Press Release: Indie Comics Magazine Editor Gary Scott Beatty recently announced New York state based writer, publisher and inker Anthony Cacioppo and writer/illustrator Chuck Foulds will contribute an eight page story to the new comic book, scheduled for preorder in Diamond Comic Distributors’ January 2011 Previews catalog and available only through Previews. The done-in-one tale features Cacioppo and Fould’s character Matt Burton, Agent Zero.
In 1997 Anthony Cacioppo’s Kaso Comics made its debut at New York City comic book conventions with the release of The Indestructible Man, the character made famous on the silver screen by Lon Chaney Jr. “The books Anthony has published through Kaso Comics over the years have been consistently exceptional,” said Beatty. “We’re happy to have him in Indie Comics Magazine.”
Kaso has since released archaeological adventure The Risen and the Dead, suspense tale Twisted, the Action Anatomy artist sourcebook, posters, CDs, apparel and even Strathmore comic book layout pages and storyboard templates. Kaso art books include Heroic Fantasy: Paintings by Marcus Boas and the artist collection Pulp SF Pinups.
Matt Burton-Agent Zero takes the Kaso universe to the world of espionage.
Indie Comics Magazine is 64 pages of the best story and art from today’s independent comic book creators. Each issue of the new Indie Comics Magazine will feature eight full stories from eight different independent comic book creators, said Beatty. Short biographies and contact information are included with the stories so readers can easily seek out more of the creators’ work. Kaso products can be purchased at KasoComics.com.
