Official Press Release
ORANGE, CA — Image Comics is delighted to announce the
return of an old favorite. Beginning this October, the fantastic world of
TELLOS returns in TALES OF TELLOS, a full-color, three issue miniseries,
written by series creator Todd Dezago, with covers by series co-creator Mike
Wieringo (Fantastic Four).
TELLOS, as it says at the beginning of each issue, is a magical patchwork
world made up of a myriad of different realms, populated by Creatures of
Myth and of Legend, a Fantastic Land filled with Adventure around every
corner–and Danger at every turn!
Co-creator Mike Wieringo is convinced the book will appeal to readers both
old and new.
“It’s in incredible thing for me to see TELLOS out in the public eye again–
even if I’m not the one drawing the stories (sniff…..),” says the artist.
“But I DID get to draw the covers, and it brought all those wonderful
feelings flooding back that I felt when I was drawing our first story arc.
Working with Todd on TELLOS was the high-water mark of my comics career, and
it’s a blast that our characters are out there again. I’m hoping a new
group of readers will discover TELLOS– and that long-time fans will enjoy
these stories as well.”
At the thrilling conclusion to the original TELLOS storyline, the surviving
characters were scattered to the four winds of these amazing–and oftentimes
dangerous–fairytale realms. In this three issue miniseries, we present an
anthology of tales which pick up with several of these characters and set
the stage for the long-awaited, all-new storyline TELLOS: SECOND COMING, due
out in Spring of 05.
Each issue will feature two or three stories, with art by Howard Porter
(Flash), Craig Rousseau (Impulse) and Kelly Yates, as well as European
Artists Ciro Tota, Bruno Bessadi and Mauricet.
As Readers of the TELLOS series know, mysteries and secrets abound in this
particular Land of Fantasy, and every story contains another clue to the
ever-unfolding riddles. Stories intertwine and loop around each other, so
that even when you think you know it all…
Writer Todd Dezago has a last message for readers:
“If you’re going to read just one comic book this year, make sure it’s
something by Alan Moore, ’cause he’s awesome! But if you have enough left
over to buy one more book, and you wanna have some fun, make it TALES OF
TELLOS! We’ll be glad you did!”
TALES OF TELLOS #2 is available for preorder in the November issue of
PREVIEWS and will be on sale November 17. TALES OF TELLOS #1 is on sale in
