CHICAGO, IL -- January 8, 2018 From the creators of the hit comic book series, Squarriors , comes a brand new webcomic: Cigarettes & Carrot Juice! Illustrator Ashley M. Witter (Squarriors, Doctor Aphra, Scorch, Interview with a Vampire) and writer Ash Maczko (Squarriors, Squarriors: The Card Game) deliver an intense webcomic lovingly described as “The Lost Boys meets The Warriors meets Riverdale.”

“Over the last year, we have been developing an original project that our friends and fans can follow as they wait for the painfully slow release of the Squarriors comics,” says Maczko, sharing his understanding regarding Squarriors’ delayed release schedule. “Cigarettes & Carrot Juice has an intentionally simplistic design that will allow Ashley and I to regularly release new content, even while we are on the road.”

With the success of Squarriors, Maczko and Witter frequently travel to attend comic conventions and share their projects and love of geek culture with fans. Since Cigarettes & Carrot Juice is a “completely independent project,” Maczko states they, “have the benefit of delivering uncensored, unflinching, and unapologetic content that Team Ash fans want and deserve.”

Cigarettes & Carrot Juice releases Valentine’s Day (2/14/2018) on multiple publishing sites like Smack JeevesTapas, & Line Webtoon! You can also follow the new series on Facebook and Tumblr.
