You have until 11:59 EST on 3/10/2014 to get Edison Rex #1 for free
Comixology did a promotion all weekend at SXSW and gave away a bunch of comics.
There was a monkeybrain promo featuring TEN fir issues including Edison Rex
Redeem the code above at this link:
Also, the character find of 2014: Human Garbage.
I decided to remaster some of the art on the first issue of Edison Rex.
Mostly heads and hands in various panels. Getting the characters more on model with the rest of the series plus a new cover featured above.
Normally I don’t believe in going backwards on this kind of stuff but I realized that digital changes things in a pretty significant way. If someone decides they want to check out Edison Rex or any book digitally they’re not likely to pick up the latest issue. They’re going to start with the first one because it never sells out and is always on sale. So if that’s the case the first issue is always the first impression of the book and I figure it needs to look as good as I can make it.
So that’s what I did. It’s better looking and more cohesive with the rest of the series. You can still see the old pages floating around online, on the Pirate Bay, and in the print collection(although I imagine we’ll update it in future printings) if you want to compare.
If you’ve never read the book before then now is the best possible time to check it out:
Edison Rex 14 is out and available for download on Comixology!
Not only is the cover an homage to Love and Rockets but the whole dang comic is too! This issue contains several smaller stories exploring the relationships of some of Edison Rex’s supporting characters and interlock to tell a larger story that plays into everything we’ve seen in nearly every issue of Rex so far. It’s also the first appearance of 2014’s character of the year, HUMAN GARBAGE. All for less than a buck, Rexphiles.
I’m really proud of this one!
I put together an order form for Volume 2 of Edison Rex.

You’ll want to print this out and take it to your local comic shop so they can get you a copy. You can even have them order you a copy of volume 1 which is being offered again this month too.
If you’re looking for a comiic shop go here:
All the print editions of Edison Rex are published by IDW and single issues come out monthly from Monkeybrain via Comixology.
Please reblog this far and wide. We want to make sure to get Rex into the hands of everyone that would enjoy it!
Edison Rex 12 is available now on Comixology
Has Edison Rex finally managed to convince everyone that he’s a hero now, and not the villain he used to be? And will a new generation of heroes accept him as one of their own?

This issue is a big deal for Chris and me. Along with Amelia Cole also out today we’re the first Monkeybrain books to hit the 12th issue. Not only is it an important milestone for us but it wraps up what will be the second print collection of the book which will be available in the spring from IDW.
Chris and I have put a lot of work into the overall Edison Rex story and if you’ve been reading the issues as they come out I invite you to take the time to reread all 12 issues (including the Rexfiles!) together. Each issue a satisfying read that can stand on it’s own but when linked together starts to create a much larger picture. We’ve planted a lot of seeds that are starting to bear more and more fruit as the book continues. My favorite comics are ones that reward me for rereading them all together and it’s our hope you’ll find that with our book.
Finally, if you’re enjoying our book then please help us spread the word about it. Our goal is to get Rex into the hands of everyone that would enjoy it. If you know someone that isn’t happy with the current state of the super hero genre then give them our book. We’re offering a kind of story that is not being told right now by the Big Two. We’re really proud of the work.
Thanks so much for supporting our book!

Edison Rex 12
I’ve been wanting to do this cover for a while now. It features every villain (even the reformed ones) that have appeared in the series so far. Issue 12 is a milestone for us and it wraps up what will be the second tpb. I’m very excited for people to read it!
