Official Press Release

He's not a real politician, but then again, it's not a real country!

Veteran actor Gregory Itzin, who portrayed President Logan on the hit

FOX television series "24" has written the Introduction to America Jr., the first paperback collection of the popular online comic strip.

America Jr. follows a tiny town that discovers it is no longer a part

of the United States, and chronicles the citizens' hilarious

misadventures while attempting to emulate the U.S. government.

"We're thrilled to have Gregory involved!" beams co-creator Todd

Livingston. "He's the ideal choice to write the book's introduction…

other than, you know, the actual President. Plus, not only was he on

'24', but 'Firefly' and three different Star Trek series, so working

with him totally satisfies my inner-geek."

No strangers to sci-fi, Livingston and co-creator Nick Capetanakis

were the creative force behind the indie supernatural comedy film

'So, You've Downloaded A Demon' which features Xenia Seeberg of

'Lexx'. Livingston also co-authored the award-winning Image Comics

graphic novels THE BLACK FOREST, THE BLACK FOREST 2, THE WICKED WEST,

THE WICKED WEST 2, and THE LIVING AND THE DEAD.

"As a huge fan of '24', I'm beyond excited to have Gregory Itzin on

board," Capetanakis continues. "Our pretend country - their pretend

President - it's like a match made in heaven, but available at a

store near you."

America Jr. collects the first 150 strips of the daily satirical

comic, which is brilliantly illustrated by Brendon and Brian Fraim

(ANTIQUES – THE COMIC STRIP, KNIGHTS OF THE DINNER TABLE ) and

includes pin-ups by special guest artists and exclusive strips not

presented online.

America Jr. is published by Image Comics with a release date of July

18, 2007 and is currently available for pre-order at your favorite

retailer.
