Free Comic Book Day!

FCBD is coming, and Steve and I are doing stuff! Well, one thing, but to us it's a lot. We'll be traveling to the welcoming state of Michigan for a signing at Comics & More from noon to five, with Hoax Hunters #0 (the sold out Hoax Hunters #0) in tow. So if you're in the Madison Heights area, drop by and get your copy!

Issue #1 Cover!

Hopefully, you've all heard the announcement that Hoax Hunters is ongoing starting July 5. Steve, Axel, Jim, and I are all really excited!

So, you all know the drill. Please--please--be sure to tell your retailer you would like a copy of issue #1 and have him/her stock the shelves. It makes all the difference in the world, believe me. If you need it, the order code is MAY120521.

Anyway, the main purpose of this entry is to show off Tim Seeley's super amazing cover. It's such a clever design, and no one does sexy women like Tim. And, of course, what would a Hoax Hunters cover be without Murder! Steve and I love the juxtaposition of covers, between issue #0 and now issue #1. Our goal is to build a collection of wide-ranging covers from all kinds of artists. We have a lot of great people lined up for future issues and can't wait to show them off.

Stay tuned for more issue #1 previews, coming soon!

Ongoing Annoucement!

After some time beating around the bush, we can at last share the great news: Hoax Hunters is a full-fledged ongoing series with Image Comics. Starting July 5, we'll be a monthly series, with Axel Medellin taking over art duties. Everyone behind the book is thrilled, to say the least.

IGN has all the details.

Also, here's a look at what critics and pros have had to say about the book:

Cool Art!

I came across this piece of art via Hoax Hunters fan Craig McDaniel. Cory was lucky enough to run into Supreme artist (and very cool guy) Cory Hamscher and commissioned him for a Murder sketch. Here's what Cory came up with, seen below. Pretty amazing, if you ask me!

Hoax Hunters Meets the Press, Part Three

Here's something we're mighty proud of: Steve's issue #0 was named one of the best covers of the month by Comics Alliance!

The Weekly Crisis also deemed Steve's cover as one of their covers of the week.

Michael sat down with the good folks Dragon's Lair Comics for their series of creator podcasts.

My Comic Network says Hoax Hunters has "one of the most clever concepts I've seen in a comic in a long time" and it's "one series I wouldn't dare miss out on."

In a word, "brilliant." That's what Comic Book Bin thinks of Hoax Hunters. 

Biff Bam Pop! named Hoax Hunters it's Wednesday Run selection!

Also, Biff Bam Pop! conducted an in-depth interview with Steve, JM, and me. I think it's a good one.

iFanboy had some kind words for issue #0, calling the story "excellent."

Gamma Squad calls issue #0 a "must read!"

"A crazy, crazy comic." That's what Comics Vanguard calls issue #0.

IGN says Hoax Hunters is a "pretty damn fun book."
