Aspen MLT Inc. will be arriving at the Wizard World Chicago 2006 convention with a multitude of Aspen exclusive products available for purchase only at the Aspen Comics booth, #221. Leading the charge for Aspen will be the world premiere of the long-awaited new Aspen mini-series Soulfire: Chaos Reign! The debut issue of Soulfire: Chaos Reign #1 features an all new storyline by writer J.T. Krul, with Aspen artist Marcus To providing artwork for the series. To celebrate the event, Michael Turner and Peter Steigerwald provided an exclusive Wizard World cover limited to only 2500 copies.
Fans looking for more Michael Turner art will not be disappointed as Aspen will also have available the Aspen Exclusive Variant cover to Marvel Comic's mega-event series Civil War: X-Men #1, featuring a cover by Turner and Steigerwald. Following on the heels of the colossal release of the Aspen Exclusive Variant cover to Civil War #1, the X-Men #1 variant is the one convention exclusive fans must get as it is limited to only 5000 total copies and is sure to sell out fast!
The fun doesn't stop there as Michael Turner returns to the world below and his creation Fathom, for an exclusive Fathom #10 Wizard World exclusive jam cover with current Fathom artist Koi Turnbull. This Chicago convention exclusive is limited to 2000 copies and is colored by Peter Steigerwald.
As if all that wasn't enough, Aspen will also be releasing an entirely new line of prints for the show, including the Soulfire: Chaos Reign #1 Turner Wizard World Chicago cover, the Fathom #10 Wizard World Exclusive Turner/Turnbull jam cover print, an all-new Fathom Classic Turner print, AND a new Aspen Swimsuit Splash #1 Wizard World Chicago Exclusive Print.
