"A1 will relaunch next June as a full color monthly comic.
Then two months later the first A1 annual launches. 144 pages of stories and art from creators around the world. This will not be a collection of the monthly book, this will be completely different material in a completely different format. The monthly book will be a 32 pages American sized comic. The annual will be an 8 x 11 over-sized hardback book. There will be a second annual called MONSTER MASSACRE that will emphasize more fun, sex, blood and action (not always in that order) and will be in the same over-sized hardback format.
Atomeka will continue packaging at least one issue of HEAVY METAL each year. This will serve to promote what we are doing to their audience so much of the material in those issues of Heavy Metal will appear in the Monster Massacre and A1 annuals."
