Boundless Comics Announces “War Goddess”
Published on Friday, March 18, 2011 by

Boundless Comics announced today the upcoming June release of its second ongoing comic book series entitled WAR GODDESS, the core book in a new universe of horror/action heroines (including revamped fan-favorites such as Pandora, Hellina, and Widow).

BOUNDLESS COMICS ANNOUNCES NEW “WAR GODDESS” SERIES,

LAUNCHES WIDE-SCALE RETAILER EXCLUSIVE PROGRAM

March 18, 2011 – The publisher also announced an exciting nationwide Retailer Exclusive program with minimum buy-in requirements as low as only 150 copies.

By popular demand, the debut #0 issue re-introduces the established “bad girl” character Pandora as the titular heroine, and also revamps such fan-favorite characters as Widow and Pandora for a new generation. The story, written by talented Mike Wolfer (Lady Death, Gravel), is a completely ground-level introduction to new readers; comic book fans will not need any prior knowledge of the characters Pandora, Hellina, or Widow in order to enjoy the new series. The full-sized, 32-page launch issue comes in full color with the regular series retail price of $3.99.

Retailers will have the opportunity to attain store exclusive cover variants in two different ways. Retailers can attain a Store Name Exclusive edition for a minimum commitment of only 150 copies, and an Art Exclusive edition featuring unique cover artwork for a minimum commitment of only 350 copies.

For comic shops stocking the low minimum commitment of only 150 copies, they will receive a full-color Store Name Exclusive edition featuring their particular store name on the shared front cover illustration by Pow Rodrix (JLA, What If? Secret Invasion, Wolverine), the talented interior artist of the WAR GODDESS series. The unit price on the 150-copy Store Name Exclusive edition is $3.99.

For stores committed to stocking at least 350 units, they will receive an Art Exclusive edition featuring a 100% unique cover image. The cover image will be distinctly original and full-color. Boundless Comics will work directly with stores, giving them the opportunity to select the piece of artwork for their store. The unit price on the 350-copy Art Exclusive edition is $3.99. Retailers are encouraged to contact Keith Davidsen, the publisher’s Director of Sales, for selection information (keith@avatarpress.net).

Regarding the nationwide program, Keith Davidsen says, “I’ve talked to a lot of retailers since Boundless Comics launched last year, and there are plenty out there who’d love to have exclusives for their store. The challenge has always been quantity – there are only a small handful of stores that can move the 500 or 1,500-unit minimums that other publishers have offered. So here we are today, making the program available to pretty much anyone! The WAR GODDESS #0 Retailer Exclusive program is throwing open the doors to shops nationwide to have something truly special and unique for their shelves and their customers.”

Through Diamond’s April 2011 Previews catalog, retailers will also have the opportunity to order the traditional selection of WAR GODDESS #0 variant cover editions. The debut #0 issue will be available in regular, wraparound, the horror-themed “Gore”, and stylistic Art Nouveau editions.

Describing the new direction for the character Pandora in the WAR GODDESS series, writer Mike Wolfer says, “We pick up the story many years after Pandora accomplished her centuries-long struggle to contain the evils she set loose upon the Earth. The immortal War Goddess has retired, but I’ve concocted a totally new threat, with enemies and villains like the Earth has never seen, so it’s a whole new war that must be waged. She’d probably hate to admit it, but Pandora can’t fight this war alone.” The overwhelming threat to humanity posed in the series forces her to recruit other cult classic female fatales into her conflict.

Created by indie press icon William Christensen in 2010, Boundless Comics publishes high-quality, action-oriented comics, as exemplified by its hugely successful initial release, LADY DEATH by Brian Pulido and Mike Wolfer.
