New Reveals! New Merch! New-sletter! (CHAIN MAIL #7)
YOUR WEEKLY KLC PRESS NEWSLETTER!
Welcome back to…
Hey folks, it’s the Supple Boiz, Ethan S. Parker and Griffin Sheridan here. We’re back to catch you up on all the latest developments in the awe-inducing world of KLC PRESS! Also, did you see what we did with that title? We are truly operating on some sort of higher level.
This was another huge week for KLC PRESS, as we are finally chugging full steam ahead when it comes to reveals about one of our former TWO NEW MYSTERY COMICS SERIES… Now known to all as THE SCHLUB!
We previously announced that the incredible TYRELL CANNON would be penciling the book, but our lips were sealed when it came to who Ryan Stegman’s co-writer on the series would be! Many of you have been speculating ever since… And many of you were correct!
This week, we finally dropped the bomb in a brand-new special edition of STEG-MAN AND HIS AMAZING FRIENDS…
THAT’S RIGHT, CHAIN GANG!
We’re proud to announce that your next big KLC Press comics series will be co-written by Stegman and our great friend KENNY PORTER! In the podcast, the team drop some of our first details on the series, plus they discuss the origins of the book and their process of collaboration! Check it out by clicking HERE or on Kenny’s head above!
But this is just the beginning, folks! So much more SCHLUB is coming your way, so stick around for the end of the newsletter if you want a tantalizing tease!

STEG-MAN AND HIS AMAZING IDEAS DON’T BLEED
Been enjoying the latest show on the AMAZING FRIENDS PODCAST NETWORK? We hope so! But if not, and it’s due to a lack of Ryan Stegman, fear not!
This week, Ashcan Press’ IDEAS DON’T BLEED had its first-ever livestream show, in which Matt Rosenberg and the Supples were joined by the man himself! There was plenty of process discussion, both on the art and writing side of things, and our lovely audience submitted some great questions! Chip was in the chat, but we didn’t have to look at him, so it was fine!
Check it out at the image below, and make sure to subscribe to ASHCAN PRESS for more!
HOW TO MAKE COMICS THAT AREN’T BORING!
Fun fact: We host a weekly art instructional series here on KLC Press where you can submit your questions on social media using the hashtag #STEGMANSPEAKS and have those questions answered on the show by the man himself! Sounds good, right? Yes!
This week’s Stegman comics-art knowledge bomb was all about rendering non-action scenes in the most interesting ways possible! Ryan doesn’t even know the word boring. Use it and he’ll become confused and attack you.
Check it out by clicking the image below! Or the one above! Or HERE! It’s like a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure!
BONUS: THE HOTTEST AND STEAMIEST STEGMAN ART OF THE WEEK
Here at KLC Press, we love to keep the Chain Gang up to speed on all the mind-blowing work Ryan cranks out on a regular basis. He’s a pretty humble guy, so we show off for him.
Below are some of our favorite pieces Steglord dropped this week! From left to right:
Ryan’s pencils for the cover of VANISH #3!
Cover pencils for Sabretooth and the Exiles #2!
And finally the bananas new variant cover for Venom #12!
