Read Deepak Chopra’s BEYOND #1 Online for FREE!

June 11, 2008

The first issue of Deepak Chopra’s Beyond has been summed up perfectly in Comics Bulletin’s 4-bullet review: “This is a great first issue of a new series — the characters and their personalities are introduced without being too heavy-handed, the dilemma of the plot is posed, the world is explored. Honestly, this feels like it might turn out to be some of Ron Marz’s best work.  I am surprisingly pleased with this new series, and I’m actually looking forward to buying the second issue. That’s not something I can say very often with new comic series, unfortunately, so I’m always thrilled when it happens.”

The feedback on this issue has been so overwhelmingly positive from fans, reviewers and retailers alike that we’ve underestimated the demand and it’s been selling out in stores across the country!  Since we’re only a few weeks away from Beyond #2 hitting comic shops on June 25th, we decided the fastest way to meet the increasing demand for this issue is to post the entire issue online FOR FREE on our MySpace page.

Beyond follows a brutal physical and spiritual journey of a desperate husband searches for his missing wife while on vacation in India, and is based on an original science fiction story by Deepak Chopra, and adapted by Ron Marz (Green Lantern, Witchblade, Samurai: Heaven & Hell) and illustrated by Edison George.  You don’t want to miss this opportunity to get on board now with the story that Augie De Blieck Jr. at Comic Book Resources says “… piles on the mysteries at a breakneck pace, giving us exotic locales and beautiful art to keep our eyes excited.”
