jonah Hex with his new sheriff helper, Booster Gold. This has been a fun arc to write and one we know snuck up on people so we hope that is a good thing. We have been having a blast using Booster into the storyline and hopefully people enjoy seeing him back in the mix.
Finally, our WEAPON OF GOD Kickstarter is still going strong with the halfway point now here. With your support, we have already eclipsed our goal and continue to drive more towards new stretch goals for the project. We can’t tell you how happy that makes us and if you haven’t yet supported, there is still time to jump on board.
Lastly, just another quick reminder and plug that we are continue to roll out new digital downloads as we can get them on our website. Anyone who has purchased items, we can’t thank you enough. For those of you who haven’t, we hope you consider this option. The books come directly from us and the funds go directly to our creators. This helps us work on books like WEAPON OF GOD or Sex & Violence: Vol. 1. So take some time and give us a try, you might be able to find a book you hadn’t tried before.
Have a wonderful week folks and really, thanks for all your support!
Whew…what a busy week we’ve got going.
First up, Jimmy and Amanda will be heading to the great state of TX for the Dallas Comic Con on May 17th to 19th. Both Jimmy and Amanda will be on hand to sign your stuff, have limited items for purchase and most importantly, thank you for all your support! Jimmy will also be participating in a Painkiller Jane panel with the wonderful Kristanna Loken.
Next, our newest Kickstarter, WEAPON OF GOD, is still available for support. Even though we have hit our target number, we are still pushing forward and offering additional stretch rewards for anyone who is contributing. So if you haven’t yet joined in the party, make sure you get in. If you’ve done it in the past, you know that we take extra pride in giving our supporters the best we can on every product.
Finally, we’ve added some additional titles in our Digital Downloads section of our website for purchase. You can now get the first four issues of Creator Owned Heroes directly from us. That is the first story arc for both American Muscle and Triggergirl 6. Again, the support has been great and the money goes directly to the creators and towards new projects, like WEAPON OF GOD.
We can’t thank you enough for your continued support. You all rock!
Great news, we have launched our newest Kickstarter project: WEAPON OF GOD. This is a 50 page, Adult Graphic Novel structured as a Print On Demand, available now only via Kickstarter pledges.
This is where you can not only pledge to support, you can also help us by spreading the word for the project around the internet. If you can link this project in any place like Facebook, Twitter, blogs…anywhere you can think to post, we’ll love you for it.
These last Kickstarter projects have let us take some chances, tell some different stories, find some new audiences, and offer some unique rewards during these campaigns. Check it out, some of the reward structures are limited edition prints, scripts, original art by both Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner. Most of you know that Amanda has limited her output for sketches at conventions and shows. This is a great alternative to get some art as well as support the project.
We hope you are able to support the campaign as many of you have in the past. We’ve always said, we have the best fans in the world and you have continued to shine for us. For this project and others, we can’t thank you enough!!!!
Seeing a ton of Batwing #20 reviews from around the web come in and we can’t thank you enough for giving us the chance to tell a great story and taking a leap of faith with us on this new journey. It has been a fun ride so far and we intend on keeping up the pace for sure. Below is a small list of reviews, some good, some OK, but in the end, people are buying the product and spending the time to do a detailed/thoughtful review so we post them.
Don’t forget for those of you in the Dallas area, Jimmy and Amanda will be attending the Dallas Comic Con May 17th through May 19th. Be sure to swing by and say Hi! More info about the con can be found at:
In addition, please make sure to stop by our Digital Downloads page and support our creator owned projects for download. This money goes directly to the creators to work on the next set of projects.
Again, we can’t thank you enough for the support!
Hey everyone. Due to the events in Boston, the Boston Comic Con was cancelled and rightfully so. The city has other things to focus on and they have their priorities. Unfortunately we didn’t get the chance to visit and wish all our Boston area fans thanks for their support but we will certainly be back.
This coming weekend, Jimmy and Amanda will be attending the Chicago C2E2 convention. Any Chicago area fans, please swing by and say Hi to Jimmy and Amanda. More info can be found at:
And then in May, both Amanda and Jimmy will be attending the Dallas Comic Con on May 17 – 19th. More info can be found there at:
Finally, we’re happy to announce that we’ve rolled out another wave of our projects available for Digital Download directly from our site. We can’t tell you how happy we have been for the support to date for just our Sex & Violence: Vol. 1 digital download (for those who weren’t able to participate in our last Kickstarter. We have some of our other projects: Trailblazer, Queen Crab, Retrovirus, Back To Brooklyn and many more available for download purchase from our site. Remember 100% of the funds go directly to our creators this way, allowing us to put more money into future creator owned projects. You can find the new listings with the other products on our “Digital Downloads” page:
Finally, keep an eye peeled for our next Kickstarter project called Weapon of God. Will be a smaller Kickstarter project that will hopefully find an audience and surprise us. Here is the original cover idea and design by who else? The wonderful Amanda Conner!
Looking forward to the week and again, we can’t thank you all enough for your continued support and appreciation. You all make us go!
First and foremost, our hearts and thoughts go out to everyone in Boston and anyone affected by the tragic events in the Boston area. Such senseless acts just weigh on us. Please, take some time and donate any amount if possible to someplace like Red Cross, we’re all a big family in this world.
Meanwhile, Amanda and Jimmy will be heading to Boston this weekend (20th and 21st) for the Boston Comic Con. If you are in the area and need to take a break from the news and life for awhile, please swing by and say “Hi” to the couple. They are sure to be thrilled to see and chat with anyone that stops by. More information about the convention can be found at:
And more shameless plugging of our stuff. Next week is All-Star Western #19 featuring a time traveling guest, that’s right, Booster Gold. His appearance was a great addition to the storyline and one the gang is having a blast writing. Make sure you are grabbing this issue, it will be hard to find.
We’re also continuing to build out the website more in the coming weeks. The Digital Download section of the website (http://www.paperfilms.com/?page_id=395) is taking off and we’re thrilled to see the number of people who have been able to make a purchase and support our projects. We can’t say enough about how important that is. All the money goes directly to the creators without having to pay fees to the online providers or hosts. You’ll see all of the projects are the creator owned works so that really does just fund more projects. In the coming weeks, you’ll be seeing more digital offerings as well as some new print versions of the books. We appreciate your patience as we handle some hiccups and settings, but in the end, we do our best to make sure everyone that makes a purchase at our website is happy.
Everyone of you that supports our projects are tops in our book!
Hey folks, just a quick website update that we have started the process to roll out digital downloads via our website. These will be .pdf formatted files you will be able to download to your computer or any device.
You can swing on over to the Digital Downloads portion of our website, select the book you are interested in, and go through PayPal to complete the transaction. This will generate an automated email with a secure, one time only download link of the file.
We certainly enjoy and appreciate everyone seeking our projects out on Comixology and other applications, we never want undercut those applications and services, so you will always see the prices the same or above. However, the cool thing is that by offering this ourselves, we do not have to split the $ with Apple and other middle men and only get a % of what you pay. All the $ goes directly to us and we roll it over into new books asap. Yes, we are a small group…but everyone starts from the beginning. Some products will be exclusive to our website, such as our recently completed and shipped Kickstarter project, Sex and Violence: Vol. 1
In the coming weeks and months, we will be rolling out more versions of our projects onto the site. We hope you stay updated and keep checking back on the site as those are made available. Once again, we cannot thank you for your support for each and every one of our projects!!
Finishing up from a great visit to the WonderCon and a quick signing at Meltdown Comics and checking out the web for all the great and thoughtful news and reviews on Batwing #19. We really haven’t hit our stride until issue #20, but we are pleased with just a smattering of the reviews on issue #19.
Below is just a small sampling of the reviews:
In other news, there was a great interview done by Crave Online with Amanda (who deserves the spotlight) found at:

Finally, we’re beginning the process of compiling and packaging our latest Kickstarter effort Sex and Violence: Vol. 1 for the printed copies. It will be over 800+ packages to ship out but we’re thrilled that everyone who supported it gets their copy!
After a long but fully exciting MegaCon 2013, we are in the recovery stage of a great convention. It was incredible to see each and every person that swung by the booth to see Amanda, Justin and Jimmy. We couldn’t ask for a better set of friends and fans! Below is just a sampling of the crew, friends and stuff that we had from the convention.
If you have any additional photos from MegaCon 2013, please feel free to send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
