Official Press Release

PARK RIDGE-NJ - After Hours Press announces “Sherman’s Room,” a comic book about a little boy who escapes the reality of life in the fantasy world of his vivid imagination.

The all-ages black & white cartoon book written and illustrated by award-winning comic creator Chris Eliopoulos (Fantastic Four: Franklin Richards – Son of A Genius, Desperate Times, Star Wars Tales) hits the stands in September, 2005. The story shows how little Sherman escapes into his personal fantasy world with space aliens, superheroes, and other surreal creations to get away from his overbearing family.

In the real world, Sherman is pressured by his parents and picked on by his sister. Yet in his bedroom, Sherman is like a superhero with limitless power. “This is the comic book that children and parents can read and enjoy together,” says Eliopoulos, a father of two. “The comics strips are short, so it is perfect bedtime reading.”

Eliopoulos is a multi-talented comic book and cartoon creator. His work appears regularly in Sports Illustrated and in the popular reference books “The Complete Idiot’s Guide.” He is best known for his award-winning work as a letterer for Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Image Comics, and Dark Horse. His popular comic strip “Desperate Times” appeared as a backup feature in “The Savage Dragon” for over three years, until it was launched as a standalone comic book.

“This is good, wholesome family fun,” says After Hours Press President Buddy Scalera. “This is the kind of book you give a kid to get them hooked on comic books.”

The comic book will be available in September 2005 in most comic book retail stores through Diamond Comics Distribution. The publisher strongly suggests that people pre-order a copy in July from the Diamond Previews catalogue.
