Denver, CO, October 10, 2006 --( Savvy webcomics readers may have heard of Grounded Angel before. It was the most popular webcomic at Komikwerks for its entire existence.

Grounded Angel is created by Steve Horton (STRONGARM from Image), Johnny Lowe (JUDO GIRL from Alias) and Vivi Erlanita (GROUNDED ANGEL is her major debut!).

"When I began editing Graphic Smash earlier this fall, I made it my immediate mission to get some really great manga on the site, and Grounded Angel is just that," says Tim Demeter, editor of Graphic Smash.

"Steve and co. have a fantastic comic going here, that I feel will appeal to existing Graphic Smash readers, and attract new ones as well. Like all of our new debuts this fall, Grounded Angel is a completely free read, so you have no excuses not to give it read. You'll be glad you did."
