To celebrate the upcoming launch of their August release in their “10 for 10” initiative, Aspen Comics will be giving their fans and readers the opportunity to decide that month’s all new series. The choice will be offered between the following two properties:
Awaken Skies - Coping with high school is difficult enough, but when a young girl named Hilary makes the startling discovery that she has the ability of flight, her normal life suddenly takes on an all-new meaning. But, there are others who know of Hilary’s unique abilities, and they will stop at nothing to possess her in their pursuit of shifting the world’s power balance of mankind itself. High school doesn’t seem so difficult anymore.
Overtaken - Journalist Will Harden is well equipped for most situations, but nothing can prepare him for what’s about to come. Relocating from the big city to a small mountain town with his wife, everything is turned upside-down the moment she goes missing. Are the rumors of alien abductions true or did something far worse happen to his wife? No matter the cause, Harden will not stop until he uncovers the truth, or dies trying.
Both all new properties are created and will be written by Frank Mastromauro, co-creator of Shrugged and Dellec, and will feature the “10 for 10” incentives package including a $1 first issue price, an Aspen Reserved Edition cover, original hand drawn covers, Aspen Retailer Exclusive covers, and future covers by J. Scott Campbell, Eric “Ebas” Basaldua and more.
Aspen has made the online voting process simple for fans to select their favorite choice of Aspen’s two candidates: whichever book’s official Facebook fan page: facebook.com/AwakenSkies or facebook.com/OvertakenComic has the most “Likes” by 10:00 am PST Friday, March 1st will be chosen as Aspen’s next new series. Each page will be updated daily with first looks, artwork, news and more. Aspen encourages fans to select their choice and share their favorite with their friends.
For more information, Aspen will be posting updates on their official Aspen Facebook page as well as www.aspencomics.com.
