For Immediate Release
ZENESCOPE PUBLISHES JEFFREY KAUFMAN’S NEXT GRAPHIC NOVEL THIS SEPTEMBER
Jacob Mars would probably put a bullet in your head if you called him a “whore”, but in simple terms, that’s what he is.
Jeffrey Kaufman (Terminal Alice) proudly presents a new, controversial graphic novel entitled WHORE. Written by Kaufman, drawn by Marco Turini (Marvel’s Squadron Supreme) and colored by James Brown (IDW’s G.I. Joe series), the novel answers the question, what if James Bond had no morals and would work for anyone who could pay him? This creator-owned graphic novel will be published by Zenescope Entertainment and will be available in September.
After getting downsized from the CIA, Jacob Mars will take any job he can to pay his debts and alimony. He isn’t a bad guy by nature, but out of necessity. He has to live a life where things don’t matter, as long as he gets paid. His motto, simply stated: “Every man has his price.”
“A unique but sometimes offensive guy, Jacob Mars in Whore takes you to places you never imagined you’d go,” said creator and writer Jeffrey Kaufman “He couldn’t be a better or worse character to write for. Survival in his world is defined less by air and blood than by dollars and cents.”
“Jeff Kaufman brought all his story telling skills to the game on Whore. It’s a great read with fast moving action, lots o’ thrills and sex, and some twists and surprises. Then there’s the Kaufman humor. You’ll love Whore even as you hate him.” – Clayburn Moore (Award Winning Sculptor, Founder of CS Moore Studio Ltd)
“This book really is called Whore, but don’t let that fact keep you from picking this up, as it turns out to be a really enjoyable read… This is something you will definitely want to check out.” – Rob Wrecks, Indie Comix
WHORE, a 112-page full-color paperback, will be on sale in stores early September 2012 for $9.99 and is available to order in the July 2012 edition of Diamond Previews (JUL121329, ISBN: 978-1-937068-62-2). For more information, please visit www.bigcitycomics.com and www.facebook.com/BigCityComics.
