What is known about Daring Comics? All I remember seeing is a few things about The Anomalies.

Do we know anything else? Was it funded? Were other titles posted about anywhere? Is it known what other creators were going to work for Daring with Shooter?

Joe James was going to draw it. Jim was going to write it. I owned a plot synopsis & such that was stolen from me. Chuck Rozanski was helping support it. Possibly in a financial aspect, but definitely in a promotion aspect.

Joe was unable to allocate time to draw it if I recall.

Daring Comics Press Release (Lifted from the Mile High Comics website)


PRESS RELEASE FROM JIM SHOOTER


Jim Shooter, former Marvel Comics editor in chief, and founder of Valiant/Acclaim, Defiant, and Broadway Comics, has announced the formation of his newest entry into the worldwide comics and entertainment market, DARING COMICS (TM)..

DARING COMICS' first release will be ANOMALIES (TM) #1, the first issue of an ongoing science fiction/super hero series set to launch early next year.

ANOMALIES is set in a not-too-distant future, in which humankind has spread throughout the Solar System, and everyone is genetically engineered to suit his or her environment. The title characters, the Anomalies, are mistakes � engineering disasters, who emerge as potential saviors of their civilization.

"This series brings into play a lot of the things I'm best known for," Shooter said. "Most of the characters are teen-agers or young adults, it's hard-science based super hero adventures, and one more time, it's back to the future for me."

ANOMALIES will be written by Shooter and drawn by the talented Joe James, best known for his work on Shooter's Dark Dominion.

The print run of ANOMALIES #1 will be limited to only 5,500 copies. The standard edition will have a $2.95 cover price, and will be a limited edition of 5,000 copies. The remaining 500 copies will be numbered and enhanced with the signatures of Jim Shooter and Joe James. Copies of the signed and numbered edition will retail for $14.95.

Why such a low print run? "Because DARING COMICS is mine and mine alone," Shooter explained. "My previous ventures were all launched on a much grander scale � with substantial financial backing. But, while more money enabled me to enter the market more aggressively, no matter what my deal with them was, investors always managed to force compromises in the quality of the work, in the integrity of the product and, in many ways, to impose serious constraints. By financing DARING COMICS myself, I may be limited to low print runs at first, but nothing can stop me from making our books truly excellent, and therefore, I believe we'll grow quickly."

DARING COMICS has already completed development on its second title, scheduled for release in early 1999, RATHH OF GOD (TM). RATHH OF GOD, also an ongoing title, set in the same future as ANOMALIES, unfolds the adventures of a professional executioner who lives in a time where life is revered above all and sacred beyond imagining. No one is more despised or more badly needed. "This one, RATHH, is unusual," said Shooter. "People will be pleasantly surprised by its insight and originality, unless they love clich�s. RATHH OF GOD is powerful, exciting stuff. It's unique."

DARING COMICS will expand slowly to a full line of eight super hero comic book titles. Each issue of each title will be designed to be read individually, but will be set in the same universe. Strict integrity of the universe and tight continuity between stories, both Shooter trademarks, will be carefully preserved.

"I see the comics world poised for a turnaround, and I want to be part of making that bright future come to pass." Shooter said. "I hope that people who have read and enjoyed my work in the past will join me in this new venture."

Jim Shooter can be reached at JCShooter7@aol.com or at Daring Comics * 244 Madison Ave. * Suite #385 * NY, NY 10016

Advance orders are being taken for ANOMALIES #1 and for ANOMALIES #1 SIGNED & NUMBERED. You may place your order through e-mail at nice@milehighcomics.com.

I never realized his plan was to finance Daring Comics himself. He's more of a creative genius than a financial guy, for sure.

Every creative idea that flows from his brain is money. Being a financial guy would be a wise move for him.
