'Electric Girl' goes to AiT/PlanetLar

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF. (April 5, 2002) Publisher Larry Young announcedtoday that his publishing house, AiT/Planet Lar, will now distributeMike Brennan's Eisner-nominated ELECTRIC GIRL.

"Brennan's been a pal of mine for a while," said Young, "and I've lovedhis work on ELECTRIC GIRL forever. With all of the uncertainty going onnow with graphic novel distribution, I'm happy to bring Mike into theAiT family. I'd hate to see ELECTRIC GIRL get lost in the shuffle. It'llmake an excellent accompaniment to COLONIA and our other books in theline."

"We have plans to release new ELECTRIC GIRL volumes like clockwork,"said AiT/Planet Lar publisher Mimi Rosenheim. "Instead of a single issueversus a straight-to-trade model, we are going to release a hybridformat; that of a 56 page square-bound book, three or four times a year.Personally, I couldn't be happier. This sort of format lets EG fans getfurther adventures of Virginia, Oogleeoog, and Blammo on a regularschedule, while giving Mike the opportunity to concentrate on doing whathe loves."

"It's always been an uphill battle publishing your own comic. The eventsof the past several days have dramatically underscored that," saidBrennan. "Meanwhile, I've watched with envy over the past couple ofyears as Larry and Mimi have enjoyed great success with AiT/Planet Lar.I look forward to seeing ELECTRIC GIRL getting the special treatmentthat they give every graphic novel that they publish."
