Fly: The Fall Coming this October

Zenescope Entertainment has announced plans to release a new chapter in the critically acclaimed FLY comic book series.  The sequel is entitled FLY “The Fall” and is scheduled for an October release date.   Written by creator Raven Gregory (The Waking, Wonderland), the series includes cover art for issue #1 by David Mack, Ale Garza and Darick Robertson.  Interior artwork will be handled by Robert Gill (Alice in Wonderland). Upon release in 2011, the original Fly mini-series was touted as one of the best comics of 2011 by Wizard World, Pop Culture Addict, Comic Buzz, Talking Comics and Geekadelpia.  The backstory behind the creation of the series was also showcased in a poignant USA Today article.

Fly: The Fall continues soon after the life-shattering events of the last volume.  Following the death if his ex-girlfriend, Eddie is now a broken man set on a path of self-destruction from which he may not return.  Meanwhile Francis sets his game-plan in motion to destroy the man who killed is father.  Set in a world where the super-heroes aren’t really heroes at all… How far would you go to Fly? 

“I can’t tell you how anxious I’ve been to return to this world,” shares writer Raven Gregory. “There are few books I write that I can pour myself into like this.  All the pain and personal struggles make this story the perfect outlet to express how addiction is an ongoing battle, even when one’s clean.”

“What I love about this story is how dark and grounded it is. Ultimately it’s a very character-driven drama which happens to include lots of great action and a badass vengeance plot.” says Zenescope’s EIC Ralph Tedesco “It’s such a personal story for Raven which parallels his own battle with addiction and I think that’s why so many people connect to the series and why it’s been so well received by both fans and critics.”

FLY: The Fall #1 hits shelves in October and is available for order in this month’s Diamond Previews.  Visit Zenescope’s blog at blog.zenescope.com and Facebook page www.facebook.com/Zenescope for more information on Fly.

It is unseasonably warm outside, which was the perfect excuse for us to go out and play some basketball. I am nearly the worst player on earth, but it was fun  to be outside.
