PR: IDW Celebrates Peter David's Fallen Angel #25 by artist signing and free original Art

Note: I received this in an email from artist J.K. Woodward (the artist on Fallen Angel) yesterday, and promised I'd pass it along to you guys... hopefully, at least a few of you live where you can take advantage of this!

For more than two years, readers of Fallen Angel have been enjoying a dark atmospheric tale of a former celestial being who continually defies THE BOSS by helping those who can't help themselves. Now reaching issue 25, Fallen Angel is the longest running title in IDW Publishing history.

To celebrate this landmark issue, IDW is giving away original pages of J.K. Woodward's series artwork at two different promotional events.

This issue will be special in more than just number, though. Peter David is promising an absolute upheaval in the story, "The great thing about a creator-owned series such as "Fallen Angel" is that I can unilaterally kick over the apple cart without having to run it by a plethora of Powers That Be, and that's what's happening. The great thing about working with (artist) J.K. Woodward is knowing that he's able to take whatever I throw at him and knock it out of the park." IDW's Editor-In-Chief, Chris Ryall, calls J.K.'s work consistently brilliant and "nothing short of awe-inspiring". J.K. is thrilled with the series success, "Peter gave me some exciting challenges with this story and I've had a great time illustrating. There's a reason I've stayed with this series for over 2 years!"

J.K. reveals that loyal readers will be rewarded with bonus features in this issue, including a double cover and character gallery, but that the extra content also makes it a great time for new readers to jump in. “…It not only introduces the characters but gives a summary of the story so far. It’s a perfect jumping on point for first time Fallen Angel readers.”
As for the free artwork, a page will be given to each of the first 10 people to attend one of these promotional events:

Wed March 26, from 5-8pm:
The Comic Bug
1807 Manhattan Beach Blvd
Manhattan Beach, 90266
www.thecomicbug.com

Wed April 2, from 7-9pm:
Golden Apple Comics
7018 Melrose Ave, LA 90038
www.goldenapplecomics.com

Artist J.K. Woodward will be on hand to sign his pages, copies of the comic or pretty much anything the fans want to stick under his sharpie.

OK, it's me again... Fallen Angel is really a great comic book; I followed it for quite a while, and only dropped it when I was forced to cut back my comics spending bigtime. I'm glad to hear it's reached this milestone!

  2. You're welcome, J.K. -- I just hope if any of my readers win one of the pieces, they'll at least let me know!

    And congratulations on your success, too!
