Official Press Release

(San Diego, CA) – Screenwriter/Creator Kevin Grevioux brings his comic book imprint, Astounding Studios, to Alias Comics with a series of new releases, beginning in February with THE HAMMER KID!

THE HAMMER KID #0, coming this February by writer Kevin Grevioux and artist Jack Lawrence, tells the story of a 12-year old named Kevin Erikson, who accidentally inherits the power of Thor’s hammer and must now use it to save Asgard and Earth from the evil schemes of the Trickster, Loki! How will a mortal boy from Minnesota go from juggling algebra and bullies to the awesome responsibility of wielding the hammer of Thor?

Grevioux is perhaps best known as the creator/associate producer and original screenwriter behind the popular UNDERWORLD film and franchise – as well as playing the role of Raze in the first film. He has also appeared in a variety of comic book themed acting roles, including MEN IN BLACK II, STEEL, BATMAN FOREVER, THE MASK, and recently as the voice of Solomon Grundy in The WB’s animated series, THE BATMAN!

Now having jumped from screen to print with two all-new comic book imprints, Astounding Studios and DarkStorm Studios, Grevioux says making the move to Alias Comics wasn’t a hard decision to make.

“Alias is a company that has a little something for everyone: it’s not just superheroes, it’s also action, horror, all-ages, spiritual and just all-around fun that really stokes the imagination. They have a very eclectic taste and style to their books and I just wanted to be part of that,” said Grevioux.

Here’s how Alias describes THE HAMMER KID #0:


Written by Kevin Grevioux, with art by Jack Lawrence

Screenwriter/actor Kevin Grevioux, Co-Creator and Star of the blockbuster movie UNDERWORLD, makes his comic book debut as a writer in January with Alias! Somewhere over the rainbow takes on a new meaning when young Kevin Erikson finds himself pulled across Bifrost, the rainbow bridge leading to Asgard, home of the Norse Gods, only to become the heir to the most powerful weapon in the universe…the Hammer of Thor! Can a teenage boy grow up fast enough to become the hero both Earth and Asgard need? The adventure of a lifetime begins here, illustrated by fan favorite Jack ‘Lions, Tigers and Bears’ Lawrence!

— 24-pages, full-color one shot — $3.50

Future books coming from Astounding Studios include VALKYRIES, GUARDIAN HEROES, VINDICATORS and more! Grevioux is also preparing titles such as DARKSTORM, LEGIONS, ALIUS REX, and THE PALE HORSEMEN for his DarkStorm Studios imprint – all to be published under Alias Comics in 2006!

“Coming from the film industry, I like high-concept stories – and I want to try and bring that sensibility to my comic book work,” said Grevioux. “I wanted to throw my hat into the ring and try to create cool and interesting stories like the ones I watched when I was growing up.”

THE HAMMER KID #0 (DEC052754) is a full-color 24-page one-shot shipping this February from Astounding Studios and Alias Comics for only $3.50!
