Official Press Release
HAVERHILL, MA, February 6, 2003 - For over a year now, Digital Webbing has put a physical presence to its "talent engine" nickname with the Digital Webbing Press publishing line of comics. Starting out with just a single black and white anthology book, Digital Webbing Press now helps publish multiple creator-owned titles, and has plans for a lot more fun stuff in 2003. With four titles solicited in Previews for April, it'll be a milestone month for Digital Webbing Press where readers can get a glimpse at the world behind an upcoming toy line, see a variety sampler of comic book stories from hard-working talent, and see what makes a gingerbread man and a blue-haired high school girl so popular.
