For Immediate Release:

Arcana Studio Shadowflame #1 Contest

December 6th, 2006 – Arcana Studio (Kade, Ezra, 100 Girls) is proud to announce that Joe Martino’s creation Shadowflame is currently ready to order through Diamond Previews. To celebrate this achievement we are having a contest for people who purchase issue 1 of Shadowflame. Anyone who purchases issue 1 will be included in a raffle to win a Shadowflame bust sculpted by Loren Moore.

Joe Martino says “I am very happy to see the book in the catalog and ready to go. Sean sent me a few of the printed books and they look phenomenal. We are also happy to offer one of these amazing busts to one lucky Shadowflame fan.”

In the first issue of Shadowflame we see Tom Wyatt at the end of his rope a month after the murder of his wife. He attempted to end his own life but instead he found himself transported to a ship orbiting the Earth. The aliens aboard explained that he could not kill himself for he was the last of a chosen line; a family line which possessed the perfect genetic imprint to receive the 'gift of power' and become a third holy man of lsht. After hearing the story of Zakraan and his family, Tom reluctantly agreed to take the power. In a painful ceremony he was endowed with powers that set him apart from other men. He was now a superman, capable of vast feats of strength, flight, telekinetic force bolts and all the rewards of being a holy man. This gave him not only great powers, but a reason to live.

Among the early critical acclaim Rich Vasseur of Jazma Online says “This comic shows us Shadowflame's origin. It is really very interesting. His costume is original and inspiring. Shadowflame shows us the true heart of a hero. There is lots of excitement within these pages. Shadowflame will light a fire under you!”

Shadowflame 1 is available through Diamond Comics, hitting store shelves in February 2007, at the suggested retail price of $3.95. The order code is:
