"World of Quest" storms comic shops next week
September 20, 2006 – Komikwerks, LLC announced today that the much-anticipated graphic novel "The World of Quest" is set to arrive in comics shops on Wednesday, September 27th.
Created by Jason Kruse, "The World of Quest" is a graphic novel full of adventure, humor and excitement. In the land of Odyssia, former hero Quest unwillingly becomes the bodyguard to Prince Nestor a young smart-alec who knows the whereabouts of a mystic dagger that is the key to ultimate power. Together, they'll face creatures, bounty hunters and other evils vying for the weapon. In the meantime, they'll have to deal with each other!
"I am elated about 'Quest' hitting stores", says Komikwerks co-founder Patrick Coyle, "I have literally been waiting three years for this, since Jason pitched Quest to Shannon and me at the San Diego Comic Con. 'Quest' is the type of comic we started Komikwerks to publish; it's fun, fit for readers of all ages, and full of action, humor and mucus. It's got it all!"
Komikwerks co-founder Shannon Eric Denton echoed the sentiment. "The World of Quest" is the kind of project people are always saying there needs to be more of; funny, adventurous entertainment that appeals to readers of all ages. I couldn't be prouder of helping get this book out there."
The graphic novel has been called "'Conan the Barbarian' by way of 'Calvin and Hobbes'," by Eisner award-winning humor writer Keith Giffen who adds, "Do the comic book market a favor and support this book."
An exclusive preview-edition of the book met with extraordinary success at this year's Comic-Con, selling out completely midway through the convention.
"It's just so great to finally see the book on the stands after so many years in development," said Kruse. "The World of Quest" is Kruse's first graphic novel.
