Wow! I can't believe that it's almost been a year since we started uploading Utopiates Vol. 1. It's been a long ride. From it's inception in 2006, first print run in black and white in 2007 by Bloodfire Studios, regaining the rights in 2011 and colorizing it for new audiences, Utopiates has traveled a long road in order to get here today.
Thank you all again so much for all of your support. Josh and I really appreciate you sticking with us through this past year. Utopiates is going on a bit of a hiatus for now. But don't worry, more stories are in the works so keep watching either this website or 01 Publishing for more information as well as convention schedules for where you can see us in person.
In the mean time, if you enjoyed what you read, please visit Amazon.com and leave a review. We would really appreciate it.
As well, if you would like to purchase the graphic novel, you can do so from us directly (and we will sign it for you), or from Amazon.com.
And last, but not least, we will be at APE in San Francisco this next October. We will be at the 01Publishing table #541. So make plans to come and see us if you are in the area.
Thank you all again!
And that, my friends, is the last page. I can't believe that it's been almost a year since we started this. Thank you all for your support. Josh and I do have plans to do a Utopiates Vo. 2 in the future so make sure you check back either here or 01publishing.com for more information.
Don't forget to visit us at APE in San Francisco this year. We will be at the 01Publishing table #541. So make plans to come and see us if you are in the area.
And please support us by either purchasing the graphic novel of what you've just read or leaving a review at Amazon.com. We would really appreciate it.
Thank you all again.
Lots of stuff to report today.
First, we met our 100 "likes" goal on Facebook! Thank you all so much. As promised, one fan will be picked at random from this list of 100 to receive a Utopiates sticker. Thank you all!
Second, I would like to ask a favor of all of you. Even if you don't plan to pick up the graphic novel, can you leave a review on the Amazon.com page of this book. It would help us a lot.
Next, we just got our table assignment for APE in October! We'll be at the 01Publishing table #541. So make plans to come and see us if you are in the area.
Thank you all again for your support.
As of the writing of this post, there are only FIVE copies of Utopiates left on Amazon.com!!! Only 5! So, if you are planning on picking up a copy of book I ask that you order it from Amazon.com this week. My goal is to see Utopiates sell out in the first week.
For those of you who have ordered your copy from Amazon, thank you very very much for your support.
I do have a request for all of you who have been enjoying this web comic, regardless of if you plan to pick the book up or not, could you leave a review on Amazon and click the "like" button? I would really appreciate it.
For those of you who use DCBService.com to purchase your comics, Utopiates is available there too this month for only $8.99.
In other news, we just got confirmation of our table at APE in Oct. If you go to the APE website you can find us under 01Publishing in the exhibitors' section. I'll post more information as it comes.
OMG!! As of the moment I am writing this entry, there are only 9 copies left of Utopiates in stock at Amazon!! That is wonderful!! Everybody, if you haven't ordered your copy yet (unless you want to get it from us directly) please go order Utopiates today. http://www.amazon.com/Utopiates-Josh-Finney/dp/0983923000/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1345143491&sr=8-1&keywords=utopiates I'd love to see it sold out before the end of the week.
Thank you all again for all of your support.
Want to know how you can get your hands on the Utopiates graphic novel?
There are three easy places to do it!
3. HERE on this site. And if you order from us directly, Josh and I will sign it for you.
The books are here!!!! Aren't they beautiful?
If you would like to order one you have two ways you can do it. Amazon.com will be carrying the books but they won't be available till the 21st.
OR, you can order your copy direct from us. I've updated the shopping card with the new book. We will even sign it for you.
Thank you all for following us and staying with us for the past year. And even though the book is available we'll still be updating here on the site so stay with us.
As of 8:30am pacific time the graphic novels for Utopiates have been sitting in customs for over a week. Josh and I are chomping at the bit to get them. Keep your fingers crossed that they will be released today. I'll post pictures if they are.
:sigh: our books are still not out of customs. Tomorrow will make it a full week since they landed in the US. Keep your fingers crossed that we will get them then.
Many of you may not know that Utopiates writer, co-artist, and creator was a victim of a random act of violence. Josh was shot in broad daylight when he was 19yrs old. He has written about his experience before, and he has done so again for Comic Related because of what happened in Aurora. http://comicrelated.com/news/17193/trauma
