GearHead #1 Press Release
2007 – The Year of the Wrench.
GEARHEAD coming in January from Arcana Studio!
# # # OFFICIAL RELEASE BEGINS # # #
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
