Space Goat Announces Backpack Editions

backpack-editions-1Publisher Space Goat Productions has announced a new line of Backpack Edition comic books. Perfect-bound, at 9″ x 6″, the graphic novels are small enough to fit in backpacks, messenger bags, and purses, while still being durable enough for travel. Perfect for readers on the go. Most books will be available digitally on Amazon and Comixology well in advance of physical publication.

The line will launch with two new series: Moonlighters and Uncanny Valley High. Both are available for pre-order on Comixology today.

Moonlighters features broke college-age werewolves taking supernatural odd jobs to pay the rent. Written by Katie Schenkel and illustrated by Cal Moray. They are monster helpers for hire.

Uncanny Valley High is about a high school in a (poorly rendered) computer simulation dealing with all of the glitchy hijinks that entails. Think Archie, if Archie was trapped in a broken video game. Written by Ian Flynn (Sonic the Hedgehog, Mega Man) and illustrated by Maddi Gonzalez (Munchkin, Fresh Romance).
