PRESS RELEASE - CELEBRATE THE CHINESE NEW YEAR WITH ARCHIBALD! Archibald Aardvark returns in an all-new noir mystery this January!
29 October 2008 (Berkeley, CA) - Image Comics' Shadowline presents an all-new mature readers adventure with the greatest unknown cartoon star of yesteryear, Archibald Aardvark, as ARCHIBALD CHASES THE DRAGON! "As always, this one's definitely not for the kids," said Archibald Aardvark creator and artist Grant Bond. "Having Dara Naraghi take over the writing is perfect, as ARCHIBALD CHASES THE DRAGON puts a whole new spin on the murder behind the murder of Archibald's brother." ARCHIBALD CHASES THE DRAGON is the third Archibald one-shot illustrated by Bond, following ARCHIBALD SAVES CHRISTMAS & ARCHIBALD SAVES EASTER, and the first written by Naraghi. This time around a tip-off about a long thought solved murder brings Archibald to Little China, in search of the mysterious "Compassionate Wind of Death". However, it doesn't take long before this noir tale of greed, secrets and a deal with the devil threatens to have Archibald fall victim to the red dragon haunting his dreams. ARCHIBALD CHASES THE DRAGON (NOV082277), a 32-page two-color one-shot for $3.50, will be in stores January 7th, 2008.
