Press Release:

Mark McKenna makes his triumphant return to East Side Mags for the re-release of Combat Jacks #1 but this time – it’s the Director’s Cut! He’ll be signing copies of Combat Jacks #1, sketching on blank covers and hanging out from 1pm-5pm on Saturday, October 15!

About Combat Jacks #1:
In the 23rd-century, a space marine squad is sent to investigate the disappearance of prison terraformers on newfound planet Maia. What they find is much worse then they imagined. The oxygen-rich atmosphere created by the planet’s pumpkin-like vegetation makes Maia a perfect place for settlement – and the perfect flytrap!

About Mark:
Mark McKenna is a 30 year veteran of the comic book industry. In that time he has worked on Batman, Wolverine, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk and more recently on Star Wars, counting over 550 comics in all.

Mark’s more recent work can be seen in Legendary Picture Books PACIFIC RIM movie prequel, Dark Horse Comics Star Wars-The Old Republic: The Lost Suns. In 2012 his work on the online web comic titled “Star Wars: Blood of the Empire“ was collected into an 84 page trade paperback and was the lynchpin for the 2012 released Bio-ware online video game, The Old Republic.

His children’s book series Banana Tail and Friends is a labor of love that he created when his daughter was four and had a newborn son. His most recent Banana Tail project, The BOOnana Tail Halloween Special was released for Halloween 2014 and was treated as an “all ages” comic project that continues to grow with children that had the original storybooks read to them as younger children. The other Banana Tail titles include; Banana Tail’s Tales and Activities, Banana Tail’s Colorful Adventure and the soon-to-be-released Banana Tail and the Checkerboard Jungle

Mark has also created, written, inked and published the Sci Fi/Horror COMBAT JACKS comic book mini series. COMBAT JACKS #3… “The Saga Continues” was recently published and is now available under Mark’s Banana Tale Press imprint.
