Official Press Release

June 8th, 2004 (Amarillo, TX) -- When established talents come together

with newcomers and unknowns, diversity is the name of the game. From tales

of unrequited love to comedy to science fiction and beyond, the 2004 issue

of the Cartoon Militia's A UNITED FRONT anthology defines the word eclectic.

Scott Morse (SOULWIND, SOUTHPAW) brings us "Earl," a bear whose adventures

will be appearing in a few other anthologies this year. Jim Mahfood (GRRL

SCOUTS, BAD IDEAS) comes at us with "Clumsy Assassin." Steve Rolston

(POUNDED, QUEEN & COUNTRY) returns to the Militia with his first "Jack

Spade & Tony Two-Fist" strip in four years. Lindsay Satterlee and TEM team

up to illustrate S. Steven Struble's "The Li'l Depressed Boy," which makes

its fourth appearance in the anthology.

A UNITED FRONT 2004 features other stories by Jose Garibaldi (JINGLE BELLE:

DASH AWAY ALL, TEEN HEAVEN), Dave Crosland (HEAVEN LLC, BAD IDEAS), Debbie,

TEM, Corey Barba, Shane Hillman, Lindsay Satterlee, Espen Jorgensen, Erik

Rose, Zach Trover, Jamie McKelvie, and Knut André Solberg.

All this and a cover by alternative comics veteran and normalman creator,

Jim Valentino!

"I'm just floored by the stories we've got this year. The quality goes up

with every issue. We've stormed the gates and staked our flag. Our

forward offensive keeps marching on," said "The General," the Cartoon

Militia's publisher S. Steven Struble.

The 32-page A UNITED FRONT 2004 [JUN04 2326], ships to stores in late

July/Early August with a cover price of $3. Readers, please ask your local

comic book retailer to reserve your copy today.
