Toronto, Canada (PRnine - August 12, 2008) - Building off the momentum from the 2008 Paradise Toronto Comicon, Canada-based comic book publisher Crystal Fractal Comics announced that it has signed Howard Wong, previously of the acclaimed Image Shadowline series After the Cape, to script the first four issue story arc of its upcoming title Redorik. The series is planned for solicitation in the beginning of 2009.
“We are extremely excited to have Howard on board,” says Derrek Lennox, founder and Editor-in-Chief of Crystal Fractal Comics, “We believe that his unique look at the jaded hero will be the perfect launching point for Redorik.”
Redorik focuses on Justin Henderson, a high school student who can telepathically read the thoughts and emotions of others and teleport to distant locations through a pocket universe. Unlike his peers, who fantasize about having supernatural powers, Justin must learn to come to terms with his new found abilities, in addition to dealing with the death of a friend and trying to determine which of the voices he hears are those of others, and which are his own subconscious. He is unaware of the fact that he is a descendant of Nathanael de Velasquez, a powerful mage whose alias Doctor Twilight is the central character in another eponymous Crystal Fractal title.
In addition to Redorik and Doctor Twilight, Crystal Fractal Comics is planning on releasing four other titles in the coming months: Project Epsilon London Town, Magus Rex, Entropy and Velvet Angel. Like Redorik and Doctor Twilight, all of these titles focus on The Core and The Nine, the key players of the fictional Crystal Fractal Universe.
Crystal Fractal Comics is an up and coming comic book publisher and character licensing company seeking to diversify the industry through the dynamic storylines and characters of its titles. Founded by Derrek S. Lennox, the company aims to become one of the top ten firms in its industry through its online and print comics, toys, and other licensed products. Crystal Fractal Comics is currently headquartered in Toronto, Canada.
