Official Press Release
New York Publisher/Writer Philip Clark announces two milestones from his Dreamchilde Press. Dreamchilde's flagship title, "QUANTUM: Rock of Ages" will be released to comic book stores across the country this Wednesday, November 10, as a highly anticipated trade paperback. QUANTUM also goes into publication electronically this month, with back-issues available on the World Wide Web. Hailed by readers, reviewers, and comic pros alike, QUANTUM: Rock of Ages is gaining ground as one of indie comics' best new series.
Part Clerks, part Sliders, QUANTUM: Rock of Ages – Act 1 follows the adventures of Nick Vargas, a jaded musician turned record-store owner. Nick is unwittingly taken on the ultimate cross-time thrill ride due to a time experiment gone awry in an alternate reality. His goal is to reassemble the Quantum Silica--an ancient and powerful artifact that has been split into seven fragments--in order to repair time and space before all existence ends. During his quest he encounters other characters that are also affected by the bizarre gemstone. Each fragment of the "Quantum" sphere offers a unique power to Nick and his counterparts, and the Quantum needs to be reassembled before Nick can return to his record store reality. Toss in a diabolical nemesis and some quirky pop-culture humor, and QUANTUM makes for a highly enjoyable ride.
In addition to the magnificent art by Ozzy Longoria and James Rodriguez, QUANTUM: Rock of Ages - Act 1 also features bonus material: character bios, self-publishing tips, and a sketchbook of comicdom's hottest talent including David Mack (Kabuki), Jim Calafiore (Exiles), Mark Texeira (Sabertooth), Andy McDonald (NYC Mech), Jamal Igle (Green Lantern), Andy Lee (Marvel Team-up) and more!
