Three New Ongoing Series Added To TX
Toronto, Canada: Critically-acclaimed webcomics collective TX Comics is proud to welcome three brand new creator-owned series officially debut today on Wednesday, September 9th 2009: Aardehn by Eric Vedder, Streta by Eric Kim and ButterNutSquash by Rob Coughler and Ramón Pérez!
These new series join an already star-studded lineup on TX Comics, home to such works as the Eisner Award-nominated The Abominable Charles Christopher by Karl Kerschl (artist/writer of The Flash in DC Comics’ Wednesday Comics and Teen Titans Year One), Sin Titulo by Eisner- and Shuster-Award nominee Cameron Stewart (artist of Catwoman, Seaguy and The Other Side), and Kukuburi by Ramón Pérez.
Aardehn, written and drawn by Eric Vedder, is a sprawling epic set in a magical world where fantasy and science collide, and prophecies of old threaten to bring about its end. Vedder is an accomplished artist whose credits include Deadpool and Fantastic Four for Marvel Comics, Street Fighter, and various video game concept illustration.
Streta, written and drawn by Eric Kim, is a science-fiction action-comedy about an ordinary guy who has to confront intergalactic bounty hunters, space pirates, and the cosmic ninjas, all while trying to win over the girl of his dreams. Kim has previously illustrated the original graphic novel series Love As A Foreign Language for Oni Press, and his forthcoming book Billy Smoke is in development as a major motion picture starring Matthew Fox.
ButterNutSquash, co-written by Ramón Pérez and Rob Coughler with art by Perez, is the long-running and popular semi-autobiographical comedy about a group of friends entrenched in their own self-deluded world in pursuit of the next great scheme, next great girl or just the next great cup of coffee. Pérez is known to regular TX readers as the writer/artist of Kukuburi, whose credits also include Star Wars, Resistance: Fall of Man, Justice Society of America, and the forthcoming true-crime graphic novel Green River Killer.
TX Comics is a collective of professional illustrators and cartoonists who are united by their desire to produce top-flight comics. Recognizing the potential of the internet to be a primary source of art and entertainment, and motivated by their interest in producing exciting, personal work free from commercial and editorial constraint, the artists of TX have all worked to create some of the highest-quality comics yet seen on the web.
