CBGB was the legendary New York club that broke such acts as The Ramones, Blondie, Talking Heads and Television – to name a few. BOOM! Studios and CBGB Holdings will release a sneak preview of the CBGB comic book mini-series at the SXSW CBGB Stories panel hosted by Seymour Stein, president and chairman of Sire Records. The first issue, with a Jaime Hernandez [Love & rockets] cover, will hit the shelves in July. During the CBGB Stories panel, a limited edition, original CBGB single page comic by Jesse Blaze Snider (DEADPOOL, TOY STORY) and Eisner Award-winner Chuck BB (BLACK METAL) will be passed out to the audience and press.
BOOM! Studios has built a good reputation as a comics publisher that both licences great properties [Uncle Scrooge, Cars, Die Hard, Farscape] and quality titles [Incorruptible, 10, Irredeemable] produced by some of comics’ most talented writers and artists [Mark Waid, Keith Giffen, Mike Mignola].
One of their most successful franchises is Farscape – they’ve produced several mini-series and have an ongoing series to boot. And now, they are about to unleash a unique Farscape series: Farscape: Scorpius – written by Farscape co-creator Rockne S. O’Bannon and featuring TV’s most intriguing villain! You can get on board by checking out the ten-page preview – along with an alternate cover, and information for ordering Farscape: Scorpius #0 following the jump.
