The website 411mania.com interviewed SMASH writer Chris A. Bolton about the origin of the comic, how it went from webcomic to print, what the future holds for Smash, and more! Read the interview here.
An oldie but goodie! Even before Book 1 was published, Chris and Kyle Bolton were thinking about Book 2.
Here's an early concept sketch from 2013 of Smash meeting Brute, one of the big bad guys from Book 2! Want to see how they get along in the finished version? Preorder your copy of Book 2: Fearless now!
SMASH Book 2 will have plenty of new villains to hiss at and root against. But it just wouldn't feel right if we didn't invite the biggest, baddest villain of them all to return and make life difficult for our ten-year-old superhero, Smash!
Just a quick update that Chris and Kyle are still hard at work on SMASH Book 2. And it's more than halfway finished! Here is a penciled panel from p. 92.
We're adjusted our Patreon rewards so there are more delicious goodies for readers who pledge $5 or more! Check out the treats below -- and if you're so inclined, support SMASH on Patreon.
With the money you pledge, we can keep making SMASH webcomics till the internet closes its doors and bids everyone a fond adieu.
We started SMASH in 2009 as a webcomic. Then, in 2013, it was published as a graphic novel, Smash: Trial by Fire, by Candlewick Press. The book has earned rave reviews and a bunch of awards, not to mention a legion of devoted fans, young and old alike.
Right now we're in the process of making Book 2 for Candlewick. And now we've relaunched the SMASH webcomic to keep our fans (and ourselves!) entertained during the long process of bringing a graphic novel to publication.
The new webcomic will feature internet-only "side" stories that fit alongside and in-between the books. You'll see Smash battling brand-new villains in fun, action-packed, fast-paced comics that are ideal for online reading -- and for all ages!
The webcomic updates every Tuesday on our Tumblr page, for a total of 4 pages per month, and is completely free to read. Come back each week for more Smashing excitement!
It's all about those details. (Coming Soon!)
