Official Press Release

In an unprecedented move, Image Comics Shadowline has teamed up with MySpace Comic Books to release the entirety of the upcoming ALETHEIA weeks before release.

"With the ever increasing amount of new titles on the stands, we really wanted to do something new and different to help ALETHEIA stand out," said Shadowline President Jim Valentino. "Teaming up with MySpace in this manner gave the series a spotlight it may not have had otherwise had and we don't doubt it will result in many more readers heading into stores for the book."

The one-time MySpace pre-release preview of ALETHIA #1 details the origins of the series, showing the gods never left the Earth and have a secret, yet strict stranglehold on our society. When one woman loses the love of her life them, she goes on a quest for revenge against these hidden kings of humankind.

ALETHEIA #1, a 32-page full color comic book for $3.50, will be in stores March 29th. The full preview can be seen at www.myspace.com/comicbooks
