Official Press Release
The MAX imprint at Marvel is preparing for a blizzard of activity this winter as the ongoing Punisher MAX series will be joined by a slew of exciting mini-series including Hellstorm: Son of Satan, Foolkiller, Zombie, Wisdom, Haunt of Horror: H.P. Lovecraft.
In order to preview all of the upcoming MAX projects, Marvel is offering a low-priced MAX sampler to give fans a taste of the different adult-themed series hitting stands this winter.
Hellstorm: Son of Satan – Son of Satan makes his return and Alexander Irvine, award-winning novelist of The Narrows, along with artist Russell Braun will be bringing this MAX title back to its horror roots. When demons descend on a hurricane ravaged New Orleans, it’s up to the Damian to prevent the Big Easy from becoming Hell on Earth. Also, be sure to check out the chilling variant cover to the first issue by Mark Texeira.
Zombie – Mike Raicht and Kyle Hotz bring the gore in this four-issue limited series featuring a small New York town overtaken by the undead. When the last survivors learn they are barricaded in along with homicidal bank robbers, they find themselves between a rock and very dead place.
Foolkiller – Best-selling author Gregg Hurwitz oversees the return of a long-missing character in the pages of Foolkiller. Hurwitz, the author of best-selling novels The Kill Clause (currently being optioned by Paramount Pictures), Minutes to Burn, and Trouble Shooter, oversees the return of this oft-requested character.
Wisdom – Paul Cornell, writer of the BBC’s Dr. Who and Robin Hood, joins up with fan-favorite artist Trevor Hairsine as he pens a limited series following New Excalibur’s Pete Wisdom. Wisdom and his team of secret agents in MI:13 must protect England from an invasion of homicidal fairies, a town overtaken by nightmares and trigger-happy soldiers, and every other possible threat that could plague Britain.
Haunt of Horror: H.P. Lovecraft – The sci-fi musings of H.P. Lovecraft get the Haunt of Horror treatment as the classic writings of Lovecraft get a modern-day spin.
Punisher MAX – Writer Garth Ennis and artists Goran Parlov and Leandro Fernandez continue the “Man of Stone” story arc as Frank Castle takes the fight to a Russian general; all the way to the mountains of Afghanistan.
Also coming soon is the Haunt of Horror: Edgar Allan Poe HC featuring the three-issue series plus tons of extras.
Pick up the MAX Sampler to get a preview of all these upcoming MAX releases and see why the MAX line offers what you can’t get anywhere else on your comic stands.
Retailers are advised to check all their MAX titles orders carefully and to be aware of the adult themes of the books.
