Komikwerks Enlists "The Major"

Official Press Release

Boston, MA - Komikwerks LLC, a leader in online comics publishing, announced today that Brazilian creators' Hector Lima and Irapuan Luiz' action-packed comic THE MAJOR has joined the online library of weekly comics at komikwerks.com (AOL Keyword: Komikwerks). THE MAJOR is the story of a soldier fresh from the Iraqi battlefield; an unstable, newly assigned special agent who jumps headfirst into a secret mission inside the dangerous Brazilian slums. His mission: to rescue an American bank manager from drug lord Mad Matias' private army.

Co-creator/writer Hector Lima describes the comic as "Jack Bauer on caipirinha (a famous Brazilian drink) in a uniform, unleashed in the middle of a shadowy political conspiracy full of twists and turns. Patrick and Shannon at Komikwerks have welcomed us with arms open wide."

"We're psyched that Hector and Irapuan have found a home for THE MAJOR at Komikwerks," exclaims Patrick Coyle, co-founder of Komikwerks. "The story is exciting and action packed. The artwork is gorgeous. What more can any red-blooded comics fan ask for?"

"Internet publishing allows us to work with great creators from around the world. We're thrilled to be able to help spread the word about some of Brazil's finest comics," co-founder Shannon Denton adds.

THE MAJOR has begun its weekly updates on komikwerks.com (AOL Keyword: Komikwerks) and updates each Tuesday.
