“Zoom Suit” #1 Sells For $100 In Charity Auction

Official Press Release


Palm Beach, FL – Still a full month before the April 26
debut of Zoom Suit #1, an ungraded copy has sold online for $100. Zoom Suit
creator John Taddeo has donated 100 percent of the sale to the Humane
Society.


First reported in Comics Buyer’s Guide #1617 (June 2006 cover date, on sale
now), the extremely rare “Film Festival Edition” variant of Zoom Suit #1 was
distributed to friends and early supporters of the Zoom Suit project. The
few remaining copies were listed online at the Superverse web site at $100
per copy. The first was purchased within 48 hours of the listing by longtime
comic fan Andrew Hamlin of Texas.

“It was an easy decision,” said Hamlin. “Great story, great art, huge
potential and it helps a charity I support. John Taddeo has nurtured a
fantastic comic supported by a fun web site and animated short that help
make comics fun again. Zoom Suit rocks!”

Located at the Superverse web site (www.superverse.com), the Superverse Direct online store contains
items not available for sale anywhere else. Rare variants, posters,
lithographs, clothing and more can all be purchased here.

“The reaction to Zoom Suit has been a dream come true, but I never thought
I’d see the collector interest pique like this,” said Taddeo. “I haven’t
seen anything like this since my time at Marvel with Platinum Spider-Man
#1.”
