Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Classic Carson of Venus Comes to American Mythology!

American Mythology is spearheading a bold new era for fantasy and adventure with “Fear on Four Worlds,” an epic event that unites the iconic heroes of literary great Edgar Rice Burroughs into a shared comic book universe! Beginning with the special one-shot Carson of Venus #1 in June, the four-part “Fear on Four Worlds” storyline will continue across additional special issues in the ensuing months: Moon Maid #1Pellucidar #1, and The Land That Time Forgot #1, and the aftershocks of this cataclysmic event will ripple through individual miniseries throughout 2018 and beyond!

The first chapter of “Fear on Four Worlds” premieres with Carson of Venus #1, written by Christopher Mills and debuting the art of newcomer Cyrus Mesarcia. Two worlds collide as a group of unlikely explorers from Caspak – the prehistoric realm known to Burroughs fans as “The Land that Time Forgot” – leap across our solar system to the danger-fraught landscape of Venus. Stalked by alien beasts and treacherous villains, their only hope for survival lies in a legendary figure from eighty years in Earth’s past: long-lost astronaut Carson Napier!

 

The debut issue of Carson of Venus features a wide selection of cover variants, providing fans and retailers with the freedom of choice:

  • “Pulptastic” Main Cover by Mike Wolfer
  • “Visions of Venus” Variant by interior artist Cyrus Mesarcia
  • “Character Design” Limited Edition Variant, also by Mesarcia, limited to a print run of only 350 comics
  • “Blank Sketch” Variant, perfect for professional and aspiring artists to illustrate

Carson Napier, the protagonist of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Venus Series, debuted in 1934’s Pirates of Venus as an ambitious rocket pilot intent on reaching Mars, but due to a miscalculation, his ship hurtled out of control. His trajectory drawing him towards the Sun, Napier survived by crash-landing on the cloud-enshrouded planet Venus. Marooned and forever barred from returning to Earth, he quickly found himself in the midst of an alien war for dominance, a reluctant hero facing monsters, winged men, and atomic-powered barbarians.

American Mythology’s revival of Carson Napier as a 21st Century hero (and the cornerstone of their Burroughs-inspired science fiction universe) marks a bold new era for the publisher, as they make time-honored concepts of star-spanning fantasy accessible to curious newcomers while simultaneously rewarding lifelong fans with an expansion that both respects and modernizes iconic characters. “Fear on Four Worlds” is a perfect jumping-on point for new readers, an initiative guaranteed to deliver innovative, captivating storytelling month after month.

Adam Green’s Hatchet Comes to American Mythology Comics

hatchetAmerican Mythology makes its first announcement for an upcoming line of horror comics that will leave fans screaming for more. The company is bringing the slasher horror trilogy Hatchet back to fans in early 2017, promising all the gory fun of the cult classic films as only Victor Crowley can bring. Hold on to your seats, it’s going to be a bloody good time.

The Hatchet series has been a staple of horror movie lovers since the original film premiered in 2006, and who can blame them with a who’s who of horror legends appearing in the trilogy like Kane Hodder, Danielle Harris, Robert Englund, Tony Todd, Sid Haig, and Zach Galligan. Based in the folklore and voodoo of the back swamps of the Louisiana bayou, the story tells the sad tale of a deformed boy and what it takes to make a rampaging psychopath who’s handy with power tools. Enter a young girl named Marybeth, looking for her own revenge, and you’ll see why writer/director Adam Green hit slasher gold with the movies.

Under partnership with the series’ creator/licensor Adam Green and ArieScope Pictures, American Mythology promises to take the story in bold new directions, giving fans what they expect from the series, but also delving into as yet unexplored parts of Victor Crowley’s bloody past with not just one, but a series of planned story arcs revolving around the character. The company has already recruited a seasoned cast of veteran artists guaranteed to satisfy even the most hard core of horror fanatics with Andrew Mangum drawing the book’s interior art and covers by the likes of Greg LaRocque, Buz Hasson, and Ken Haesser.

And if that wasn’t enough to whet your horror appetite, the Hatchet series is only the tip of the proverbial butcher knife with the company’s plans to keep readers up all night in 2017 with their “Year of Horror”. AM cracked open the closet door this year with their new Dark line of comics, spawning titles like the hit independent series Werewolves vs Dinosaurs, but the publisher is blowing the proverbial hinges off with an upcoming 2017 horror catalog of some of the biggest names in the genre.

American Mythology Snags Roddenberry Entertainment’s Days Missing Volume 3

American Mythology has announced the acquisition of the third and final installment of the critically acclaimed comic book series Days Missing by Roddenberry Entertainment.The series had previously been published by Archaia.

Days Missing: Enox will be released in late 2016 as a full-color hardcover book. In anticipation of the new graphic novel, American Mythology will re-release the first two volumes of the series in both digital and physical form. Days Missing: Enox comes from science-fiction leader Roddenberry Entertainment, who broke in to the world of comics six years ago with the Days Missing series and has since also released the dynamic graphic novel WORTH.

Days Missing: Enox concludes this saga of The Steward, an ancient being whose ability to “fold” time has resulted in critical human events being extracted from our memories and absent from any historical record. Their existence is not remembered, but the events of these days have forever changed the course of human evolution. In this epic finale, the haunting voice of Enox materializes, giving form to the Steward’s nemesis and unquestionable purpose to his existence. Civilization is caught in the crossfire as these two immortals engage in a battle that will forever decide our fate.

Days Missing and Days Missing: Kestus will be re-released digitally and printed versions will be available in-store, with Vol. 1 scheduled for July and Vol. 2 for August. American Mythology is currently running a Kickstarter Campaign to bring Days Missing: Enox to market.

The Eagle soars again! It’s been over twenty years since Neil Vokes’ cult classic hero Eagle has graced the paneled pages of new comics. American Mythology Productions is bringing back the indie sensation with brand new chapters to the martial arts master detective’s ongoing saga.

Created by comics icon Neil Vokes and Rich Rankin in 1986 during the original ‘80s black and white indie comic explosion, Eagle’s return to fans has been a long overdue and a welcome addition to American Mythology’s rapidly expanding catalogue of titles. The new comic will follow the supernatural adventures of the vigilante Richard Eagle in his constant battle to find justice at the end of a sword.

Not only will Vokes and his new publisher be bringing one of his signature characters back to life, there are also plans to release new stories based on his Death’s Dark Angel (previously called Death’s Head) character, a dark future reflection of the twisted killer The Eagle will become. Both tales will entwine into a larger “Vokesverse” the publisher plans to help spotlight the imaginative artistic mastery of its creator with additional releases of Dark Tales from The Vokesverse. These stories highlight a career that spans more than three decades with suspense and blood-drenched creations in an incredible universe of nightmares, monsters, and mayhem.

American Mythology Productions (AM) will launch The Eagle: Resurgent as a hauntingly ink-washed 48-page comic book that celebrates the first classic tale from the original series and features an all-new story that breathes fresh life into the cult hero.
