ComiXology, the comiXologist and Conventions

Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows News

Chadhiyana #1 was officially been out for a week (through Rosarium Publishing), but there’s still more to come. Late last week, the first issue of Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows was added to comiXology.com and even earned a mention on the comiXologist post-San Diego Comic-Con podcast! More, this weekend begins a three-week-straight convention tour for Chadhiyana and myself.

First, comiXology released the first issue on Wednesday last week (comixology.com/Chadhiyana-1/digital-comic/239164), just two days after the scheduled release. I was unfortunately fighting off stomach pains for much of the week, so I completely missed this until artist Corey Breen (who designed the Chadhiyana logo) pointed it out on his Facebook page. That makes three distributors for the book now (including Amazon.com and IndyPlanet.com).

What more, Corey also shared that Chadhiyana #1 was mentioned in the 449th episode of the comiXologist, Back in the Saddle Again. The comiXologist talks about new releases on comiXology.com and comic in general. Though Kara (one of the show’s hosts) pronounced the name wrong (no worries, Kara; its chah-di-yah-nuh not chat-ee-yaa-nuh), but she seemed to like the book and enjoyed the artwork all the same. For me, however, I thought it was great that she thought the book looked interesting enough to check it out and at least give it a mention on their podcast!

If you want to listen to the episode, you can find it on iTunes (itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/comixologist-presented-by/id266108324). Again look for episode 449, Back in the Saddle Again. Chadhiyana is mentioned around 3 minutes into the podcast. If you don’t have iTunes, you can also listen to it on Stitcher (stitcher.com/podcast/comixologist/the-comixologist).

Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows AdLast but not least, this coming weekend I’ll be appearing in artist alley at the Garden State Comic Fest (July 25 and 26, Saturday and Sunday; gardenstatecomicfest.com) at the Mennen Arena in Morristown, New Jersey. This will be the first of three upcoming conventions this summer, all three of them back-to-back-to-back. Following GSCF, I’ll be in Boston for the Boston Comic Con (bostoncomiccon.com) and then again in the tri-state area for Inbeon Con: Summer Edition (inbeoncon.com) on Saturday, August 8th. That’s three conventions in three different states.

If you’re a fan of my work or Chadhiyana, I hope these next few weeks will offer you the opportunity to catch me at least one show–especially if you’ve purchased a print copy and want to get it signed. Otherwise, it’s going to be something of a mini-book tour for me to get the word out about the first issue of Chadhiyana.

That said, if you haven’t picked up a copy of Chadhiyana #1 yet, please do. As I keep saying (biased or not), it’s really a great book. I mean, even the comiXologist felt it worth mentioning!

Enjoy reading.

    Sim, caro Niet, obrigado pela ajuda. Ainda não desisti – embora sem recorrer a métodos como roer as canelas – de vermos o Xatoo a manifestar-se entre democratas revolucionários de todas as regiões do Médio Oriente, e entoando com o ardor que o caracteriza a palavra de ordem: Viva a República dos Conselhos Juao-Ãdrebes.Mas o caminho é longo: primeiro, ainda terei de o convencer que não é absolutamente obrigatório ser marxista para falar do PCP, da Marx e da revolução, da realidade em geral. Salut et égalité!miguel (sp)

    “People who love only once in their lives are… shallow people. What they call their loyalty, and their fidelity, I call either the lethargy of custom or their lack of imagination. Faithfulness is to the emotional life what consistency is to the life of the intellect – simply a confession of failures.” -Oscar Wilde

    Hi. I wanted to drop you a quick word to express my thanks. Ive been following your blog for a month or so and have picked up a ton of good information. I am making an attempt to run my very own weblog nonetheless I believe its too general and I need to focus on lots of smaller topics.
