Swipe File: Simone & Ajax and… Sesame Street?

First, we have Simone and Ajax as detectives trying to find… the Maltese Duck:

and then we have Bert and Ernie (or some bizarre clay figures that sorta look and sound like them) as detectives trying to find… the Maltese Duck!

Coincidence, you say? Hah! Then how do you explain that the person hiring Bert and Ernie is a sheep… just like a sheep hired Simone and Ajax in the story the case files call On The Lamb (or the Case of the Felonious Fleece)?!?

But don’t take our word for it (as if you would), find out for yourself! Purchase The Adventures of Simone & Ajax, available for pre-order now at Amazon or available in this month’s Diamond catalog from IDW.

And check out the newest Simone and Ajax adventure, A Christmas Caper, serialized weekly here on ComicMix!

Webcomic News Roundup: Perry Bible Fellowship and BoaSas Go Global!

Webcomic News Roundup: Perry Bible Fellowship and BoaSas Go Global!

While preparation for San Diego Comic-Con has been keeping most webcomic creators busy these days, there’s still a lot of news popping up that has nothing to do with how many boxes of t-shirts have been shipped to the West Coast. Here are some of the highlights:

Jill-of-all-trades comics journalist Laura Hudson recently conducted a really, really spectacular interview with Perry Bible Fellowship creator Nicholas Gurewitch for Publisher’s Weekly. In the interview, Gurewitch reveals some details about a potential BBC project involving PBF:

I‘ll be adapting a couple of the strips for the pilot, and I just got the news the other day that they wanted to make it longer because they liked the 12-minute treatment I sent. They want to make it a 30-minute pilot. I’m actually working with a British television company, Endemol Entertainment. A number of people there had ordered some prints from me, and apparently someone brought them into the office. It became known amongst them that they really liked the comic, and [making the pilot] was just a decision that came about organically because of that. They all realized they liked the strip, and said, “Why don’t we do a show?”

In more international news, Steven L. Cloud has left the country! The Boy on a Stick and Slither creator officially embarked on his globe-trotting "Mongol Rally" charity event this week. Once everything gets underway, Cloud has promised that you’ll be able to follow the adventure via Twitter. Be sure to check out my interview with Cloud for his thoughts on the event, and this Google Map showing the route they plan to take.

New at ComicMix: Comic Reader Updates and More!

If you’re a faithful reader of ComicMix (and we hope you are), you may have noticed that we didn’t post the new episode of Simone & Ajax: The Case of the Maltese Duck. It’s not because anything bad happened to our favorite dinosaur and his cute friend Simone. We’re giving Andrew and Jason a bit of a breather.

However, we have just installed some new bells and whistles to the site that will make it more fun for you to use.

You know how they made a hit television show out of the premise that you want to go to a place where everybody knows your name? Well, ComicMix now remembers how you like to read your comics. When you set a preference for single pages or double-page spreads or for a certain degree of magnification, that’s how the settings will stay, until you choose to change them again. And you can bookmark individual pages – if you want to check out page 3 of Simone & Ajax: The Case of the Maltese Duck, you can now do so directly.

You say you want more? Well, coming up in the near future we’ve got a couple of massive additions to our site – a world of entirely new features – and we’ll be bringing back Munden’s Bar and Black Ice, as well as starting up Giordano/McLaughlin/Holroyd’s White Viper and Trevor Von Eeden’s The Original Johnson. Plus new outings from John Ostrander and Ian Gibson and Joanna Estep… and more. A whole LOT more.

Stay tuned.
