Pirate Club sets sail in February - 7/12/2003
What do you get when you take a kid single-mindedly obsessed with being a pirate in the modern world, a kid who is convinced that he's a bear and a crabby, one-handed garbage man? Only the most motley crew of crazy land-lubbers who ever sailed the high seas! In Pirate Club by Derek Hunter, SLG Publishing's first new ongoing series of 2004, the boys of the Pirate Club loot, pillage and generally cause mayhem, with their eyes on adventure and nary a moral quandary to trouble their sea-faring dreams.

Pirate Club comes straight from series creator Hunter's childhood. The real-life Pirate Club was a joke that Hunter and his friends cooked up to keep them entertained over the summer. Years later, Hunter and his friends, grown up and spending more time in front of the computer than in the great outdoors, decided to try to recapture what they had already started thinking of as "the good old days."

Designing Pirate Club t-shirts soon progressed to designing characters and developing a story. The resulting comic, Pirate Club, tells the story of John, a wannabe privateer trapped in circumstances of a decidedly un-piratey nature; Bearclaw, his first mate, who is convinced he is a bear; and Phil, a the garbage man who regales them with tall tales of the sea. When Phil gives the boys his old sailboat, the Pirate Club is on its way to becoming a full-fledged scourge of the high seas. (Read More)

Publication changes for Feather - 4/12/2003
Image Comics has announced changes in the publication of Steve Uy's FEATHER. Originally solicited as a six-issue miniseries, FEATHER is now a five-issue miniseries concluding with a 48-page one-shot in May. Solicitations for issue #4 (DEC03 1316 D2) incorrectly listed that issue as the conclusion of a four-part miniseries.

"Feather has NOT been shortened in any way," explained Uy. "The reason for this change will be quite evident upon issue #4's release: given the brutality of the storyline, it seems unfair to break up the final act of FEATHER into two separate issues, two months apart, so the final two issues will be amalgamated into one big issue #5. To do otherwise would have frustrated too many readers and would have done a disservice to the storytelling.

"Naturally, I urge all readers to pre-order this particular issue, since the heftier page count will necessitate a heftier price point, meaning retailers may be more hesitant to stocking it. And once the book is gone, well..."

FEATHER #4 is available for order now in the December issue of Previews and will go on sale in February.

FEATHER #3 is due in stores mid-December.

Brandon Peterson Exclusive with Marvel! - 24/11/2003
Superstar artist Brandon Peterson - who rose to industry fame as one of Top Cow's most popular artists and for the last few years served as an artist, Art Director and Vice President of CrossGen Entertainment - has signed an exclusive creator agreement with Marvel that will keep him with the House of Ideas through the year 2006.

Brandon will begin drawing covers on such key titles as ULTIMATE X-MEN and then move on to several high-profile new assignments that will be announced in the coming weeks.

"I've known Brandon for quite some time now, he is one of those rare talents that can do it all and he does it all at a Master's level," said Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. "He's also one of the most enthusiastic people I know and I'm thrilled that he's bringing that energy to Marvel.

"We have some amazing stuff planned for Brandon including the reinvention of a classic Marvel character that will have fans talking for years to come. There aren't many people in the comics industry that can draw with his ability and energy so I'm thrilled for us and for our fans everywhere that he'll be dedicating his amazing talents to the pantheon of Marvel Heroes."

"Over the last few years while occupied at another job, I've observed the incredible progress Marvel has made with the editorial leadership of Joe Quesada," said Peterson. "Marvel has really undergone a renaissance with things like Marvel Knights, the Ultimate universe, and the rejuvenation of the core titles. I appreciated from a distance the hard work and skill that they and everyone at Marvel have shown. (Read More)

Cheung & Pulido hunt Lady Death! - 21/11/2003
Here's the bad news: Your family, who would just as soon kill you as hug you, have conquered Europe. Your friends hate you, and your only allies are former foes. And when you're not fighting a guerilla war against the ruling forces, you're battling monsters and avoiding pockets of land that obey the laws of magic, not physics.

On the positive side, superstar artist Jim Cheung is now illustrating your adventures.

Such is the life of Lady Death, born of two bloodlines, yet belonging to neither. For the last year, writer Brian Pulido re-imagined his dark maiden, introducing the young woman named Hope to a new audience in the pages of LADY DEATH: A MEDIEVAL TALE. This March, former X-Force and Scion artist Jim Cheung joins Pulido as the series' timeline jumps forward an entire year, offering readers new visuals, new challenges, and new surprises in LADY DEATH: THE WILD HUNT.

"Perfect for lovers of dark-edged fantasy, THE WILD HUNT is crafted to shock existing fans while making complete sense to new readers," stated Pulido. "The story starts with medieval Europe now ruled by the Eldritch, an ancient magical race out to extinguish humanity, who they view as cockroaches. Even though they're outnumbered underdogs, it's up to Lady Death and her underground fighters to drive the supernatural race back through the rift they stormed through. But Hope's father was Eldritch and her mother was human. So while she looks Eldritch, Lady Death is hated by the very people she wants to save." (Read More)

Dr. Radium returns to SLG! - 17/11/2003
THE WORLD OF TOMORROW! The very phrase conjures images of excitement, adventure, and wonder. But, really, the future is Dullsville, a "perfect" society practically devoid of anything surprising or even all that interesting — except for the distracted, disaster-prone Dr. Radium, the last scientist left standing in a world that would slip completely into bland oblivion if he weren’t around to shake things up. Ignored by society and feared by his assistant, Dr. Radium pursues Science with happy disregard for knowledge, progress or safety in the classic SLG Publishing Dr. Radium comic books by Scott Saavedra. Dr. Radium's adventures first made their appearance in 1986, with It's Science with Dr. Radium, and Dr. Radium: Man of Science followed in 1992.

SLG Publishing is now pleased to announce that all of Dr. Radium’s manic, madcap Man of Science (mis)adventures will be collected into a single volume. Scheduled for release in January 2004, Dr. Radium Battles Phill, King of the Pill Bugs! assembles all five issues of the original Dr. Radium: Man of Science series, along with a previously unpublished story.
