Who We Are

This web site is brought to you by H&P Publications, the business name for the publishing and web endeavors of Steve and April Pastis. Steve founded The Hellenic Calendar, the Greek-American newspaper for Southern California and the Great Southwest, in 1979 and the last issue was in 2004. Plans are to resume publication later this year.

H&P Publications has since acquired Cartoonist and Comic Artist and it will be back in publication soon.
