The original graphic novel Titan: An Alternate History has been featured in The National Post, SPACE, and with Fearless Fred of 102.1 The Edge. Written by Michael Tymczyszyn and illustrated by Andy Stanleigh, the book has received exceptional reviews from fans and critics alike, including “The Best In New Graphic Novels” by the National Post. Titan has since been included as required reading for a Contemporary Canadian Literature course at Western University.
AH Comics raised over $52,000 on Kickstarter to produce the 256 page Jewish Comix Anthology: Volume 1, which includes rare and never-before-seen work from some of the biggest names in comic book history, including Will Eisner, Robert Crumb, Art Spiegelman, Michael Netzer, Clifford Meth, Harvey Pekar and Stan Lee! This Anthology has been featured in the media at large, as well as a special segment on InnerSpace.
AH Comics is also excited to introduce Delta, a unique 16 page graphic novel/album combination with music by the eclectic jazz instrumental quartet The River Pilots. Delta was in the selection process for a Juno Nomination for “Best Package Design” in 2013.
Also currently available is the dark psychological thriller Hobson’s Gate | Trauma – an original graphic novel written and illustrated by Andy Stanleigh, the co-creator and artist of Titan. Hobson’s Gate | Trauma is part one of a three part series, and has been nominated for an Associated of Arts & Social Change Canadian Publishing Award, as well as an AASC People’s Choice Award.
