Terminal Press has secured some prime real estate at the Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con June 19th-21st at booth #1000 and will be celebrating with an exclusive "DIMMU BORGIR: Dark Fortress" preview book.

Terminal Press, in association with Nuclear Blast, had previously announced the "DIMMU BORGIR: Dark Fortress" preview book that will be available at the Nuclear Blast booth (#116) at this year's San Diego Comic Con. Today, Terminal Press announced that they will, in fact, have a separate Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con Exclusive version that will be ready to make a surprise debut at this weekend's convention.

The book contains a thirteen page first-look preview of the title along with pin-ups and covers which are exclusive to this edition. This will be an extremely limited run and will be available on a first come, first served basis: no pre-orders or reserve tickets are available.

The book's writer, Brian Ferrara, and artist Narek Gevorgian will be at the Terminal Press booth for signings, sketches, and to field any questions about their newest project.

"DIMMU BORGIR: Dark Fortress" utilizes the artistic vision and lyrical themes of the biggest black metal band in the world, DIMMU BORGIR, to create a powerful and thought-provoking fantasy horror comic book. The full "DIMMU BORGIR: Dark Fortress" graphic novel will be available later this year. A promo image is available here.

Terminal Press will be located on the convention floor at booth #1000 at the Wizard World Philadelphia Convention from June 19th-21st. Visit TerminalPress.com for more info.

DIMMU BORGIR’s most recent studio album, 2007’s "In Sorte Diaboli," sold over 14,000 copies in the U.S. the first week of release according to Nielsen SoundScan. It secured the no. 2 slot on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart, no. 43 slot on the Top 200 Albums chart, and marked the highest charting album debut in Nuclear Blast USA's history.

The band’s latest DVD, 2008’s "The Invaluable Darkness," a three-disc release of two DVDs with a bonus audio CD, sold over 1,400 copies in the U.S. after one week on the market and debuted at no. 5 on the Nielsen SoundScan “Top DVD Music Videos” chart. The top four artists on the chart for that week were (in order): AC/DC, ZZ Top, Eagles, and John Mayer.

I love how Narek Gevorgyan's name is spelled wrong on the cover.
