Press Release

03-04-13

Following a month-long online fan voting process to choose Aspen Comics’ next series, the publisher has announced that Overtaken has won the contest and will debut on August 21st as their “10 for 10” release for that month. Created by Frank Mastromauro, this all new sci-fi, action adventure series is described:

Journalist Will Harden is well equipped for most situations, but nothing can prepare him for what’s about to come. Relocating from the big city to a small mountain town with his wife, everything is turned upside-down the moment she goes missing. Are the rumors of alien abductions true or did something far worse happen to his wife? No matter the cause, Harden will not stop until he uncovers the truth, or die trying.

Overtaken will be written by Mastromauro with art by newcomer Marco Lorenzana. Aspen Editor-in-Chief Vince Hernandez discusses Lorenzana’s participation:

“Marco has a truly amazing story on how he showed up on our radar. He was visiting Los Angeles and was staying with family, and on a whim he decided to take a chance and show up at our studio with his portfolio in hand. As it turned out, his artwork was outstanding and Frank asked him to stay. From that day forward Marco spent countless hours honing his craft in the studio and he just took off from there. We’re really excited to have Marco on the project and are eager to show everyone what he’s capable of.”

Aspen will be supporting the release of Overtaken #1 will all of their successful “10 for 10” incentives including the Aspen Reserved Edition and Aspen Retailer Exclusive covers, as well as special variant covers by J. Scott Campbell, Eric Basaldua and more to be announced shortly.

But, there are others who know of Hilary’s unique abilities, and they will stop at nothing to possess her in their pursuit of shifting the world’s power balance of mankind itself. High school doesn’t seem so difficult anymore.
