Official Press Release
Each day throughout the month of April Aspen will be revealing a single panel – or a glimpse at a piece of a panel – from issues 0, 1 and 2 of IDOLIZED. Fans have seen some of IDOLIZED’s covers, but none of the interior art until now. The artwork can be seen by visiting the official IDOLIZED Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/IDOLIZEDComic.
“We’ve been aching to show fans how absolutely amazing the interiors on this series look,” said Aspen’s Editor-in-Chief Vince Hernandez. “Micah Gunnell’s pencils on this book are beyond outstanding, and we can’t wait for the readers to see how spectacular it is.”
“IDOLIZED” is Aspen’s first-ever superhero series. It tells the story of girl with super-powers and a tortured past, who seeks revenge, and ultimately finds redemption, over the course of competing in a televised super-hero competition show. Essentially, it’s “True Grit” meets “American Idol”…with capes. The series is written by Michael’s brother David B. Schwartz (acclaimed writer of Image Comics’ “MELTDOWN,” “Aspen Showcase: Ember” and “Fathom: Blue Descent”), with explosive art by Micah Gunnell (“Shrugged,” “Executive Assistant: Orchid,” “Dellec”) and colors by David Curiel (“Executive Assistant: Orchid”). Cover artists will include ART ADAMS, JOE BENITEZ, KERON GRANT, HUMBERTO RAMOS and more of the biggest names in comics. The first issue will debut June 27th, 2012.
