Official Press Release

Two previously-published titles, PLASTIC FARM by Rafer Roberts and

NANTUCKET BROWN ROASTERS by Jason Asala, will be debuting this October

from Ambrosia Publishing. Both titles are scheduled to begin their

online serialization this fall with the collected versions being

published in early 2008.

PLASTIC FARM was originally published by creator Rafer Roberts and ran

for 12-issues where it garnered praise from such creators as Dave

(CEREBUS) Sim and Larry (AiT/PlanetLar) Young. Planned as a continuing

series, PLASTIC FARM follows the life of a man named Chester and his

slow descent into complete insanity, and chronicles how that madness

reshapes the world around him. Chester has had a rough childhood, has

a magic cowboy that rides a dinosaur living inside of his head, and is

now, late in life, sitting in a nameless airport bar during a blizzard

telling his life story to a group of people who really couldn't care


Jason Asala's NANTUCKET BROWN ROASTERS (now simply known as ROASTERS)

is an eccentric, innovative fable of action, fantasy, and weird

fiction starring Fish, a bluegill possessed by a 6,000-year-old evil

pharaoh, Ahab, a one-legged, spear-wielding strongman in a new body,

and Daisy, a living doll. The first previously-published NANTUCKET

BROWN ROASTERS mini-series will be serialized and published by

Ambrosia Publishing. We are introduced to Ahab, Daisy and Fish, who

become the core of the Roasters as well as learn about Khufu and his

crazy schemes of world domination, and oatmeal cookies.

Both PLASTIC FARM and NANTUCKET BROWN ROASTERS will begin their online

serialization at Ambrosia Publishing beginning this October.
