Should you happen to find yourself at Emerald City Comicon a couple weeks from now, be sure to visit table H-15 and say hi to Ryan (the dude that writes D4VE), and grab one of these nifty D4VE postcards (which we have rendered useless of their actual function—it’s got two fronts!).
We can’t thank Mr. Michael Moreci enough for his kind words about D4VE. This means a huge amount to us.
Michael, as you’ll know, is the wickedly talented, the one and only, the incomparable writer behind such awesome comics as Curse, Hoax Hunters, Skybreaker, Prime-8s, and Robocop: Hominem Ex Machina, just to name a few.
If you haven’t checked out D4VE yet, head on over to comixology; the first three issues are out, and only 99 cents each, from the fine folks at Monkeybrain.

There are no words to describe just how freaking cool this is.
Chris Pyrate is a triumph and a treasure, an artist who’s work I adore. Had the pleasure of collaborating with him on our short comic Cool Lobster, which you can read right here, right now. So you can imagine my jaw hitting the floor when I saw his pinup inspired by D4VE. Just wow.
Big, big thanks to Chris for doing this.
"D4VE is a deeply human story about robots and aliens. It will resonate with anyone who’s felt trapped in a dead-end job; anyone who’s felt they weren’t living up to their full potential; anyone who’s questioned their purpose in this world, and their place in the universe. In other words: it will resonate with every single one of us.
On top of all that, it’s a gorgeous, exquisitely well-crafted comic. D4VE is simply brilliant.”

Big thanks to Dan and Bob for having me (Ryan) on the Splash Page Comicast show this week! It was a super-wicked-fun time and we talk about literally everything. Literally. Lots of D4VE talkin’.
Give it a listen, and subscribe to their show, they know how to do it way right. Give them a follow on the twitter too.
D4VE #3 came out today (you can get that right here) and we’ve already had some great reviews come out. Huge, huge thanks to everyone for taking the time to write about the issue and for supporting the book! Here’s some of the love, shared.

“While this series continues to be impressive, Valentin Ramon is more impressive. How he’s able to keep up with his level of quality is insane.”
“D4VE continues to be possibly the best digital comic of this year and shows no sign of slowing down. There is no other comic with this much humor, aliens, robots, and genuine feelings for just 99¢.”
“Ferrier lends such a unique and refreshing voice to “D4VE” that you’ll be smiling from ear to ear as you power through this engaging read. ”
“Consistently humorous and as aesthetically pleasing as anything you’ll pull off the shelf this Wednesday, there isn’t much not to like about this book.”
“The unraveling story of D4VE is proving to be a real treat. The tension interlaced with the character interactions have so far made this a stellar series and issue 3 does not let the side down.”

Once again, thank you so much for all of your reviews and support! We appreciate it so much. If you’d like to get your hands on D4VE to review, feel free to send an email to d4vecomic at gmail dot com.
Happy Wednesday: D4VE #003 is out now!
While the K’Laar initiate “phase 2,” D4VE sets out to assemble his old defense-bot crew. Nothing can prepare D4VE for his greatest nightmare yet however, in the form of an impromptu performance review.
Click here to purchase D4VE #003 from ComiXology for only 0.99 cents. We’re immensely proud of this issue, and we hope you love it too. Folks, this is where the S hits the F, I you know what we’re saying. Strap down your socks for a ride so wild it’ll make that mechanical bull you rode last summer look like a NyQuil sponsored screening of My Dinner with Andre.
If you’re new to D4VE, then welcome. Please, this way. Sit here. It’s the best seat we have. You look ravishing tonight. What can we do to make you more comfortable? Of course, anything. Yes, we do have the first two issues—a wonderful choice. “Chef’s delight,” in fact. It is on special, only 0.99 each. Yes, those are for full issues. Magnifique. Right away. *smacks fingers to lips all Italian-like* Please, click here.
Thanks so much to Monkeybrain for making this possible, and for being so amazingly awesome. And thanks so much to you for reading, for checking it out, for all of your support, and thanks to God, who never once doubted our dreams of making robots talk and fornicate.
If you’d like to reach out to the creators, you can! Whether it’s for review copies, comments, questions, or cupcakse, you can do so at d4vecomic at gmail.
Tomorrow. D4VE #3.
THIS IS COOL. The Hangout—a wonderful weekly video podcast from Comicosity—invited D4VE writer Ryan to be a guest on the show. That happened last night, and it was wonderful.
It was streamed live last night, but you can watch the whole show right now through the wonders of computation.
Follow The Comicosity Hangout on twitter for updates.
Did you need to secure any clearances for using lyrics to "In the Year 2525" in D4VE #1? I want to use song lyrics in something I'm working on and don't know the legality of doing so.
This is an interesting questio—oh god, I have no idea.
