iron and the maiden

the comic's release date and publisher has been announced.

this is something that is really cool in many ways. the most immediate(and only one we can talk about right now) is the message this sends to creators out there who want to stay independent and own their property...yet get something produced that gets great backing.

build it and they will come. jason did this sooo right. one core philosophy of his is simple yet very, very powerful. assemble the right talent. pay them what they deserve. let them do their job.

on august 1st everyone will see the result of that philosophy when this series is released. the dreamhive has been fortunate enough to get to see and read the entire series along with the alternate covers. we've been blown away by everything we've seen and read. it is truley his singular vision backed by a collaborative effort of some of the creative world's top talent:
*francis manapul
*joel gomez
*comic craft
*joe mad!
*jeff matsuda
*christian lichtner
*jim lee
*michael turner
*chris bachalo
...and more to be announced.

good luck to jason and aspen. can't wait until august 1st!! stay tuned for more including how the dreamhive is involved in all this...

oh...we should probably also mention that the image of iron in the banner was created by the dreamhive and is a straight up render with no touch up work.

just a little sneak peek for y'all.
