One of the year’s most ironic entertainment partnerships has porn star and adult entertainment entrepreneur Jenna Jameson teaming with Virgin Comics to create a series of comic books titled Shadow Hunter. Announced today at Comic-Con Int’l in San Diego, the first issue will go on sale at comic shops and online comic retailers in December, and a complete 144-page book will be available at all major book sellers in June of 2008.
Shadow Hunter is the story of a provocative superheroine who survives a brush with death only to find herself fighting the legions of hell for her very soul. However, don’t expect any sexual content or even nudity as the series is intended for mainstream audiences. Cover art for the first issue has been created by renowned comic and video-game illustrator Greg Horn.
“I’m thrilled to be collaborating with Virgin to bring this story to life, first as comics and eventually in film and other formats,” says Jameson. “Working with comics is creatively liberating’everything is possible. My character is sultry, sexy and kicks ass!’
Jameson is sure to have comic-book enthusiasts drooling as she makes her first appearance at the event that attracts more than 100,000 people each year. She will be speaking about Shadow Hunter and signing autographs for fans on Saturday, July 28 at 4:30 p.m. Images from the series will be available at he Virgin Comics booth at the San Diego Convention Center. A new site, JennaComix.com, has been created to host additional information, previews and pre-orders of the comic art and books.
