Official Press Release
A few years ago, while at Semantink Publishing, I started a webcomic with a few friends. The comic tapped into our darkest memories of days long past when the five of us worked at a particularly popular coffee chain that shall remain nameless. The service industry had not been kind to us and we shared our feelings through the eyes of a few popular monsters. The webcomic was called The Undergrounds.
Well, Semantink turned into Keyleaf Comics and eventually the company went under. At that time the artist and various writers went their own ways. The rights to the book floated in limbo temporarily.
I have reacquired the rights. While we have no plans to reboot the series, we thought we’d collect the previous seasons for fans. The Undergrounds: Everything Exhumed collects both seasons of the series and throws in a few bonus features, all wrapped up in a delicious hardcover package.
We expect the book to be ready for delivery in May. As of today I am offering pre-orders at 20% off cover price–that’s only $19.99! These are available at my site right now. <http://jamesninness.com/store/#!/~/product/category=4045394&id=21169456>
The solicitation information follows:
