AAM Markosia are proud to announce that the entire first issue of new series Lazarus: Immortal Coils will be available to preview at the Bristol Comic Expo, May 9th to 11th, 2008.
Shipping to stores in June, and available to order now from Previews, # APR083485, Lazarus: Immortal Coils is about the Biblical figure resurrected, discovers he's an immortal, and demons are on earth plotting to take us over. Fuelled by revenge, Lazarus rushes headlong into a war against a legion of shape-shifting demons that are any and every monster and invading power throughout history.
"Lazarus is a fascinating character," says writer/creator Joseph Gauthier. "He's this important, but largely forgotten person from the bible that people just seem to overlook. Here's a man who was best friends with Jesus, resurrected only to see his friend killed days later. He died, went to hell, and came back. Sprinkle that with the question of his mortality, and how could someone not write about him? Lazarus: Immortal Coils is full of biblical events, but twisted in ways you wouldn't expect."
Vincent S. Moore, columnist for www.comicswaitingroom.com and editor at Astounding and DarkStorm Studios comments: "Lazarus: Immortal Coils is a heady mix of Biblical history, kick-ass art, an eternal mission, revenge, great story, and demons in the guise of men, walking amongst us. Who would have thought that the perfect hero for the 21st Century would come from the 1st? Only Joseph P. Gauthier, one of the freshest voices to enter the comics game in a long time, that's who. Buy the book and get in on the ground floor of the career of the next superstar writer and the newest hero on the block."
