Red King Press Announces Release of Courage: Graphic Novel!
Red King Press, in association with writer Dino Caruso and illustrator Paul Houston, are proud to announce the publication of “Courage” an all-ages, action-packed graphic novel. “Courage” is a complete story, featuring the first adventure of the title-character and his amazing collection of friends and foes.
Years ago, the costumed crime-fighter known as Courage suffered defeat at the hands of the nefarious criminal Volatile. Unable to cope with failure, the hero retired in disgrace. Now, years later, he's back and ready to set things right.
Drawn in a fun-spirited retro style by Paul Houston with witty, playful storytelling by Dino Caruso, “Courage” is a tale of second chances, redemption and teamwork.
“A unique and energetic throwback to the days before superheroes became synonymous with dark, brooding, and nihilistic,” said Michael Moreci, writer of Hoax Hunters comic. “Caruso drives Courage through a romp of sci-fi baddies, femme fatales, and superhero mythos, all in one punch. Loads of fun,” said Moreci.
The story boasts an introduction by renowned writer Steve Englehart and afterward by Aurealis Award nominated writer Jason Franks. Additionally, the book features a pin-up gallery by a stellar collection of indie artists. The cover was beautifully illustrated by David Cutler
