This past week we saw a great review on Sequential State of the first issue of SCREWJOB, got some love from UltraMantis Black, and spent the weekend with Box Brown and Pat Aulisio in Philadelphia watching some live wrestling and talking about SCREWJOB #2!

The first issue of SCREWJOB was a great success for us, it's a beautiful book, with some amazing comics in it, and it's selling well, so it's a bit of a no-brainer to greenlight a sequel. Apparently there really is an audience for gross-out wrestling comics!

Box gets the party started with this grim "what if?" take on the death of Vince McMahon:

Pat gives us a glimpse into some of the little known nocturnal activities of Bret "the Hitman" Hart:

And Blake Sims brings us the tragic story of the Death of Bruiser Brody:

RIPExpo 2015 Special Guest Announcement

We are humbled and deeply honored to announce that the Hidden Fortress Press has been selected to be a Special Guest at RIPExpo 2015, alongside dear old friends Jo Dery, Caroline Paquita of Pegacorn Press, and the Providence Comics Consortium, and new friends Ginette Lapalme, Whit Taylor and Metropolarity!

Last year was the inaugural year for the RIPExpo (Rhode Island Independent Publishing Expo) and in my opinion, one of the best shows of the year! Everyone involved in organizing and coordinating the event worked so hard to put it all together, and totally nailed it! I am thrilled to be a part of the show again this year, and so proud to have been selected as a Special Guest.

We've got big plans for this show, including an epic collaboration with our pals in the Providence Comics Consortium! So excited about 2015 right now!
