From the press release:
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.”
Yet another benefit to building up a body of work — you can use the earlier volumes to promote the newer ones. I’m glad more people are getting the chance to read this series for free, although I’m sure it’ll be a nail-biter waiting for more adventure-laden pages to come online.
