Expanding their partnerships with proven digital comics distributors to meet the growing demand for more digital content, Archaia and Roddenberry Productions announced that the “digi-bution” of all five issues of last fall’s critically acclaimed, science fiction miniseries Days Missing is now exclusively on iVerse Comics’ free application. Issue #1, written by Phil Hester (Firebreather, The Darkness, Green Arrow) and drawn by Frazer Irving (Batman and Robin, Seven Soldiers of Victory), is currently available for free on the site and issues #2-5 will be available for $1.99 in the coming weeks.

Days Missing tells the stories of a mysterious being known as “The Steward.” His ability to literally “fold” days of time has allowed him to secretly remove critical days from our shared history that have forever changed the course of mankind…or so he thinks. In these missing days, The Steward battles Frankenstein, the Spanish conquistadors and artificial life forms, among other history-shaping forces.

Days Missing digital issues #2-5 will each be available for $1.99 and will roll out weekly starting Jan. 27. The schedule is as follows:

Days Missing #2 – Jan. 27
Days Missing #3 – Feb. 3
Days Missing #4 – Feb. 10
Days Missing #5 – Feb. 17

“Archaia is committed to reaching the mass audience with our sophisticated content in multiple formats,” said PJ Bickett, President of Archaia. “With digi-bution, we are able to reach an audience 10 times larger. Now throw in the fact that it is Days Missing, co-developed with Roddenberry Productions, and you have an instant winner!”

“Roddenberry has always been a name associated with technology and innovation. We are thrilled to continue this journey with Archaia and offer fans the opportunity to consume this extraordinary story on a unique digital platform,” said Roddenberry’s Head of Development and Days Missing Creator Trevor Roth.

“Archaia is the perfect kind of publishing partner for iVerse,” said iVerse Media CEO Michael Murphey. “Archaia has a rich and diverse catalog with some amazing properties like Days Missing…which we’re very excited to release on the iPhone.”

The digi-bution of Days Missing will ramp up to the debut of the Days Missing deluxe hardcover ($19.95, 160 pages, ISBN 1-932386-84-X), which will feature a host of extras and back-matter material, including a foreword by the legendary Warren Ellis. It is scheduled to be on sale in comic shops on Feb. 24 and in bookstores on March 2.

Archaia’s digital strategy will continue with the launch of an Archaia Store app at the end of February, powered by iVerse Media. The store will contain a complete list of Archaia’s archived products as well as exclusive digital content. More information to follow soon.

Comic News: New FROM THE ASHES Graphic Novel by Bob Fingerman - IDW Publishing

FROM THE ASHES: New Graphic Novel by Bob Fingerman
is a "Speculative Memoir"

FROM THE ASHES creator Bob Fingerman and real-life wife Michele against the radioactive elements in post-apocalyptic New York City

"Fingerman is a brilliant satirist, artist and mind. From the Ashes made me laugh out loud. Awesome." - Trey Parker (South Park)

IDW Publishing is proud to announce that Bob Fingerman's From the Ashes, a graphic novel collecting the renowned series, will debut on February 10, 2010. A "speculative memoir," From the Ashes pits Fingerman and his real-life wife, Michele, against the radioactive elements in a post-apocalyptic New York City, positing an alternate timeline that starts in the lead up to the 2008 presidential election.

"The problem with most memoirs is there just aren't enough mutants and zombies in them for my liking," said Fingerman, and he rectifies that problem in spades in this gorgeously drawn, sharply written satire.

"From the Ashes is my speculative memoir of 'what might yet be' (well, not really). It's an open love letter to my wife -- but not a gummy, icky, Nicholas Sparksy Harlequin Romance kind of thing," wrote Fingerman in a recent HUFFINGTON POST piece. "I don't want to leak spoilers, but readers should take special pleasure in the messianic depiction of a scary TV pundit, far-right religious whackos, celeb corpses, tinges of Oz (as in The Wizard of as well as the HBO series). With nearly six billion dead, there's plenty of room to share my nuclear holocaust."

Additionally, From the Ashes also offers a refreshing twist on how both women and marriage are usually portrayed in comics. Fingerman, the critically acclaimed writer/artist of Beg The Question, Recess Pieces, Connective Tissue, and the well-received novel Bottomfeeder, depicts himself and his wife as equals and best friends. Michele is as adept at kicking zombie ass as she was at wielding her blackberry in her pre-apocalypse career, and Fingerman's love for her (and for cartooning) radiates from every page.

From the Ashes boasts an introduction by comedian Marc Maron (of the popular podcast WTF) as well as over 25 pages of additional material not in the original issues.

From the Ashes ($19.99, 176 pages) will be available in stores on February 10, 2010. ISBN 978-1600106002.
