Asylum Press Prepares for Fearless Dawn: Jurassic Jungle Boogie Nights #1


The night is always darkest before the dawn is how the saying goes. It's definitely a little brighter though when that dawn is fearless and more than capable of handling her own against anything thrown at her. Steve Mannion loves to write about such a dawn, preparing to release Fearless Dawn: Jurassic Jungle Boogie Nights #1 with Asylum Press.

“Steve Mannion’s Fearless Dawn has been working her way back into the spotlight this year," said Matt Demory. "If you have ever seen the TV show Venture Bros. on Adult Swim then you’ll feel right at home with Fearless Dawn. The book’s villains are just as quirky and over the top as the Monarch or Phantom Limb from Venture Bros. but the real focus is on our alluring fighter heroine. Mannion’s art has also been showcased in Detective Comics, Batman Black & White, and Captain America Sentinel of Liberty. In Fearless Dawn his stylish artwork lends Dawn her sex appeal and brings a lot of humor to the title.

Fearless Dawn is back and better than ever in a dinosaurrific tale of action and adventure. It's World War II and the Nazis are threatening world domination, prompting a new hero to rise to fight the Axis in Fearless Dawn. With her trusty Retro-Rocket and Sidekick Betty, there's poised to take on the evil Helga Von Krause, Fearless Dawn's arch-nemesis. Helga's cooking up a plot to invade with an army of genetically-modified dinosaur warriors that threaten to smash everything in the free world unless she is stopped.

The book hits stores in December. Full press release below.
