September 27th, 2018 – New York, NY— ComiXology, Amazon’s premier digital comics service, reunites with Comix AF to announce the newest addition to the comiXology Originals lineup: Fair Trade. Debuting spring of 2019, Fair Trade is written by Tini Howard (Magdalena: Seventh Sacrament, Poseidon IX, The Secret Loves of Geek Girls, Oath Anthology) and illustrated by Eryk Donovan (MEMETIC, The House in the Wall, The Super Mario Bros. 2, In the Dark Anthology).

To celebrate this announcement, Eryk Donovan will be at New York Comic Con signing limited quantities of the exclusive Fair Trade poster at the comiXology Artist Alley table #1B5.

Writer Tini Howard says, “Set in a city whereinspiration is the black market du jour, muses who call themselves the Moonfly Mafia have the power to inspire humans…and the wisdom to never give a good thing away for free. And when our hero Margot steps on their turf, she starts learning a few things, too. This is a book for magical girls-gone-bad.”

A series for magical girls-gone-bad!

From creators Tini Howard and Eryk Donovan, Fair Trade is a classic mafia-style story of a blooming prodigy with more skill than good sense, set in a city where inspiration is the trade and magic colors outside the lines.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
