PARAMU, NJ -- Some people call it an homage. We prefer to thinking of it

as "ripping off from the best."

After Hours Press's, Foxwood Falcons #1 (on sale July 11th) gives homage

to the iconic cover of Justice League of America #1, originally

published by DC Comics.

The Foxwood Falcons is all-ages comic book about a twelve-year-old boy

whose life is turned upside-down when he learns, after his father's

death, that the powers and duties of Vault Guardian are now his.

The original Justice League of America cover was illustrated in 1987 by

Kevin Maguire. The Foxwood Falcons cover is illustrated and colored by

Bernard Chang.

"That cover has always been one of my favorite comic covers of all time.

And since this is a team book, of sorts, I was happy to ask Bernard

Chang to use that layout," explains creator/writer Darren Sanchez. "If

you're going to rip off a layout, rip it off from the best cover you

can! Seriously, thanks to Kevin Maguire for that. And to Bernard for

doing such an outstanding job."

Foxwood Falcons is a "GOONIES" meets "HARRY POTTER" type of story that

will bring to mind the question, "When does the movie come out?"

Selected in Wizard Magazine, as one of the "Top-40 Indie comics coming

out in 2007."

Beautifully illustrated by up-and-coming artist, Mathew Tow (Impossible

Tales), the Foxwood Falcons is Darren Sanchez's third, AHP mini-series.

(Based on the Sanchez novel)

"As a father, I want other parents to know that Foxwood Falcons is safe

reading for kids of all ages," says Sanchez. "We've created a comic that

will spark the imagination of young readers. Give it a try."
