Dear family, friends, and colleagues
It's the twelfth day of Garrie being hospitalized. He is now in intermediate care unit at Borromeus  Hospital, Bandung. Four days ago his health condition decreased and lost consciousness due to the unprocessed toxins in his body which is unable to exit through his kidneys.

He is now  conscious and able to talk, vital signs are stable. The next step is to do a surgery in his heart to insert a ring, alongside oral medications.
But since his kidneys failing after his heart stopped for 10 minute during 30 December attack , the surgery has yet to be done. He has been through five dialysis procedures so far.
Medications are being given to help his body process the toxins. We pray that his kidneys could be cured so the heart surgery can be proceeded.

We'd like to thank you all for your endless support through donations and morale since Garrie was in ICU. Let's all hope the best for his recovery.
A1 ANTHOLOGY Returns With Titan: ODYSSEY

Titan Comics is bringing back the award-winning A1 anthology series by Dave Elliot in June 2013.

To celebrate the return, Titan Comics are teaming up to give readers an exclusive inside look at the first three ongoing stories in A1.

Today, we look at Odyssey by Elliott and artists Garrie Gastonny and Sakti Yuwono. Here's what Elliott has to say about the story:

"There are two known faces to the superhero BLAZING GLORY.

For many it is the comic book series that was published from the early 1940s to the late 1990s.

For others it was the soldier who has fought in every major conflict the United States has been involved in over the last 70 years. He became a bit of a myth as most couldn't believe a man could live that long without aging. It became easier to believe he was simply one of many, but for those men that fought along side him he was the life saver. Their Guardian Angel on the field of conflict.

But everything changes and even our greatest heroes fall from grace... Even if it needs a big push to get them started.

Blazing Glory will slowly find out the world has changed. America isn't the place he remembers it to be. So to find out what the country has become and to figure out if he has a place in this new world he embarks on an Odyssey of discovery.

He will find the country has an immigration issue beyond our greatest fears. These immigrants aren't aliens but they aren't human.
And there's a possibility he may be one of them."

Image Comics Reunites Sarkar and Gastonny In New Series

Image Comics is pleased to announce that writer Sam Sarkar and artist Garrie Gastonny (Warren Ellis' Supergod), the team behind Caliber: First Canon of Justice, have reunited to unlock the horror and action within their new miniseries THE VAULT.


THE VAULT is about a small team of treasure hunters, struggling to excavate a dangerous and legendary treasure pit before a massive storm hits Sable Island, the "Graveyard of the North Atlantic." Equipped with all the latest technology, the scientists believe they are prepared against all of nature's fury, but nothing can prepare them for what they are about to unleash.



"THE VAULT is kind of a contemporary Pandora's Box story," explained creator and writer, Sam Sarkar. "Though it appears on the surface to be a pretty straightforward story, it has most of its mythology buried deeply. It gets uncovered both literally and figuratively as the pit gets excavated."



When asked how THE VAULT found its home at Image, Sarkar replied: "Well, I'm incredibly fortunate that most of the lasting gifts of Caliber were the relationships it helped to cement. Chief among them, David Elliott. Dave and I have soldiered through quite a few storms personally and professionally, and when I asked him to edit THE VAULT, he didn't hesitate. There are few people I trust as much. I asked Dave what he thought the best way to release THE VAULT would be and Image was at the top of his list of publishers to approach. I've always been a fan of Image, not just because of their model, but because of the quality of titles they have represented and continue to represent."



THE VAULT #1 (1 of 3), a 32-page full color comic book, will be on sale in stores July 27th for $3.50 and is available to order in the June 2011 edition of Diamond Previews (Diamond Order Code: JUN110501).

The Arthurian legend as retold in the American Old West, with all of its great symbolism, magic and spirit of adventure. The Knights of the Round Table are all gunslingers bound by a code of honor to protect the weak and defend the innocent until they are undone from within by their own moral corruption. In this tale, Caliber itself is a tattooed six-gun, given to Arthur by the Indians and imbued with supernatural power. The secret of the gun is that it is never loaded with bullets, but when a man with Justice on his side is holding it, it can fire. When it does, it fires Thunder itself and never misses.

Genre: Mythical Western; Fantasy
Comic Book Release: May 2008
