Seven Brothers. Seven men. Nothing in common. To fulfill an ancient prophecy, their destinies are drawn together by a mysterious young woman. This motley crew of so-called brothers is now the world’s only hope of stopping an ancient evil that has returned to threaten the very fabric of existence.
“The $100 million box office success of John Woo’s films such as M:I2 and Face/Off are a definite indicator that comic shops will receive a steady flow of traffic and new customers on the October 18th release date,” said Chief Marketing Officer Larry Lieberman. “An extensive mass market press campaign is set to coincide with the release of the comic, so retailers are urged to have ample copies available for John Woo fans that visit their shops this October. Don’t be caught short”
