For Immediate Release

The Monsterverse era of Halloween Man kicks off this week by revisiting one of the long-running webcomic’s fan-favorite stories. Cassie and Vlad from Tim Seeley’s Hack/Slash cross dimensions into Solar City to face off against elder gods, some very marvellous zombies, and finally… Halloween Man himself. Available for digital download for the first time, this horror/adventure epic features art by David Baldeon (Scarlet Spider, Marvel Zombies Christmas Carol) and a script by Halloween Man creator Drew Edwards.

New Dimension Comics recently celebrated their 25th anniversary, and Cassie Hack appears on their celebratory pint glasses which can be ordered here.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of New Dimension Comics, we asked a whole passel of artists who have visited us over the years to contribute to this jam piece.  It all started with Ron Frenz sketching the “NDC 25″ base with Superman, Thor, and Spider-man. Next, it got passed around to all these guys who added in : Karl Altstaeter, Patrick Block, George Broderick Jr., Dan Leister, Joe Linsner, Dave Nestler, Pat Olliffe, Jim Rugg, Tom Scioli, Tim Seeley, Loran Skinkis, Pittsburgh Steelman, and Chris Yambar.

revival19

Keep an eye out for this upcoming variant of REVIVAL 19.

Here it is! Our first variant cover for exclusive sale. Limited to 1000 copies, 500 copies will be released to selected retailers for sale domestically in the US and I will have 500 copies available at the Mercenary Art Studio booth in Dubai at the Middle East Film & Comic Con (MEFCC).

This cover was conceived of last year from a commission done for Moutaz Al Ghussein at the show last year and has been in the works for quite some time. I have to say it came out beautiful.

A homage to The Walking Dead #1. Revival #19 by Timothy Seeley and featuring art by Mike Norton. Colors by Mark Englert.

* Editor’s note – GBJR Toys and the previous related company (Shocker Toys) has a history of  delays and other issues.  Series 2 of Indie Spotlight was originally announced in 2008.  On the other hand, a preorder is only $23 shipped, so do your own research and weigh the risks and rewards.  Personally, I ordered one, if we get one, great!
