Yep, after a year of being a backup, some time in between (putting the book together, finding a new artist, soliciting, promoting, writing the new arc, etc.) issue #0 is hitting the stands tomorrow. Tomorrow! Steve, JM, Axel, and I are all really excited and can't wait to hear what everyone thinks. So far the reviews and feedback have been very, very positive and we hope to see that trend continue.
We've said it before, but we'll say it again: thank you to all the retailers who have ordered and supported the book, the fans who have been talking it up, and the media who have played an integral role it getting the word out.

The Hoax Hunters creative team is happy where we're at on all counts, and that wouldn't be possible without all the help we've gotten along the way.
Anyway, I'll put the award acceptance speech away for another day. Point being: we have gratitude.

Starburst "recommends" issue zero, saying "if you’re looking for a comic that does for paranormal research what Hack/Slash did for horror then Hoax Hunters
is going to be the series for you. There’s enough potential in the TV

creativity to breathe life into a lot of existing urban legends and
