Official Press Release
BERKELEY, CA — 24 May, 2006 — Las Vegas, the city of sin, vice, and
bright lights is about to explode in the new BOMB QUEEN vs.
Coming hot on the heels of the sold-out BOMB QUEEN mini-series, this
over-the-top satire is written by SCOTT WHERLE (Blacklight) and
illustrated by Bomb Queen’s JIMMIE ROBINSON!
This pyrotechnic one-shot opens on Bomb Queen and Blacklight finding
themselves in Las Vegas for conventions (a weapons convention and a
comic convention, respectively). The girls come to odds over ‘The
Intimidator,’ a weapon so deadly, it’s the only one of its kind and
that’s when the ‘catfight’ ensues.
Shadowline founder Jim Valentino says, “We wanted to see what happens
when Shadowline’s resident good girl, Blacklight, faces down Bomb
Queen, whose mini-series placed her at the top spot for ‘Baddest
Woman In Comics.’ Scott and Jimmie found a story that will have
everyone howling with laughter and begging for more.”
Fortunately, more Bomb Queen is on the way. Not only is BOMB QUEEN:
WMD (WOMAN OF MASS DESTRUCTION) shipping this July, collecting the
sold-out first BOMB QUEEN mini-series, but the one-shot will be
followed this fall by a brand-new BOMB QUEEN mini-series, written and
drawn by creator Jimmie Robinson!
Valentino warns, “Reports we get are that stores have not been able
to keep BOMB QUEEN in stock and with a cover like this, forget about
it, BOMB QUEEN vs. BLACKLIGHT is gonna fly off the shelves!”
BOMB QUEEN vs. BLACKLIGHT 1-SHOT (JUN061679) is available for order
now from the August Previews catalog. It is a full-color book with a
cover price of $3.50 and will be on sale at braver comics shops
