|Courtney Crumrin finds frightening fame - 19/02/2003|
|Oni Press is pleased to announce that the first two issues of the Ted Naifeh miniseries, COURTNEY CRUMRIN & THE COVEN OF MYSTICS, have sold out. The new series continues the adventures of Courtney, a school girl with a knack for magic and mischief who finds herself living in a spooky suburb filled with witches, talking cats, and a variety of creepy creatures. THE COVEN OF MYSTICS builds on the stories from the first COURTNEY miniseries recently collected in the COURTNEY CRUMRIN & THE NIGHT THINGS trade paperback.|
"Ted and COURTNEY cast a glamour on everyone they come in contact with. People can't help but love her with a passion usually reserved for another spell-casting student," said Oni Press publisher Joe Nozemack. "Comic stores quickly gobbled up the first two issues' overprint, and when national retail chain Hot Topic placed an order for almost half the initial print run of each issue, we had no choice but to go back to press to meet the tremendous demand both inside and outside the direct market."
"We knew based on the reaction to the first miniseries that 2003 was going to be a great year for COURTNEY," added series editor James Lucas Jones. "Ted's enthusiasm for his craft and these characters is as contagious as a cold!"
"This is just the beginning of the things starting to happen with COURTNEY," Nozemack concluded. "Ted and Oni have all sorts of magical new plans for this girl and her ghouls that will be announced in the next few months".
|Mystique kicks off Tsunami DotComic week - 18/02/2003|
|Since the April, 2003 'First Wave' of Marvel Tsunami titles were announced, readers and retailers have been asking for more information about and art from MYSTIQUE, SENTINEL, HUMAN TORCH, RUNAWAYS, VENOM and NAMOR. |
Marvel has heard the requests and has responded. Monday, February 17th kicks off Marvel's TSUNAMI DOTCOMIC WEEK, 5 days of special previews of April's new series launches. It begins with an 8-page preview of MYSTIQUE, a new ongoing series by writer Brian K. Vaughan and penciler Jorge Lucas, starring the seductive shape-shifter & sometimes X-Men adversary.
The previews are being picked to present key moments from each of the debut issues to give readers a sense of the unique voice creators like Vaughan & Lucas are bringing to these diverse, easily-accessible new titles.
"The best part of James Bond flicks is almost always the opening sequence, an action-packed finale to a mysterious prior mission," said Vaughan of the preview. "This dotComic is definitely an homage to those classic scenes, but with an important twist. Because Mystique is the world's greatest master of disguise, readers will never know which character is her. She's a sexy femme fatale who can be anything you want her to be... except predictable."
The MYSTIQUE preview can be read right now at http://dotcomics.marvel.com/lib/launchissue.php?issue=151&wsid=, and issue #1 goes on sale April 23rd.
Look for a new April TSUNAMI dotComic preview every day this week.
|Mutant, Texas trade paperback mapped out - 17/02/2003|
|This April will see the release of the collected version of Paul Dini and J. Bone’s all-ages adventure tale, MUTANT, TEXAS: TALES OF SHERIFF IDA RED. Originally published as a four-issue miniseries, the story focuses on Jingle Belle’s superpowered pal and how she came to be the law in her town. Populated with a cast as diverse and fantastic as any comics has seen, MUTANT, TEXAS is a whimsical return to the fun punch-ups between good and evil that the medium was built on, as well as showing that the world still has heroes.|
“When I first started tinkering with the idea of a town full of mutants,” Dini explained, “I saw it as a limitless playground. Anything goes here. The place was originally called Mystic, but a host of nuclear calamities changed all that—just as it changed the townspeople, critters, and plant life into something other than what they started out as. Be it a talking armadillo or a shrinking little girl, nothing is abnormal in a town like Mutant.”

|Ghosts and goblins and beasties, oh my! Uninvited guests are bad enough. When they turn out to be demons and ghouls from unknown dimensions, they’re real trouble. This is the predicament Wren, the sassy and fearless heroine of SLG Publishing’s new quarterly series, Outlook: Grim by new talent Black Olive, finds herself in as she must face off against supernatural forces that she accidentally invited into her home. The ghoulies definitely have wicked intentions, but they completely lack social graces, and Wren is more annoyed than terrified. Will she rid her house of these uncouth invaders?
