In staying true to their motto of “Pop Culture IS Our Culture,” Devil’s Due Publishing, one of the top ten comic book publishers in North America — located right here in Chicago — is heating things up this summer with new announcements, partnerships, and DDP POP — their own line of toys and usable artwork. The last time I spoke with DDP’s president, Josh Blaylock, he clued me in to some of their upcoming projects including his own pet project that comes out this Wednesday, Mercy Sparx, a Devil-Girl hired by the bigshots in Heaven to secretly take down rogue angels. Pretty hot huh?!
At the recent San Diego Comic Convention, they announced a partnership with Kevin Spacey. Well kind of.

So thats right folks, you too can be the next Stan Lee!
