Hiro is currently creating an alternative distribution method by not going through comic book distributors. The strategy is to go directly to our readers getting the comic books to Medical Marijuana Clubs, Legal Dispensaries and Pipe Shops.This is a comic book for stoners. We are going for a specific niche.

THE STONED AGE is 32 pages of content in a modern day humorous story about the end of marijuana prohibition. The 12 issues will start in with the publishing date of November of 2015 (11/15--10/16). However we are printing the copies at the beginning of October.

Andre Owens and Craig X worked together at 2000 BC the famous celebrity bong shop on Melrose Avenue in the 1990s. Now they have come together again to combine their two passions. Cannabis and Cartoons with their new product, THE STONED AGE Comic Book, which is the story of a Melrose bong shop at the end of prohibition. There will be 5,000 copies printed per month and distributed to Medical Marijuana Clubs, Legal Dispensaries and Pipe Shops.

 Andre Owens is a comic book writer and publisher and is the owner of Hiro Unlimited Publishing. He approached Craig about creating the comic book about a fictionalized version of the former shop. Thus was born THE STONED AGE.

THE STONED AGE is a comedy of the highest order. You will fall in love with the Hollywood characters who work at the bong shop and the story of how they survived under prohibition. The first season introduces the characters as they transition from years of working at the bong shop under prohibition to suddenly running a 'legal' marijuana sales location on the famous Melrose Avenue.

Risks and challenges

Creating a comic is a challenging process but we believe that we have the right people and a passion for the subject matter. One of our obstacles is distribution. It is not easy to find distributors for comics, so we are creating our own distribution channels. We started making calls today and we have some 420 friendly stores in California that want to distribute this comic book at their shops. We'll be calling Washington and Colorado next, then the rest of the country. We have a list of over 5,000 shops that sell pipes and these locations will be our distribution centers.
