Media Release — Orang Utan Comics are pleased to announce the release of the second issue of their critically acclaimed anthology, FTL!
FTL is Orang Utan Comics’ flagship anthology series! You can expect the very best quick fire stories in these pages, from some of the most exciting creators working in comics today. This is the comics anthology where anything goes! Vampires! Dragons! Robots! Ninjas! Knights! Vikings! Cheerleaders! You name it, you’ll find it in the pages of FTL!
The second stunning installment of FTL brings you a heady mix of post-apocalyptic visions, super heroics, werewolves and creepy ancient myths as Orang Utan Comics continue in their quest to bring you the best mix of comic book short story goodness available. Hmmm…or should that be “badness”? Anyway, this issue they’ve also teamed up with the fine people at Nightmaera to bring you the first part of their period horror tale, Secret Cross!
Orang Utan Comics have simultaneously released FTL #2 in both print and digital formats. As with all of their titles, you can order the print version on demand from IndyPlanet – http://www.indyplanet.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=2500 They are also continuing to explore the digital comics revolution by teaming up with DriveThru Comics to offer all of their new titles in a digital format. Both FTL #1 and the Alpha Gods OGN are already both available to download in PDF format from the popular digital comics site. FTL #2 immediately shot to the number two spot on DriveThru’s top 100 comics when it was released earlier this week.

Orang Utan Comics’ Managing Editor, Ian Sharman, added, “This is a really exciting time for comic books and we intend to continue to explore new ways of delivering our comics to readers. We will have many exciting announcements about new digital comics projects in the near future, including our first big step into the world of comics for mobile devices.”
“FTL #2 is a wonderful anthology comic that showcases some of the hottest new writers and artists in the industry. Ian Sharman and Orang Utan Comics have put a lot of heart and soul into this project, and it all pays of in the form of this great collection of stories. The comic industry is sadly lacking in anthology titles these days. Some companies have tried their hand at it recently, but all have ultimately failed, because none of them have put the same amount of care and attention in to their anthologies as Orang Utan has.” – Edward Kaye, Hypergeek.
FTL #2 will be receiving its official offline launch at next month’s Wales Comic Con on Sunday 27th September at Glyndwr University, Wrexham, where it will be available with an exclusive signed and numbered art card illustrated by Eagle Award nominated painter, Azim Akberali.
