ASPEN LAUNCHES SOULFIRE: CHAOS REIGN

Aspen Comics has scheduled Aug. 16 for the launch of its latest mini-series, Soulfire: Chaos Reign.

"The story get backs to the primal days of magic, sort of a King Kong meets Soulfire book," Aspen's Michael Turner said.

The mini-series is written by J.T. Krull, with pencils by Marcus To, inks by Jason Gorder and Don Ho and colors by David Moran.

Here's how Aspen describes the first issue:

"In a time long past, when the world was still young and primitive, magic thrived in this untamed land. And just how it had always been, man and creature held true to the same common desire, survival! But, a deadly new threat has emerged from the shadows, looking to claim the planet's raw magical power, and they won't let anyone or anything, stand in their way!"

Here's how Top Cow describes the book:

"Jackie Estacado, the Darkness bearer, Wolverine have never met, but the same cannot be said for the Darkness power and Wolverine. The sins of Jackie's grandfather haven't been forgotten, and Jackie's left to pay the price."

The book is part of the recent Top Cow/Marvel deal, which includes Kirkham working on Marvel's new Phoenix mini-series.

According to Top Cow's Matt Hawkins, the deal is going so well that there are already talks of extended it past its original three-year length.

SLG PUBLISHING'S AGNES QUILL

SLG Publishing has announced an October release for Agnes Quill: An Anthology of Mystery, a 136-page black-and-white trade paperback collecting web comics of Dave Roman's creation.

Here's how SLG described the book's concept:

"For Agnes Quill, talking to the dead is the easiest part of her life. As the heir to her great-grandfather's detective business, the 16-year-old Agnes must solve mysteries in the haunted, cobble-stoned and foggy city Legerdemain. It's a lot of responsibility for a teenaged girl, but Agnes is devoted to continuing her family's legacy. As she solves the strange cases her clients bring to her, Legerdemain's dearly departed citizens help, hinder, or just plain annoy her. Working with, against or in spite of these ghosts, Agnes frees trapped spirits, cursed souls and possessed relatives, finds disappearing pets, and confronts decapitated scientists, ambitious zombies, and other supernatural menaces."

Artists include Jason Ho, Jen Wang, Jeff Zornow and Raina Telgemeier.

"All of the artists who worked on the book brought their own sensibilities to the character and setting," Roman said. "Jason's art style is very dark and elegant, Raina's art is really animated and fluid, Jeff's is dynamic and insanely detailed, Jen's is full of raw emotion, while my own is probably more quirky and cute. They all compliment the character and help to make Agnes Quill feel like she exists beyond any one person's interpretation."

The book will cost $10.95. Click on the thumbnails for larger images.
