Official Press Release
SOMERVILLE, MA – February 12, 2002 – Cyberosia Publishing is pleased to announce the addition of Lea Hernandez’s “Texas Steampunk” series to Cyberosia’s rapidly expanding line of graphic novels.
“CATHEDRAL CHILD and CLOCKWORK ANGELS come at you from angles rarely
explored by most comics from the past ten years,” said Scott O. Brown,
Publisher for Cyberosia. “Lea’s plots are riveting, and her characters
live and breathe like real people living in a fantastic world full of
steam-driven computers, mystical beings, and jackalopes. We’re proud to
be bringing these books back into print and as well as providing Lea a
home for future books in the ‘Texas Steampunk’ series.”
“I think Cyberosia’s the next Big Thing in comics publishing. Who
doesn’t want to be on that ride? Who wouldn’t want their work at a
company that’s obviously on its way up?” commented Lea on her decision
to bring her books to Cyberosia. “The deciding factor was something
anyone doing graphic novels should consider: does the company I want to
be with have bookstore distribution? I have had a great deal of success
in comics specialty shops, but when I kept hearing that my work falls
squarely into the fastest growing segment of bookstore graphic novel
sales, I wanted to be there. I knew my books would be in good hands when
I was trying to think of a way to ask Scott if I could have film for
about ten percent of each book re-shot and corrected. But before I could
ask, Scott asked me how I felt about digital. And better paper. He
really twisted my arm. I’m excited about these new editions of CATHEDRAL
and CLOCKWORK because I feel like they’ll finally do the artwork
CATHEDRAL CHILD, the first in the ‘Texas Steampunk’ series of graphic
novels, will be available this June, followed by CLOCKWORK ANGELS in the
fall. They will retain their original cover price of $10.95 with
upgraded paper and digitally transfered art. 2003 sees the release of
the third book, IRONCLAD PEDAL, which will be serialized online at
ModernTales.com in the coming months.
