Official Press Release
AAM/Markosia is proud to announce that they are the new home of Eleventh Hour. Orang Utan Comics Studio self published two issues of the anthology series during 2007, and both sold out quickly and received excellent reviews. The team at OUC have enjoyed a fantastic working relationship with AAM/Markosia over the last couple of years, contributing to such titles as The Flying Friar, Kong: King of Skull Island and, in the near future, Starship Troopers.
Orang Utan Comics Studio founder, Ian Sharman, said, “AAM/Markosia saw the huge potential in our smash hit anthology series, and, working closely together, we’ve ensured that Eleventh Hour Vol 1 will take the series to a whole new level in terms of quality of both art and storytelling.”
Publisher Harry Markos said, “We’re thrilled to be partnering with OUC on Eleventh Hour. It didn’t take long for me to make a decision when I saw the new material that they had, and quickly contacted them with a view to publishing it in a good-sized volume. They have worked so hard these past few months that it humbled me. I am confident that many of the contributing creators will be established in the industry within months of the June release, such is the quality of their work.”
Featuring twelve unique stories by the skilled writers of Orang Utan Comics Studio, and 80 pages of gorgeous greyscaled black and white artwork from their talented artists from across the globe, Eleventh Hour Vol 1 is setting the bar for anthology comics for some years to come.
Eleventh Hour Vol 1 will be published by AAM/Markosia in June 2008. Distributed by Diamond Comic Distributors. Inc, it will be listed in the April issue of Diamond’s Previews magazine — be sure to ask your local comic book retailer to order you a copy.
Eleventh Hour Vol 1 will also be available to order from AAM/Markosia’s online store.
