IT’S HERE!!!!

ATTENTION PLEASE! Our long awaited guest has arrived: Shards: Volume One, soft cover edition. These lovely anthologies are now eagerly waiting for their forever homes, so don’t miss your chance to add one to your shelves.

What is Shards: Volume One you ask? Well, this graphic novel is a collection of six original, beautifully crafted stories that introduce In Hiatus Studios’ freshman class of new titles.

Each story began as personal passion project that always seemed to take a back seat to more pressing projects. But through the collective creative vision and drive of our six creators, these stories were finally given their time in the spotlight.

So click on over to our shop and order your copy today.

Graphic Policy Spotlight: In Place of Honor creator Kimberly Moss and illustrator Digo Salazar!

IT’S ALMOST VALENTINE’S DAY AND WE HAVE SOME GREAT NEWS!! We’ve been hard at work getting those finishing touches on Shards: Volume 2, and it is looking awesome! PLUS, the soft cover of Shards: Volume 1 is on its way (Woot!), and looking like it will be here later this week. EEK! We are so excited, because they are just as SEEEEXXXXYYYYY as the hardbacks.

Now, before you pop over to the shop to preorder your soft cover of Shards: Volume 1, we wanted to take the time to reintroduce you to one of our original titles In Place of Honor, written by Kimberly Moss and illustrated by Digo Salazar (creator of CACHE to be featured in Shards: Volume 2).

In Place of Honor is a re-imagining of the classic fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood. Though the original tale tells of a little girl and her grandmother being devoured by a hungry wolf, In Place of Honor is actually a love story at its heart. It’s a tale about two women from opposites sides of a war, who find their kindred spirit in their sworn enemy. To see how it all begins, check out In Place of Honor Issue 0 in Shards: Volume 1, and find out what happens next in Issue 1 to be out later this spring!

Thanks again to #graphicpolicy.com for featuring our founding members and creators of #InHiatus Studios. To check out the interview for In Place of Honor, just click here!
