Press Release:

Folks, we are completely and totally honored to be hosting the day 1 release event for one of the most exciting new IDW series of the Summer: WILD BLUE YONDER. This post-apocalyptic steampunk thriller is a must-read, featuring the gorgeous artwork of THE CAPE artist ZACH HOWARD, and the writing of STUFF OF LEGEND’s MIKE RAICHT, it is a MUST.

When land and sea have become deadly and uninhabitable, the intrepid survivors of ecological disaster must take to the skies; to the WILD BLUE YONDER!

In a wildly imaginative take on the post-apocalyptic thriller, the creative team has created an eye-popping world of flying machines, massive makeshift fortresses and a desperate war among the dwindling population left to the scarce resources on the land.

As mankind has become accustomed to the reality of a prosperous life only existing in sky bound territory, a desperate war has broken out for control and survival on the ground and high above it.

A must-read, Third Eye Faithful, meet one of your favorite new titles of the Summer.

NYC – Stuff of Legend Book Club

Creators Mike Raicht and Charles Paul Wilson III appear at Midtown Comics Downtown to discuss their book Stuff of Legend on Friday, March 30, 2012 from 6:30pm until 7:30pm.

About The Stuff of Legend
The year is 1944. As Allied forces fight the enemy on Europe’s war-torn beaches, another battle begins in a child’s bedroom in Brooklyn. When the nightmarish Boogeyman snatches a boy and takes him to the realm of the Dark, the child’s playthings, led by the toy soldier known as the Colonel, band together to stage a daring rescue. On their perilous mission they will confront the boy’s bitter and forgotten toys, as well as betrayal in their own ranks. Can they save the boy from the forces of evil, or will they all perish in the process? The Stuff of Legend is a haunting and ultimately redemptive tale of loyalty, camaraderie, and perseverance.

This edition includes a brand-new story featuring the Colonel’s war journal, maps, sketches, and other original material!
