Coming this March, Alias Comics picks up two exciting new series, ORION THE HUNTER from the team of Blue Water Productions, and VALKYRIES by screenwriter Kevin Grevioux!

Writer Scott Davis and artist Alex Sunder tackle the newest title from Blue Water Productions: ORION THE HUNTER – a four-issue monthly mini-series ripped from the pages of Blue Water’s one-shot, THE ODYSSEY, as Olympia's greatest hunter, Orion seeks the ultimate purpose of his immortal life and is thrust in the middle of a conspiracy that can destroy Olympus!

“The Orion story had been percolating in my head for such a long time. I am thrilled with the way it turned out…the perfect blend of first class artwork and a roller coaster ride of a story,” said ORION writer, Scott Davis.

Also joining Alias in March, actor/screenwriter Kevin Grevioux (UNDERWORLD) and artist Leonel Castellani bring you VALKYRIES #1.

VALKYRIES is an all-new limited series about a young Valkyrie who doesn't exactly follow "Odinian" protocol when it comes to choosing warriors to enter Valhalla. Typically in Viking lore, only the strong and the brave are allowed in the halls of Valhalla. She, however, has a compassion for the least likely individuals to enter Viking heaven. People who are sick and infirmed, and not necessarily the brave and the bold.

“She looks more at the heart of a person rather than his prowess as a warrior,” adds Grevioux. “She even brings injured or dying animals to Valhalla, where they recover and become immortal. As you might guess, this makes her an outcast among the other Valkyries.

“What I like about Alias is that they take chances and create top notch books. Both [Publisher] Brett Burner and [Executive Director] Mike Miller have an intuitive grasp of the industry,” Grevioux continues. “They helped me out tremendously, because a comic book script is NOT a screenplay and I tend to over-write. It's been a cool experience so far and I hope to be working with these guys for a long time to come.”

All of these great comics will hit shops everywhere this March, courtesy of the creators and studios of Alias Comics!
