NEW SERIES HITS THE MARK
Image Comics and Benaroya Publishing Offer $1 Debut Issue of Marksmen

Berkeley, CA – 26 April 2011 – The battle for New San Diego will begin this July for just $1 when Image Comics and Benaroya Publishing introduce MARKSMEN! This new six-issue miniseries will feature the action-packed story of Dave Baxter, an acclaimed new writer/producer who is making his comics debut with such experienced comic book artists as Javiar Aranda (Star Trek), Garry Leach (Marvelman), and Tomm Coker (UNDYING LOVE).

MARKSMEN begins sixty years after the nation’s oil supply has finally run out and debts have been called in, resulting in a civil war that has splintered America into warring fiefdoms. New San Diego is a technocratic utopia that offers the last bastion of peace and prosperity, provided you live within its walls. Drake McCoy is its best protector. McCoy, an expert marksman, defends the city from the numerous threats in the wasteland outside the walls. But when the oil rich Lone Star state sends a powerful army to steal New San Diego’s energy technology, even Drake’s leadership and skill may not be enough to fend off the siege.

This action-packed series contrasts the classic taste of a western against the harsh backdrop of a post-apocalyptic future. With the first issue debuting just in time for San Diego Comic Con, including a SDCC exclusive variant cover, this is one comic you won’t want to miss! Watch as San Diego experiences a battle the likes of which you could never have imagined.

MARKSMEN #1 (MAY110435) is a 32 page full color action adventure comic book that will hit stores on July 20th with the low cover price of just $1!
