“Back in February’s PREVIEWS there was a book from Asylum Press called Fearless Dawn that went largely unnoticed by fans and retailers. The entire industry went on rolling without giving it a second glance, and like many small press books it nearly slipped into obscurity without reaching the core readers in our hobby. But when a copy of it made its way across my desk, I knew from first glance it was something special that people needed to see” commented Jim Kuhoric of Diamond Comics Distributors.

“I am excited to bring Fearless dawn to a full-color series,” says creator Steve Mannion,” this is a dream project and I’m having a blast.” “We’ll be updating the website and blog on a regular basis so fans can see pencil to ink pages, colors, thumbnails and interact with Steve,” says publisher Frank Forte.

“Steve Mannion is one of the most underrated artists in comics. Part Dave Stevens, part Wally Wood his art encapsulates everything I love about comic books,” says Rick Remender (Punisher, Fear Agent)
