Champions #65 is at the printer. This is a special issue featuring two classic adventures of PSYCHE THE OCCULT DETECTIVE. "The Ghost of Chance" is by Terrance Griep, David Gross, and Terry Pallot. "Mermaid of the Potomac" is by Steve Perrin and Chris Marrinan, and features special guest appearances by the Huntsman and Miranda the Mermaid. The Miranda story, in particular, ties in with a couple of upcoming storylines that will appear in Liberty Girl and Sensational G-Girl. Enjoy!

The final piece of the puzzle has arrived. We now have everything we needed to put together the "missing" volume of Flare's adventures, collected from her appearances in various issues of Champions, Flare, Flare Adventures, Flare First Edition, and Flare Annual, and adorned with a wonderful Paul Abrams cover. These are the tales that hearken back to the origin of Flare, and bridge the gap between the final issue of her original series, and the beginning of her current series. It will be at least a couple of months until the print version of this 152-page volume is available, but we have put together a digital version you can downoload from the PDF store right here on the Heroic Publishing website.

We were saddened to learn yesterday evening that Albert Deschesne had passed away. Albert had been a mainstay of Heroic Publishing almost since the inception of the company, first with his lettering work and a bit of inking. More recently he'd expanded his repertoire to include some wonderful coloring. The final color work Albert did for us will appear in Murclelaga She-Bat #16, and eventually on the cover of Captain Thunder #13. Albert was not only a valued colleague, but a true friend. He will be missed.

The trade paperbacks are here! We have two new collections of classic tales of FLARE and the LEAGUE OF CHAMPIONS. The League trade features the entire six-part "War Against Olympus" storyline that introduced the gods of Olympus into the Heroic multiverse. The Flare trade features the entire run of her "Adventures in Olympus" sequence, the set of stories that introduced the night-goddess Nyx. They're beautiful books, with covers by Chris Marrinan and Paul Abrams. If you haven't yet read these stories, grab these trade paperbacks now. They serve as a necessary prologue to our upcoming multi-part "Challenge of the Gods" storyline.

SURPRISE! The eighth issue of ICICLE will be coming to you even sooner than we'd been expecting. We've had the Icicle story itself for quite a while. What we've been missing is the eight page backup feature that would have starred the irrepressible SKATER. But lo! and behold, we've just received the finished artwork for the eight page FANTASTIC GIRL adventure that had originally been scheduled for Heroic Spotlight #27. So . . . why wait? We shuffled things around a bit. The Skater story's been moved to Icicle #9, we'll put something else in that issue of Heroic Spotlight, and ICICLE fans will get their sneaky little sneak thief just as soon as we get copies back from the printer.

COMING THIS SUMMER! Ulderico Fioretti is hard at work on a brand-new project featuring none other than JAY-NA THE JUNGLE QUEEN. When she first appeared in League of Champions #15, did you suspect that there was more to Jay-Na than met the eye? Well, you were right. The goddess-spirit of the Jungle Queen is as ancient as the world itself. Now, for the first time, learn the secrets of the origin of Jay-Na in the brilliant two-part graphic novel, Numbelan. The release date hasn't yet been set, but we're expecting Book One to be available in late summer or early autumn. As we get more information, watch for news about this fantastic project here on the Heroic Publishing website.
