Press Release

TORONTO – Saturday Morning Webtoons www.saturdaymorningwebtoons.com (SMW), the all-ages webcomics portal, is pleased to add  the critically acclaimed THREE THIEVES by award-winning cartoonist Scott Chantler to its all-star line-up.

THREE THIEVES follows the adventures of Dessa Redd, teenage orphan, circus acrobat, and reluctant thief. Publishers Weekly calls the series “an entertaining and action packed new fantasy adventure that will appeal to fans of the genre.”

The first THREE THIEVES volume, TOWER OF TREASURE, the 2011 Shuster Award winner for Best Comic for Kids, will begin weekly serialization on Saturday, May 3rd.

“I got my start in webcomics back in 2000 when the idea was completely new,” says Chantler. “Since then I’ve wanted to return to the idea of having something online for free,” adds the celebrated cartoonist of TWO GENERALS. “It sure helped launch my career, and hopefully it will also bring a wider readership to Three Thieves.”

“Scott was one of the first people I approached about Saturday Morning Webtoons,” says writer J. Torres, founder of SMW, who collaborated with Chantler on the graphic novels DAYS LIKE THIS and SCANDALOUS for Oni Press. “I’m glad he’s finally joining us, and that he’s got the blessing and support of his publisher.”

Kids Can Press (KCP), publisher of the THREE THIEVES graphic novel series, is very enthusiastic about making this online offering. “We’re excited that THREE THIEVES is making its online debut with Saturday Morning Webtoons,” says Michaela Cornell, Communications Strategist for KCP. “It will bring even more young readers to this already well-loved and award-winning series.”

The official announcement of THREE THIEVES joining the SMW line-up will be made at the SMW panel this weekend at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival.

SMW updates its links every Saturday and points comic readers to some of the best kid-friendly webcomics around, brought to you by popular artists like J. Bone (GOBUKAN), Eric Orchard (ORCHARD OF LAUGHS), Stephanie Buscema (LITTLE TALES OF OTTO AND OLIVE), and Andi Watson (PRINCESS AT MIDNIGHT). The portal first opened in January of this year with weekly and bi-weekly webcomics for fans to follow, as well as a free comic “Download of the Month” feature.
