Below is the official press release from Alterna:
“We are excited to announce that Jeff McComsey’s ‘FUBAR PRESS‘ has joined forces with Alterna Comics as an official imprint. FUBAR PRESS will follow in the creator-owned mentality that Alterna is known for and will be headed by President and Publisher Jeff McComsey, Art Director Steve Becker, and Story Editor Jeff McClelland. The imprint will operate under the Alterna Comics banner as it always has but will have their own submissions, story ideas, and creative teams centering around a mash-up of historical-horror fiction.
Branching out with the MOTHER RUSSIA mini-series by Jeff McComsey (debuting issue #1 in stores today), the brand is set to build on the unique story-telling and phenomenal artwork that readers have been enjoying since 2010. McComsey speaks about his experience with Alterna and the future of FUBAR, “I’ve worked with Alterna Comics on just about everything I have published since I started making comics in 2007. From my first series, AMERICAN TERROR to when Steve Becker and I published volume one of FUBAR five years ago, Peter Simeti has been a publisher I can count on. I’m very proud to finally make FUBAR PRESS an official imprint of Alterna. While we’ll continue to publish FUBAR PRESS books on all platforms available, we will be focusing a large portion of our time and resources on engaging retailers and showing them why we deserve a spot on the shelf in 2015.”

FUBAR Central Command is beyond proud to be featured in Kickstarter’s year in review. We got a mention for being the first ever Kickstarter funded graphic novel to hit the New York Times Best Seller’s list. We’re beyond proud to use a platform like Kickstarter to fund our projects. After reviewing the whole slide show of Kickstarter’s successes of 2012 I think it’s clear that the site and model aren’t going anywhere AND that they do amazing work and provide an incredible service by allowing independent projects to finance their dreams. Truly inspiring.
This morning NPR’s blog featured the list of projects mentioned in the KS slideshow. Once again we were humbled to see that FUBAR is at the top of the list of featured success stories.
I can’t help but think that our new volume FUBAR: American History Z is going to great things when it’s released in Spring 2013!
our newest volume FUBAR American History Z is just about in the can. We’ve taken the project to kickstarter to help raise funds for printing a ton of books in very early 2013. This volume is massive, clocking in at 32 stories, 326 pages. We’ve expanded from just World War II to now include the entire American Experience. The book is chronological and will be available in March/May 2013. IF you want to get your hands on it sooner along with some other awesome FUBAR merch, shoot over tour KICKSTARTER and help us fund the printing of this monster!
