HAVERHILL, MA (June 27, 2005) - DIGITAL WEBBING PRESENTS celebrates its 25th issue in September, and everyone's invited as Jay Faerber (NOBLE CAUSES) brings his FIREBIRDS to DWP, along with some returning favorites: THE MASK OF THE GARGOYLE, and THE LAST PALADIN!
We're very excited that Jay would want his FIREBIRDS to visit DWP," said Digital Webbing's Managing Editor, Ed Dukeshire. "In the beginning when we started this series, I never could have imagined this kind of support or how many professionals would come to join us. DWP is where it's at today because of so many talented and generous creators like Jay."

Andres Ponce, and colors by Ryan Vera.
This special FIREBIRDS story stands independent from the FIREBIRDS one-shot I put out through Image Comics," said Faerber. "It's a brief look into the
furthering development of the mother/daughter bond between the Firebirds, as the two heroines have to learn to juggle their priorities and trust each
Faerber continues, "I opted to publish this story in DWP because I believe
in what Ed Dukeshire is trying to accomplish, and I respect the heck out of
him! He designed and lettered the first FIREBIRDS story, so I felt it only
made sense to publish this second story on Ed's turf."
Returning this month, after debuting in DWP #20; "THE LAST PALADIN: INTO A STRANGE NEW WORLD," written by Ian Ascher, with art by Mahmud Asrar, colors by Kieran Oats, and letters by Ed Dukeshire." THE LAST PALADIN is a mixture of classic fantasy and sci-fi any fan of
comics, new or old, can get into," said Ascher. "I've been with Digital
Webbing since its inception back in 2001. It's amazing to have been able to
see it grow from a black and white book full of short stories by unknown
creators into a full-color title with recurring characters and industry
professionals. DWP only gets stronger and stronger with each passing issue." This month finds Dr. Zack Machin and Princess Selera on the run, in search
of safe haven, only to be discovered by the dark wizard Osyrus, and his
monstrous minion. Even the Last Paladin might not be enough to save the day!
