GAME ON! COMICS of Vienna, Virginia is proud to announce a partnership with creator Jamie Cosley to publish comic books featuring Cosley's All-Ages creation, CODY THE CAVALIER. Game On! Comics opened in December 2011 following the closure of Nova Comics earlier that year. In less than two years, Game On! has become one of Northern Virginia's most popular stops for comics and gaming. Owner Louis Meyer said “We are always exploring new possibilities for our business, and we are so excited about publishing! Even better, to join forces with a creator of Jamie’s caliber and such a great character as Cody the Cavalier!"
Jamie Cosley, an artist and creator with years of experience, emerged onto the National scene with his 2010 webcomic CODY THE CAVALIER (codythecavalier.com), recently named One of Five Web Comics You Missed” by MTVGeek. Cosley has published collections of CODY cartoons available through Amazon or at Cosley's convention appearances and store signings.
