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


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?


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 daffy


Bandette readers, for sure.

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

Join the legions of satisfied Bandette fans!

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

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.
