Press Release

Evergreen Studios reunites bestselling science fiction author, David Weber with comic writer Matt Hawkins (THINK TANK) and artist Linda Sejic for an original Honorverse tale and the return of science fiction heroine, Honor Harrington in TALES OF HONOR: BRED TO KILL releasing in June.

To celebrate, Evergreen Studios and Top Cow Productions are giving readers the chance to create their own original Honorverse tale with a special Facebook and Twitter contest. Using the hashtag #TOHSweeps, fans have the opportunity to tell their own original Honorverse story in six words for a chance to win one of six signed copies of TALES OF HONOR: ON BASILISK STATION, VOL. 1 trade paperbacks.

When Captain Honor Harrington and her alien tree cat Nimitz investigate her uncle’s disappearance, the two are forced to fight for their lives in a Solarian space casino battle arena. Honor may be genetically enhanced, but when she’s up against a super race bent on protecting their profitable slave business all bets are off.

“Where the first Tales of Honor arc was an adaptation of one of the novels, this is an original story by myself and Linda Sejic,” said Hawkins. “It’s an honor to add something new to the ever evolving Honorverse mythology!”


TALES OF HONOR: BRED TO KILL #1 provides readers with the perfect jumping-on point for one of the most exciting and dynamic science fiction franchises. The new story arc launches on June 17 and is available to pre-order with Diamond Code APR150508. Cover B with art by Rahsan Ekedal can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code APR150509.
