Back in April 2003, Digital Webbing started publishing all-new stories of the indy favorite by creator Jim Harris and illustrated by Cal Slayton. A trade paperback collection was published reprinting the original series to help bring readers up to speed.
Well, we’re happy to announce the return of Shades of Blue in digital format. Who would have thought digital comics would take off like this? Not a publishing company with the name “Digital” in their name, would it? Ha!
Look for Shades of Blue (and several other titles soon to be announced) on ComiXology.
And coming soon, our fan-favorite anthology Digital Webbing Presents will experience a DIGITAL EVOLUTION and return as a digital series with all-new original material!

Well, luck is on our side. This issue of Fist of Justice didn’t look like it was gonna happen due to low overall orders of the issue. This series has been a battle since the get-go. There just aren’t enough readers reserving the title with their local comic shops.
Anyways, our Diamond rep got the order to cancel the book but pushed for distribution because of our recent FCBD edition. Of course this means it may be the last issue distributed through the distributor. It may also be the last issue in single issue print form.
We’ve been working on the series for a while now and have up to issue #8 finished and are starting development on #9 as I type this. How are we going to get these issues out, you ask? Well, we’ve signed a deal to get FOJ on the iPhone/iPod through the Apple Store. We’re also thinking about collecting the issues into once or twice a year trade paperback releases. More details to follow.
The sixth issue of Fist of Justice is scheduled for a September release. Will we nail it? Of course! Know why? Becuase the issue is already drawn and colored. We’re currently working on issue #7 at the moment.
Our hopes are to keep FOJ out there every other month for as long as we can keep getting distributed. So if you’re a fan of the series — you NEED to have your local shop order these for you.
Here’s the solicit info for this issue:
A blast from Marc Mason’s past shows up and turns on the heat. Because you demanded it! The return of Blaze! And just who is this old man claiming to know who Fist of Justice really is? Trust us when we say, he’s going to change Fist of Justice’s life forever!

Plot: Fist of Justice returns to crime fighting after 30 years of being locked away in an asylum. Upon returning to Charm City he discovers a new Fist of Justice has taken his place and this one isn’t so nice.
This was a very interesting read, as the story for Fist of Justice has been thoroughly thought out and developed to create a complex look at the superhero genre. Spanning 30 years through continuity we see what happens when a hero fails and the repercussions of him giving up. It’s nothing groundbreaking, but its fun nonetheless.
