Any Yehuda Moon fans in the house? If so, you’ll be pleased to hear the following from Rick Smith and Brian Griggs…masterminds behind one of the greatest bike comics of all time:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
‘YEHUDA MOON AND THE KICKSTAND CYCLERY’ BICYCLE COMICS HAVE RETURNED
New Comics Weekdays in 2012
January 11, 2012
‘Yehuda Moon and the Kickstand Cyclery’ bicycle comics have returned in January 2012: http://www.kickstandcomics.com.
After a break from the comic last Fall, Rick Smith and Brian Griggs have returned with all new comics running weekdays for Kickstand Club member. Membership is $12 a year or $1 a month and includes other benefits like easy-read comics, freebies, discounts, and more. Monday comics are free for everybody, as are 1,300+ comics from 2008 – 2011 in the ‘archives.’ One lucky Kickstand Club member will win Rick’s ‘Van Sweringen’ city bicycle on March 1st: this is the bicycle on which he created the strip while commuting to work in 2008.
Along with new comics there’s much afoot at the Kickstand Cyclery:
The 2012 Kickstand Cyclery Virtual Alleycat Race Powered by Cyclelicious: http://www.yehudamoon.com/virtual_alleycat_2012.php
Cyclelicious (http://cyclelicio.us) and the Kickstand Cyclery have teamed up for a winter race: The Kickstand Cyclery Virtual Alleycat. When the race begins on January 30th, participants will ‘race’ from Internet checkpoint to checkpoint as they visit various bicycle websites. Prizes will be awarded for speed, agility, and creative comments left at each checkpoint. Registration is open (and free for all) through January 29, 2012.
Kickstand Comics Volumes 1, 2, 3, and 4 begin shipping in February: http://www.yehudamoon.com/shop.php
After a successful Kickstarter campaign (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/yehudamoon/kickstand-comics-volumes-2-3-and-4), all Kickstand comics appearing from 2008 – 2011 were collected in four full-color books (about 96 pages a piece). The books are available for preorder now for readers who missed the Kickstarter opportunity.
Yehuda Moon will also appear in Bicycle Times Magazine beginning with issue 15. Look for it wherever fine magazines are sold and online at http://www.bicycletimes.com.
The comic strip ‘Yehuda Moon and the Kickstand Cyclery’ is about two guys who run a bike shop and the challenges they face in the store and on the road. Yehuda’s the utilitarian advocate; Joe’s the go-fast pragmatist. Thistle Gin, a wrench and biking mom, rounds them out. Visit the Kickstand Cyclery at http://www.kickstandcomics.com.
