AiT/Planet lar Goes Back To Press on “Demo,” “Jax Epoch” and “Electric Girl”

Official Press Release

SAN FRANCISCO (May 26, 2006) AiT/Planet Lar publisher Larry Young
announced today that AiT’s gone back to press on three books: DEMO, JAX
EPOCH AND THE QUICKEN FORBIDDEN, and ELECTRIC GIRL VOLUME ONE.

“Announcing you’re going back to press on best-selling books seems a
little precious for a publisher, to me,” Young said. “I mean, you set your
print runs, you market your creators, and you sell your books. That’s our
job. When writers write a rollickin’ tale, and artists draw compelling
visuals, we’d be slacking if we didn’t thrash the bushes to make sure you
know about their work. And thrash we do. But it’s hard to keep up with the
demand for these three books, and I want folks to know. Everyone did their
job well.”

“There’s nothing better in the world than watching all of your hard work
start to pay off,” said DEMO artist Becky Cloonan, when told her project
was getting another edition to satisfy demand for more copies. “So when I
heard the DEMO trade was getting another printing, I did like five
spinkicks. No joke.”

JAX EPOCH AND THE QUICKEN FORBIDDEN is on a second printing, too. “Even
though it stars a kleptomaniac teenage sorceress who befriends talking
robots and destroys the universe, I consider the JAX EPOCH series to be my
most personal and heartfelt work!” says JAX scribe Dave Roman. ” And
certainly the most rewarding part of publishing the collections with
AiT/Planet Lar is knowing that they continue to attract new people to the
world of comics. Before I started working with Larry and Mimi, I never
would have imagined fans coming up to me at conventions, sharing their
excitement about how they discovered Jax Epoch at their local library!”

ELECTRIC GIRL is on its whopping fourth printing. “Once again, I got the
great news from Larry and Mimi that they ‘had’ to go back to press for
ELECTRIC GIRL VOLUME ONE to keep up with the demand,” said writer/artist
Mike Brennan. “It’s events like this that reminds me just why I was so
psyched when AiT/Planet Lar offered to publish the EG graphic novel series
several years ago (remember – there’s 3 of ’em, kids).” There’s a rumor
going around that Brennan is working on an all-Blammo book, which fans of
the little yellow dog from EG will be happy to hear about…

Respected blogger Sean Maher (seanmaher.blogspot.com) says, “As a reader
I’m always finding new creators to enjoy, so I appreciate that I don’t
have to go to ebay to find early work I’m just encountering in order to
pick up books that are new to me. AiT keeps stuff in print so whenever I
discover new work, I can just go to the shelf and pick it up, or order it
from my local shops.”

These three books, as well as the entire AiT line, are available at
discriminating comic shops everywhere.
