Millions To Be Exposed To Two New Comic Book Series From Dynamite


July 5, 2006, Runnemede, NJ – Dynamite Entertainment announced today that TV Guide is offering another exclusive sneak peak of two all-new comic book series from Dynamite – Highlander #0  and Xena #1!


In cooperation with Universal, Davis Merchandising and TV Guide, Dynamite’s Xena #1 and Highlander #0 will be featured in the July 10th cover dated issue (in stores Thursday July 6th). Previewing the two series follows the successful “first look” that Dynamite provided to TV Guide of their all-new Battlestar Galactica #0 series in May.


The exposure of the comics is expected to reach millions of TV Guides weekly readers, and through it give additional exposure to Xena and Highlander.


“We would like to thank our friends at TV Guide for the additional promotion on these two series. After we worked out the details for the Galactica #0 promotion, we started pitching new promotions to TV Guide and we’re thrilled they took us up on spotlighting Xena and Highlander. Both had great runs on TV – Highlander and Xena both being modern classics – and both new comic book series honor the past of both, while presenting new visions for today’s readers. Though the preview will hit before the comics are in stores, this should help bring attention to direct market retailers, which benefits the comics industry, and is something we can all keep working towards.  We ask that comics fans and retailers once again show their support TV Guide by picking up and carrying this issue,” explained Dynamite Spokesperson J. Allen. “


Xena #1 (MAY063032) is written by John Layman with art by Fabiano Neves.  Cover art is provided by Billy “Uncanny X-Men” Tan, Fabiano Neves,  and a special Photo Cover from the Xena television series.


The first story arc is the perfect place to start for fans both old and new as Xena and her familiar friends (along with the appearance of some familiar enemies) are played as pawns in a battle between the Gods!
