BERKELEY, CA -- July, 2006 -- Erik Larsen's SHE-DRAGON makes hertriumphant return this July in a mammoth sized sixty-four page special.
"That's right: It's now SIXTY-FOUR BIG PAGES – and we're not chargingyou a dollar more," Larsen explained. "Originally I'd planned to capit out at 40 or even 42 story pages. However, Franchesco! and Icouldn't stop, so we ran out of ample space to show off all the coolbehind-the-scenes stuff. With the addition of sixteen sketchbookpages we're now able to give readers a peek at the hard work we did."
"Don't say we never gave you anything!" Franchesco! exclaimed.
As if the increased size wasn't enough, the SHE-DRAGON special nowleads directly into SAVAGE DRAGON #128, which features those lovablelawbreakers from Mark Millar and J.G. Jones' caustic classic WANTED.
"Sometimes things are better with time and this special is nodifferent," said Larsen. "While I'm sorry folks had to wait so darnedlong, the end result is so much better because of the extra effort.This book is absolutely stunning."
With the stunning SHE-DRAGON statue slated to come out later thisyear and rumblings of a follow up miniseries, this looks like abanner year for the green-skinned goddess.
SHE-DRAGON (DEC041542) is available for advance re-order. It is now a64-page full color book with a cover price of $5.99 and will be instores on July 26th.
