A. Jaye Williams wanted us to let you know that the folks at SillWill Press have a relatively new graphic novel out called The Adventures of Astrodog. It's a full-colour, 48 page, one-shot, original tale about a girl, her dog, and their antics in Luna City on the moon.

It's mainly geared at young readers, but Jaye suggest that those of you who enjoyed Leave it to Chance, Johnny Quest, and Tintin might like Astrodog too!

Astrodog is only available through SillWill press. We decided to self-distribute the book for a number of reasons--all cost related. We only printed 300 copies for the 1st run, and so it's a limited edition, in which a pencil sketch can be provided by artist Alison Williams upon request, and copies can be signed by both the writer, A. Jaye (that's me), and the artist, Alison, if also requested. We can to do this since we're doing the distribution ourselves, we have all the books on hand, and there's a limited number available

There you can see some of the artwork, read about the characters and the story there.

SillWill Press is small press; a two person operation that's been in business since 1999 out of London, Ontario, Canada. Their first release was The Sorcerer's Children-- a four issue mini-series and its sequel, The Sorcerer's Children: A Conspiracy of Shadows.
