Read Demonwars #1 for free! - 13/05/2003
The first issue of R.A. SALVATORE'S DEMONWARS: TRIAL BY FIRE, the adventure that expands the famed fantasy writer's best-selling series of novels, is now available at CrossGen's comicsontheweb.com. As with all of CrossGen's first issues, DEMONWARS: TRIAL BY FIRE #1 can be read online for free.

"With the TRIAL BY FIRE graphic novel now available, and with the first issue of EYE FOR AN EYE just reaching comics shops, this is a great way for readers to enter R.A. Salvatore's amazing world," said DEMONWARS editor Ron Marz.

R.A. SALVATORE'S DEMONWARS: TRIAL BY FIRE is the first comic book that further explores the New York Times best-selling author's fantasy series. Scripted by novelist Scott Ciencin and drawn by Ron Wagner, the five-issue saga stars the barbarian Ranger Andacanavar, one of the most popular continuing characters from Salvatore's novels. When the wild-haired warrior uncovers a plot to wipe mankind from the face of Corona, Andacanavar, along with the heroic Abellican nun Moira and the devious Red Cap Dwarf Grave Mungo, must face the magic-wielding Frost Giants and their terrifying demonic masters. The Traveler-sized graphic novel, which features a new cover by Brandon Peterson, also contains a brand new short story by Salvatore, with spot illustrations by Butch Guice.

The first issue of R.A. SALVATORE'S DEMONWARS: EYE FOR AN EYE, penciled by superstar-in-the-making Greg Tocchini, is now on sale.

Sentinel 1 & 2 newest Marvel Must-Have - 11/05/2003
Sean McKeever and UDON's SENTINEL was the first Marvel Tsunami title to make its debut last month, so fittingly, it'll be the first Tsunami title to receive a MARVEL MUST HAVES collection. But the series isn't being collected solely for being first ... it earned its MUST HAVES on merit.

Due to hit stores on 6/4 - the week before SENTINEL #3 goes on sale - the 48-page Marvel Must Haves: Sentinel 1 & 2 collects the series' first two sold-out issues, to help introduce even more new readers to the highly-accessible, critically-acclaimed new series. And to further encourage new readers to give the series a try, beginning with SENTINEL #3, the series' cover price will be dropped from $2.99 to $2.50!

"Making the first two issues available again to anyone who wants to read them was one way to show support for Sean and UDON's efforts," said Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. "But SENTINEL is quickly becoming a favorite new title for everyone here at Marvel, so we decided to go that extra mile and show readers how strongly we believe in it by lowering the price."

Rolston & Oni offer cure for one bad day - 1/05/2003
On August 20th, Oni Press is getting out of the wrong side of the bed with ONE BAD DAY, a new original graphic novel from Eisner Award-winning creator Steve Rolston. ONE BAD DAY may be a rotten time for Marie, but it's a great time for readers!

"I've been friends with Steve since before either of us had an association with Oni," said editor James Lucas Jones. "We both started here at about the same time and over the last three years I've had the opportunity to watch Steve evolve into one of the industry's brightest young storytellers. He's picked his collaborators with care, and in return some of comics' most talented writers have employed Steve to bring their creations to life. Now Steve is breaking out on his own and the results are as pulse-pounding as you'd expect."

Marie's had bad days before—she's slept through her alarm, had her car break down at the most inopportune moment, forgotten about an important assignment until five minutes before it was due. You know, just had one of those times where the whole universe seems to be against you. Well, that's all going to seem like a walk in the park after today. She's about to be chased, shot at, sexually harassed, and guilted into going to her unbearable cousin's birthday party, and she doesn't even know why! Well, maybe she knows why she has to go the birthday party (her mom is an expert guilt-tripper), but that doesn't mean she has to put up with all the other stuff! (Read More)

Tupelo, the Worlds Greatest Junkie Superhero, Comes to SLG - 30/04/2003
In 1977, Captain Tupelo and the 11 O' Clock Man were part of the Famous Monsters, the band that ruled New York City's punk scene. Now, they have resurfaced, patrolling the streets of Greenwich Village in a beat-up cab and defending the city's homeless and oppressed. Captain Tupelo, the World's Forgotten Boy, has become the World's Greatest Junkie Superhero.

SLG Publishing's new bi-monthly series, Tupelo by Matt DeGennaro and Phil Elliott, tells the story of Captain Tupelo and the 11 O'Clock Man, sliding between the past, when the boys played to riotous slam-dance pits at the club Zero Hour, and the present, when they cruise the streets of New York City, avenging the wrongs that the pretentious and privileged commit against the poor and unfortunate. Committed to shaking up the status quo, the Captain and the 11 O'Clock Man inevitably attract the attention of those who maintain it. After attacking a television producer, they fall into the sights of Boz Williams, a television psychic whose abilities are suspect, but whose connections are powerful.

The 11 O'Clock Man and Captain Tupelo make an unlikely pair. While the 11 O'Clock Man, who got his start as a street punk handing out revolutionary tracts, is cool and cynical, Captain Tupelo still sees the world with a fresh-faced optimism. "Despite all the anarchy he's seen?and propagated?he's still an innocent," said writer Matt DeGennaro of the Captain. On the other hand, he said of the 11 O'Clock Man, "His personal motto is 'Destroy What Bores You on Sight.'" (Read More)

Top secret past of Paul Crocker revealed in Queen & Country TPB - 23/04/2003
This July Greg Rucka, Brian Hurtt, and Oni Press are going back in time with the trade paperback collection of QUEEN & COUNTRY: DECLASSIFIED! No need to dig out your parachute pants and Flock of Seagulls records though. No, all you need for this trip is a love of Cold War spies and an affinity for the delicate balance of politics and action that made Rucka’s QUEEN & COUNTRY a critical and commercial success.

"While QUEEN & COUNTRY was always supposed to be Tara’s story, it was obvious from the start that Paul Crocker was the other break-out character," commented Oni Press editor in chief Jamie S. Rich. "Back when he was drawing the second arc of the regular series, artist Brian Hurtt suggested that we should take a look at how Crocker became the bastard he is today. At that point Greg knew we just had to do our first QUEEN & COUNTRY spin-off. More than that, we knew who had to draw it. Brian turned a creative corner during DECLASSIFIED, transforming from a talented artist honing his craft into a great storyteller capable of just about anything he put his mind to." (Read More)

Crossgen offers a slashed price, a new writer, and a new story arc to invite readers to try one of the industry's best looking series!

For less than it costs to get past most tollbooths, you can journey with Arwyn, one of the most gorgeous--and toughest--heroes in comics today.

SOJOURN, featuring the critically-acclaimed art of penciler Greg Land, inker Jay Leisten, and colorist Justin Ponsor, tells the story of Arwyn, a beautiful but haunted archer seeking revenge for the murder of her family. Joined by a one-eyed scoundrel named Gareth and her trusty dog Kreeg, the vengeful warrior hunts for the shattered weapon that can bring down Mordath, the ruthless despot who has devastated her world. Issue #25 of the high fantasy series opens as Arwyn, captured by Mordath's bloodthirsty soldiers, must consider seeking aid from Bohr, the determined but noble troll captain charged with capturing Arwyn herself! Surrounded and outnumbered, the former foes will have to fight together... or die together! (Read More)
