******PRESS RELEASE****** August-2017

AUGUST, 2017

Treble Comics, a new independent comic book publisher based in New York City, has released their new trade paperback edition of A Song of Heroes this month.  Written and created by Patrick Ireland the TPB has line art by Jazyl Homavasir, the creator of India’s first manga The Beast Legion, and main colors by Santosh Pillewar. The trio have spent the last two years preparing this book for publication and it has finally arrived after completing a successful Kickstarter campaign last year. 

A Song of Heroes is a Sci-Fantasy comic book that started life as a web comic and then moved into the hard copy format.  If you loved He-man and the Masters of the Universe, Dungeons and Dragons, and Thundercats growing up then this may be the book for you. In fact, A Song of Heroes has been dubbed an unofficial spin-off of properties such as these.  While not actually being linked to them its characters and stories are meant to emulate them and be able to seamlessly fit into those worlds as a sort of side story or meanwhile on another planet adventure.

Volume 1 of A Song of Heroes is entitled “The Amber Prison” and contains a 7-page mini comic detailing Thug-bug’s origin.  This mini comic has line art by Jazyl Homavasir and colors by Vivek Nag.  The mini comic is followed by 3 full sized issues introducing us to the story’s main villain, The Red Wizard who is currently employing Dipteraki workers to excavate a nearby cave.  While we discover what he is looking for a flashback story serves as an origin story for his minion Spy-fly. Following the story content is over 15 pages of bonus material including creator and character bios, concept art, and a sneak peek at what is to come.  All together this trade has been touched by many professional artists from the he-man.org fan community including Patrick Ireland (Treble Comics), Jazyl Homavasir (The Beast Legion), Santosh Pillewar (Sadashiv Creatives), Vivek Nag (Creative Connect), Cody Constable, Leanne Hannah (My Little Ponies, Transformers), Eric Marshall (He-man: Newspaper Comic Strips HC), Andrew Cramer (MVC’s Masters of the Universe,  The Lil Five), Dheeraj Verma (Lady Death, Transformers), Bojan Andjelkovic and Rey Arzeno (RageGear Studios).

Kickstarter a success!

With all the issues with the site after it was hacked I realize I never made a post HERE about how the kickstarter went.  It was a success and we were funded.  We hit our goal and just a bit more with a total of $3037.oo!  What this means is our comic can go to print and be sold in stores and conventions.  Depending on the level you contributed at during the kickstarter you will also be mailed copies.  We are very excited to be taking this next step with all of you and a huge thanks to all who supported us!

If you missed our kickstarter and would still like to donate to help keep our comic alive you can do so at our GOFUNDME site.  Here is the link to that:

2-17-2015 Issue 1 Page 6

In today’s page Thug-bug moves to discipline the worker that spoke up about the curse in our last page but the Red Wizard stops him and takes matters into his own hands.  While he disciplines the worker he explains to Thug-bug the history of the cave.

2-10-2015 Issue 1 Page 5

In today’s page the Red Wizard explains to Thug-bug that this cave used to house a great fly-men kingdom but there was some catastrophe and it was buried.  One of the fly-men workers takes this as an opportunity to plead to the Red Wizard to let them stop and leave the cave.

1-13-2015 – Page 1 of Issue 1!

This page both wraps up our prologue and also begins the first chapter in “A Song of Heroes”.  In print form this would be first page of Issue 1 while the pages before it would have been in Issue 0 the preview issue.   In this page we see the Thug-bug has reached the cave and is there to lead a special mission for his “father” the Red Wizard.  We see him threatening the fly people workers that are mining the cave for him.

1-6-2015 – Page 5

Its a New Year and a new Tuesday! In today’s page we discover that the Red Wizard used his powers to magically enhance Thug-bug with the strength of other creatures.  He also took Thug-bug in giving him a home and took care of his egg-pod until Thug-bug was born.

As always we’d love to hear what you think of the comic so far in the comments below or on our facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/asongofheroes

12/30/2014 – Page 4!

In this page the Red Wizard has found Thug-Bugs egg pod.  Using his magic he protects the pod from the blast when the ship explodes.  He then begins to use his magic to make Thug-Bug stronger.

We hope you are enjoying the comic so far.  Please feel free to leave comments here by clicking the little black word bubble at the top right of this blog entry.  Or head over to our facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/asongofheroes

Page 3!

Since tomorrow is a holiday we decided to present the next page a day early!

In this page we see more of  Thug-bug’s flashback.  In it the Red Wizard is entering the wreckage of the ship.  Thug-bug narrates what he has been told by the Red Wizard, that there are no survivors.  But we see what really happened as the Red Wizard kills the surviving pilot so that he can keep the ships contents for himself.

We hope you are enjoying the comic.   Feel free to leave a comment below or visit our facebook and do so at http://www.asongofheroes.com
