Exclusive: IDOLIZED Gets Super(Model)
Late 2011, they held an unique promotion allowing fans of Aspen to vote for the looks of the lead characters in Idolized, an upcoming superhero series that plays with the format of both superheroes and reality competition TV shows. Now their second unique promotion takes super-model Rachel Clark and casts her as the main character of Idolized, Joule. Clark, in photo covers taken by fashion photographer Michael Schwartz, will appear on these alternate covers for each issue, starting with #1 in June 2012.
As for the drawn covers to the series, Aspen announced as well they've secured Art Adams, Joe Benitez, and Keron Grant, all also known for their pretty ladies, with more cover announcements to come.
A SUPER-MODEL SUPER-HERO!
ASPEN COMICS PARTNERS WITH SUPER-MODEL RACHEL CLARK AND HIGH-FASHION PHOTOGRAPHER MICHAEL SCHWARTZ TO CREATE STUNNING PHOTO COVERS FOR IDOLIZED PLUS, ASPEN ANNOUNCES IDOLIZED COVERS FROM ART ADAMS, JOE BENITEZ, KERON GRANT AND MORE!
“We’re thrilled to be working with such amazing talent for IDOLIZED”, said Aspen President Frank Mastromauro. “Rachel and Michael are major names in the fashion industry, and they’ve brought something truly special, unique, and absolutely gorgeous to our covers.” Rachel has been the face of Louis Vuitton, D&G and Victoria’s Secret’s ‘PINK’ line. She’s appeared in magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and Vogue, and in ad campaigns for Levis, Louis Vuitton, D&G, Barney’s and Neiman Marcus. She’s walked the runway for the likes of Christian Dior, John Galliano, Hermes, Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Donna Karan, Salvatore Ferragamo and numerous others. Perhaps most importantly, she’s also a total comic book junkie and a major World of Warcraft player.
“It was really exciting to bring a drawing to life,” Schwartz raved, “especially with such an amazing model to help make this happen.” The shoot took place on Sunday, January 15th in New York, and nearly 1500 images were taken over the course of the day. In fact, there so many spectacular photos taken, that the Aspen editorial team had a nearly impossible time narrowing them down to just 1 cover image for each issue. “At some point, we may have to collect all of our other favorites and publish them in a book of just the photos,” said Aspen Editor-in-Chief Vince Hernandez. “They’re just really, really cool, stunning images and we want to be able to get as many of them out there, in print, as possible.” Of course, each issue of IDOLIZED will be having traditional comic books covers as well, and they’ve got an incredible line-up of some of the biggest names in comics providing those covers, including ART ADAMS, JOE BENITEZ and a painted cover from KERON GRANT.
