Here's your update:
Hi this is Mark Smith writing you to give you an update for Amazing Joy Buzzards and everything Hipp and Smith for the Spring and the Summer. This July 2008 will feature an all new Original Graphic Novel for the Amazing Joy Buzzards titled MONSTER LOVE.
Also being reprinted are The Amazing Joy Buzzards Volumes 1 & 2 in one Volume titled: HERE COME THE SPIDERS. This volume is only the continuity issues of Amazing Joy Buzzards with none of the guest material, so the story reads straight through all the way, and leads into the next volume MONSTER LOVE. This is the Joy Buzzards remastered edition which will be out in May at 300 pages. The new volume is printed in the Sin City Digest format.
The follow up to Monster Love and the third Volume of Amazing Joy Buzzards is planned for July of 2009 and titled Strohmâ€™s pit.
GYAKUSHU! VOL. 2: This February will show the release of Gyakushu Vol. 2 from Dan Hipp which is printed by Tokyopop. Make sure you pick up Volumes 1 and 2 of this series and the 3rd Volume will be out in February of 2009. You can read all about it on Dan's Blog: http://www.mrhipp.blogspot.com/

K.A.P!: KILL ALL PARENTS!
In May I have a 34 page one shot coming out with Marcelo Dichiara who's the artist on Marvel's "Iron Man Power Pack", the book is called " K.A.P!: KILL ALL PARENTS! Kill All Parents is the story of an authoritarian government's secret program to 'save' mankind by eliminating villains: by insuring that every child born with a super power becomes a super hero. Based on the life's work of a brilliant but demented scientist and futurist, the method is effective but fantastically cruel, unnatural, and ultimately deeply flawed. We follow the last of the strong heroes, the remaining brave, who fight for not only their future and the lives of their families, but that of all mankind.
