So I’ll be in San Diego this weekend – I’m on the Meet The Press: Writing About Comics panel on Saturday, for those who want to see how much a short Scot can sweat in nervousness – but I couldn’t let this go without comment:
World-famous entrepreneur, adult entertainment icon and New York Times best-selling author Jenna Jameson is creating and staring in her own series of comic books, it was announced today by Virgin Comics CEO, Sharad Devarajan, at Comic-Con, the industry’s annual super-festival in San Diego. The series, titled Shadow Hunter, debuts in comic shops and online comic retailers in December… Shadow Hunter is the story of a provocative superheroine who survives a brush with death only to find herself fighting the legions of hell for her very soul. Cover art for the first issue has been created by Greg Horn, a top illustrator of comic books and video games. The story, while provocative and sexy, contains no nudity and is intended for a mainstream audience.
We’re doomed, aren’t we? Although at least this time, Greg Horn can defend any “pornface” accusations by pointing out that, this time, it’s appropriate.
