Hubris Comics Press ReleaseEdit
For Immediate Release:
HUBRIS COMICS AND VAULT-TEC INCORPORATED UNVEIL "VAULT BOY MEETS HELL'S CHAIN GANG" LIMITED FIVE-PART MINISERIES
The very best in Invincible Entertainment and Impenetrable Vaults team up to bring comic fans a gripping grimoire of greatness!
From their headquarters in Washington, DC, Hubris Comics announced today plans to bring a beloved American Icon into the Hubris Comics Universe - none other than the beloved Vault Boy Character.
"Vault Boy was the perfect choice for our new Hell's Chain gang series", says Hubris Comics Chief of Publishing Peter Shiner, "In which those Valiant Vigilantes take on Chairman Cheng's Commie Cyborg Corps - after all, Vault Boy knows a thing or two about going up against that Red Menace!"
The five-part miniseries will feature an alternate future in which Chinese Communists have invaded America. Vault Boy and Hell's Chain Gang are the last, best hope for America to break free from the shackles of Communism in this cautionary tale of vigilance.
"It has always been Vault-Tec's mission to educate and protect our Countrymen from the Communist threat", commented Vault-Tec Public Relations Executive Joanne Strausser, "This exciting project is a perfect opportunity to thrill young Americans while sending home an important message for us all: Every good American must help shoulder the burden of freedom, and always be wary of the Communist Threat".
The first issue of this miniseries will be available on newsstands everywhere this Holiday Season.

Letters to the Editor, Feb. 2077Edit
"Requiem for an Antagonist"
Grognak the Barbarian is an excellent comic for many reasons, but one of the most widely-respected ones is the depth of its villains. From the cold-blooded manipulations of the Man-Saurian to the love-hate romance with Femme-Ra, the stories of Grognak's enemies are every bit as fascinating as his own tales.
But, for my money, no tale is more tragic and more fascinating than that of the AntAgonizer. While never developed as fully as major villains like Skullpocalypse or Mastadonald, the portrait of the orphaned girl raised by ants and instilled with a bitter hatred of humanity has tremendous potential for reader connection and possible redemption.
However, in "Grognak and the Ants of Agony," Mr. Neptura threw away all of that potential by simply treating the AntAgonizer as a two-dimensional villain with a futile and pointless grudge against mankind. His writing replaced her subtle undertones of lost humanity and tragically lost innocence with the worst sort of mustache-twirling cliched dialogue. It was an offense to a deep and tragic character.
How a hack like that continues to find work in comics is beyond my comprehension. Hubris Comics should fire him and return the series to the capable hands of Mr. Moorellis. Until that time, I REFUSE to buy another comic from what USED to be my favorite publisher!

A text noteEdit
When you draw your sword, Grelok lowers his great horned head and bellows laughter in your face. You grit your teeth and swing a mighty two-handed blow, the magical blade ringing clearly, even amid the tumult of throaty cackling.
You swing the sword so fiercely, it escapes your grip and hurtles into the open maw of the monstrosity, lost from sight in the arid darkness of Grelok's throat. You step back as Grelok jerks his mouth shut and stands upright. He is still for a moment, then starts clawing at his neck. Muffled, a ringing can be heard as if from a great distance.
Suddenly, Grelok's chest bursts in a fount of viscous, green blood. The Ringing can be heard clearly now, and as thick lifeblood oozes around the protruding tip of the magic sword, the stormclouds swirling the peak are already clearing. Grelok is defeated!
(Thanks for playing!)
