‘SPOOKS’ SELLS OUT AT DIAMOND, GETS STRUZAN COVER
Issue #1 of Schifrin, Hama, and Salvatore’s action/horror series gets big orders while issue #4 gets a movie poster legend

Chicago, IL. (Feb. 20, 2008) – The first issue of Devil’s Due’s new monster-packed, military action series Spooks sold out from Diamond a week after hitting comic book racks, and issue #4 added yet another huge creator to its ranks.

“It's hard getting a new idea out there into such a crowded field, and for the fans to get behind us is wonderful -- when you spend years working on something you just hope people will enjoy it, and we're absolutely delighted with the response so far,” said writer Ryan Schifrin. “It's been a labor of love from the start, as I worked with Bob Salvatore and Larry Hama to take a spark of an idea and turn it to an epic.”

Spooks’ all-star writing staff of Schifrin (“Abominable”), Hama (G.I. Joe, Wolverine), and Salvatore (DemonWars) along with artist Adam Archer was enough to propel the first issue to sell-out status. Issue #4 will add big-name artist Drew Struzan to its credits.

Struzan, who is well known for his “Star Wars” and “Indiana Jones” posters graces the cover to Spooks’ climactic ending with brand new cover showcasing his legendary talents.

“Bob [Salvatore] – with his sons Geno and Bryan – gave the supernatural elements real depth, while Larry made the military response feel real, and kick serious butt,” Schifrin stated. “Together the creative team laid the groundwork for Spooks to be huge, and there's much more to come – some of which you'll see on the website and in the collected edition. This first arc is only the beginning.”
