Here at Robot’s Pajamas we like to point out when our friends are up to something geeky. Well, our pal Justin Aclin, formerly of ToyFare magazine, has had a few comics coming out over the past couple of years. This time he’s got a comic coming from Darkhorse called S.H.O.O.T. First. It’s going to be a creative owned original venture that promises lots of action. Sounds groovy. I wish Justin and his partner Daniel Selma the best of luck.
The Press Release:
Milwaukie, OR, JULY 3 – Justin Aclin (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Twisted ToyFare Theatre) and Nicolas Daniel Selma (Tomb Raider: The Beginning) take aim at the supernatural in S.H.O.O.T. First, an all-new big-action, big-ideas creator-owned mini-series from Dark Horse Comics!
The Secular Humanist Occult Obliteration Taskforce uses the power of their own disbelief (as filtered through sci-fi weaponry) to protect humanity from supernatural creatures that seek to do us harm… but for S.H.O.O.T., that means demons, angels and everything in between. Original, irreverent and sure-to-be controversial – S.H.O.O.T. First promises sci-fi action in the Dark Horse tradition, with a bold new twist!
“S.H.O.O.T. First is the most personal story and the most epic story I’ve ever written. It’s about how we deal with the loss of faith, plus it’s got crazy sci-fi action and a robot arm-wrestling a demon,” says writer Justin Aclin.
“If you are into angels and demons, weird looking creatures or just big guns, S.H.O.O.T First will totally blow your heads off,” adds artist Nicolas Selma.
“I’m so excited by the tremendous work that Nicolas Selma is doing on these issues, and I couldn’t be more proud to be publishing my first creator-owned miniseries through Dark Horse Comics, which has been where comics’ finest creators bring their greatest creations for decades,” adds Aclin.
“It was incredible for me to cooperate with Justin on this great project,” says Selma. “My childhood dreams are coming true!”
Be sure to check out the exclusive first look of S.H.O.O.T. First and interview with Justin Aclin on The New York Post’s Parallel Worlds.
