Official Press Release

BERKELEY, CA -- Comics industry superstar Robert

Kirkman is going on a five-city, seventy-two hour tour to promote the

debut of his new comic book series, THE ASTOUNDING WOLF-MAN. The tour

takes place over the weekend of May 5th, Free Comic Book Day. Fans in

New York City, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay

Area can meet the writer of WALKING DEAD, ULTIMATE X-MEN and

INVINCIBLE and get FREE copies of THE ASTOUNDING WOLF-MAN #1!

"For Kirkman's first new creator-owned series in four years, we're

doing something big," says Director of Marketing Mark Haven Britt.

"You get an awesome new FREE comic, you get to meet Robert in person,

AND you get to meet him when he's delirious from sleep deprivation

and cross country flights! Come on by! It's gonna be a hoot!"

THE ASTOUNDING WOLF-MAN chronicles the life of workaholic CEO Gary

Hampton. While on a rare family vacation, he's bitten by a werewolf.

Cursed to live his nights as a monster, Gary works to use these evil

powers for the greater good. The story is part superhero, part horror

and a whole lot of fun.

The fun starts the very first minute of Free Comic Book Day at 12:01
