We are now in our 27th year of publishing.

Your continuing support has brought us success with these recent titles:

#22 

 Tales of the Mysterious Traveler no. 16 

 Out of This World no. 17 

 #2oww3oww

We are now pleased to announce the reprinting of a title that has been out of print for many years. 

Mr. A. no. 4. 

Mr. A. no. 4 was originally published by Bruce Hershenson in 1975.

Who is Mr. A? Can you name his motivation? What is it about him that has attracted so much attention for almost 50 years? Why has a journalist labeled Steve Ditko's work "a frightening philosophy"? Where has this unique character appeared? 

For those who came in late…

Here is your opportunity to judge the work and that character for yourself.

Now comes Mr. A. no. 4. In a special 40th Anniversary Edition

The cover, stories and artwork in this book are complete and ready to go. Only the editorial pages are open. That is where you come in. We will add your name to the Honor Roll of our subscribers. We need only gather your names for the editorial pages.

Yes, there is more. We refer you to our Biography for further details.

Risks and challenges

We have worked out most of the bugs in preparing, producing and delivering Rewards in a Kickstarter campaign. The only real problem we have experienced is in the late or non-existent delivery of a package in the mail. Last time about 12 packages went missing. Rather than wait for possible late delivery, we mailed replacements to each supporter.
With your good support, we look forward to delivering your Rewards promptly and ahead of schedule.
