Well, some frustrating news. Due to a printer error, Hoax Hunters #1 has been pushed back from its original 7/4 release date to 7/11. For what it's worth, we had the issue in at Image on time, ready for our release date; and, Image had the files to the printer on time. And I say that because the last thing Steve and I want is to earn a reputation as creators whose books don't ship on time. This isn't the way we wanted to start. So, please know, this is (hopefully) just a fluke thing, and shipping will be smooth from here on out.
I suppose the good news to take away from all this is that, with the delay, issues #1 and #2 are now one week closer together!
Otherwise, we're straight on to July 11. Thanks for your patience!

We were very fortunate to have USA Today (courtesy of Brian Truitt) feature Hoax Hunters in their Entertainment section. It was a pretty insightful piece, and really brought out the best qualities of the book. Check out the full article, which includes a nine-page preview of issue #1.
