House of Twelve

House of Twelve is an independent anthology comic book publisher based out of the New York metro area and run by artist Cheese Hasselberger. Known as Ho12, it sponsors a monthly comic art collective held the first Friday of every month at Jack Demsey's Pub on 33rd Street in New York City, New York, they have been running since August 2001. House of Twelve was formed by Cheese Hasselberger, Chris Prynoski, Goat Reinecker and Jody Scheaffer in the fall of 2000; the four had been a part of a loose art collective at The School of Visual Arts in the early 1990s. After working for years on various projects, most notably Downtown, they came together once more to do the first issue of the comic. On the House of Twelve website, Cheese describes the origins of the group: Way back in the early'90s me and some college buddies had a loosely knit art collective that helped each other out on various school assignments. We called ourselves the House of Twelve. Years some of us regrouped to do the first issue of the comic, the name stuck.

Since the group has evolved and grown to the beast she is today. Sometimes there are less 12 more. House of Twelve #1 contains four stories featuring characters trying to get to the much heralded House of Twelve, a thinly veiled metaphor for heaven; the four stories were experiments in violent masturbation jokes. Ho12 #1 was scheduled to debut at the Small Press Expo of 2001, but the event was canceled on account of the September 11th, 2001 attacks only three days prior; the release was delayed until SPX 2002. Mauled! #1 is an anthology comic book with each story being a fictionalized account of actual animal attacks at zoos. Manual Comics publisher Brian Musikoff and Cheese Hasselberger had been friends for years when Brian approached Hasselberger about publishing Mauled!. They decided on co-publishing the book to make use of Brian's research and Cheese's artist contacts. House of Twelve Ver. 2.0 was a relaunch of the book. Featuring an extended line-up of artists and a more mainstream theme, science fiction, the book came out to varied reviews and decent sales.

It debuted at the Small Press Expo in the fall of 2003. The book featured the work of House of Twelve staple artists such as Brian Musikoff, Miss Lasko-Gross, Kevin Colden, Dave McKenna, Jenny Gonzalez and Evan Forsch as well as many others.'House of Twelve #3's theme is obscenity. It contains stories ranging from divine masturbation to child abuse. Created as a knee jerk reaction to the gentrification of American media, its over the top content garnered excellent reviews. Along with the regular contributors it features the work of David Paleo, Victor Cayro, Jay Marcy, Nick Jeffrey and Ryan Snook; the book debuted at the Small Press Expo in 2004. Initial sales were greater than expected, so much so it got the attention of Diamond Comic Distribution and in January 2005 was distributed nationally. Sales slumped after the launch. After a three-year hiatus, Ho12's flagship title returned with the 68 page House of Twelve Goes to War, it features many of the same contributors along with fan favorites Mike Chris Radtke.

It was released at the 2007 Small Press Expo. The next issue was published in 2009 as an all ages comic, a series first. Contributors include: Kevin Colden, Miss Lasko-Gross, Jenny Gonzalez-Blitz, K. Thor Jensen, Dave McKenna, Kate Lacour, FuFu Frauenwhal, Chris Garrison, Frank Reynoso, Evan Forsch, Darryl Ayo, Cheese Hasselberger, Nick Jeffrey, Brian Musikoff& Rodá. Ho12 Presents is a series of movie parody comics produced annually. A variation of the 24-hour comic concept, the books are created in an afternoon by the collective during the Ho12 Barbecue; the artists are broken up into four randomly generated teams and work together to create separate four-page stories, a connecting story is created to string the stories together. They are published as mini-comics and given away as promotional books at conventions and appearances; the first of the Ho12 mini's, is based on the classic Japanese story "Rashomon". Its resemblance is loose, keeping the basic story of three people going into the woods and only two coming out, a trial, it leaves the reader wondering what happened.

For consistency the characters were culled from images found on The Live Journal Random Image Generator, an internet script that pulls the last 30 images posted on Livejournal.com. It introduces the character of Billy Kramer, a long-haired, heavy metal guitar player who has become an unofficial mascot of sorts; the book was nominated for an Ignatz Award for best debut comic at the 2005 Small Press Expo. A parody of the 1980s animated feature Heavy Metal, the mini comic is a sequel to the movie featuring the return of the Loc-Nar and it again telling tales of its corruptive powers; the book again featured four stories and a surrounding story, but the characters were created extemporaneously instead of based on real people. It was again nominated for an Ignatz Award for the best debut comic at the 2006 Small Press Expo. Another parody of a 1980s classic film, The Breakfast Club; the book tells the stories of why the characters were sent to the detention that the movie is based around. It was created on May 28, 2007 and was scheduled for release in autumn 2007.

In the spring of 2010 House of Twelve began releasing digital comics for Comixology's Comics app for iPods, iPhones and iPads. Despite the title, the book came out quarterly the first year; the first issue features Miss Lasko-Gross, Sam Henderson, K. Thor Jensen and Darryl
