Happy Thanksgiving to all our fellow Americans, and happy opening of the holiday shopping season for our friends abroad. It's been awhile since we updated, and since then a few things have happened, most notably the release of Reasonably Priced Comics #4.The below cover is the one for the published issue. Last update, we posted a similar cover but production issues prevented VOYAGA from returning for the final part of the first story arc. In its place, we found two stories from the RPC Vault to take its place. The issue is outstanding and more diverse than any other issue we've published so far.To entice you to check it out, digital copies are available on DriveThruComics this weekend for only 69 cents. That's 30% off of the normal digital price of 99 cents and less than a third of the price of a print issue!
Use this link
to take advantage of the sale on the digital copy. Good until the end of Saturday. The book is also available on Graphicly
for your preferred mobile device and in print at the usual place
.And be sure to let us know what you think!

Michael Roberts has been a very supportive of RPC since our inception and he's been kind enough to review our most recent offering.The "money quote":
The anthology series Reasonably Priced Comics
continues to be on of the best looking small-press indie anthologies out there. With three issues now available to the public, RPC
has solidified itself as an anthology that delivers quality material. And, trust me, I’ve read quite a few small-press books, and consistent quality is no easy feat.Thanks for the kind words, Michael! We really appreciate it.You can read Michael's review yourself here http://mwr.me/2011/08/10/review-reasonably-priced-comics-3/
and be sure to check out Michael's web comic "Next Door"!
The first review of Reasonably Priced Comics #3 is in and it's outstanding!Geoff Arbuckle of A Comic Book Blog had this to say, among many other things:
"A couple really strong genre stories from Barrows with great art from both Ionic and Panganiban. Kidthulhu is just an endearing character that I want to see more of when he gets his own series."He gave the book an overall score of 100%! Thanks for your support, Geoff!

Hi, everybody, just a short update today.
Submissions have been closed for our new sci-fi anthology SCIENCE! We have five great stories, totaling nearly fifty pages, of science fiction that we are very pleased with. We're tentatively scheduling the book for an August release, but we'll firm that up shortly.
If you'd like to submit a short story to us, we're always looking at submissions for our regular anthology so feel free to check out the submissions page
and send us your best stuff.A new review of JACK HAMMER: POLITICAL SCIENCE #1 by a reader who just discovered us was recently published, as well. You can check out what John Lees had to say about the book for yourself by going here
. From the sound of things, though, it seems like he's a new fan! Thank you for the kind words, John and we're happy you enjoyed the book.
Quick update folks, since it's been awhile!
First, if you haven't seen it, we have prints available of Ionic's beautiful painting of Dean Kirkland (hero of VOYAGA) exploring the jungle of the 31st century that appeared on the cover of Reasonably Priced Comics #2. We've had a few people asking if we'd be offering prints so we figured we'd give the people what they want! You can find the print by following the link to our store or go directly to it here.
Next up, a sneak peak of Ionic's newest painting! The cover for Reasonably Priced Comics #3 is below! RPC#3 features the first installment of WESTERN ADDITION, Brandon Barrows's (writer of JACK HAMMER and VOYAGA) new western series with artist Leandro Paganiban (ANIMAL CONTROL: SCU, DEAD FUTURE). You'll agree he's outdone himself once again!
