Simone & Ajax had to take a quick trip home, as can be seen below, and are now snowbound until the snow melts in the spring. As soon as they can get back out to the ocean, they’ll get back to the final pages of their current adventure, “Hi-Seas Hijinx.” In the meantime, take some time to catch up on past pages or download some of their stories in the Free Comics section. They want to get back to adventuring as much as you do, so keep checking back.
Happy Holidays from me, Andrew Pepoy, and your pals, Simone & Ajax. Thanks for a great first year here at their new online home, and I look forward to bringing you more adventures of the dauntless duo in the new year, including a new story starting very soon.
Shameless Holiday plug time! Looking for something fun for that someone who has everything? I bet they don’t have “The Adventures of Simone & Ajax” paperback. There’s still time to get it in time for gift-giving (or yourself!). And as an added bonus for this time of year, one of the several stories it contains is the 45-page, Harvey Award-nominated “A Christmas Caper.” Great to read by the fireplace on a snowy night! Available from Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, comics shops, and other booksellers.
Here’s a video interview I did, recorded in October at the New York Comic-Con. While it deals more with my work at Archie Comics, I hope you’ll still enjoy it:
The launch of the new Simone & Ajax webstrip has been getting some coverage from the comics press lately on sites sych as Bleeding Cool, The Beat, and more. Two sites have run longer pieces on our daring duo: First Comics News has run an interview with me about Simone & Ajax that you can read here, while The Lottery Party has run a nice review of the site here. Please check out these stories if you want to read a bit more about Simone & Ajax. Thanks for visiting and see you Tuesday for a new instalment.
UPDATE: Here’s another great review for “The Adventures of Simone & Ajax,” this time for the book collection. Being compared to Carl Barks’ Uncle Scrooge comics, Archie Comics, and TinTin is always a wonderful feeling. Click here to read.
