Media Release — Giant monsters! Their existence is incontrovertible — at least to those who have had a close encounter with them. Doris Danger is one of those unlucky few, and she’s determined to prove to the world’s unbelievers that these colossal creatures roam the Earth. Armed only with her camera, she places herself in unfathomably perilous situations in order to get that perfect picture!
Doris’s exploits will be published this November by SLG Publishing in Doris Danger: Giant Monster Stories by Chris Wisnia. The 96-page, black-and-white graphic novel follows Doris as she attempts to document the truth, defying those who will do anything to cover up the existence of giant monsters. With classic, Kirby-inspired artwork and a tongue-in-cheek Silver-Age tone, Doris’s exploits are a dose of dangerous fun.
“I made this book for people like me — people who love Jack Kirby, robots, low-budget 1950’s sci-fi films; realistic, somewhat non-stop army, secret society, and spaceship action, absurd conspiracy theories, romance, bad dialogue, ridiculous plot lines, seventh grade humor, kitsch, and of course…GIANT MONSTERS!” said Wisnia of Doris Danger.
Featuring cover art by Shag, Doris Danger: Giant Monsters will be in stores in November 2009 and is available for pre-order now at comic book stores with the Diamond code SEP09 0572. Its ISBN is 978-1-59362-180-3 and it will retail for $9.95.
