Early review of Division 18 #2 at Broken Frontier

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2008

The Union’s number one fan, Dave Baxter, has nothing but praise for the follow-up to what he calls “the funniest debut of 2007.”

 Check out the full review here, order issue #1 here, and then run (yes RUN!) to your comic shop and tell them to order enough copies of issue #2 (Diamond order code: DEC07 3879) for you and all your friends!

Insert ‘blow hole’ joke here…

Division 18 interview on Indie Comics News (ICN Podcast 54)

Sunday, January 6th, 2008

Listen now to 40 minutes with Matt Bergin and Jeremy Donelson shooting the shizzle on how they got into comics, how each issue of Division 18 gets made, and why I, Vampire is a better gateway comic than X-Men. Also, Groo. We both love us some Groo.

ICN 54: Division 18

We were worried we’d come off like a couple of jerks in this thing, but our podcast interview with ICN didn’t turn out half bad. In fact, I’d say it’s at least half good!

Division 9?! Issue #1 Now HALF OFF at the Silent Devil Store — WOOT!!!

Monday, January 7th, 2008

Here at Union Headquarters, we want to maximize your exposure to Division 18. That’s why, for a limited time, we’ve slashed the price of Division 18: The Union of Novelty Costumed Performers #1 (of 3) in half (now only $1.50!) — allowing you to stock up on the first issue alongside your regular orders for the second.

So act now! Visit the Silent Devil Store to order issue #1, and then hit up your local comic shop and DEMAND that they stock up huge on issue #2 (Diamond order code: DEC07 3789).

And if you’re still not convinced, listen to the creators of D18 (that’s me and Jeremy to you, buddy) talk up all things Division 18 in this sweet-tastic 40-minute ICN interview. Go on… we’ll wait right here for you to finish.

Saturday, January 12th, 2008

There’s nothing like the immediacy of the Internet… the instant gratification of global communications at the touch of a few buttons. And with that, we bring you this Fanboy Video podcast from November 2007′s Wizard World Texas. Watch as Silent Devil’s engine of destruction and cybernetic workhorse, Christian Beranek, tells you that (spoiler) Division 18 is on sale AND funny. That’s a double whammy!
