ALL IN LOVE WITH ALIAS THIS FEBRUARY

Alias Comics announces its February 2006 titles!



San Diego, California (November 28, 2005) – This February, St. Valentine brings the love from Alias Comics, with titles such as THE LEGEND OF ISIS, and LULLABY, as well as a new chance for readers to pick up past favorites, like TED NOODLEMAN: BICYCLE DELIVERY BOY!



Also lined up from Alias this February – an all-new one-shot comic, TEMPEST, to benefit the victims of this past summer’s Hurricane Katrina.



By writer Ben Avery and an all-star cast of artists, TEMPEST is the story of a normal man who writes stories of heroics and tragedy. But now, surrounded by news of tragedy and disaster, confronted with his own limitations, and facing the lifting veil of innocence, he is forced to ask some difficult questions. TEMPEST is a story of hope in the face of pain; beauty in the face of evil; strength in the face of solitary weakness.



Joining Avery on this project are such artists as Randy Green (WITCHBLADE), Javier Saltares (WOLVERINE), Sherwin Schwartzrock (ARMOR QUEST), Sergio Cariello (BATMAN), Mike Worley, Tom Bancroft (OPPOSITE FORCES), Phil Hester (GREEN ARROW), Gary Martin (THE MOTH), and many more!



Proceeds from the sale of TEMPEST will be donated to the Disaster Relief efforts of the Salvation Army.



Also this month, TED NOODLEMAN rides again, as Alias Comics offers readers a second chance to pick up this fan-acclaimed trade paperback by its rising star creators, Jim Keplinger (SHADOWHAWK) and Ryan Ottley (INVINCIBLE)!



TED NOODLEMAN is a below-average, delusional boy who spends his days delivering packages on his bicycle … but in his own mind he’s so much more! Superhero, Cowboy, Knight … it’s all in a days work for this delivery boy!



“Ted Noodleman is a project Ryan [Ottley] and I let loose and held nothing back from. Ted was designed to explore and exploit genres and form, and that's exactly what he did in his many funny, off-beat, unseemly and usually undignified adventures,” said writer Jim Keplinger. “Ted Noodleman is a part of our souls... which probably doesn't bode well for the hereafter.”



All of these great comics and many more will hit shops everywhere this February, courtesy of Alias Comics!

“It’s been a fun book for me, and I really do have mixed feelings about having to leave,” said Ottney. “On one hand, I’ve just got too much to do these days and I had to drop something before I dropped it ALL. Plus, it’s just time to give someone else a shot at her. But on the other hand, it’s been hard to preview some of the stories and art from later issues that I’m not a part of. I feel like I’m sending my little girl out into the world without me. But the incoming creative team is doing a great job, and I couldn’t choose any more capable hands to leave her in.”

"For everyone who misses having the expressiveness of J. Scott Campbell on a more regular basis, or the fun of an "old school" Image Comic, this book is for you. Hilinski is my favorite hyper-talented, Jim Lee/J. Scott Campbell/Michael Turner super-clone." -Tim Seeley, artist GI Joe.
