Kickstarter for a Friend


Hi friends!

My name is Justin Castaneda and I am the creator of the
When I Was Little picture book series. I met Dave and Rene of Instant Press Comics at Wizard World Chicago a few years back. We have since shared the convention floor and continue to build a great creative friendship. They were kind enough to have me do a guest post because I have a new book project I am raising funds for thru Kickstarter.

The way Kickstarter works is it funds creativity. It accepts donations to help creative people get their passion projects made. Artists, writers, and filmmakers can set up a Kickstarter campaign and by supporting them and their work, you get rewarded! For instance when you donate to my project, you can receive a signed copy, sketch cards, digital prints, buttons, custom art and a lot more.

So the name of my new book is called, Heart. Heart is a story about love and acceptance. This book has been a labor of love for many years. I really believe in this book. It's been an idea birthed through the struggles I had growing up trying to find where I fit in. I had difficulty making friends and I thought for the longest time it's because of who I was as a person. I thought if I changed who I was I would find my place. It wasn't until much later when I learned all that was non-sense and the most important thing I could ever do was: To Be Myself.

It's a bit more expensive to release a hardcover children'
s book than I had anticipated. I didn't want to cop out into doing it as a softcover, it's not meant to be that way. With the help of some fellow creatives that gave me an extra push, I started this Kickstarter campaign:

I hope you can help support the book and the message this book gives.

I thank you for your time and consideration and thanks again to Dave and Rene for letting me post on their blog!

Dan Con 2012 Report

Dan Con has come and gone. Thanks to all the folks that came out and supported the release of House of the Wolfman. The Dan Con exclusive sketch covers were a hit and here are some of the covers that were done and sold at the show:


And as a special treat we got one done by a friend of ours, Justin Castaneda.
We're going to be doing Free Comic Book day at First Aid comics again this year and we've discussed having a sketch cover available exclusively for James at First Aid. As soon as we get the artwork done we'll post it here and on the website. Our next show however will be the highly anticipated C2E2 at the McCormick Place.

Distant Collected


This year we at Instant Press Comics will not just be celebrating our 10th anniversary, but also the 5th anniversary of our best selling title, Distant. For the past four years we've been selling several sets of the popular mini series at conventions and the fans have been asking for a collected edition. To celebrate the 5th year, we are going to finally collect all four issues and the FCBD ashcan "Not So Distant" under one cover. There will also be new pinups as well as new illustrations by Manuel Preitano. Look forward to this collected volume in March of 2012 for just $9.95. You can check out the official site for more information and also on how to order your very own copy.

10 Years Of Instant Press Comics


Happy New Year to everybody out there.

This year is a special year for Instant Press Comics. We are celebrating 10 years of publishing! Keep an eye here as we let you know where we will be signing at and what goodies we have coming out for the celebration.

Without a doubt we will be celebrating the fifth year of Distant, our most popular title here. For the first time, we will be collecting all 4 issues, not to mention Not-So-Distant, the free mini comic giveaway as well as pinups new and old and a brand new wraparound cover. We'll give you more details on that as it becomes available.

Further more, we'll be putting together for the first time in 10 years an annual book. That's right. This year we'll have Instant Press 2012 for sale. It's going to feature, as the original book did, new short stories from all the creators at Instant Press Comics. We'll have Starbomb, WhiteKnife, Laundry Detergent Man, Unit 1, Dorks and everybody's favorite, The Wolfman. We're all excited about this one. After 10 years we're going to get it right once again.

So there you have it. As the year goes we'll post more news on what's to be expected. For those of you waiting on the edge of your seats after the exciting cliffhanger in Starbomb issue 2 you'll be happy to know that issue 3 is being worked on and we'll have that out too.
