Official Press Release

If you have access to the new September edition of Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine now on stands, please turn to page 30 for a nice little piece about Titans of Finance, a comic book written by R. Walker and illustrated by Josh Neufeld, coming out the first week of September from Alternative Comics. Titans of Finance was also just featured in this week's The Forward, the national Jewish newsweekly. Titans of Finance has also recently received mainstream coverage in Money Magazine, TIME, and The New York Times.

What goes up must come down. It's a natural law that the New Economy just learned all over again. Recent times have been fantastically dramatic in the cloistered world of American business: Narratives full of larger-than-life characters, outsized egos, astonishing hubris, and lots and lots of money. It's action-packed. It makes good comics. Titans of Finance, a new and groundbreaking merger of reality – straight from the business pages – and comix. Meet Ron Perelman, the man who made millions while presiding over the Mighty Marvel Comics train wreck. Thrill to many more of Wall Street's most well-known Icaruses. Never mind Spawn and Spider-man. These are our superheroes now. These tales "hit the mark," says comic book legend Harvey Pekar, and are "a brilliant use of the medium," according to TheStreet.com's James J. Cramer. Best of all, it's all true! Titans of Finance is entirely based on press accounts. The results are mind-blowing. Over the past five years, in fact, Titans has crushed the benchmark S&P 500. You've never seen anything like it – this is one acquisition you won't regret.
