Pickle Press

News, updates, convention appearances, and all things indie comics

April 2014


Action!  That's a rough version of page 17 from the upcoming Stripper Viking #3.  The extra-large issue is full of action, naughty and otherwise.

Speaking of Stripper Viking, the "regular cover" edition of issue 1 is sold out!

Tantra #1 now in print!

The first issue of Tantra - my crazy adults only space opera starring artist / dominatrix Madison Martin - is now in print.  There are also a few of the ashcan previews still available.  Madison and I are quite happy with it and the next issue should be even crazier.  $5.00 plus shipping.

CANDI 2069 #1 ashcan preview also available!

I also have a very limited number of ashcans for CANDI 2069 #1 for sale ($2.50 apiece).  It has the first 11 pages of the book and is a fun sci-fi, sexy adventure tale by me, Paul Schultz, Sean Kasper, and Samantha the Muscle Goddess.

Check out my horror host show...
My online horror host program, Weird-O-Rama, now has twenty-four episodes available for your viewing pleasure.  The current episode shows a George Zucco and Glenn Strange film - The Mad Monster.  You can find the show on YouTube and more information at Weird-O-Rama.com.  I grew up as a "monster kid" watching
Nightmare Theatre hosted by the Shroud.  When I learned that there were no such programs around here, I started my own.  I also have a blog for my host - Victor Von Psychotron.
My next convention is...

Fort Wayne, Indiana's Appleseed Con May 17-18th.  It's always a fun show, and they're bringing in some great guests this year.  It's also the first time this will be a two-day show, and there's a music festival in Ft. Wayne that weekend, so you can't go wrong.  There's a chance I'll be at C2E2 on April 25th, but I'll be there as a fan and not selling my wares. 

Thanks to all who stopped by the Pickle Press table at the Indiana Comic Con last month.  It was possibly my best show ever for sales. It was a much-needed experience for me, as my sales had been lacking for several shows in a row.  The show's organizers did a great job handling the crowd that was over three times what they expected.

Don't forget the Pickle Press blog, the Facebook fan pages, and my Twitter account...
I keep the Pickle Press blog updated more often than the website here (I shoot for once a week), so be sure to check it for more photos and weekly updates of my various projects and convention appearances.  I also have a Twitter account (@NikHavert), so you can catch me there as well.  I have three fan pages on Facebook as well, one for Pickle Press one for my non-comic book work, and one for Weird-O-Rama.  Check them out when you get a chance.

Book news
Progress continues on the Rainstorm #2 script, and I hope to have Mars Needs MILFs #1 sent to press this month.  
There are more updates on the Titles page in the "Future Titles" section.  Look for the UPDATED! or NEW! markings.

Looking for work or more about me?

If you are a penciller, inker, and/ or colorist, please feel free to check out the "Future titles from Pickle Press" part of the Titles page for job opportunities with Pickle Press.  I will post the current state of various projects that need drawn, inked, and/or colored.  If you're looking for work with Pickle Press, that will be the place to find it.  

You can use the links below to find out more about me and my various projects and the people with whom I have created these things.  I hope you will continue to support Pickle Press and indie comics.
