Another webcomic makes the jump to print:
Building on the success as a daily Web comic at Popimage.com, YOUNG BOTTOMS IN LOVE, Poison Press is proud to announce the print release of this popular work, due in stores May 2007.

Created in August 2002, by the very versatile cartoonist and editor, Tim Fish, the online daily comic, YOUNG BOTTOMS IN LOVE, has examined gay romance from nearly every angle. Dozens of creators–gay and straight, amateur and professional–have contributed their many talents to the strip over time, expressing themselves in all manner of styles from the familiar to the abstract, from the humorous to the grave.

Paige Braddock (Eisner nominee, JANE’S WORLD)
Howard Cruse (Eisner winner, STUCK RUBBER BABY)
