Move Over Superstars of Yesteryear
Basie S. Rocks The Comics World


Most of you already know all about the new ongoing series The Masked Mutant by comic creator to watch out for Basie S. What you might not know is that since the great reviews started hitting the book has been building serious indy buzz. And each subsequent printing of these books have been flying off the shelves!

With anticipation of the at-the-printers-as-we-speak second issue building, Basie has proven once again that 7 year old know-how beats out "big two" business acumen and has ordered his publishing and production crew to give the people what they want... and get this wildfire hit back in print once again.

And in a publicity move that shocked San Francisco's beautiful Hayes Valley district, this new print run was delivered not by the typical official armed courier Basie S. is famous for... but by the Lucha Libre star of the book... the actual Masked Mutant himself!


We here at the Isotope were thrilled to get to meet this larger than life hero!

Comic creators of the industry should take note of the impressive marketing wizardry and great business sense of this rising young talent. No doubt these fourth printings of The Masked Mutant #1 are going to be selling out just as fast as the previous printings but we sure are happy to have them in stock right now. Drop us an email to reserve your copy before they do!

... The Masked Mutant #1!


Now in stock at the Isotope is the just-launched ongoing debut series The Masked Mutant from comic creator to watch out for Basie S. This high-action Lucha Libre adventure series kicks off with a bang, with a manic-paced battle from the San Francisco International Airport to the Golden Gate Bridge... and even into outer space!

We only have a few copies of Basie's limited-edition first printing, so if you'd like a copy before this sells out like his previous book did, please do drop me an email.

The Lucha Libre Legend Returns
Cartoon Network Goes Santo


Just this week Cartoon Network announced their new line-up for 2007 which includes a new show based on the life and legend of El Santo, the greatest Mexican wrestler of all time! Immortalized in the ring and out, Santo was the star of television, comic books, and more than 50 gloriously trashy films (check out some clips here). One part Elvis, one part Harrison Ford, one part Evel Knievel, and one hundred percent folk hero, Santo's worldwide fame and popularity have made his silver mask synonymous with everything cool everywhere.

Working closely with series creator and producers is the legend's real-life son and true Isotope amigo El Hijo del Santo (ask us about the Lucha Libre Switchblade Incident that almost landed us in jail sometime) which will ensure the show has all the heroics, high flying action, and weird mystical powers we've come to expect from the legend.

Can't wait to see animated Santo? Neither could we, that's why we were poking around on Cartoon Network Mexico's website where we found this page with downloadable Santo cartoons. Nice!
