Official Press Release

After two years publishing comic books in the direct market, independent

publisher Super Real Graphics looks to build a new line of quality original

graphic novels, showcasing talented creator-owned offerings, and featuring

diverse concepts and content, all under the banner, Super Real Graphics


The new line looks to utilize a format friendly to readers and retailers

alike, that keeps them affordably priced, just above a single issue comic,

but well below that of trade paperbacks, allowing readers to better sample

the books, and retailers to better stock them. The first title from the line

will be the April releasing, Super Real Graphics Presents: GNOME.

About Gnome:

Gnome is a tale that promises to enchant fans of all ages, from creator Dave

Dwonch (Special Education), and cover artist Super Ugly.

Gnomes are real! Believed to be simple yard decorations, these "Garden

Gnomes" once roamed the Earth as its greatest protectors. Long ago a curse

was placed upon them, petrifying them until the day they were needed to

protect the Earth once more. In 1956 the world was in peril, and one lonely

gnome answered the call.

Publisher Jason Martin on Gnome, and Super Real Graphics Presents, "Gnome is

an all ages book, with smart concepts, scripting, and design, that can

appeal to young, old, male or female, a well rounded tale, that will win

over many hearts, and is a perfect example of what Super Real Graphics new

line of original self-contained books is about! I'm truly ecstatic to offer

Gnome, and future works in this new reader and retailer friendly format, and

sincerely hope that Super Real Graphics Presents can grow into a brand that

both can trust. Gnome is a huge step in that direction!"

With more Super Real Graphics Presents offerings planned, the publisher

looks to build a solid name in the market, with unique and rewarding stories

any fan of the medium can enjoy. Watch for future SRG Presents OGN releases,

and be sure and check out Gnome, now available via Diamond Comic

About Super Real Graphics:

Super Real Graphics began publishing with creator/publisher Jason Martin's

Super Real, which has seen five issues in print, and received great critical

response, over the past two years of release. Super Real is the story of

five reality show participants who each sign million dollar contracts to

become genetically enhanced, in a mash-up of comic book super heroes and

reality television, all told in a loose vibrant style. The ongoing series

has featured variant covers and guest artwork from some of the industry?s

brightest indie talent, including Josh Howard (Dead@17), Jim Mahfood (Grrl

Scouts), and many more. Super Real is set to return to publication later

this year, along with future volumes of Super Real Graphics Presents, and

another big project in development.
