Elemental Fources

Press Release For Immediate Release

Earth, Fire, Air, & Water converge in New Baby Productions’ first self-published series, Elemental Fources.

Clawson, MI, May 17, 2008: Fresh publisher New Baby Productions announces its first comic book series, Elemental Fources, for a late 2008 release. With a mix of influences from superheroes to the occult and fantasy, EF will cater to a broad spectrum of fans. As one creator commented, it’s “like Hellboy™ getting thrown in the Marvel™ universe.”

Following in the footsteps of other successful four-person teams, EF contains the adventures of Normandy, Aden, Finola, and Wilhelm, human half-breeds with powers rooted in each of the central elements of philosophy: earth, fire, air, and water.

“I was highly influenced by the Fantastic Four™, the first comic I read as a kid, and Comico Comic’s Elementals™, the series that re-introduced me to the industry as an adult,” stated series editor Eric Mullarky. “When my bid to bring the Elementals back to print failed, I produced my own super-team, the Fources. After much research, I found that there is a lot of historical background that can be touched upon when doing stories based around the four elements.”

Set in the near future, the initial story arc will incorporate aspects of doomsday prophecies surrounding the year 2012. Joined by a cast that includes members of an alchemical secret society, demons, an angel, and an ex-Templar Knight, the Fources will embark on an action-filled tale while still learning to use their powers and determine how they fit in a world on the brink of Armageddon.“EF was lucky enough to have a truly global creative team. Each member was able to contribute a unique voice to the project.”

Writer Crisman Strunk’s (Kentucky) previous credits include work on several horror anthologies. Penciller John Becaro and inker/colorist Ernest Jocson are both very well known in the Filipino art community. David Chow (China) provides colorful cover art. Letterer Jaymes Reed (North Carolina) has eight years of experience in the comics industry, and has worked on a few projects for Dynamite Entertainment. Starting with issue #3, artist J.C. Grande (El Salvador) will provide the pencils.
