Urban Myths @ CBR

At Wizard World LA this past weekend, Top Cow announced a new slate of books in their "Pilot Season" program scheduled for summer 2008. A project I created and wrote, URBAN MYTHS, is part of the line-up. Here's what Top Cow editor Rob Levin had to say about it:

In New Athens, you have a modern-day world where people still worship Greek Gods and the Gods still meddle in our lives. It's a neo-mythic book about a Private Investigator nicknamed Jack Medusa, who's actually the son of Medusa. He's been forced to wear a metal mask all his life since he inherited mom's curse. It's really about this guy looking for answers and looking for a way to connect with a world that can never truly see him. I believe Jay initially described the book as "Clash of the Titans" meets "Chinatown," and that's fairly fitting. The world is just starting to come alive through Jorge's work, and it's a place I can't wait to see more of.
