Allegory releases new series – True Hero
SEATTLE, June 6, 2012– Allegory is excited to introduce True Hero, a new action/comedy series developed by up-and-coming artist Rich Genesy and writer Mike Cisneros.
True Hero follows the story of Mark, a 19 year-old comic book geek who still lives at home. Though he wants nothing more than to be a superhero, the reality is that there’s no such thing. But when a mysterious girl offers him special powers, Mark rejoices. But little does he know that his best friend would get superpowers too… and he has a very different idea of how to use them.
“We’re very excited about True Hero..Rich Genesy is an incredible artist, doing all the art by hand and Mike has a wonderful ability to write real character driven stories.. this is a winner” states CEO Chad Smith of Allegory.
Mike Cisneros comments, “Rich & I have been working on this project for so long that it’s kind of surreal to see it coming to fruition. We’re just so stoked that Allegory has given us the opportunity to get this book out there!”
Mike Cisneros is a Southern Californian story-teller, having written on the Speed Racer comic book series, and as a producer of Speed Racer: The Next Generation. Mike regularly writes, records and performs musical comedy under the stage name “Dino-Mike”. True Hero is his first creator-owned comic book.
Rich Genesy is a self-taught pen and pencil illustrator hailing from central Michigan. He moved to Southern California with dreams of beaches, earthquake adventures, and zombie invasions fueling his quest to become a professional comic book artist.
True Hero is available through digital distribution with our international partner, Ave!Comics and with Graphicly. Additionally, Rich and Mike will be signing copies of Issue 1 and 2 during Comic Con International in July.
