Two previously-published titles, PLASTIC FARM by Rafer Roberts and NANTUCKET BROWN ROASTERS by Jason Asala, will be debuting this October from Ambrosia Publishing. Both titles are scheduled to begin their online serialization this fall with the collected versions being published in early 2008.
PLASTIC FARM was originally published by creator Rafer Roberts and ran for 12-issues where it garnered praise from such creators as Dave (CEREBUS) Sim and Larry (AiT/PlanetLar) Young. Planned as a continuing series, PLASTIC FARM follows the life of a man named Chester and his slow descent into complete insanity, and chronicles how that madness reshapes the world around him. Chester has had a rough childhood, has a magic cowboy that rides a dinosaur living inside of his head, and is now, late in life, sitting in a nameless airport bar during a blizzard telling his life story to a group of people who really couldn’t care less.
Jason Asala’s NANTUCKET BROWN ROASTERS (now simply known as ROASTERS) is an eccentric, innovative fable of action, fantasy, and weird fiction starring Fish, a bluegill possessed by a 6,000-year-old evil pharaoh, Ahab, a one-legged, spear-wielding strongman in a new body, and Daisy, a living doll. The first previously-published NANTUCKET BROWN ROASTERS mini-series will be serialized and published by Ambrosia Publishing. We are introduced to Ahab, Daisy and Fish, who become the core of the Roasters as well as learn about Khufu and his crazy schemes of world domination, and oatmeal cookies.
Both PLASTIC FARM and NANTUCKET BROWN ROASTERS will begin their online serialization at Ambrosia Publishing beginning this October.
