Aspen Comics proudly presents their first ever super-hero series, IDOLIZED!

Welcome to the mind-bending new comic book series about a TV show where super-powered teens and 20-somethings are competing for the ultimate dream-prize: a guaranteed spot in that world’s top super-group, The Powered Protectors. The chance of winning offers fame, fortune, massive endorsement deals and, of course, a chance to actually save the world. Kids who dream of being worshipped as the next great, iconic hero would be falling all over themselves to get on – and hopefully even win – the show.
Against this backdrop, IDOLIZED is the story of a girl with fledgling superpowers and a dark past, who seeks revenge, and ultimately finds redemption, over the course of competing in this televised superhero competition show. It’s True Grit meets American Idol… with capes!

“We’re fortunate to be based in a city that’s overflowing with talented comic book writers and artists,” said store owner Jun Goeku.  “What better time for the creators to introduce potential new readers to the fantastic tales they weave than Free Comic Book Day?”
 
Among the participating creators and publishers are:  BOOM! STUDIOS’ Michael Alan Nelson (Dingo, Hexed, 28 Days Later), ARCHAIA’S Jeff Stokely (Fraggle Rock), TOP COW’S Rob Levin (Broken Trinity, Witchblade, Darkness) and Rahsan Ekedal (The Crazies, The Cleaners, Warhammer 40,000), Ninth Circle’s Rafael Navarro (Sonambulo, The Batman, Marvel Super Hero Squad), Marvel and DC’s Scott Koblish (Marvel Adventures: Iron Man, Final Crisis Legion of Super-Heroes), Bongo’s Phil Ortiz (The Simpsons), and Aspen Comics Vince Hernandez (Dellec, Soulfire, Fathom), David Wohl (Executive Assistant Iris, Witchblade and many more) and Peter Steigerwald (Soulfire, NBC’s Heroes and many more).
 
“Judging by the line-up, we’re looking at a team of individuals who have cut quite a swath through the comics industry,” co-owner/promotions director Mike Wellman stated.  “A world without Witchblade, Fraggle Rock comics and Batman cartoons would be a very sad place indeed.  That said, I’d like to thank them all not only for taking time out of their schedules to meet with fans, but for doing what they do in the first place!  They are today’s myth-makers.” 
 
FREE COMIC BOOK DAY will be held at The Comic Bug on Saturday, May 1st from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  However, many of the artists and writers will be taking shifts throughout the day.  Check The Comic Bug’s website for a particular creator’s schedule.
