Shon C. Bury's Nox is Back!
"Atomic Pop Art Entertainment, LLC, (APA) Press Release
For Immediate Release
SHON C. BURY’S NOX LANDS @ APA
Fort Smith, AR – January 9, 2007 – Imagine a world equally populated by mystical gurus, urban hipsters, and dark forces bent on tipping our drab, mundane world into shadows. That work is writer/creator Shon C. Bury’s Nox—an original graphic novel hitting shelves this June from upstart comic-book publisher Atomic Pop Art Entertainment. Originally formatted as a five-issue mini series that mapped the mythical Hero Cycle onto a modern world, the book will now be released as one complete graphic novel. “It’s a very self-aware study of the Hero Cylce; a low fantasy generously peppered with Everyman situations and what I like to refer to as comedy,” Shon says.
“It’s been an absolute joy working with the Nox creative team on my first OGN,” Shon says. “Nox was absolutely a product of a lifetime of reading and studying both comics and mythology—and my desire to combine the two. I always envisioned Joey and Bobby’s adventures as one, continues story...so I’m very thankful APA gave me the opportunity to bring my toys over to their very cool sandbox.”
Initially scheduled to be published in 2006, it was decided to remove Nox from the market when small-press newcomer, Narwain, mishandled their entry into the industry. Regardless, Nox garnered repeated critical acclaim throughout the industry and was named Comic Geek Speak’s Indy Challenge Winner in March of that year. Newsarama’s Troy Brownfield claimed Nox was “...an energetic book that turns your typical kid on a quest scenario on its head” while That’s Entertainment gave the book 10 out of 5 stars.
