"A child's instinctual need for the comfort of a stuffed animal is rooted in a reality long forgotten by the adult world. The hidden truth is that these companions have been defending children since the dawn of time."
With those words, creator Mike Bullock kicks off his new four-issue mini-series, LIONS, TIGERS AND BEARS, debuting in January from Image Comics. Created and written by Runemaster Studios' Bullock, with pencils, inks and colors by studio partnerJack Lawrence, LIONS, TIGERS AND BEARS is a four-issue mini-series that critics have dubbed "Monsters Inc. meets The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe."

The series revolves around young Joey Price as he discovers that the noises he hears at night aren't just figments of his imagination. Those noises come from the monstrous Beasties, who spend every night trying to "get" little children. Luckily for Joey, his stuffed animals are more than he ever thought they were, as they come to life to defend him from the Beastie perils. Follow young Joey on the adventure of a lifetime as he travels through the Stuffed Animal Kingdom, a journey that puts the fate of all the world's children in his hands and brings him face-to-face with his destiny.

"I really wanted to create something timeless with this story, something anyone of any age could enjoy today, a year from today, ten years from today," says Bullock. "Hopefully, Jack and I have done just that."

LIONS, TIGERS AND BEARS was first previewed at the San Diego Comic-Con International in July of 2004. After receiving several offers from various publishers, Bullock met with Image publisher Erik Larsen and asked Larsen to look through the promotional kit. Larsen was quick to jump on the all-ages book, and wasted no time in snatching up the property for Image Comics.

LIONS, TIGERS AND BEARS is set for release in January of 2005 and can be found in the Image section of the November Diamond Previews. For more information on the book, please drop by www.runemasterstudios.com.
