Hello Houdini Fans,
A quick little update from the desk of Sean and I concerning some huge news in the world of Houdini.
After Axel Alonso, Editor In Chief of Marvel Comics, decided to take us under his wing we have had a huge amount of attention drawn to our project.
During promotion of the latest edition of our book, we began talks with Alterna Comics in hopes to recruit them as our official publisher and distributor.
Quickly, Sean and I decided that this would be a perfect fit for us and have since signed contracts with Alterna Comics to provide us publishing, promotion and distribution.
What does that mean for you, our loyal fans?
It means that in a few months "The Secret Adventures of Houdini" will be in comics shops nation and world-wide!
In the coming months Sean and I will be adding about 25 pages to the current edition in order to set up some major story-lines for future issues and we will be tightening the art and material that is depicted in our current independently produced edition.
Finally, just as exciting as signing with Alterna, we have asked Marvel artist Michael Jared Dimotta to do the cover art for the published edition and he has happily obliged!
(Have a quick look at Michael's work and your jaw will take a quick trip to the floor, http://michaeldimotta.
So, to quickly sum up, we will be creating a whole new version of the pilot book we have independently released. Our comics will now be distributed nation and world-wide under the publisher Alterna Comics and a new version with incredible new art, a brand new cover drawn and conceived by Michael Jared Dimotta of Marvel Comics and a brand new 20 pages will be available as soon as the end of May 2012.
Stay tuned folks, 100 years later Houdini's adventures are only beginning.
P.S. Dont forget, "The Secret Adventures of Houdini" is being featured at The Museum of Cartoon and Comic Art 10th Annual festival at The Park Avenue Armory on April 28th and 29th. More details following the link below:
