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.
