Eye Witness Series Collected as Slipcased HC


From the press release:


Dallas, TX- This November, just in time for the holiday shopping season, Head Press Publishing will release a limited edition slipcase collection of the award-winning Eye Witness graphic novel series.  This will offer many fans of comics and graphic novels their first exposure to all four books in this highly acclaimed indy series, since publicity surrounding it has grown with each subsequent release and many fans came on board a few years after the 2004 premier of the first book in the series.

In an literary format that has been dominated by spandex clad men, scantily clad women and lots of zombies, Luedke’s time-hopping Biblical based action-adventure story truly stands out from the crowd!  Through years of research, Luedke, has effectively (in a fictional sense) filled in the gaps in the Biblical narrative from the Passion week through the Book of Acts and combined it with a compelling and nail biting modern day action-thriller.  “The storyline combines elements of Indiana Jones, a gripping New Testament story, time travel, espionage and dramatic scenes that rank among the best in American comic artistry,” stated Journalist, David Crumm, on his Readthespirit.com, website.

Luedke made the commitment to begin the Eye Witness series in 2002, as a way to share the spiritual, historical and dramatic nature of the Gospels, in a way that would draw the attention of teens and young adults comic readers…especially those who may have never read a Bible or attended church.  “I intentionally designed Eye Witness’ unique mixture of Biblical adaptation and modern day thriller to make the story of the New Testament exciting, attractive and fun for today’s readers, “states Luedke.  “My goal was treat the Book of Acts like Cecil B. DeMille treated the book of Exodus in his Ten Commandments film…by adding characterization, dramatization and connecting the dots for those not familiar with the original narrative.”

The series has generated coverage by major media from coast to coast and the praise of many religious leaders as well as comic veterans alike.  According to former writer/editor at Marvel and DC, Brian Augustyn, “Eye Witness unfolds like a contemporary action adventure film worthy of Steven Spielberg and John Woo.”

Eye Witness (Book Three): Rise of the Apostle (which was released in August 2008) was awarded a gold medal in the category of graphic novels at the 2009 National Best Book Awards, sponsored annually by USABooknews.com and was named a finalist in the FOREWORD Magazine book of the year awards.

Eye Witness (Book Two): Acts of the Spirit (released, August 2006) was honored as the best comic/graphic novel at the 2007 Hollywood Book Festival.  The book also took a silver medal at the 2007 Independent Publisher Magazine Awards, as well as being named a finalist in the FOREWORD Magazine book of the year awards.

The Eye Witness slipcase collection will be available through book and comic stores nationwide the week of November 15th (as well as most major retailer’s online stores).  There will be a limited edition of 200 sets signed and numbered by Luedke and only be available at his personal appearances, through the Head Press website and by retailers who purchase directly from Head Press Publishing.  For more information, visit: www.HeadPress.info
