By Jon Hook

April 6, 2006 - 10:37

Coming in June 2006, Alias Comics releases 18 new books, including returning favorites such as SIXGUN SAMURAI and CHRONO MECHANICS, alongside the wrap of one werewolf story, LETHAL INSTINCT, and the start of a whole new one - REVERE!

LETHAL INSTINCT #6 concludes a storyline that began with the series debut in April 2005, telling the story of a cop fighting his for control of his mind and body, to control the werewolf that lurks within. In the final issue of the storyline, readers will know the answers to many long-running questions and an ultimate meeting between the two werewolves, Wolf and Furious! Following this storyline, series creator/writer Romulo Soares is already plotting future adventures for LETHAL INSTINCT at Alias Comics.

�We are producing the new series for Lethal Instinct, the new story arc, titled �Starchild,� will have four editions. Bart Thompson is working with me in the script and with great art done by Rivaldo Gama, and we have something special for the fans � a crossover with 10th Muse,� said Soares. �Alias is great and easy to work with. They believe in the project, and I�m happy that Alias is the home for the Lethal Instinct series.�

But Soares isn�t the only one bringing wild werewolf wonderment to Alias Comics � creators Ed Lavallee and Grant Bond join Alias Comics in June for the release of their all-new series, REVERE!

In REVERE #1, Lavallee and Bond explore the secret life of the renowned Revolutionary-era patriot, Paul Revere, as a skilled silversmith and a deadly werewolf hunter.

�I was toying with the idea of creating a monster hunter-type character, but wanted a different setting, something that would challenge the character due to a lack of technology,� said writer/creator Ed Lavallee of the inspiration of REVERE.

Reviewers are already calling REVERE, �An impressive debut, well written, with an evocative art style.� (Reviewer, Alan Porter;
