BANDETTE Wins Third EISNER AWARD!

It is our profound pleasure to announce that Bandette has been chosen Best Digital Comic in the 2017 Eisner Awards!

This is the third time Bandette has been so honored (previous years: 2013, 2016) and we could not be more proud. We thank our digital publishing company, Monkeybrain Comics, and our digital distributor, Comixology, for providing us with the platform to create the best comic we can make. We also thank Dark Horse Comics for producing beautiful hardcover print editions of Bandette.

Finally, we thank the brilliant artists who have contributed their work to the Urchin Stories series of 2-3 page backup comics, featuring the many secondary characters who populate Bandette’s world! These stories help flesh out Bandette’s friends, rivals, and enemies, and they are being posted on a weekly basis (until we run out) at Bandette.Net. Anyone wanting a free taste of Bandette should navigate there immediately!

Digital issues of Bandette are available through the cross-platform Comixology app for 99¢ each!

The Dark Horse print editions are available from comic shops everywhere in the United States and Canada, as well as from your favorite online book vendors.

Bandette is available in Spanish from Aleta, and in French from Groupe Paquet.

BANDETTE! New installment… TODAY!!!

Screen shot 2016-05-10 at 7.24.01 PM

Today! Our newest digital chapter of Bandette arrives TODAY. It’s the final installment in our “House of the Green Mask” storyline, and our longest chapter to date, because there was extra adventure and charm and suspense and thievery to fit into the pages. Colleen Coover really worked her adorable fingers to the bone, and it shows! Her artwork and storytelling just keep getting better and better. I’m lucky to work with her, and of course even luckier that I hypnotized her into being my wife.

Here are a few random out-of-order panels from the issue… come on over to ComiXology and put them in context by reading the lucky 13th installment of a title that, over the last four years, has been nominated for ten (!) Eisner awards. (which is both extremely humbling and also… wow… extremely hard to wrap my head around)Screen shot 2016-05-10 at 7.23.43 PM

BANDETTE: The comic Colleen Coover and I create to make everyone (including us) happy.

koala

If that’s true, I think I can solve the problem. You see, you obviously haven’t had enough Bandette in your life! Bandette is the most charming comic that has ever existed. It has drama, romance, action, and intrigue. It has thieves. It has GLORIOUS thieves. It has dangerous men and beautiful women. It has dangerous women and ugly men. And spies. And candy bars. Bandette is, in short, an Eisner-winning foray into the delightful garden of comics.

Above is an example of how hard the charm comes at you when reading Bandette, the story of the greatest thief in all existence, a teenage girl with a heart for adventure, a taste for chocolate, and a talented group of adoring urchins who help her fight crime, and occasionally to commit a bit of it themselves, because… you know… that thief thing.

Calm down, Adam-12 cops, I can handle this. I’m going to show everyone some art from Bandette.

Bandette has won the Eisner award for Best Digital Comic, and garnered nominations for Best Art, Best Colors, and Best Series. Pretty spiffy, huh?

why

Don’t cry, Exceptionally Well-Painted Girl. It’s NOT too late! Bandette can be ordered HERE in digital form, from the fine folks at MonkeyBrain and Comixology. And it’s in print from Dark Horse Comics as well. You can order the nicely-priced hardcover right HERE!

Bandette in battle against Matadori, the semi-fiendish assassin!

Batman would probably approve of Bandette. Except for that “thief” thing. He doesn’t like that. Don’t nobody tell him that part.

Bandette readers, for sure.

Screen shot 2014-07-08 at 7.55.45 PM

Yes! Go and order Bandette, either in DIGITAL FORM, or the wonderful HARDCOVER EDITION, with so many extras!

Screen shot 2014-07-08 at 7.36.47 PM

Join the legions of satisfied Bandette fans!

Screen shot 2014-07-08 at 7.55.03 PM

Presto indeed! Let’s take a look at someone who hasn’t been reading Bandette!

Screen shot 2014-07-08 at 7.37.27 PM

Uh-oh! Don’t be that guy!

Curious about Bandette? Let me explain this in simple terms. Bandette is the world’s greatest thief, and Bandette is the world’s most charming adventure comic.

Yes, that’s right, Bandette # 4 is up and ready for your reading pleasure! What waits within? Will there be a fight?

Looks that way! Could there also be… a mysterious woman?

Yep. And graveyards and thievery and big-nosed special police officers and LOTS of other wonderful things await in the fourth episode of Bandette, available by clicking HERE! And… if you’ve been undecided about reading Bandette, keep in mind that it’s now been nominated for FOUR Eisner awards. That’s right, it’s no longer just me with a whiskey bottle and a bullhorn, standing half-dressed on the roof of a car dealership bellowing about how wonderful Bandette is… it’s now Eisner-certified!
