Now that everything is finalized and the legal rig-a-ma-roll is taken care of, it is my GREAT pleasure to announce that...

*AHEM* Drum roll, please...

Thank you.

...that we've just SIGNED A DEAL WITH ALTERNA COMICS!!! I think the press release that Alterna just put out sums it up best:

Levittown, NY - October 16th, 2007 - Stephen Lindsay and Michael Bartolotta's "Jesus Hates Zombies: Those Slack-Jaw Blues" now has a new official home at Alterna Comics. The book, which follows the travels of Jesus Christ as he's turned from holy savior to zombie slayer, is both a fan and reviewer favorite and has been critically acclaimed for its irreverent humor, fantastic artwork, and smart writing.

An Alterna Comics exclusive cover version by Michael Bracco (Birth, Novo) will parody Amazing Fantasy #15, with Jesus (instead of Spider-Man) jumping down into a crowd of reaching zombies with his zombie friend Laz, in hand. The original cover art that was drawn by Jeff McComsey (American Terror/High Noon Presents) will be available as an 11x17 promo poster and as a possible 2nd print run edition of the JHZ anthology book. The book is due out in time for Christmas and is sure to be on many comic fans' wish lists.

When Stephen was asked by publisher Peter Simeti if he was interested in signing on with Alterna, he enthusiastically replied, "Man, I can't tell you how excited I am about this!!". Peter Simeti states, "We're very happy to have Stephen and Lauren on board and we're happy to provide their Jesus Hates Zombies anthology with a larger production run and the attention it deserves. We can't wait until April when Jesus Hates Zombies will team up with Stephen's other creation, Lincoln Hates Werewolves, in its own 2 part Graphic Novel release! The art for those two graphics will be created by Lauren Monardo, who has got to be one of the flat-out best comic artists I've seen in years."

So be on the look-out for the Alterna version of Those Slack-Jaw Blues, as well as the up-coming Jesus Hates Zombies/Lincoln Hates Werewolves epic! And check out some of the other great titles from Alterna, including the books by a couple of my friends: Birth and Novo by Michael Bracco, and American Terror: Confessions of a Human Smart Bomb by Jeff McComsey.

Oh yeah, and one final announcement - Lauren and I will be appearing at the Alterna Comics table at the Big Apple Con this November 16, 17, and 18. If you're going, please drop by and introduce yourself!!

~ Stephen
