Official Press Release

Hey, True Believer!

Retailers face a tough prospect every month. After all, how are they
supposed to accurately order a new project when oftentimes all they have to
go on is a cover and some creator quotes? That’s why, over the last few
weeks — as we have with DEADPOOL #65 and THING & SHE-HULK: THE LONG NIGHT
— we’ve made an effort to distribute interior art while the Diamond Order
Cut-Off date is still open, meaning retailers can take a look at the preview
art and then increase their orders — and that you can run into your local
comics shop and say, “Hey, can you order me a copy of TIGRA #1?”!

Speaking of TIGRA #1, here’s the first four pages in full color! On sale
March 27th, The Order Cut-Off date for the debut issue is March 7th. Enjoy!

* THE SCOOP: Marvel’s feline femme fatale leaps into her own series!

* THE SET-UP: She’s been a super hero, a creature of the night, and an
Avenger. But what is the true face of the were-woman known as Tigra? Find
out as a clue to an unsolved murder sends Greer on an odyssey of discovery
through the halls of power – a feral hunter in an urban jungle!

* THE STORY: Having attempted to settle into a new life over the past few
years with the Avengers, Tigra isn’t happy with just being “part of the
team”. Where some people are happy neatly fitting in, Greer wants – needs –
more. A woman with an unquenchable appetite, she hops from bed to bed before
realizing she’s got to settle up with the past. This means getting to
bottom of The Brotherhood of the Blue Fist: an elusive group who may have
murdered her late husband… and who now dish out justice in leather bondage
masks! Can the were-woman infiltrate the deadly cabal… or will curiosity
kill the cat?

* THE CREATIVE TEAM: The sultry sexuality and fur-flying action comes your
way from writer Christina Z (Witchblade) and penciler Mike Deodato Jr.
(Wonder Woman)!

* THE WRITER SPEAKS: “With urges and desires that must be factored in to her
crime-fighting charisma, Tigra can change her form to human with the use of
a special amulet, but one must remember that this duality isn’t the easiest
power to deal with,” said Z. “When her tension levels fly high, Greer can
change form uncontrollably without the use of the amulet; something you
don’t really want to do in public. Tigra, as you’ll see, is one complex

* THE FORMAT: The debut issue of this four-issue, monthly mini-series is 32
pages, with ads. On Sale March 27th (MarvelPG) $2.99
