PRESS RELEASE: THE BOOK THAT LAUNCHED J.K. WOODWARD’S CAREER TO BECOME AN ORIGINAL GRAPHIC NOVEL VIA KICKSTARTER.

Los Angeles, CA (March 23, 2012) Who is Crazy Mary?  Crazy Mary is a freelancer, a cyber-enhanced bad-ass for hire, living and working the mean streets of tomorrow’s New York. What sets Mary apart from the
average hired gun are her visions.  She sees an eerie haunting world that exists over top the one we know.  This shadow world speaks to her, haunts her, and is ultimately guiding Mary toward…well, it’s best not to tell yet.

Mary is also the character that launched artist J.K. Woodward’s career. “Almost 10 years ago I contributed to the creation of a Crazy Mary short,” says Woodward. Called Trail of Tears, this Crazy Mary story found its way into the hands of Peter David, who immediately sought Woodward as an illustrator for his hit series Fallen Angel. Since that time Woodward has gone on to do sequential and cover work for Boom!, Marvel, IDW, Top Cow, and Archaia.  “Through it all,” he says, “I’ve always held out hope of coming back to Crazy Mary. I couldn’t be more thrilled Cialis to see it returning and to be a part of its creation.”

Now thanks to the Kickstarter revolution Mary is making a comeback. Author Michael Colbert is nearing the completion of his graphic novel, By Factory Smoke & Acetylene Light, which compiles all of Mary’s past adventures along with 52 pages of all new material.  If all goes according to schedule the book should hit shelves in August of this year.

The Crazy Mary Kickstarter campaign will be running until May 14. Colbert needs to raise at least $8000 to make his graphic novel a reality.  Incentives include:

* Signed copies of the book, shot glasses, and exclusive art prints.

* An exclusive Crazy Mary art book which includes work by J.K.
Woodward, Josh Finney (Titanium Rain, Catwoman), William Blankmanship
