Actron #242 by Stanley Lieber

Jason Leivian writes:

We’re pleased to present an issue length adventure by Stanley Lieber. Stanley Lieber is a comics factory, a house of ideas, a bullpen bullet, a Jim Starlin drawing, a Herzog documentary. He just finished a new novel, 1OCT1993. It’s a 6″x9″ paperback, 280 pages. (Preview at http://1oct1993.com.) It’s retailing for $14.99. Next he’s compiling a comics anthology called FAKE which will contain the secrets of the internet’s true birthday.

“ACTRON #242 serves as a prequel to the still unfinished graphic novel, MY STRUGGLE.

Begun in late 2006, this project commemorates the 20th anniversary of the creation of ACTRON when I was in the second grade. Issue #242 represents the accurate numbering if I had continued to be publish the comic monthly since its inception in 1986.

Well, accurate if ACTRON #242 had been published in 2006.

Colorist Pete Toms helped bring this issue across the finish line just prior to the four year mark.

It’s entirely possible that MY STRUGGLE will be completed in 2011.”
