Glow-in-the-Dark Radio Comics Proudly Presents A New Issue of The Adventures of Alibi Jones!
Independent Vermont Publisher Shares Self-Contained Science Fiction Story Alibi Jones: Christmas Present – A Time-Travel Tale With An Unusual Family Holiday Encounter…
(BURLINGTON, Vermont – December 2019) Independent Comic Creator Mike Luoma and Glow-in-the-Dark Radio Comics, the Independent Vermont Publisher, proudly announce the release of the third issue in their ongoing series The Adventures of Alibi Jones!
The issue features Alibi Jones: Christmas Present, where Alibi Jones accidentally travels back through time to when his father BC was a young hitman for the Vatican on an early mission. Will Alibi screw up BC’s current assassination assignment? Will BC kill him instead? Can Alibi Jones survive and get back to his own time? In time for Christmas? And how about that Christmas Tree his Aunt Anita asked for?
It’s a time-travelling tale with holiday overtones. As for the title? A Present can be a gift. One can be Present. And live in the Present. The story explores all these permutations… presently.
Vermont Artist Kasey Bouchard makes his debut here, illustrating the pages set in Alibi’s Present. For the pages that take place in Alibi’s Past – in the time of BC, the Vatican Assassin – the art team from VATICAN ASSASSIN: The Graphic Novel returns! Cristian Navarro is on pencils and inks and Juan Carlos Quattordio on colors, and having them back together to tell the part of the tale that takes place in that era with BC is pretty special.
There’s also a beautiful portrait towards issue’s end of a cat-like alien Dakhur by award-winning Canadian illustrator Eric Orchard (Maddy Kettle, Bera the One-Headed Troll). And an Alibi Jones pin-up by artist Federico Guillen (Good Samaritan: Unto Dust, other Alibi Jones covers).
The cover art this issue is by renowned Vermont Artist Blair D. Shedd, best known for his covers for Doctor Who and Robotech comics.
Creator and author Mike Luoma also lettered, edited and produced this issue.
Though the title character also appears in novels written by Luoma, the intent with the Alibi Jones‘ comics is to create stand-alone adventures that don’t require greater knowledge of the cast of characters involved.
“I want people to be able to pick up this issue and enjoy this story, no matter what they might have read before,” Luoma said. “Those who have read other Alibi Jones stories will get a little more out of it, that’s only natural. But new readers will still have all they need to enjoy the tale.”
Luoma explained that, while newcomers will be aware this is a “lived-in” universe, they won’t be confused by too much extraneous detail. “What you need to enjoy this story is right here, on these pages.”
Luoma is also a podcaster – he’s been narrating his fiction on his long-running, weekly Glow-in-the-Dark Radio podcast since 2006. Coinciding with the release of the new comic, he featured an audio adaptation of Alibi Jones: Christmas Present on the podcast over the weekends of December 8th and 15th, 2019.
The Adventures of Alibi Jones #3 by Mike Luoma, Kasey Bouchard, Cristian Navarro and Juan Carlos Quattordio, published by Glow-in-the-Dark Radio Comics, is available now digitally at comiXology.com and at DriveThruComics.com and in print and digital at IndyPlanet.com.
