"Making sure that back issues are available for readers is always kind of a struggle for small and indie comic book publishers," said ARTESIA creator and ASP Publisher Mark Smylie. "We kept hearing from readers that issues of our books were sold out at their local retailer, or that a reader bought the second issue of one of our books, loved it, but couldn't find the first, or read a terrific review, but couldn't find it at their local comic shop. We of course prefer everyone check with their LCS first, but IPR and DriveThruComics offer two terrific alternatives for readers to get their hands on ASP books."

Mark Smylie founded Archaia Studios Press (ASP) in 2002 as a new home for his epic fantasy comic book, Artesia (first published by Sirius Entertainment). Artesia, winner of ForeWord Magazine's Best Graphic Novel of 2003, and its sequels -- Artesia Afield and Artesia Afire -- gave ASP its foundation. Artesia: Adventures in The Known World, a roleplaying game written by Mark, expanded ASP into the world of gaming; the game won the Origins Award for Role-Playing Game of 2005. Now Mark and publishing partner Aki Liao have expanded ASP to include a line of idiosyncratic and creator-driven comic books and graphic novels in the fantasy, science fiction, and horror genres, as well as translations of several of Europe's best titles.
