- Yes, folks, I'm delighted to announce that the debut story arc of Red Panda comics, which debuted digitally to great acclaim from Monkeybrain Comics, is getting a print edition from IDW Publishing! I understand that the release date for comics shops is Feb 15th, and the solicitations aren't out for that month quite yet, so your local comics shop may not yet know what you're talking about... (by all means, do pester them into carrying it, just not quite yet)
- HOWEVER, it seems to be turning up all over the place for pre-order through "regular" bookstores, and there are some awesome pre-order deals that I thought I would pass along.

- Wayne Hall, of Wayne's Comics, recently interviewed Gregg Taylor about Mask of the Red Panda.

Check it out at majorspoilers.com, or through your preferred podcatcher.

- Red Panda: The Full-Cast Video Comic was fully funded with nearly triple the support needed. Not only does this guarantee the production of the Video Comic and some "home video" of the recording process, it also met the "stretch goal" for more issues of the comic! We look forward to more news as it becomes available.

- Exciting news from Mask of the Red Panda creators Gregg Taylor and Dean Kotz of a new project that brings the heroes of DRT's Red Panda Adventures to life as never before!
- Even as we speak, a Kickstarter campaign is running to support Mask of the Red Panda: The Full-Cast Video Comic "An exciting shotgun wedding of the awesome sequential art of "Mask of the Red Panda" and the voice cast of Decoder Ring Theatre!" You can learn more about this project, support its creation and get yourself a copy for your dining and dancing pleasure by visiting the Kickstarter Page
- The initial funding goal was reached in less than 18 hours, so this is happening, gang - get on board! But the best news is that proceeds from this project above production costs and reward fulfilment will be used to support the development of more all-new Red Panda comics, so this is win-win-win!
- Visit the Kickstarter Page today, and claim yourself some awesome Red Panda rewards!

- If you haven't heard Red Panda Adventures #70 - The Wild West yet, you should listen before you look, 'cause this baby has some major spoilers, but it's a beauty. This special "lobby card" was done for us by Thomas Perkins, who did the cover for Tales of the Red Panda: The Android Assassins. You can get a super high-rez version on the members page... or you could just share and enjoy this one, which is pretty darn nice too!
- 5 March, 2011 - Pulp Ark Award
- This has been quite a season... first the Parsec Award, then the Podcast Award and now the very first Pulp Ark Award! That's right folks, if you have been waiting to pick up the all-new pulp fiction adventures of the Red Panda and the Flying Squirrel until they could accurately be called "Award Winning", then wait no longer! Tales of the Red Panda: The Android Assassins has won Best Book and Best Cover Art in the 2011 Pulp Ark Awards! A picture of the shiny plaque will follow... and congrats to Thomas Perkins for winning with his fantastic cover art!
- 30 January, 2011 - E-Book
- Well, you asked for it...Well, a lot of you did anyway. Since the Tales of the Red Panda novels started appearing, folks have been asking for e-book editions. I held off for a while, but the format doesn't seem to be going away... so here we go. I've gone with Smashwords, since they'll make the books available in many different formats and eventually ship to all of the individual e-bookstores. But frankly, I'd rather you ordered from the Smashwords site directly, as it involves rendering to fewer Caesars, if you take my meaning. So if you're one of the e-reader set, shop away! Here's the link to the first volume - available now! Tales of the Red Panda: The Crime Cabal e-book edition!

- Red Panda Adventures (63) -The King of Crime
They say that crime knows no loyaties, and there is no honour among thieves. Certainly, for a nation at war, any attack upon the forces of law and order may be seen as an act of treason. But what if crime were a nation onto itself? A force of nature, bound only by its own harsh rules? Could even the Red Panda prevent the reign of... The King Of Crime?

- And the winner is...
...Us apparently! Decoder Ring Theatre was up against some very strong competetion in this year's Parsec Awards and came out on top with this shiny piece of hardware to show for it! The Parsec Awards are given annually to recognize excellence in Speculative Fiction Podcasting, and we couldn't be more thrilled to have won this year's award for Best Audio Drama (Long Form). Sadly after a crazy weekend at FanExpo the week before, we weren't up for drive to Atlanta for the festivities at DragonCon. One of these years.....

- Red Panda Adventures (62) - The Home Team
There may not be an ideal time to learn that one of the Red Panda's deadliest foes has escaped custody, but this certainly isn't it. The Red Panda and the Flying Squirrel may only have hours to prevent the Mistress of the Undead from departing for Berlin and if they fail, can an invasion of the dead be far behind? And all of that before they even deal with ... The Home Team!

- Red Panda Adventures (61) - The Nose For News
More than a year has passed since the Occult War was lost, and little has gone well for those who stand against the forces of darkness. Many nations are now in Nazi hands, and the shadow of occupation hangs heavily over the remaining free people of Europe. Closer to home, saboteurs and traitors now lurk in the shadows which once sheltered criminal scum, and only one man can stand against them. The Red Panda may have lost much of his army of justice, but he still has an iron will, the strength of ten and most of all... The Nose For News!

- Red Panda Adventures (60) - The Great Fall
For years now, the self-appointed guardians of the unearthly powers that remain in this world have fought a running battle, trying to hold back the forces of darkness as personified by Nazi Germany. While the world has slept, a great Occult War has been fought all around us. Now it is over.
Only one thing can now prevent that loss from being total, and a thousand years of darkness from descending upon the Earth like a plague. Will even the Red Panda be left standing after The Great Fall?
