Publisher’s Blurb:
I’ve recently published my first comic book, I’ve released this book and a series of limited edition prints in an attempt to raise some funding so I can work on completing my graphic novel.

Reviewer’s Comments:
Comic Book Project is an intense action packed, plot driven book that fans will definitely enjoy.

The story is from first time comic book writer and artist Jon-Paul Smith and he does an excellent job of keeping readers involved in the story both script wise and visually. The plot’s premise has the main character Libby going on a journey to avenger her father as well as deal out ass kicking revenge to the people responsible along the way.

I also appreciate that Smith’s main character is a strong character who also happens to be a woman and that is what the comic book industry needs more of.

The art is flawless and I love the gray scale that Smith uses. The action is seamless and the robot suit that Libby uses reminds me a little bit of both the first classic Iron Man suit that Tony Stark built as well as Juggernaut’s helmet. It’s just that awesome.

Overall this book is off to a great start and has a lot of promise. I look forward to to the completed graphic novel. But until that arrives, Comic Book Project #0 is worth reading and re-reading!

The Stereotypical Freaks

Rating: 5/5
Publisher Name: Animal Media Group
Writer: Howard Shapiro
Pencils: Joe Pekar
Number of Pages: 140
Price: 11.95
Color: Color
Safety Content Label: T+ TEENS AND UP – Appropriate for most readers 13 and up, parents are advised that they might want to read before or with younger children.

Publisher’s Blurb:
Four disparate high school seniors come together to compete in their school’s battle of the bands. Sharing a love for playing rock and roll, the members name the band “The Stereotypical Freaks” because they feel stereotyped by their classmates – smart kid, geek, star athlete and quiet weirdo… when in fact they know they are much more than those labels that have been placed on them. When one member reveals life altering news, winning the competition takes on more of a meaning to each member. Scared and angry, upset and yet still with a lot of resolve they set out to win one for the good guys… will they?

Reviewer’s Comments:
Friendship, lost,the social issues of high school, and music all come together to create an amazing story called The Stereotypical Freaks.

The graphic novel follows four teenaged boys Dan, Mark, Jacoby and Tom-who represent the many clicks of the social spectrum. Through their love of music-and for their own personal reasons-they come together and form a band in order to participate in the battle of the bands.

As each member of the band goes through challenges and tragedies they grow and become stronger people for it. It’s as though they started out as children and are now on the cusp of adulthood due to the things that they’ve been through. They’re also more prepared for what future challenges that will come.

Shapiro’s writing is excellent. This is a story that will tug at the heart strings of readers. Pekar’s art is also wonderful as it is in perfect tune with Shapiro’s storytelling.

Overall, this is a wonderful story. This is one of the reasons why 2012 is the year of the indie creator. Go and get this graphic novel. It’s not available until November 14th. You can preorder the book on Amazon.

These past few months have had the Hounds on the run! Between travel, extremely exciting news, and just awesomeness, Hound Comics is making it’s way very quickly to many bigger things!

First and foremost, Hound has made alliances with some very well known companies throughout different markets. You already know about Copic Markers and Autodesk, and there has been the talk of Dirty…and now we are proud to announce our partnerships with Eastsport Backpacks, Dirty, and Bulky Boy!

We have finally officially announced Hound Entertainment working together with Eastsport on different licensing deals! Soon you will be seeing Borderhounds on backpacks across the country and the world! Eastsport is on of the top selling backpack companies of the world, and this news can only be accompanied by something equally as awesome. With this partnership also brings Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal into the picture. We will be releasing a signature guitar case, actually it will be “the ultimate guitar case”, according to Bumblefoot.

Also on the side of Eastsport, we are running a contest with them where can win a one of a kind illustrated backpack from one of our artists! The first round belongs to Mina Sanwald. Go signup for free! Email and name, simple as that, just go to Http:// and sign up! You only have a few days left for this round!!

Another announcement on the agenda was concerning the licensing of the Brimstone and Luscious characters for the Dirty Brand Organic Seasoning by Chef Ian Russo of Discover Dirty, LLC. The Borderhound branded seasoning will be distributed throughout Supermarkets across the nation later this year!!

On the night that we announced these two partnerships, we also had some really cool news and raised spirits from Jack Daniels! We revealed three new official recipe drinks compliments of the good people at the Jack Daniels Honey distillery who created personalized drinks for Brimstone (The Brimstone Red), Bumblefoot (The Bumbleshot) and Luscious (The Purple Boa).

Score! That’s about it from me now. See the full release on from our party HERE, and also, check out a book we were written about in that’s hitting top selling lists all over!! Worth Every Penny (press release)
