from the official press release . . . . . . . . . .
Pro Se Productions, an innovative Genre Publisher, turned its attention to younger readers, bringing in fans under the age of eighteen, with the creation of their YOUNGPULP! imprint in 2013. The first series to debut in that line, COMPANION DRAGONS TALES, now debuts its third volume of exciting action packed tales. COPPER’S CHOICE by Nancy A. Hansen is now available in digital and print formats. “The dragons are back!” exclaims Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions. “COMPANION DRAGONS TALES VOLUME THREE: COPPER’S CHOICE introduces readers to yet another denizen of the world Nancy Hansen and other authors have conjured up to amaze and wow us. And this one, moreso than the previous volumes, not only deals with whimsical and dangerous adventure, but also mirrors decisions that I think we all have to make, young or old, in our lives in a way that both teaches and excites. Nancy’s writing style pulls a reader in and doesn’t let go!” When Nigel Gillette, renowned action/adventure author and wizard-at-large, wins a small dragon familiar in a magical game of chance, he is initially excited. Copper Dragon however, is not so thrilled. She has a shameful and abusive past, where she was trained harshly and used for illegal activities. Copper has serious trust issues, and so she refuses to believe that any human can be as friendly and generous as Nigel seems. She decides to strike out on her own, but quickly finds that the world is a cold and cruel place when you are only a small dragon who has always lived as a tame creature. So Copper has to make a choice. Should she return to the life of crime that she knows so well, or can she learn to trust this new human companion, who seems to have her best interests at heart? From the premiere chocolate producing world of Bulgosia to the famed magical resort island of Atlantis, Copper Dragon goes on a journey of self-discovery, meeting other fantastic creatures and getting into all sorts of difficult and sometimes dangerous situations. Along the way, she will learn not only to trust her own instincts, but to use those skills she has honed to her best advantage, in hopes of earning the life she deserves.

Wrightson’s name was synonymous with the best the horror comics genre had to offer and he often spoke of the lasting influence EC comics titles such as the original TALES FROM THE CRYPT and VAULT OF HORROR had on his work.So, it seems only appropriate that two of Wrightson’s stories are included in Super Genius’ new revival of the TALES FROM THE CRYPT series.Issue #2 (in comic shops this Wednesday) features two “lost classics” from Wrightson, “Stake Out” and “Feed It!”, both appearing in color for the first time. The two stories had originally appeared in black and white in other publications but when CRYPT editor Jim Salicrup rem…
It was a cold night, but it didn’t stop the faithful from spending some time on the main drag in Oxford PA for the monthly First Friday celebration. This month, the theme was Super-Heroes and employees (and sometimes customers) at several establishments went along with the theme and dressed appropriately. (We had our Batman tee shirt underneath our sweater but spared the innocent, only flashing it to friends.) It was the perfect theme for the recently opened MAROON HORNET COMICS shop at 45 South Third Street in Oxford. Owner Randy Grace employed the mercenary-for-money Deadpool as a store greeter, and local writer Greg Cox was in attendance, signing his new book. The store is fully stocked now, and has an impressive assortment of comics, games, posters, and related toys and accessories. Randy and Lori Grace are very friendly and happy to be able to provide a comics outlet in Oxford for local pop culture fans.Greg Cox is a best-selling author, who’s earned a deserved rep…
