Big Dog Launches Shahrazad #1 In November


Comic convention goers of the last year or two can't fail to have noticed the increasing profile of publisher Big Dog Ink. It seems to be aiming to first, match the likes of Aspen and Zenescope, and grow from there towards Dynamite. So we get a number of comics, with a touch of cheesecake but not too much. An Oz comic. And a few titles that seem slightly familiar.

Also, most of the books are written by its president Tom Hutchison, with another by Wayne Gardiner, another by Bleeding Cool contributor Dirk Manning and a new book launching, written by Tom's wife and Big Dog co-owner, Kim Hutchison.

After running #0 Prologues through the summer, in November Big Dog launches Shahrazad #1, with a J Scott Campbell variant cover. See, that's the way you do it.

Based on the fictional life of the woman who told the stories of the 1,001 Arabian Nights to keep herself alive. But how did she come by these stories in the first place?

A new heroine rises from the legends of the ancient world. Shahrazad was known for her amazing stories of 1001 Arabian Nights, but now it is time to tell her story! She lives a life unlike anything you could imagine. An existence that spans generations as well as genres. In this new ongoing series, Shahrazad stares into the storms on the horizon with determination, but the forces of nature, and of history, are not to be taken lightly!
