01Comics.Com announces that it has named A.P. Furtado as Creative Director for its web and print comic line.
“We’re really excited to have A.P. join our team,” said 01comics.com President Barry Gregory. “We were honored just to have a comic from him in our lineup of titles. Having him working alongside us as Creative Director is a huge coup for us.”
“As a creator I was thrilled to have my work displayed along side such great talents as Mitch Byrd, Randy Reynaldo, Jenni Gregory, Steven Butler, Christopher Mills, and so many other top notch creators,” said AP. Furtado. “As Creative Director, I now have the ability to further promote these great artists and their respective works to the world at large. 01Comics.Com is just beginning to pick up steam, and has a multitude of exciting projects and new creators coming to the site very soon. What we want to do is dispel the myth that webcomics and traditional print comics have to be a separate medium. We want to prove that the two can be merged into a viable and successful business model; one hand washing the other.â€

His new all ages fantasy comic Elf `n Troll is serialized Mondays and Wednesdays at 01Comics.Com and via the 01comics.com Tooncast Network.
