Two Zipper Comics This Year!

Well, it's been a hell of a month, and it's turning into a hell of a year as it look like this year ZIPPER will see itself published TWICE!!! Once digitally, one in paper.

Bottle Rocket Magazine, an independently published comic/fiction anthology, has given the go ahead for a Zipper 6-page short story to be published in July! While not "full-length", it's is a complete, and completely original story; something in the realm of a full-on action quickie!

Currently known only as "THE SHORT PROJECT" (definitely need a better name...), neither ja'il nor I had planned on producing another Zipper comic this year, but when the opportunity rose to actually publish in paper form, we jumped! We are hoping this will open a lot of possibilities for both fans and us, as we really believe in the comic.

More details about where to purchase Bottle Rocket Magazine when the details become available. And as the copies will be directly available from the publisher himself, it is likely that it will be easier for everyone to put their hands on.

ZIPPER: BY ANY MEANS (the digital comic) will be available online this summer (we are shooting for July), and ZIPPER: BOUNTY (tentative title for the paperbound comic) is also slated for publication in July, and should be available at your local comic book dealer -- however, we will be releasing the email address of the publisher himself (a one-man show) so as to provide him with the most opportunity to make as much cash on the deal as he is paying for it himself. =)

We will be releasing info on wheres and whens when we have more definite dates (which we are happy to say, ARE approaching).

Thanks for all the support!

I had my own artist already. He is working on the original ZIPPER: By Any Means script as I write this. I asked him to take a break from the original script to do the ZIPPER: Bounty for Bottle Rocket (which we submitted to and then were picked up by).
