Almost a decade after the demise of NOW Entertainment Corporation, Founder Tony C. Caputo is relaunching NOW Comics as NOW Comics 3.0, a new corporation with a fresh outlook, new ideas, and new titles expected later this year.

The first title to ship will be the 400-page Ralph Snart Adventures TP, with a new, wraparound cover by creator Marc Hansen. Solicited in the August Previews for shipping on October 3, this collection will retail for just $24.95US ($34.95CAN), and will include the majority of Hansen's Ralph Snart issues from 1986-94. Furthermore, NOW 3.0 will offer a Previews Exclusive hardcover edition of the trade. Featuring gold foil and a "Back from the Dead" wraparound cover by Hansen, each copy will be signed and numbered by the creator, and is scheduled to arrive in stores at the end of October -- just in time for Halloween!

In addition, NOW 3.0 has announced plans for 128-page Vespers GN by Caputo, as well as a Fright Night GN by Caputo and Neil Vokes.

After launching in late 1985, NOW Comics introduced its first title, Ralph Snart Adventures, in May 1986. The company went on to become NOW Entertainment Corporation in 1991, before closing its doors in late 1994.

NOW produced almost 1,000 publications from 1986 to 1994, including Vector (one of the world's first computer generated, color comic book) and the fan-favorite Ralph Snart Adventures, as well as those based on popular licenses such as Speed Racer, Astro Boy, The Terminator, The Real Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters II, Fright Night, Married...With Children, Twilight Zone, The Green Hornet, and Mr. T. and the T Force.

"I believe our licensed titles are one of the main reasons for a slow resurgence of interest from fans," said Caputo. "We produced highly recognized characters that still live in various media and pop culture, and they were distributed to the [specialty and mainstream markets] for almost a decade."

In regards to why he was bringing NOW back, Caputo said, "Since my adventure with NOW Comics, I've helped three friends with their Internet ventures. There's a lot to be said about experience. Oscar Wilde once called experience the name everyone gives to their mistakes."
