Aspen Comics Debuts New Fairy Tale Adventure Series Damsels in Excess This July
Aspen Comics’ second all-new original series, Damsels in Excess #1, created by Vince Hernandez, will debut on July 23rd, 2014. Below are several covers available for the first issue.
Aspen Comics will be releasing their second all-new original series of 2014 this July 23rd, with the fairy tale adventure series, Damsels in Excess. Created and written by Vince Hernandez (Fathom: Kiani, Charismagic) and featuring artwork by Mirka Andolfo (Chaos!) and Simone Di Meo, this new property stars five princesses struggling to hold power over the Five Realms, a land cursed with the extinction of man. Creator Hernandez states:
“Damsels in Excess is the tale of five respective kingdoms commanded by these unique and formidable princesses, in unison, facing a catastrophic set of circumstances in an ancient and magical world. However, the story itself is written in what I like to call a ‘contemporary fairy tale’ fashion, so readers will hopefully find this experience both familiar in the fantasy sense, yet modern in the way the narrative comes across on the page. I’m very excited to see how readers will respond to this type of reality show format set in an ancient land.”
Damsels in Excess #1 is available now for pre-order and features covers by series artist Mirka Andolfo, along with incentive covers by Elizabeth Torque and Agnes Garbowska. The publishers will also accompany the release with a special SDCC 2014 variant by Siya Oum to be revealed soon, in conjunction with the release of Damsels in Excess #1 during the week of Comic Con International in July.
