Official Press Release
Everyone has a horror story about their family, and now your nightmare can get you comic book immortality.
Virgin Comics is asking readers to submit videos, pictures or stories explaining why your family is from hell. The winner will be drawn into the graphic novel edition of Jenna Jameson’s Shadow Hunter.
Virgin’s “Is Your Family from Hell?!?” contest celebrates the February 20 release of Shadow Hunter #1, Jenna Jameson’s new, non-nude horror comic. In it, a remarkably attractive and familiar looking Jezzerie Jaden is the daughter of the dark and ultimately evil Shadow Lord. Fortunately for us, Jezzerie rebels against her family from hell, launching a bloody crusade to track down and destroy her father’s demons.
Shadow Hunter #1 can be pre-ordered at www.JennaComix.com for just $2.99, with free shipping on all pre-orders.
“Jenna is a true connoisseur of horror,” commented Larry Lieberman, Virgin Comics’ Chief Marketing Officer. When she announced the Shadow Hunter series at San Diego Comic-Con she told her fans, “When other people go back to their hotel rooms at night and watch me, I go back to my hotel room and watch horror movies!’.”
Greg Horn – acclaimed cover illustrator of many comics including Virgin Comics’ Dan Dare, Devi, The Stranded and now Shadow Hunter – will be drawing the contest winner into a full-fledged combat panel with the Shadow Hunter. No word yet on how badly the winner’s butt gets kicked! Ten runner-ups will win a Jenna autographed limited edition Shadow Hunter litho by Greg Horn plus a collection of graphic novels from Virgin Comics.
A video trailer of Shadow Hunter has been one of the most viewed videos on iFilm.com since exclusively premiering on the site, viewed by more than 40,000 users. Jenna’s Shadow Hunter video can now be seen at www.JennaComix.com and www.youtube.com, among numerous other viral video sites.
