Official Press Release
The critically acclaimed fantasy series Sleeping Dragons finds a new home at Too Hip Gotta Go Graphics.
In July 2004, Too Hip Gotta Go Graphics will publish Sleeping Dragons Book One: Becca's Scarecrow, a trade paperback collecting the original five-issue series.
During its original run, Sleeping Dragons won a devoted following for its character-driven tales of fantasy and adventure. The book also received a nomination for the Friends of Lulu's Lulu of the Year Award, and it earned artist Alex Szewczuk a nomination for the Russ Manning New Talent Award in 2001.
The trade paperback will contain two stories. In the short story 'Sleeping Dragons', a zealous knight faces off against a conniving wizard in his attempt to convince the residents of a medieval town to aid him in his plan to attack the nearby lair of a sleeping dragon. The four-part 'Becca's Scarecrow' is a mix of love story and war epic, as Philip the knight and Becca the archer must find a way to save the walled city of Gan from the return of an ancient enemy.
"I'm thrilled that Sleeping Dragons will be appearing under the banner of Too Hip Gotta Go Graphics," said writer Kevin Mason, "and this trade paperback is something I've personally wanted to see for a very long time.
To the book's long-time readers, I'd like to say thank you for your support, and rest assured that this is only the beginning: a new Sleeping Dragons series is on the horizon!"
