Luke Perry might always be linked to Beverly Hills 90210, but the 35-year old has had an eclectic career, from doing the voice of Rick Jones in The Incredible Hulk animated series to playing a rodeo cowboy in 8 Seconds to starring in The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Broadway.

Perry is currently starring in Showtime's comics-inspired Jeremiah and appeared in a panel at Wizard World Chicago last weekend.

Following are Moonstone Books solicitations for November, with information coming from the company.



Written by Stefan Petrucha, art by Kirk Van Wormer, cover by Tim Seelig.

Moonstone opens its new line of crime books. He's a safe-cracker, an ex-con, but as always, Boston Blackie is misunderstood. At an extravagant costume ball, a jewel heist goes horribly wrong. The five-year-old son of the wealthy Greene family dissapears, is presumed dead, and all fingers point to Boston Blackie as the main suspect. The body is never found, and seven years later BB is still haunted by what happened that night. He's drawn back into the case, and finds that his memory and the truth of what happened that night lay deep and distorted in a watery grave.

48 pages, black and white, $5.50.


Written by Dave Ulanski, art by Art Nichols, colored by Ken Wolak, cover by Doug Klauba.

Inspired by the H.G. Wells classic, the legend of the Invisible Man that once haunted the small English town of Iping is revisited. Nearly 100 years after the passing of the insane genius, his long-hidden journals are rediscovered, and their secrets unlocked. The books make their way from proper old England to Birch Station, Indiana... where their owner attempts to recruit the aid of the great-nephew of the legendary Invisible Man to duplicate the experiements from a century past. But what is unleashed on the unsuspecting town is not only a new disappearing mystery antagonist... but quite possibly another madman, as well. Are they necessarily one and the same, or is more going on here than meets the eye? Will the intentions of the Invisible Man be carried out... or will the authorities of Birch Station see through him before it's too late?

48 pages, $6.95.


The First #21 will arrive in stores on Wednesday from CrossGen Comics. The issue is written by Barbara Kesel, penciled by Andy Smith, inked by Brad Vancata and colored by Jason Lambert.

Here's how CrossGen describes the issue:

"Long ago, Trenin used the right bait to bring Tulity out of hiding; it's all a matter of knowing what your adversary wants. Persha's doing some baiting of her own, although her target is more elusive than Seahn."

The First #21 will be 32 pages and will cost $2.95.



Elektra: Glimpse & Echo #1 will arrive in stores on July 17 from Marvel Comics. The issue is written by Scott Morse, with art and cover by Morse.

Elektra: Glimpse & Echo #1 will be 32 pages and will cost $3.50.
