"You Can Take It with You"
*Eric Hoffman led a life of privilege. As the only son of a multi-billionaire weapons contractor, the sixteen year-old had the best of everything - education, travel, computers, toys. But it's true what they say: "money can't buy happiness." And what Eric really wanted more then anything in the world was a better relationship with his father, Raifer Hoffman.
But after the death of his mother four years ago, his father grew distant and let his work consume him. So when word reached him that Raifer had passed away under mysterious circumstances, Eric had a mix of emotions - anger, regret, sadness, ambivalence. But nothing could have prepared him for what happened next. *Source: Inside cover
*ABYSS #1, the premiere issue of the pre-acclaimed new series by well-known humorist Kevin Rubio and brand-new publisher Red 5 Comics, has undergone a cover change just days before its launch date of October 17, 2007.
In a series that kills off its title character before the first issue is released, readers should expect the unexpected from ABYSS. The comedy issue that parodies many of the conventions of costumed hero comics was originally solicited and promoted with a cover featuring the tattered cape of hated super-villain, ABYSS, on his deathbed, with helpless figures standing in the street shadows.
Instead, the issue will debut on-shelves next week with a cover by series artist Lucas Maragnon. It features Eric Hoffman, who has unwittingly found himself wearing the ABYSS costume and unsuccessfully commanding the super-robot, REDS. *Source: red5comics.com
