A 128-page book of featuring 4 new adventures of Simone & Ajax, a fun-loving 20-something girl and her best pal, a small, green dinosaur, featuring tales of Pirates, the Old West, Vampires and Werewolves, and the always popular “hardboiled” Ajax, Private Eye, plus lots of lemmings! Of those 128 pages, over 100 pages will be new comics, along with a collection of covers, my Christmas cards, and other Simone & Ajax artwork, some never seen by the general public, all wrapped in a new cover. Described by one reader as the look of an Archie comic but the sensibilities of a Marx Brothers movie, and compared favorably to Bone and Cerebus by one reviewer.
Rewards range from print and digital editions of the book, to a mystery (every box contains some kind of original art plus other items), commission rewards, and various original art rewards.
