 VETERAN LONG ISLAND COMIC-BOOK ARTISTS TO APPEAR AT AREA CONVENTION
 TO PROMOTE NEW 'ZEN INTERGALACTIC NINJA' COMIC FROM ARCHIE
 JERICHO, N.Y., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Famous comic-book artists and Long Island residents Ross Andru and Mike Esposito, best known for their work on Spiderman, Superman and Wonder Woman, will be promoting their newest project at the Long Island Comic-Book & Collector's Market on Sunday, Feb. 9.
 Their talents grace the pages of the much talked-about new comic from the Archie company, "Zen Intergalactic Ninja." The first issue of this book, delineating the adventures of an environmentally-friendly blue alien, will be released shortly.
 Also appearing at the convention will be Steve Stern, the co-creator and writer of Zen, who is originally from Lawrence and now resides in Valley Stream.
 "Since almost everyone involved with Zen is from Long Island, it seemed only appropriate for us to appear at this convention," said Stern. "And the timing also couldn't be more appropriate, since Zen is making his first live appearance on Earth the very next day."
 Stern was referring to the major event of the 1992 Toy Fair, when Zen arrives "live and in person" on Fifth Avenue and 23rd Street, as part of the promotion launching the entire Just Toys company line of Zen Intergalactic Ninja action figures.
 Convention founder and coordinator Ken Diamond, who also owns Cosmic Comics of Oceanside, said, "It's a real coup to have the key Zen creative people with us immediately before Zen gets his major national launch. It's no secret that he's being promoted in a big way by Surge Entertainment, the same people behind the success of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles."
 Interestingly, Surge is also a Long Island firm, with offices in Jericho.
 Zen himself is a short, blue, "cosmically cool" alien who teams up with an Earthboy named Jeremy and a band of unique Recycled Heroes to defend our precious environment from the evil, polluting Lord Contaminous and his minions.
 Andru, Esposito and Stern, as well as several other members of the Zen organization, will appear from noon to 3 p.m. at the Long Island Comic-Book and Collector's Market, held at the Holiday Inn on Sunrise Highway in Rockville Centre on Sunday, Feb. 9.
