FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
E-MAN RETURNS TO COMICS
Haverhill, MA, March 15, 2006 -- E-Man, the energy being from outer space who makes his home on earth as a super-hero, returns to comics this September from Digital Webbing Press. Created by Nicola Cuti and Joe Staton for Charlton Comics in 1973, E-Man has always been a fan favorite, marked by equal amounts of action, mystery and humor.
E-Man enjoyed a 10 issue run with Charlton followed by 25 issues from First Comics in the 80's. Digital Webbing will release a one-shot E-Man this fall by series creators Cuti and Staton.
E-Man will be joined by his girlfriend, Nova Kane, who developed energy powers herself early in the initial Charlton series. The one-shot will also feature E-Man’s arch-enemy, The Brain from Sirius.
We’re pleased to bring E-Man back in all-new adventures. He’s always been a favorite character of mine,” said Ed Dukeshire, publisher of Digital Webbing Press. “And to have the original creators, Nick Cuti and Joe Staton, doing the honors is a real treat.”
In addition to E-Man, Cuti has written “Captain Cosmos, The Last Starveyer;” “Moonie, Moonchild the Starbabe;” and “Michael Mauser, Private Eye.”
Staton, an Inkpot and Eisner Award winner, has drawn Batman, Green Lantern, Plastic Man and, currently, Scooby-Doo. He served as Art Director at First Comics.
