Press Release Eisner and Harvey award-winning cartoonist Scott Kurtz (PvPonline.com) is mining his many years spent both in front of and behind a D&D® Dungeon Master’s screen to bring us his brand new comic series, Table Titans.
Scott Kurtz has announced that he is leaving Image Comics and Diamond Comic Distributors to return to self publishing with the next collected volume of PvP. “Over the last three years our business has shifted,” says Kurtz. “Sales through brick-and-mortar stores are declining and online sales are increasing. Readers who discovered PvP in comic shops have shifted from monthly readers to online readers, and their buying habits have changed. The monthly floppy is selling less and the trade paperbacks are selling more.” Kurtz was with Image Comics for eight years, but future releases will come from his own Toonhound Studios

Scott Kurtz has posted infor about his appearance at the 2007 San Diego Comic Con. We already posted info on who are honored guests, but Scott is taking it a step further and getting his own booth. We’re going to have our own booth (we won’t be set up with Image) and we are planning to make it our biggest splash in San Diego ever. We can spend more on the booth and stuff since we don’t have to worry about paying for airline tickets and hotel rooms. It’s a real honor and we’re very excited about next year. We’ve
Scott Kurtz, the genius behind PvP, kind of participated in the 24 Hour Comic Book Day. I say kind of, because he did take a break to go home and sleep before continuing.

I didn’t get as much done, but I’m much happier this year for having taken the break. This year he made an attempt at doing a long Batman story.
