RANDOMVEUS DELIVERS INSANITY WITH EVERY PARCEL!
UDON to Launch â€œUDON Presentsâ€ Graphic Novel Line with RandomVeus Vol.1
Toronto, ON â€“ May 10, 2011 â€“ All-out action meets off-the-wall wackiness inÂ RANDOMVEUS VOl.1! Springing from the mind of artistÂ Jeffrey â€˜Chambaâ€™ Cruz, this original graphic novel adventure features the tripped-out tales of an interdimensional courier company. The book will be the launch title for UDON Entertainmentâ€™s new â€˜UDON Presentsâ€™ graphic novel line.
Created by Jeffrey â€˜Chambaâ€™ Cruz and co-writer Leonard Bermingham, RandomVeus stars bouffant-sporting heroÂ Raimundo and the team ofÂ One-Dimensional Couriers as they deliver mysterious packages to every corner of the wild world known as the RandomVeus! Â Octopus ninjas, jazz-playing demons, buxom lady-pirates, cyborg gorillas, samurai mushrooms, and one giant furry squid monster are all on tap in this zaniest of zany adventures!
RandomVeus Vol.1 (MAY111239) is the first title in UDONâ€™s new â€˜UDON Presentsâ€™ line, a series of original graphic novels presented in oversized (8.25â€x11.25â€) and hardcover format. â€œWe want to give our artistsâ€™ stories the best presentation possible right out the gate, so our focus is shifting to this deluxe format for our releases, dropping the monthly â€˜floppyâ€™ comic entirely,â€ says UDON managing editor Matt Moylan. â€œWhile comic book sales are down all over the industry, UDON continues to do very well with our trade paperbacks and art books. Weâ€™re taking the best of both by producing full length graphic novels at the same oversized dimensions that readers of our art books and â€˜Ultimate Editionâ€™ collections have come to enjoy.â€
Beyond RandomVeus, UDON has several other original graphic novels currently in production, and also plans to present its future video game-based comic stories in the same oversized format. RandomVeus Vol.1 goes on sale July 2011.
