Shahrazad Week, Grand Finale
Every day, this past week, we have been revealing cover by cover by cover, for this new amazing, Big Dog Ink series, to debut in August 2013.
Synopsis: You’ve heard of the 1001 Arabian Knights, the tales told by the Arabian Queen to pique her Sultan husband’s interest and spare her life night after night. But the most important story is still left to be told, that of Shahrazad herself. What happens when our brave heroine has experienced so much, told and lived so many tales? Will they remain unique and separate memories, or will they mesh into something beyond belief? Fantasies and realities meet with an incredible result in this truly epic exercise in creativity in a comic book!
Big Dog Ink is out to prove that when it comes to a comic book, fans can indeed have it all. They have put together a top notch art team to compliment the rich, inventive and unique story of the many lives of our Queen of Storytellers. Mike Krome, Nei Ruffino and J. Scott Campbell, all amazing artists normally reserved for the variant or exclusive market, will grace retail interior pages and covers every month. And if that weren’t enough, the exclusives offered for various Big Dog Ink convention appearances will be second to none!
Join us on an amazing adventure starting this August as Big Dog Ink takes you beyond where any other comic book has ever taken you, with Shahrazad!
