In February Previews you will see the solicitation for Volume 1 of Morbid Myths! It will be in comic stores in April 2008! It is 104 pages and published by Alterna Comics with the art and story by Hard Way udios.

The Diamond Order Code is:
FEB08 3421
Page: 210


You can read a little more about it and see some sample pages here:
http://www.comicrelated.com/commentary/080114001.html

Here are a couple of excerpts from Reviews of Morbid Myths:

The artwork was well paced and brought out the emotions that each
character was experiencing. As far as the Job the narrator goes, he ranks right up there with The Crypt Keeper.
- Gary Rodrigue (Comicnews.info)

There was some really sharp monochrome artwork in this issue. If this
team will be on-board for the duration of the series, it'll have a very quality look to back any future content.
- 3 star review by Alex Haas (Indycomicreview.com)

...could easily fit in between the worlds of Army of Darkness and
Shaun of the Dead... (Morbid Myths #1) Mixing a smartly dark sense of humor with absurd curiosity... (Morbid Myths #2)
- C Zuga (Skullring.org)

The characters immediately draw you in. They may be weird but they
definitely are likable. You'll find yourself instantly caring about them.
- 5 star review by Richard Vasseur (Jazmaonline.com)

...a richly etched-out and stunningly well-inked ongoing series...
- Wizard Comics Magazine (Top 40 Indie Must-Reads of 2007)

The art by Dwayne Biddix is cool, indie realistic black and white stuff but he really does make the story flow along, keeping your attention page by page.
- 8/10 review by Iann Robinson (Former MTV VJ)

Morbid Myths is lighter than most EC comics, and takes itself less
seriously than The Twilight Zone ever did, and because of its tone, and lack of pretension, ends up being more enjoyable, as if it isn't a comic anthology at all but a series of well known urban myths being told around a camp fire.
- 3 star review by Josh Buchin (Silverbulletcomics.com)

Overall, Morbid Myths is a great effort with great art, good pacing a good horror comic host and some good stories.
- T.E. Pouncy (Geeksofdoom.com)

While neither of these stories are necessarily (in my jaded opinion)
"scary" in that "sends you screaming from your bed at night" sense, they do get under your skin and lay into you with a vague disquiet.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that's good horror storytelling.
- 4 star review by Alex Haas (Indycomicreview.com)

Make sure to go to your local comic store today and tell them you want
to PREORDER this comic from them that they must order it for you! Look for Volume 2 coming later this year! Thanks and we hope you pick up a copy and love it as much as everyone else seems to have so far!

Also, check out our other comics in Previews Catalog in Feb! Go to http://www.hardwaystudios.com/solicitations to see all the solicitations by month!

Thanks and we hope you enjoy all of our books!

Thanks for the compliments guys! Hopefully the orders will continue to come in and be very strong so there will be a volume 2! I think everyone will enjoy vol. 2 as it marks the return of the "Library Crew" make a comeback in a big way! Thanks again and thanks for the help spreading the word, I will keep pushing away to make sure you guys get to read the return of some of your favorite characters and if you want to continue helping we are very honored to have your help!
