Studio 407 has picked up the Smuggling Spirits series from the defunct Ambrosia publishing and is releasing the Ben Fisher and Michael Henderson as a trade this April.
Studio 407’s managing director Alex Leung says “We picked up Smuggling Spirits from Ambrosia, and we thought it was an incredible book that went under the radar, and did not get the exposure it deserved when it was first released in single volumes. I think both Ben and Michael are incredible talents to watch for and their skills have meshed perfectly to produce an incredibly unique storytelling experience. We feel extremely fortunate to be involved with this book.”
Studio 407 has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek, that you can read after the jump.

Set in a nightmarish vision of the past where deadly monstrosities called â€œdarklingsâ€ roam the shadows of Prohibition-Era America, Al Stone is a bootlegger who finds himself on the run when he inadvertently stumbles upon the bloody secret of the creaturesâ€™ survival. As the beasts close in to take back whatâ€™s theirs, Al and his young ward, Nathan, must make their final stand. Smuggling Spirits is a pulse pounding, thrill ride that blends the action noir of Sin City with the horror and suspense of Hellboy. Read what Rue Morgue calls â€œa shot of white lightning.â€
Smuggling Spirits arrives April 29, 2009.
