Official Press Release
Frank Forte, creator of The Vampire Verses, Insidious Tales and The Asylum Of Horrors, is releasing the first issue of a new character, Warlash, through his company Asylum Press. Four stories, 56 pages, and one low price of $3.95 allow every reader to get a serious value for their comic book dollar.
Frank Forte describes, “One part tortured hero, two parts hard core action, with a heaping helping of desperate femme fatales and thugs mixed with the hearbeat of a dirty Pittsburgh is the strong stiff drink we are offering fans. We want to introduce Warlash with these short noir vignettes. It will give the readers a chance to see the character, his environments and the nasty villians he will encounter. Everyone deals with inner demons and some of the baddies he fights are in his own head. ”
“There will be a lot of hard-hitting action and carnage, ” Forte continues,” especially to cyborgs and mutants. I foresee a high body count.”
In this giant sized first issue, Warlash, an armored warrior of the apocalyptic future, is back with a vengeance. This issue reintroduces Warlash with four tales of hard boiled crime noir terror. With interior art by Frank Forte, Szymon Kudranski, Steve Mannon and a cover by Bruno Werneck, the tales of mutant cyborgs, satanic rituals and seedy crimelords come to life.
