For the past 3 years we've been putting together panels at Comic-Con and this year is no different.

We've been exhibiting at the San Diego Comic-Con now since 2010(where we premiered Finding Frank and His Friend). This year is marking the 5th year, and our 5th publication completely developed and produced by us.  We adore this show, the crowd and friends there really understand the crazy projects that we undertake.  Every time we wrap up the show our batteries are charged for the year and I'm ready to stare at computer monitor for the next production.

Stop by our booth to say hello and thumb through the new book and tell us which easter eggs you catch in the new book.


Looking forward to seeing you in San Diego.

Spaceman Jax Comic - The Proofs are in!

Spaceman Jax and the Galactic Adventures - by Curio & Co. - Design and illustration by Cesare Asaro - co-developed with Kirstie Shepherd - color proof of Spaceman Jax Through the Mantagon Minefield comic book - humorous retro comic - Curio and Co. OG (www.curioandco.com)

Spaceman Jax comic proofs from the printer are in!  On the actual paper that it will be printed on, which makes a heck of a difference, it smells like a newspaper!  I dig the smell of paper, I guess that's one of the reasons why I started making books in the first place.
