July 11th, 2012 – San Diego, CA. / New York, NY. —
Matt Wagner, the creator of Grendel and Mage, Thomas Tull, Executive Producer of 300 & The Dark Knight, and the amazing Simon Bisley (as seen in Lobo, 2000 AD) have pulled together to deliver The Tower Chronicles, which cleverly enough chronicles the cases of John Tower, supernatural bounty hunter. If you’re one of the brave souls fording through the masses at San Diego Comic Con, Legendary Comics and comiXology invite you to stop by the Legendary booth at #3920 and check out the preview firsthand on LG devices.
Or you can feel free to download it right now, because if you don’t have comiXology, you should(my personal recommendation).
You can read the official press release below. Or just take my word for it. I paged through it, it’s awesome.
Legendary Comics (a division of Legendary Entertainment) debuted at Comic-Con International 2012 today the first preview of The Tower Chronicles exclusively on comiXology, the revolutionary digital comics platform.
