Official Press Release
BERKELEY, CA — Comics industry superstar Robert
Kirkman is going on a five-city, seventy-two hour tour to promote the
debut of his new comic book series, THE ASTOUNDING WOLF-MAN. The tour
takes place over the weekend of May 5th, Free Comic Book Day. Fans in
New York City, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay
Area can meet the writer of WALKING DEAD, ULTIMATE X-MEN and
INVINCIBLE and get FREE copies of THE ASTOUNDING WOLF-MAN #1!
“For Kirkman’s first new creator-owned series in four years, we’re
doing something big,” says Director of Marketing Mark Haven Britt.
“You get an awesome new FREE comic, you get to meet Robert in person,
AND you get to meet him when he’s delirious from sleep deprivation
and cross country flights! Come on by! It’s gonna be a hoot!”
THE ASTOUNDING WOLF-MAN chronicles the life of workaholic CEO Gary
Hampton. While on a rare family vacation, he’s bitten by a werewolf.
Cursed to live his nights as a monster, Gary works to use these evil
powers for the greater good. The story is part superhero, part horror
and a whole lot of fun.
