Top Cow Productions has announced will it premiere Randy Queen's new series, Starfall, with a preview book at Comic-Con International on July 24-27.

The series will not be solicited until all the issues have been created.

"The high concept of the series is this: Space pirates crash land on an uncharted jungle planet and unknowingly unleash a degenerative nanobot technology that turns the local dinosaur and cannibal populace into raging zombies!" Queen said. "The story's main protagonist is Sierra Starfall, a female Flash Gordon/Tarzan type character who's hotwired with Dragon DNA and over 100 years old, despite not looking a day over 25. Sierra is legendary and considered by many to be the Galaxy's Greatest Warrior. She is the commander of a fiercely loyal rogues gallery of Alien Mercs, who have survived and vanquished many perils. This time they won't."

The introductory storyline chronicles the last mission of Starfall's valiant crew.

"It will be a study on how the dynamics of a team book become the dynamics of a solo book as the pirates meet their collective fates on this savage planet. And they do not go quietly into that good night!" Queen said.

Starfall marks a reunion between Top Cow and Queen.

"Top Cow is where I got my start, and was essentially my college experience," Queen said. "Founder and CEO Marc Silvestri was the first person who wanted me to draw a comic book, and because he is one of my favorite artists, it had a profound and life-changing effect.

"Matt Hawkins was the man who would later help launch Darkchylde, and his marketing muscle and branding tenacity is also profound and admirable."

Zenescope Entertainment has announced it is postponing the next issue of Willow Creek indefinitely while artist/co-creator Josh Medors continues medical treatment.

During spinal surgery in December, a tumor was discovered on Medors' spine. Following Medors' successful rehabilitation, he was able to continue work on the series. Within the last six weeks Medors was required to undergo further treatment, which has set back his recovery.

"Right now Josh's treatment and recovery absolutely comes first and foremost. When Josh is ready to get back to work, he will, but until that point he needs to focus on what's important and that's getting 100 percent better." said Zenescope's Ralph Tedesco.

"He has so many supporters through all of this and not only has the industry been supportive but all of the fans have been phenomenal in showing their adoration, and I know Josh can't express enough how much that means to him."

Last month several comic creators, publishers and fans joined for a benefit auction at the Emerald City Comic Con. The benefit helped raise over $10,000 to go toward Medors' treatment.
