Pinball: A Graphic History of the Silver Ball by Jon Chad

Hello, Drop Target Fans!

🚨 JON CHAD HAS A NEW PINBALL GRAPHIC NOVEL!!! 🚨

It's called Pinball: A Graphic History of the Silver Ball and it will be out on April 5th, 2022 at bookstores, comic shops, and libraries everywhere!

Pinball: A Graphic History of the Silver Ball

Jon has a special deal going where if you pre-order the book from his local bookstore in California, he will send you an exclusive minicomic, a gocco-printed book plate, and a vinyl sticker for free!


Since Jon and I started our pinball journey together, we thought it would be fun to chat about the creation of his new book, and what we have been up to since we published the Drop Target Omnibus back in 2018. Our hour-long conversation covers topics such as: how this book came about, the challenges of drawing (and coloring) pinball machines, and some process "pro tips" for other cartoonists about how to efficiently use InDesign and Clip Studio Paint to create a graphic novel on a deadline.

Please help us spread the word about Jon's new book! Order an extra copy for one of your pinball pals, or get a few extras for giveaways at your next pinball tournament. Together we can make Pinball: A Graphic History of the Silver Ball the "Grand Champ" of pinball books 😎
