GearHead #1 Press Release


Arcana Studio

Press Release

2007 – The Year of the Wrench.

GEARHEAD coming in January from Arcana Studio!


November 13, 2006 (Kansas City, MO) -- Creative team Dennis Hopeless, Kevin Mellon & Ed Herrera introduce the world to GearHead, a wrench-wielding post-teenager with daddy-issues and more than a little pent-up aggression – in GearHead #1 coming in January from Arcana Studio.

“It’s a story about family, responsibility and the corruption of REAL power,” says series writer, Dennis Hopeless. “It’s also about a hot girl who beats people with a wrench and the nearly-naked bureaucrats who’d like her to stop - a little something for everyone.”

GearHead #1, solicited in November’s Previews (order code: NOV063289) is an origin story. Family secrets are revealed and a drag racer becomes a badass with the swing of a wrench.

“It’s like an action movie if Michael Bay cared about plot and characters,” jokes penciller, Kevin Mellon. “Think ‘Pearl Harbor,’ if ‘Pearl Harbor’ was good.”

Arcana’s take on the story:


By Hopeless, Mellon & Herrera

Shelby Cooper lives just outside a world of spandex politicians and electric cars - but F**K them and their world. She's a hot chick with a hotrod. She drives fast, talks trash and hurts people with a big-ass wrench. What does any of that have to do with super powers? Well...

On a mission to find her brother and in search of the destiny she never knew she had, Shelby's life is about to get interesting. Join her on a 4-issue road trip that leads from the drag strip all the way to the White House. Like her father before her, she is GearHead.

- 32-pages, full color, four-issue bi-monthly limited series -- $3.95

GEARHEAD (order code: NOV063289) is spotlighted in the November issue of Previews catalogue for release in January 2007. Ask your retailer.

Zombies With Guns

Top That.


The zombies are by no means the primary focus of our story. But when they show up, fuck if they don't steal the show.
