Parody Press Comics has announced the upcoming release of Hewoes #1, a comic book satire of NBC's superhero drama Heroes. The title is written and illustrated by Bill Maus and will ship with two different covers, a Good Hewoes cover and a Bad Hewoes cover.
"When cheerleader Klair Bendit discovers her weird flexibility powers playing Twister and her dad's secret project involving strangers from around the world, the fun begins," Editor-in-Chief, Don Chin told SFcrowsnest. "Bill Maus has a keen eye at poking fun at pop culture, and his art style on this book is much in the vein of the classic Mad Magazine satires, complete with grey art tones and square word balloons."
"In Hewoes, readers will be introduced to the enigmatic Pastrami brothers, Internet Weathergirl Sniki Sanders, constipated Japanese office worker Hewoe, and Mohinder Night Shalaman, who is trying to make sense of the whole thing while a berserk hairdresser named Styler is on the rampage!" added Maus, from his studio in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Hewoes #1 will be available in comic book stores in July 2007 with a cover price of $2.99 US. The format will be 24 pages, black and white interiors, with wrap-around full color covers. The two variant covers will ship in 50/50 increments. A sneak-preview of the comic will be available online at http://www.parodypresscomics.com
