Los Angeles, CA – November 18, 2008: The long-awaited graphic novel, “The Pilgrim,” by veteran comic creators Mike Grell (Sable, Green Arrow, Ironman) and Mark Ryan (“Transformers,” “The Prestige”), debuted on this week.

Episode one of “The Pilgrim” is available exclusively for free and in color at “The Pilgrim” is an adult-format novel that will appeal to fans of dark comics, sci-fi and horror.

Ryan originally wrote “The Pilgrim” as a screen play based on the use of psychics and occultists during World War II by Allied forces to influence the minds and strategies of the Nazi leadership, which helped save Britain from invasion. The graphic novel will intertwine historical characters with modern paranormal capabilities used in current intelligence-gathering operations to infiltrate and interdict hostile organizations and governments. Grell sets the tone for the dark storyline with his brilliantly descriptive and gritty illustration.

“The story behind Colonel Kim Seymour and 'The Pilgrim' and has been living in my head for many years, so it's wonderful to see it finally brought to life,” says Mark Ryan. “The real reward for me is to see this brilliantly accomplished by Mike Grell. He truly is the best in the business and knows how to illustrate the complexity and brutality of modern Special Forces intelligence operations in graphic and compelling detail.”

Ryan and Grell reunited with Mike Gold, one of the founders of ComicMix and former senior editor for DC Comics to host “The Pilgrim.” The trio originally teamed in 1991 to develop the 50th Anniversary edition of the comic-book “Green Arrow” for DC Comics. launched in September 2007 as a destination for everyone who loves comics, TV shows, movies, games and pop culture.
