Thursday, January 22, 2009 – Illustrator/writer Trudy Cooper and co-writer Danny Murphy release their hilarious sci-fi web comic through Shadowline!
For years, web comics fans the world over have thrilled to Trudy Cooper and Danny Murphy’s science fiction romp, PLATINUM GRIT, and now Image Comics’ Shadowline brings it to print!
“PLATINUM GRIT being published by Shadowline is a dream come true for me,” Shadowline Editor Kristen Simon said. “I’ve been a fan of the web comic for many years now and was thrilled when we were able to bring it over to Shadowline’s website as well. Publisher Jim Valentino enjoyed it so much he agreed we needed to print the collections! Fellow fans of PLATINUM GRIT are going to be very happy with this edition.”
PLATINUM GRIT VOL. 1 collects the first five chapters of the hit web comics series, in which the fearless Nils and the timid-but-still-surprisingly-together Jeremy take on the Zodiac (they win), Jer’s insane Scottish relatives (they sort of win) a 1940s private dick (they draw when poor light stops play) and two sets of alien matchmakers (they… almost).
PLATINUM GRIT VOL. 1 (JAN092411), a 184-page B&W tradepaperback for $14.99, will be in-stores March 11th, 2009.
