 FIRST OF ITS KIND ELECTRONIC COMIC BOOK FOR PCS,
 CYBERPUNK THRILLER APPEALS TO KIDS FROM 12 TO 60
 ASHLAND, Ore., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Adventure? Animation? Sound? What is this, some kind of new computer game? "No, Bit-brain," answers Lance Stone, hi-tech's newest hunk. "It's Hyper Comix."
 The first mass-marketed electronic comic book for IBM-style PCs makes a unique and unusual holiday gift for the 70 million or so PC users in the United States. The first issue is titled: Lance Stone: Trouble at the Woz ($20, PC Comix Inc., 800-944-0181).
 While loyal to the artistic conventions of traditional paper comic books, Hyper Comix feature stunning, full-color graphics, sound effects, spot animation and branching plot lines which allow the reader to follow the story from different points of view -- perfect for the computer user who has everything or the comic book enthusiast with a computer.
 A collector's first edition printed in a limited run of 10,000, Lance Stone: Trouble at the Woz, is published here by PC Comix Inc. "Hyper Comix represent the next step in the all-American art of comic books," said Paul Mace, co-founder and editor-in-chief of PC Comix.
 A cyberpunk thriller set in 21st-century Los Angeles, this special collector's edition features Lance Stone, a shy but handsome artist who becomes involved in a vast plan by a ruthless power to steal the very lifeforce of a living being, the most coveted possession in the universe. The plot is filled with action and intrigue, leading to a suspenseful ending.
 Mace, the first person to "unformat" a PC's hard disk and author of the popular Mace Utilities, is committed to the new world of electronic literature. His director of marketing, Jeff Angus, said: "PC Comix will be publishing additional installments to the Lance Stone series in the first quarter of 1993. We will follow up with new series featuring new heros and some well-known favorites on a regular basis."
 PC Comix Inc. is located at 400 Williamson Way, Ashland, OR 97520. Lance Stone: Trouble at the Woz is priced at $20, plus shipping. The company has a "taste-test disk," comprising one-third of the complete comic, available at $4.95. Copies of the comic, on 3-1/2-inch or 5-1/4- inch floppy disks, can be ordered by phone from PC Comix. System requirements include 640k RAM and VGA graphics capabilities.
