Hoax Hunters Trade

On December 5, we’re releasing our first trade, and Steve and I have gone all out to make this edition truly special. While we appreciate the economic value of having a trade simply be a stripped down collection of issues, we wanted to go bigger and make this book something truly unique and special. So we gathered some never-before-scene art, rallied some talented guests, and have compiled a really nice edition—Hoax Hunters Book One: Murder, Death, and the Devil.

Here’s a look at everything included in the first trade:

 -Issues 0-5 of the critically acclaimed series

-An introduction written by Ben Hansen, host of SyFy’s Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files

-Mothman, an new short comic from artist Jeremy Tinder (this hasn’t, and won’t, appear in any Hoax Hunters single issue)

-Painted issue dividers by Steve, who also painted the trade cover, making for one cohesive visual motif; we also included all six stunning issue covers (including cover art from Tim Seeley, Joe Eisma, and more)

-The original Murder design, as well as notes on the character’s creation

-Original advertising art

And while you're here, why not check out a page from Tinder's Mothman story!

Hoax Hunters on Word Balloon, at NYCC

Steve and I had the good fortune to talk with the always insightful and entertaining John Siuntres for the Word Balloon podcast. Clink this link to listen to the entire show, which also includes some guy named Ed Brubaker.

Additionally, Steve and I will be at NYCC all weekend, tabel Q17. We'll have issue 1 - 4 of Hoax Hunters, prints, and we'll be joining forces to create the worst sketches of all time. Come say hello!
