Kevin Eastman - Publisher "HEAVY METAL MAGAZINE"
PLEASURE MODEL is the first illustrated novel from the newly-minted Heavy Metal Pulp project, a partnership between Tor Books and Heavy Metal magazine.  Heavy Metal Pulp will partner the top illustrators and designers from the iconic fantasy magazine with today’s most talented science fiction authors, blending the sensuous artistic style and graphic imagery of Heavy Metal with classic noir storytelling. The result is an all-new illustrated with a 21st-century edge. PLEASURE MODEL will be followed this year by books 2 and 3 of The Netherworld trilogy: The Bloodstained Man (June 2010) and Money Shot (November 2010). “I grew up reading comics and pulp novels,” says Kevin Eastman, Publisher of Heavy Metal. “Heavy Metal Pulp is the perfect combination of the two genres, the perfect format for science fiction, detective noir, horror, and fantasy. I’m very excited to work with Tor Books, breaking new ground with this hybrid graphic novel concept.” PLEASURE MODEL stars down-and-out police detective Rook, who gets his break when he's assigned to a bizarre and vicious murder case. The clues are colder than the corpse and the case looks like it'll remain unsolved—until an eyewitness is discovered. But the witness is an illegal gene-grown human with no emotion or empathy—Plesur's only purpose is to provide satisfaction to her owner, in any way. When the murderer targets Plesur in order to eliminate the one witness, Rook takes her into hiding to protect her. Thus begins a descent into the dark world of exotic pleasure bots and their illicit international buyers and manufacturers as Rook frantically looks for clues.  PLEASURE MODEL is a spellbinding combination of hardboiled action and fantastic graphic art, and a perfect showcase for this exciting collaborative project from the two leading publishing partners in their respective fields. Heavy Metal Pulp is a joint venture between Heavy Metal, the world’s foremost brand for science fiction and fantasy art, Red Sky Entertainment, a design/production company focused on innovative publishing content, and Tor Books.
