Drew Ford created an archive line of comic books and graphic novels at Dover Books before setting himself up as It's Alive Press. Recently, Drew Ford promoted a crowdfunding campaign to revive the eighties black-and-white comic book series, Fish Police, posting;

As IT'S ALIVE! continues moving towards the return of FISH POLICE, we wanted to show you all some (WIP) ALL-NEW wrap-around covers by Steve Moncuse! First one posted here. And (as I said before) with the coming addition of Ronda Pattison's gorgeous colors (which we will post once they are completed), this book is gonna rock (again)! It came from the 1980's! Spread the word!

There have been some issues with fulfilment of late at It's Alive Press, but I hope those with such issues can put them on hold for now. We wish Drew and Kiki our best wishes and hope that the medical staff can find an answer.
