You know what's better than getting new comics on Wednesday? Getting comics that won't be out for another two weeks on Thursday!
Today, we got advances for the first issue of Ken Garing's Planetoid, and I could not be more stoked. A mutual friend of Ken's and mine had turned me on to the book, noting that the first issue was available digitally, but that Ken was looking for a publisher to do the print version. Ken and I exchanged a few emails that afternoon, and bam! we were in business.
It's always thrilling to publish someone like Ken. Planetoid is his first comics work, and I put it in the same league as debuts by Jonathan Hickman and Nate Simpson. Ken does everything – he wrote it, he drew it, he colored it, he lettered it – and whenever I come across someone like that who is just starting out, it's just kind of amazing. And he's just going to get better!
