Official Press Release
Kearny, NJ — Feb 14, 2007 — Jack Warning, faithful sidekick and transcriptionist to THE MANY ADVENTURES OF MIRANDA MERCURY, has used his genius to produce the website to end all websites: www.mirandamercury.com. The website includes: downloads (avatars and wallpapers), snapshots of Miranda’s life, news, character profiles, creator profiles, links to interviews, and so much more.
Archaia Studios Press, teaming up with Jack’s confidants, Brandon Thomas and Lee Ferguson, are thrilled to release THE MANY ADVENTURES OF MIRANDA MERCURY #295 ($3.95, Diamond Code: DEC07 3385, 32 full-color pages, Ages 10+ Mild Violence). It hits earth-dimension retailers everywhere Wed, Feb 27.
Fellow chronicler Brandon Thomas, interviewed by tow-haired Jack, said, “MirandaMercury.com provides another way to plug into the world of this great adventurer. New character profiles and behind-the-scenes materials will be updated frequently. Plus, Jack, your Journal of Jack Warning will debut on the same day as our 295th issue. You’ve told me this will be the place for folks to learn about some of the happenings in the prior 294 issues of your lives. I know you won’t disappoint.”
But Jack knows the truth. Miranda Mercury will die. And both THE MANY ADVENTURES OF MIRANDA MERCURY and MirandaMercury.com will be the only places her legacy will live on as her life ends.
THE MANY ADVENTURES OF MIRANDA MERCURY #295 (of 300)
Writer: Brandon Thomas (ROBIN), Artist: Lee Ferguson (SUPERGIRL),
Inker: Marc Deering, Colorist: Felix Serrano.
In less than one year, a lifetime of heroism will come to a premature end—Miranda Mercury, the greatest adventurer in this or any other galaxy, is dying. With her partner, Jack Warning, she has done the impossible over and again. But Miranda’s greatest adversary Cyrus Vega will ultimately succeed in causing her death, where so many others have failed.
So why have Miranda and Jack gone through so much trouble to secure the legendary Riddle of Rebel Ronin? It might have something to do with extra-dimensional terrorists and the secret auction of the Eighth Day. Or it just might be that Jack knows something he isn’t supposed to. Something that will change their relationship forever and endanger the legacy Miranda hopes to leave behind.
