In July Viper Comics will release the much anticipated comic book, “The Middleman” which is created by Javier Grillo-Marxuach a writer and supervising producer for ABC’s Hit TV Show “LOST”. “When Javier approached us with the project, and after looking it over we just knew we had to publish it. The series is AWESOME!”, states Viper Comics President Jessie Garza.

The Middleman, a 4 issue mini-series, is written by Javier Grillo-Marxuach, and wonderously illustrated by Les McClaine (Amaze Ink/SLG’s Highway 13 , Eisner Award Nominee 2005 and Russ Manning Award Nominee 2002). Reality is a sham! Our way of life is constantly under attack by monsters, aliens and talking primates. The reason we – the normal world – are no congniant of the struggle? The Middleman. Working in absurd secrecy, the Middleman stares down threats from the extra- infra- and juxta-terrestial with a big gun and a have-a-nice-day grin. The Middleman: he fights evil so you don’t have to.

Middleman creator and author brings an impressive resume to comics. Javier Grillo-Marxuach is currently a writer and Supervising Producer on the hit ABC Network series “Lost.” He has written and produced episodes of “Boomtown,” “The Pretender,” “Jake 2.0,” “The chronicle,” “Charmed,” “Three” and “seaQuest.” Grillo-Marxuach has also sold and produced several network pilots, written and directed an award-winning short film, created a number of works for the stage and contributed freelance scripts and stories to “The Dead Zone,” “Dark Skies,” “Strange Frequency” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”
