(Please click the image or this link to download the PDF file.)
Though the City of Heroes are done, the members of the Guardians of the Dawn superhero group have one last seasonal gift to give.
There are many stories of the Guardians that will go untold. Questions that will go unanswered. Adventures that will go on without us.
But in this EXTRA-LARGE 48-page Special, FOUR such stories will be told.
* “Walkaround” – Brand new Guardian Furia Powers gets a personal tour of the Guardians of the Dawn supergroup base and learns some of its history and secrets.
* “The Making of a Woman Scorned” – Who is the supervillain named Scorned, and why does she have an obsessive hatred of Galatea Powers? You’ll find out here!
* “First Guardians” – The untold first meeting of the Guardians of the Dawn is revealed. What would bring Jimmy Hellfighter, Libertarian Avenger, and Captain Paragonna together? And how is it connected to one of the most pivotal events in the “Justice-Knights” series? Special guest appearance of Dark Synaspe from JKComics.com
* “Through the Door” – The final meeting for a certain Guardian presumed lost, and the final consequence of a decision that was made.

Get Brutal Productions
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Get Brutal Productions Announces Creation of Battlerock Comics
Georgia – December 24, 2012 – Get Brutal Productions, a one-man production company designed to highlight various multimedia services, has announced the creation of a subsidiary production group specifically designed for fan-made comic books.
Battlerock Comics will service as an online center for all comics published by Get Brutal Productions. This will encompass both the comics previously published by writer/creator David 2 and the new comics that will be released in 2013.
Writer/Creator David 2 began work with online comics in 2009 with “Guardians of the Dawn Spotlight”, a regular fan-made not-for-profit series that used characters created in the “City of Heroes” Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game owned by NCSoft. Eventually three regular series were created using characters in the “City of Heroes” game, including “Spotlight”, “Tales from Paragon City”, and “The Guardian Powers”. David 2 also worked with other fan-made comic artists on several projects, including creating stories and cover designs to the “City of Comic Creators Compendium” series, and a comical “video-comic” series on YouTube called “Ask Captain Catastrophe”.
The first series under the Battlerock Comics title will be “Future’s Guardian”, another regular fan-made not-for-profit series that uses characters in the “Champions Online” MMORPG as provided by Perfect World Entertainment. The series follows from an earlier series published online in 2011 called “The Lost Adventures of Galatea Future”, which will end with its fourth issue to transition the characters over to the new series.
David 2 points out that online comic series provide a way for fans of comic books to appreciate the world of online multiplayer gaming and even encourages readers to participate.
“Fan-made comics give the MMO providers something they otherwise would never have,” he said, “and that is free advertising for their game. Traditionally they would have to work with established comic book publishers like Dark Horse or Image Comics, and their representations would barely match the detail in the MMO itself. With fan-made comics, readers see the issue, they see the images from the game, the detail of the characters in that game, they realize that this is an environment that they can interact in themselves, and they see all of the references to the game itself, namely where they can find it.”

New hero Furia Powers of the recently resurrected Guardians of the Dawn superhero group was recently seen on Talos Island along with two other heroes defending the area from a Rikti Invasion Force. The Rikti have been hitting Paragon City and the Rogue Isles hard for almost a whole week, and yet these three heroes managed to hold off an entire invasion force before the invaders were chased away by the Vanguard.
When asked to give a statement to the Paragon Times, Ms. Powers simply said “We are heroes. This is what we do!”
