I wrote an essay about spending the first half of my summer at a prestigious artists' colony. Please read and enjoy.

11:21am: Pick of the Brown Bag reviews THE FOX #1
This is the first review to cite an old TV show that I loved and inspired my vision of THE FOX:

"The new incarnation of the Fox is a family man and a photojournalist. He hunts criminals to get the byline, but he is an honest champion. Although he exploits his sobriquet to put meat on the table, he also duels world threats, things that cannot be written up so easily. In that respect, he parallels Kolchak: The Night Stalker."

11:44am: Hang Dai Editions launches

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Benton, Haspiel and Kushner launch HANG DAI Editions.

HANG DAI Editions was founded in Brooklyn, NY by Gregory Benton, Dean Haspiel, and Seth Kushner over their mutual dedication to comix art. The imprint focuses on limited edition comix, graphic novels, and art books, with an emphasis on personal interaction at events, conventions, and signings.

The three principals each have long histories with traditional publishing venues and have now decided to take on the challenge of publishing independently, under the HANG DAI Editions imprint, in order to retain full ownership and control over select personal creations.

The HANG DAI Editions line will debut at Comic Arts Brooklyn on November 9, 2013 with three limited edition comic books. Benton unveils his man vs. nature tale, FORCE OF NATURE, Haspiel brings forth his one-man anthology, PSYCHOTRONIC COMIX, and Kushner collects three shorts from his autobio web-series in SCHMUCK COMIX.

The three New York City based creators, who share a studio in Gowanus, Brooklyn, plan to evolve the line into self-financed and crowd funded hardcover books, and are actively seeking distributors with which to partner.

HANG DAI Editions – creator owned, independently-produced signature works.
