Image Comics Collects Sable, Roth & Holden's Fearless Series
Berkeley, CA – 6 October 2011 – Mark Sable, the writer of GROUNDED and the current sell out hit series GRAVEYARD OF EMPIRES, along with co-writer David Roth, and artist PJ Holden were the team that brought us FEARLESS, the story of a literal man without fear. This November, Image Comics will be collecting the entire miniseries into one trade paperback volume for the first time ever.
"Fans who sampled a hit of the single issues have been jonesing for the collected edition of FEARLESS for years," said Sable. "I'm glad they'll finally be able get their fix of the highly addictive tale that David Roth, PJ Holden and I created."
Here's what critics have already said about FEARLESS:
"This is smart, fast paced and gripping superheroics with a unique twist and a great central character.” 5/5 Alasdair Stuart, Firefox News
"...subtle but effective… I do like the way the play with some well-worn superhero conventions, but without trying to be too clever or postmodern about it.” Forbidden Planet International
"...featuring better craft elements than usual, with the slight caveat that it deals with the mindset necessary for vigilante action as much as the abilities to make good on the decisions made while thinking that way." -- Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter
“…interesting at the same time that it is heart-breaking. I was a huge fan of this four issue mini-series published by Image Comics when it was first released… Fearless earns a strong recommendation from me…" 8/10 --WEEBEEGAMERS.COM
The vigilante superhero at the heart of FEARLESS is a bold, even reckless man known as Fear. He's also a man paralyzed by a crippling anxiety disorder who needs an anti-fear drug to fight his war on crime. Hell, he needs it just to get out of bed every day. So what will happen when his drug supply runs out?
FEARLESS, VOL. 1 TP (SEP110339, ISBN: 978-1-60706-467151499), a 128-page full color superhero action comic for $14.99, will be available at a comic store near you on November 16.
