Sliders (1996) comic books
Sliders, one of the most unique and imaginative TV series in recent years, is headed back to the Fox Network as a mid-season replacement, and will make its debut in comic stores as Acclaim/Armada's latest action series! Chronicling the travels of four dynamic characters who "slide" to parallel dimensions of Earth, the comics will follow Quinn Mallory, Prof. Arturo, Sabrina and Rembrandt as they explore Earth 1995 as it would be if a different path had been taken either personally or historically. The Sliders miniseries will be unique in that Armada has been granted access to spectacular concepts and vicious, ongoing villains deemed unsuitable for the TV show because of budget restrictions. These will be "Slides" reflecting the continuity of the series, but only available through the comics -- making them indispensable to any fan of the TV show! Script by D.G. Chichester, with art by Dick Giordano and Mike DeCarlo. Cover by Dennis Calero. FC, 32 pgs. Cover price $2.50.
In the second part of this opening miniseries, the Sliders crew have their hands full with their new arch-enemies, the Draconian Sliders. When these blood-thirsty dictators slide, they conquer world after world with their highly advanced war machines. If Quinn, Prof. Arturo, Sabrina and Rembrandt can't disable the doomsday technology and escape the Draconian homeworld, all the parallel dimensions of Earth are in jeopardy. Script by D.G. Chichester, with art by Dick Giordano and Mike DeCarlo. Cover by Dennis Calero. FC, 32 pgs. Cover price $2.50.
