PREVIEW: ‘Dragons Lair’ #1

Official Press Release

Two decades ago, Dragon’s Lair thrilled fans by combining feature-quality
animation with revolutionary computer technology. Recently a whole new
generation of players discovered Bluth’s genius through the acclaimed
Dragon’s Lair 3D game. And now, on August 6th, everyone who loves the
classic Bluth art style is invited once again to a time of swords, sorcery,
brave knights and fighting-mad princesses! Celebrating the 20th Anniversary
of the smash hit arcade game, MVCreations and CrossGen present DRAGON’S
LAIR: SINGE’S REVENGE!

The six-issue mini-series follows the further adventures Dirk the Daring and
Princess Daphne, as they return from an astonishing adventure in the Free
Realms only to be attacked by the great dragon Singe and his evil minions!
Singe has vowed revenge against Dirk for killing his offspring, and Daphne
is caught in the dread dragon’s claws! Armed only with his courage and
skill, Dirk must brave the Dark Kingdom and all its evils in order to save
the Princess from Singe!

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be working with animation legend Don Bluth on
the comic book series, said MVCreations president Val Staples. “Don’s been
fantastic and has been involved in every aspect of the book, from the
story’s conception all the way to the art production. This is a book that
stays true to the Dragon’s Lair mythos while also setting the stage for some
big screen adventures.”

“We’ve revved together an outstanding creative team to bring the series to
life,” raved MVCreations art director Matt Tyree. “Star Wars and Star Trek
novelist Andy Mangles has written a wonderfully witty and humorous action
adventure script. Penciler Fabio Laguna worked closely with Don Bluth, Gary
Goldman and the Bluth Group in order to capture the animated dynamics of
Dragon’s Lair and translated the look and feel into comic book format. And
colorist Tony Washington’s hues are breathtaking!”

“It’s very rewarding to be working on a series that will not only appeal to
veteran comic book readers, but also with children as well,” remarked
MVCreations marketing director Jonboy Meyers. “We’ve wanted to produce
something that will appeal to an audience of all ages, and DRAGON’S LAIR:
SINGE’S REVENGE certainly delivers the goods. Kids will love the fast-paced
action and visuals, while older fans will get a kick out of the Shrek-like
humor.”

DRAGON’S LAIR: SINGE’S REVENGE #1 can be ordered in the CrossGen section of
the June Diamond Previews catalog. Lead on, adventurer . . . your quest
awaits!

Your Friend @ CrossGen,

Bill Rosemann
