ARE YOU ADDICTED TO ALIENS?

December 31, 1969

Xenoholics Will Get Fans Addicted to Out-of-This-World New Series

Berkeley,
CA – 12 July 2011 – For all your addictions of the extraterrestrial
variety, from wild conspiracy theories to late night encounters
with probes, the XENOHOLICS are here to help! In October, writer Joshua
Williamson (DEAR DRACULA) and artist Seth Damoose (I HATE GALLANT GIRL)
will offer their tongue-in-cheek support group to the masses by way of a
new series from Image Comics and Shadowline.


Dan
Duncan is contributing painted covers that make even little green men
look good, and Damoose provides quirky, charismatic interior art with
lots of personality and animation. Williamson promises that XENOHOLICS,
as USAToday put it, “won’t be a book that skimps on the out-of-towners.”


â“XENOHOLICS
is about aliens and I didn’t want it to be one of those books where the
aliens are only hinted at,†Williamson commented. â“But aliens aren’t
the only stars! There are also the crazy people who believe in them.
I’ve always been fascinated with people who claimed to have been
abducted or believe with all their hearts that aliens are out there…
watching us. This is their story as they get thrown into a larger
conspiracy, and we get to see how they react to it. Our main goal was to
take the alien genre and spin the clichés on their heads, creating
without a doubt the weirdest book I’ve ever written.â€


“XENOHOLICS will
do for aliens what CHEW did for cannibals,” said Shadowline Publisher
Jim Valentino. “It’s smart, funny and surprising. A perfect addition to
Shadowline’s commitment to excellence in diversity and, I believe, our
next hit.”


Believe
it or not, aliens are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to
conspiracies in this laugh-out-loud comic! While the XENOHOLICS may be
there to help each other, it appears that not everyone in the group is
being entirely honest about their encounters. Once readers have been
introduced to XENOHOLIC’s motley crew of alien addicts, they’ll wonder,
will any of these nuts ever be able to prove that aliens do in fact
exist?


XENOHOLICS
#1, a 32-page full color mature comedy comic book that will appeal to
fans of CHEW and BOMB QUEEN, will be available for order in the August
issue of Previews Catalog and goes on sale October 19, 2011 for $3.50.
