THE DABEL BROTHERS “TAKE A CHANCE” WITH C.E. MURPHY’S
NEW COMIC BOOK

What Makes a Hero? Find out this December in this new, original series

ATLANTA, GA – October 13, 2008 – Dabel Brothers Publishing is excited to announce the original comic book series Take a Chance, written by best-selling author C.E. Murphy, with art by Ardian Syaf, already known for his fantastic work on Jim Butcher’s The Dresden Files: Welcome to the Jungle.

“Take A Chance has been a years-long pet project, built on the shoulders of my insanely talented artist and colorist, Ardian Syaf and Jason Embury. We’ve been on a long road, but I was convinced that patience would bring me to the right publisher, and working with the Dabel Brothers has proved me right,” says C.E. Murphy. “They’re as excited about the comic as I am, which is saying quite a lot–finally seeing it come to fruition is just amazing.”

Five years ago, Frankie Kemp’s four-year old son was shot and killed in the crossfire of gang warfare. Desperate to do something to protect other children, Frankie became “Chance”, a masked vigilante in a world without superheroes.

However, that all changed when a genetically engineered virus escaped North Korean scientists and spread world-wide. Intended to create a super-soldier program, the virus improved on the basic human template–when it didn’t sicken or kill. Now the world is suddenly littered with super-powered beings, and Chance must rediscover her place in the changing world around her.

“C. E. Murphy and Ardian Syaf make a great team. Ardian’s work on Take A Chance is just as stunning as his art on The Dresden Files,” says Les Dabel, Vice President of Dabel Brothers Publishing, “This is a book that we believe in, and one that I think readers will really enjoy.”

C.E. Murphy’s Take A Chance Vol. 1 is a five-issue mini-series starting this December. Diamond Order code: OCT084065 F C E MURPHYS TAKE A CHANCE #1.
