Legendary Comics Premieres Frank Miller's Holy Terror
Holy Terror Releases September 28th, 2011
(Burbank, CA – September 28, 2011) - Legendary Comics announced today that their inaugural release, Frank Miller's (Sin City, The Dark Knight Returns) Holy Terror (ISBN:978-1937278007), exploded into stores today. The book follows hard-boiled hero "The Fixer" and his cat burglar love interest, Natalie Stack, as they try to save Empire City from zealots determined to commit a horrific crime against humanity. The 120-page hardcover is Miller's provocative commentary on how society views its heroes in the era of modern terrorism.
Miller commented, “I’m thrilled to partner with Legendary Comics to help bring this project which I have worked on for so long to fans around the globe. This is a story that redefines and explores terror in its truest form, forcing all of us - including myself – to think about our heroes differently.”
Years in the making, fan interest in this highly anticipated release has reached a fever pitch with over 75,000 views of the trailer online and a standing room only crowd at the Legendary Comics panel featuring Holy Terror at San Diego Comic Con. The book is available online at www.bn.com and www.amazon.com as well as comic shops and bookstores nationwide.
“This has been a long time coming,” stated Legendary Comics Editor-in-Chief Bob Schreck, “but certainly well worth the wait. Frank continues to push the limits of what comics storytelling can do while delivering yet another epic tale that challenges the reader to think while also forcing them to feel.”
Join Legendary Comics Editor-in-Chief Chief, Bob Schreck, and Frank Miller at the Union Square Barnes & Noble in New York City on Friday, October 14 from 7-9pm for a signing and discussion. Autographed copies of Holy Terror will be available for purchase on site.
