Inks Distribution Deal for Heske Horror’s 2012: FINAL PRAYER
Global comic creators, horror writers and book authors
contribute to "End Times" anthology.
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 16, 2009 – Zaldiva, Inc., A Florida Corporation (OTCBB: ZLDV – News), (Xetra/Frankfurt Exchange: UZ8) and a leader in Pop Culture
collectibles, comic books, memorabilia and online auctions headquartered in
Fort Lauderdale, Florida today announced they have signed a distribution
agreement with Heske Horror, an indie comic creator, to sell its much
anticipated "end times" anthology 2012: FINAL PRAYER. This deal reflects
Zaldiva’s philosophy of identifying emerging indie comic creators in order to
develop strong business relationships and gain a foothold to potential solid
investment opportunities for blockbuster titles to be developed beyond print,
including electronic, phone, web, games, film or a combination of these.
"With an award-winning indie horror anthology
(BONE CHILLER) under its belt and a few titles optioned for film, R.M. Heske at
Heske Horror was a creator we wanted to offer to customers – both in our store
and online," says Nicole Leigh, President at Zaldiva, Inc. "With its latest
offering, 2012: FINAL PRAYER, we think Heske Horror has hit another homerun."
a description for the 154-page book:
"What will go down on 12/21/12?
Extinction … Ecstasy … Or another Y2K non-event? Comic Creators from around
the world share their creative interpretations! From the award-winning
publisher of BONE CHILLER, comes an "End Times" anthology that is truly a
global event. 2012: FINAL PRAYER features graphic tales from indie comic
creators from the US, UK, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Finland, Ireland, Italy,
Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Scotland and South Africa."
The book will be available to order from Zaldiva on November 13, 2009
(coincidentally, Friday the 13th and the same release date as Sony’s
mega-disaster epic 2012). Zaldiva
will make available for sale a limited quantity of the UK variant cover by
Artist Paul Cartwright (also signed by Heske on the inside). Despite the dreary
outlook for 2012, early reviews of "Final Prayer" are extremely promising:
"Say your final prayers because 2012 is coming! This book is chock full of
terror, chills and thrills that will leave you breathlessly asking: What will
happen on December 21, 2012? A roller-coaster ride of an anthology!"
– Marie D. Jones, Best-Selling
"2013: The End of Days
or a New Beginning?"
"A dandy concept for graphic fiction that remains true
to James Warren’s independent spirit, with illustrated stories a bit edgier
than the mainstream. I’d much rather re-read this book a third time than watch
Roland Emmerich’s movie even once."
-Rod Lott, Bookgasm.com
"This is a great collection of original stories by some
amazing writers and artists. You know I say ‘give me some monsters and I will
tell you how funny they are,’ but if you make me think about the world ending,
now you’ve got me scared!"
-"Decapitated Dan" Royer,
From The Tomb magazine
"Is taking a wait and see attitude with 2012 the smart
thing to do? In a global cataclysm, those who’ve waited to cross bridges
until they come to them, will only
find panicked masses, queuing up behind smoldering cinders.
If you can dare to think outside the box for your own survival, this book is a
good starting point."
– Marshall Masters,
"Planet X Forecast and
2012 Survival Guide"
"The 2012 buzz has really begun to take hold," says Zaldiva’s Ms. Leigh.
"While there are books ‘out there’ about the topic, this anthology collection
is truly unique with its breadth of creative interpretations from diverse
Jay Katz, owner of InvestComics.com (a 2009 nominee for the Project
Fanboy Awards "Best Comic Book Website")
sees investment potential in this latest Heske Horror offering. "This anthology
showcases a vast array of indie talents – plus a few potential breakout
newcomers and some graphic tales that could be parlayed into film or books. Add
in the UK
variant cover by brilliant cover artist Paul Cartwright (shown here) and you
have an investment bet that’s a Trifecta. Definitely worth buying a few copies to
put away – and pray they survive 2012!"
