PRO SE PRODUCTIONS’ REESE UNLIMITED AND AC COMICS CROSSOVER ANNOUNCED

AC Comics, one of the longest lived and popular independent comic companies in the industry, and Pro Se Productions have teamed up to bring AC’s characters to life in prose adventures! The first such work, a digest novel by Barry Reese, NIGHTVEIL: THE QUIET GIRLS, is due for release in a matter of days. Pro Se Productions announces today that not only will Barry Reese, the creator of the Reese Unlimited imprint, return to the world of Nightveil, he will do so by bringing AC’s mystical heroine face to face with his own characters, Lazarus Gray and Gravedigger!

“As a longtime fan of Nightveil and the entire AC Comics line,” says Reese, “it was an amazing honor to get to write the character in THE QUIET GIRLS. Now to have the opportunity to cross Nightveil over with my original creations…! Words really can’t describe how excited I am about this project. Believe me when I say that I’m trying my best to make fans of all these characters happy with the end product.“

The as of yet untitled crossover title will appear in early 2018. NIGHTVEIL: THE QUIET GIRLS will appear in coming days and more AC works are in process, including works by Bobby Nash and Gary Phillips, as well as anthologies spotlighting various characters.

“This crossover,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “is just an opportunity at greatness too awesome to pass up. To have Bill Black’s Nightveil not only in the more than capable hands of Barry, but to actually have Barry’s own creations fight side by side with her makes for a near perfect storm of New Pulp and Super Heroics. As both a professional and a fan, I am on the edge of my seat for this book.”

The AC/Reese Unlimited Crossover will feature a stunning cover by George Sellas.

Saw BLADE RUNNER 2049 today and loved it! I was worried that it might somehow mar the original but it was quite the opposite – I actually think this one was better than the first film! The lovely Ana De Armas stars as Joi in the film and an image of her accompanies this post.

Meanwhile, Ray Bara posted this review of LAZARUS GRAY VOLUME SEVEN on Amazon:

Another Barry Reese New Pulp Classic! 5 Stars

Barry Reese continues to churn out New Pulp gems. Lazarus Gray Volume Seven was awesome! Assistance Unlimited is back in full force, literally and figuratively. They’re all here: Lazarus, Samantha, Morgan, Eun, Abby Cross, Eidolon, and Black Terror. They’re joined by the mystic, Sheridan Masters. They fight several great villains: their recurring enemy, Femi; the Mexican criminal mastermind, El Demonio; and the King in Yellow, the lord of another terrible dimension. Lazarus Gray is his usual pillar and strength and righteousness. He defeats the bad guys and leads his team with his power and wisdom. The action in this novel is fierce, constant, and enjoyable. Assistance Unlimited saves Sovereign City with style, grace, and energy. Sheridan Masters is a nice new character. Femi is a wonderful recurring foe, though she might have finally met her match … Or has she? Reese has done it again. Another action-packed adventure that leaves me wanting more. Read this one and anything else Barry Reese writes!

lg01_lazarus_solo_with_textBestselling author Mat Nastos took time out of his busy schedule to review The Adventures of Lazarus Gray Volume Seven on Amazon recently. Here’s what he had to say:

REESE PULLS OFF NEW PULP GREATNESS ONCE AGAIN 5 Stars

Read through through Kindle Unlimited and loved it enough that I’m going to buy it as well. I have been a fan of the Lazarus Gray series since Barry Reese published the first volume years ago. Reese writes rich characters and great action. The only bad thing about Lazarus Gray Volume 7? It looks like this is going to be the last entry in the series for a while.

This book is great for fans of new pulp adventure and was perfect for me!

Thanks, Mat! I’m glad you continue to enjoy the series. I’ve written the first two stories in what will eventually be Volume 8 but I have several projects that I have to work on before we get around to wrapping that one up. Thanks again for the kind words.

Funtony47 posted a five star review of The Adventures of Lazarus Gray Volume 7 at Amazon. Here’s his review:

Princess Femi is back and allied with a range of bad guys to once again take over the world ! What else were you expecting from a Lazarus Gray baddie ?

I flat out refuse to spoil the fun so you have to read the latest awesome chapters in the Lazarus Gray and Assistance Unlimited saga. You won’t be dissapointed, dissatisfied or discombobulated !!! So jump into the story and hope he has LG 8 in the works for when you finish !!!

Raven is back with a new review of THE ADVENTURES OF LAZARUS GRAY VOLUME 7. Let’s see what he says:

Perhaps I should give a SPOILERS WARNING here, as I have rewritten this review multiple times, but may still reveal too much for some readers.

The tale begins with archeologist/adventurer Sheridan Masters and his lover Carmen at the ancient city of Hamunaptra. They have come looking for “the yellow sign” and a book of ancient lore. When the city collapses around then, Master finds himself with the book and a doorway for escape. When he emerges, the stars are all wrong…

The book is a solid addition to the Lazarus Gray collection. New enemies and old combine to bring Gray to a place he never thought he would ever be. Hastur, or the King, in Yellow is one of the Great Old Ones of The Lovecraft Mythos. The Elder Gods are dangerous beyond Gray’s usual occult powered foes.
This doesn’t mean that none of Gray’s former opponents appear in the story. To make the tale even more devilish, Princess Femi and her disciple Madison Montgomery are deeply involved. So is newcomer El Demonio, whose henchmen use Mexican “sugar skulls” to terrify a man they will later kidnap.

Before the action is over some will be captured, people will die, and Gray will find himself beyond the earthly veil—in Dread Carcosa, a forbidden land of fear! When the members of Assistance Unlimited, along with Eidolon, Abby Winters, and the Black Terror go, head to head with eldritch beings, someone is bound to be badly injured or killed—or worse…
Barry Reese cleverly mixes horror, adventure, and above all pulp into a tasty treat for his adoring fans! Add a touch of romance as the seasoning and the tale becomes a perfect example of Reese’s art! I doubt that any fan of pure pulp fiction will be unable to resist reading it all in one sitting! I will say this; you won’t leave the table without hungering for more!

I give this book five stars plus!
Thanks, Raven! Glad you enjoyed it!

Amazon user Marshall gave the new Captain Action novel 4 stars out of 5. Thanks so much, Marshall!

Here’s what he said:

I really enjoyed this third book in the Captain Action series (not counting the Lady Action book which I also enjoyed). The book refers to the prior adventures, but you don’t have to have read those to enjoy it. Fast-paced and full of all the things Cap is known for (disguises, weapons, etc.). If you liked the prior books, this is more of the same (plus a great homage to another character we know and love). Heartily recommended for Cap fans.
