2011 Wrap-Up!

Hey folks!

As the year comes to an end, Chris and I have taken a look a back at a year of firsts for REED GUNTHER and look forward to a new year filled with awesomeness!

It looks like we’ve made a little splash in the world of comics this year and a few press sites have taken notice.

iFanboy.com awarded REED GUNTHER by naming it #1 on its list of TEN MOST FUN COMICS OF 2011!

ComicAttack.net named REED GUNTHER as their #1 TOP ALL-AGES TITLE OF 2011!

ComicImpact.com reviewed REED GUNTHER #6 and singled out that issue as “the most fun comic of 2011!”

Well Watchers podcast awarded REED GUNTHER with BEST TRADE PAPERBACK COLLECTION OF 2011!

TheSnipeNews.com awarded REED GUNTHER as the MOST OVERLOOKED COMIC OF 2011!

Every month there are more and more folks discovering Reed and jumping headfirst into any issue. Don MacPherson over at EyeOnComics.com started with issues #5 and #6 and was smitten:

“The Houghton brothers clearly have a passion for comics and for light, goofy adventure. Each issue — hell, each panel — exudes so much personality and whimsy, one can’t help but smile at the title character’s triumphs and gaffes.”

And most strangely flattering… Chris and I were named number 6 and 7 on the list of TOP TEN SEXIEST COMIC CREATORS over at FreakinAwesomeNetwork.com. Seriously.

In the digital realm, REED GUNTHER #1 is now available on Comixology for FREE! Be sure to rate the book with as many stars as you feel appropriate. Also, the digital trade paperback is now only $7.99! What a steal!

2012 is going to be a big year for Reed Gunther so we hope you’re all on board! Starting in January, we have an incredibly fun werewolf story! Then in February, Reed takes a back seat as we have a spooky and fun story with Starla as the lead! Issues #9 and #10 are going to be an EPIC two-parter that you are not going to want to miss.

Thanks for reading all our goofy bear-riding adventures and we look forward to seeing you next year!

Happy Reading!
