Blackest Terror #1 is Coming this October from Moonstone's Modern Myths

Every now and then, we need to hear the tales of a superhero that remains lurking in the dark. The superhero that fights for justice, their community, their freedom, their rights. Unfortunately, this superhero may cause too much controversy for all the wrong reasons. Why?? They are the hero for many, while they are the enemy for many more! Blackest Terror may be that superhero that many have been waiting for. He has finally stood up for those that could not do it before and he is helping many more to come out and join his fight.

Blackest Terror #1 is now available to pre-order in the Diamond Previews Catalog, and it will be out at your local comic shops in October. Tucson, Arizona's very own, Eric M. Esquivel is the mastermind behind this original and it is great fun! The artwork is by Ander Sarabia. We really enjoyed the story and artwork and we will definitely be ordering our copies today! I am looking forward to seeing where the Blackest Terror will take us. Oh and one more thing, I really want to see who the Bronze Terror is!! (A character mentioned in Blackest Terror and he is from Arizona)
From the Diamond Preview Catalog's solicitation copy:
 “Moonstone Modern Myths: BLACKEST TERROR #1 (C: 0-1-0)

(W) Eric M Esquivel (A) Ander Sarabia Order Code: AUG111128
The Blackest Terror is a pioneer in what sociologists have dubbed
“the super hero subculture,” a collection of racial and social minorities who feel underserved by the mainstream legal system and have decided to take matters into their own costumed hands. How will the world react to these benevolent outlaws? Will they become celebrated symbols of humankind’s capacity for good or hated catalysts of a bloody revolution?"

Blackest Terror is the first in a series of five self-contained one-shots from Moonstone Books written by Eric M. Esquivel & drawn by Ander Sarabia which reinterpret "Golden Age", public domain characters for the modern era.

It arrives in comic book stores nationwide October 26th, 2011.

The other titles in the series are:

- “Thor: Unkillable Thunder Christ” (the adventure of a pagan pugilist)

- “Super American: The Red, White and Blue Knight” (a multiracial extraterrestrial from America's distant future)

- “Moon Girl: Princess With a Punch” (A kung fu feminist from another world)

- “Modern Myths: In The Company of Immortals” (In which our heroes trade blows & ideological critiques with their Golden Age counterparts)
