Latest Project from the Creator of “ElfQuest”

LOS ANGELES September 23, 2008: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Go! Comi and Wendy Pini will present the world premiere of the first volume of Pini's highly-anticipated graphic novel “Masque of the Red Death” this weekend at Yaoi-con in San Francisco.
In re-imagining the classic Edgar Allan Poe short story, Pini has infused “Masque of the Red Death” with elements of science fiction, horror, and yaoi-inspired erotica. “Masque” began as an innovative, highly cinematic Flash-based webcomic on Go! Comi's website (www.gocomi.com), where it continues to be hugely popular. Fans have been eagerly awaiting the print edition, which will be unveiled on Friday, September 26th at 11:00 a.m., at a panel in Main Events Room B of the Marriott San Mateo-San Francisco Airport Hotel. The panel will be hosted by Go! Comi's Creative Director, Audry Taylor. Pini will give a presentation on the story and answer questions from the audience on all topics.
Immediately after the panel, Pini will have an autograph session in the Lobby. In addition, Go! Comi will have an industry panel immediately preceding the “Masque” panel at 10:00 a.m., and fans are encouraged to attend for new announcements and manga previews, including a presentation on Go's first yaoi title, “Days of Cool Idols!.” Fans are also encouraged to come by the Go! Comi booth for freebies and the latest Go! Comi releases.
