Hope there is magic for you this weekend!

With Soulfire V3 #6 coming out Jan 18th we were reminiscing about Volume 1 and thought that this would be an appropriate image to ring in the New Year.  We appreciate you being our fans and look forward to sharing a remarkable year with some amazing talent!  Have a safe weekend!

Greg Pak Mints!


Greg Pak, writer of Dead Man's Run, sent the Aspen Studios some delicious mints for the Holiday season.  They are so delicious whenever we print we eat one.  It's going to be like Pavlov's dog when we run out...we'll hit 'print' and taste the mint in our mouths...yum.  Thank you Greg!

Almost ready for Santa

dreaming of sugar plum fairies

Someone had discarded perfectly good Christmas tree branches in our office building!  We seized the moment to not be wasteful and added said branches to our already decorated comic rack.  The office is starting to smell delicious.  If only Peter Steigerwald would come to work dressed as Santa...that would be a Christmas miracle!
