Manga Darkchylde features a  new mythology, new look, and a new attitude, in a brand new, ALL AGES re-interpretation of an enduring fan favorite!

The Sinister Sisters of Shadow have come to Salem, Georgia to seek an audience with Ariel Chylde, a young girl who just discovered she can  assume the form and abilities of the  creatures from her many nightmares! Poor Ariel only wants to use her  curse for good, but the creepy Sisters seem to have something else in mind...

Creator Randy Queen first launched  Darkchylde in 1996,  a tale about  the haunted teen with  a kind heart, and  a cursed ability. With  its beautiful art and  captivating story,  it quickly  became  one the hottest books in America,  out sold the X-men and Spider-man in European markets, and spawned a line of best selling toys, trading cards, statues, lithographs, and apparel!

Now Randy returns to comics to write, draw, and re-imagine for a new generation, the character that  made him famous! Featuring his most compelling story, and gorgeous art to date, this special 32-page first issue: “Shadowmaker” Part I  is sure to be embraced by Darkchylde’s worldwide fans.

“It'll be great to be in shops again,” says Randy, “and  this will be one of the most visually arresting, high spirited, and entertaining reads  of 2005! All-ages doesn’t mean solely for kids, because we’ve got something for everyone! The heart and  sentiment of Iron Giant,  the dark and profound themes  seen in Lion King,  married with the sheer exhilaration, verve and sophistication of The Incredibles. All  with an  edge, and energy that’s uniquely Darkchylde! If you’re a fan of sequential storytelling,  you’re in for a treat.”

Darkchylde: Shadowmaker Part I arrives in stores February 2, 2005 with a retail price of $2.99.
