After almost three years of appearing weekly in the San Francisco Chronicle, our comic Friendship Town will start appearing much less frequently, and only on your computer screen. Or on your telephone or tablet, or apparently now phablet (which is becoming a thing) screen. The point is, it will not be brought to your door by a boy on a bike or a grown man in his car.

Arriving later this year will be Archaia's hardcover book we've been designing (and lettering) called The Joyners in 3D. The "3D" refers to the three dimensional appearance of the art (by Ultimate Spider-Man's Dave Marquez), when viewed while wearing weird, otherwise-useless glasses. Do not expect the characters to "literally" jump off the page, that's impossible. Syndrome's RJ Ryan will provide the story as well as nude pictures of himself.
