SHOOTING STAR COMICS ANTHOLOGY

Chuck Dixon is contributing an eight-page story to Shooting Star Comics Anthology.

"Eight pages to do whatever I want?" Dixon said. "It took less than a heartbeat to fix on a western. And by the time the heartbeat was over I was set on my old amigo Enrique Villagran for the art chores. Enrique brings everything to a western story you could want. You can smell the gun oil and hear the creak of the saddles. And when I asked him to model the lead character after Kirk Douglas he jumped on it. And the results are terrific. Taut action, period detail and muy macho action.

"When I showed the art boards around CrossGen a few of the artists here thought I'd picked up the original artwork on eBay from an old Atlas cowboy book from the '50s. High praise indeed."

In addition to Dixon's story, Dennis O'Neil delivers an original essay for the introduction to this book.

* Scott McCullar sends his Thrill Seekers out on a timely adventure. Yellow Jacket and the Emerald Mantis have to rescue their cohort, the Sacred Scarab from the evil Nazis. The Nazis are about to sacrifice the Scarab. Will the Thrill Seekers get there in time, or is this the end of the Sacred Scarab? "Rendezvous at the Temple of Khepri."

* Scott Rogers presents the debut of super hero and family man: Bedbug. Will the Bedbug get home to kiss his daughter goodnight when the Pulverizer stands in his way? The answer lies in "Bigger Things."

* Lance Stahlberg's Defender (visualized by Mariano de la Torre) lives in a world used to the presence of super heroes. As a second generation super hero, he assumes the art of being a hero will come second nature. However, he soon discovers while feverously working to rescue a busload of children, that the Bad Guys are always "Raising the Stakes."

* What do you do when you suddenly and unexpectedly become a super hero? Sean Taylor's Fishnet Angel goes looking for someone else who's been in the game longer than he has (that's right, he). Of course, being new to the job isn't the only problem the fishnet clad hero has. "Power" shows us the first lesson (drawn by JP Dupas).

* J. Morgan Neal's Aym Geronimo (with her Postmodern Pioneers) is out to better the world around her, no matter where in the world it will take her (and it takes her to some rather dangerous places). "Trap Dancing," co-written with Erik Burnham, and drawn by Todd Fox, takes Aym on a jungle adventure, where a "search for treasure" turns out to be a string of traps.

* "Mad Dogs and Irishmen" (penciled by J. David Bock, inked by Bill Wiist) gives readersa quick glimpse of Aym's greatest enemy. Riley's Irish charm runs very short when one of his operatives questions his obsession with Aym. Riley has a pointed response to being crossed. Finally,

* "Aym Radio" (illustrated by Fox) shows that it's easy for people safe at home to criticize on Aym's activities, but they're not the one out on a mountain cliff, rescuing a child.

* Mike Von Fange has a secret that not even his brothers know. No, it's not his power of being able to consume anything even moderately edible without himself feeling the effects (he can direct the effects at other people). It's a secret that's crucial to his existence, and someone unpleasant has found out about it. Can Mike put his blackmailer out of action without exposing his secret? Carlin Trammel, teams with artist Bill Wiist, for the answer in "Hunger For More".

* Perpetual victim of hazardous circumstances, Nick Landime has a close encounter of the mummified kind. He's been selected to be the unwilling host for the resurrection of an ancient evil wizard. Or so he says. Action! Adventure! Comedy! Futile attempts at hitting on women in sleazy bars. Erik Burnham asks you to "Remember the Alamas."

* It isn't easy being the son of a great Chieftain. Everyone keeps reminding "Tsalosha" about his father - when all he wants is to have an ordinary, happy life. But his rival Elrashke has decided the time has come to defeat and humiliate Tsalosha. But there is more to Tsalosha than meets the eye. Written by Sarah Beach, and drawn by Gordon Purcell, and inked by Terry Pallot.

Shooting Star Comics Anthology will be 80 pages and will cost $5.95.
