Wayward Raven Media is excited to announce the addition of James B. Emmett to the flock. The talented author/illustrator signed a contract for the development of his comic book series The Committee. The story takes place in a world where the mystical and scientific merge as an ongoing battle to preserve the world unfolds through conflicts with beings of unimaginable power and malice. The clock keeps ticking down, while uniquely gifted members of the Committee race to find the truth about the universe and themselves. Big magic equals big fun before a big bang destroys us all.

In addition to signing Mr. Emmett, Wayward Raven Media has been busy preparing for an eventful upcoming schedule. The independent comic book company is launching a Kickstarter campaign on April 9th where contributors can get Signed C: the missing #2 and a variety of other original artwork and merchandise before it is available to the general public. There will be varied pledge packages to fit any budget and exclusive limited-time offers.
Signed C: the missing is best described as a mix of Lara Croft and the TV show Supernatural. In it, a talent agent, who happens to be a legendary sorceress, travels the known realms seeking a kidnapped client. Information will be available on the website www.WaywardRaven.com and also on Twitter @waywardraven.
Additionally, Wayward Raven has expanded its convention schedule this year, kicking things off at the Asbury Park ComiCon April 12-13th (see www.asburyparkcomicon.com for additional details).
