Official Press Release
ORANGE, CA — 26 April, 2002 — The POWERS: WHO KILLED RETRO GIRL? trade
paperback is going into its third printing, making it the best-selling trade
in Image Central history. The second TPB, ROLEPLAY, is heading into its
second printing after fewer than six months on the stands. So what’s next
for award-winning team of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming after
that? A third trade paperback collection, of course.
POWERS: LITTLE DEATHS will compile the three-part “Groupies” story arc from
POWERS #12-14, along with “Ride Along,” the story from the sold-out POWERS
#7 in which Warren Ellis guest-starred as himself. Also included is the
complete POWERS ANNUAL (including the story that first ran in Wizard’s
POWERS 1/2) and the POWERS COLORING AND ACTIVITY BOOK, along with a dazzling
new sketchbook section from Oeming, a cover gallery, and an in-depth
interview with Bendis.
Also, as a special bonus, POWERS: LITTLE DEATHS will include POWERS: WHO
KILLED MADMAN? from the 2000 Oni Color Special, a sly parody of POWERS by
the series’ creators featuring a mind-blowing lineup of comic book
guest-stars that has to be seen to be believed.
And if that’s STILL not enough, LITTLE DEATHS will also feature Bendis and
Oeming’s very first collaboration, the crime noir tale, “Keys,” a short
story that originally appeared in the ultra-rare JINX TRUE CRIME CONFESSIONS
If that sounds like a lot of material, Bendis and Oeming couldn’t be more
pleased. “We understand what the readers expect from POWERS trade
paperbacks: more more more,” says Bendis. “I think this trade builds on the
expectations set by WHO KILLED RETRO GIRL?”
All in all, POWERS: LITTLE DEATHS will be a whopping 224 pages shipping in
August. The book will retail for $18.95.
Meanwhile, the third printing of POWERS: WHO KILLED RETRO GIRL? is due to
ship in July with the second printing of ROLEPLAY set to follow shortly
thereafter. A signed and numbered print of the cover from the latest
printing of the overwhelmingly successful RETRO GIRL trade is also being
produced, with all proceeds going to ACTOR (A Commitment To Our Roots).
