I guess thatís what books do. Take you places. Inside and out. Move you. Inside. And out. You are at a different place after you read the book than you were before you read it. In many ways you are a different person as well. - The Alchemy #3

From Comicon.com's interview with White Tiger co-writer Tamora Pierce:
THE PULSE: How's the collaboration process going so far with the artists and editors?

PIERCE: David Mackís covers have been...breath-taking. Not always our ideas for covers, but thatís the whole point of having different writers and artists (even if I could draw, which I canít): a good artist brings a very different perspective to the story.

From ComicBookResources.com's interview with White Tiger miniseries writer Tamora Pierce:
Writing "White Tiger" has many perks for Pierce. Not only does she get to write a strong, kick-ass Marvel heroine, but she gets to work with artist David Mack who is doing character designs on the book and provides the covers for the mini-series. "As a writer, I'm in awe of artists-- I can't even draw," Pierce said. "To watch someone like Mack work, and turn ideas into images, is one of the main reasons I always wanted to do comics and one of the reasons I always loved comics. Tim's a little more cool about words-into-images, coming from an early film background, but he's still pretty jacked about this process, too.

"Mack's strong, painterly approach really grabs me in the gut: he knows how to create strong visuals that jump out of the array on a magazine stand and shriek, 'What are you looking at those for? Look at me!'" Pierce continued. "His covers will tell the world that Angela's White Tiger is significantly different from any other White Tiger."

According to ComicBookResources.com, the White Tiger miniseries will be six issues and debut in August 2006.

From Newsarama.com:
Friday afternoon Marvel issued a Press Release announcing Young Readers Fantasy author Tamora Pierce has signed an exclusive deal with Marvel and will write an upcoming White Tiger limited series with covers and character designs by David Mack.
Below is the press release for the series:
Tamora Pierce, author of over twenty novels and self-proclaimed "geek", has signed an exclusive deal with Marvel Comics.

Best known for her breaking of the male warrior fantasy mold, Pierce has made solid, action-packed adventures for young female readers a reality. Her books have captured the imagination of lovers of the fantastic across the world and rung interesting changes on the classic tales of the hero's journey.

Her fiction titles include ALANNA: THE FIRST ADVENTURE, WILD MAGIC, LADY KNIGHT, STREET MAGIC, TRICKSTER'S QUEEN, THE WILL OF THE EMPRESS, and this fall's TERRIER.

Growing up in Rural Pennsylvania, the proud-to-be-a-hillbilly Pierce devoured fantasy and science fiction novels at a rapid pace, digesting what they offered and then constructing her own worlds of wonder. Encouraged by her father, Pierce dove into writing and strived to correct what she saw as the genre's greatest flaw: the lack of strong female warriors.

Now, she brings her unique voice to the House of Ideas, industry leader Marvel Comics, where she will have access to one of the most finely-tuned fictional universes of all.

"To say that having Tamora at Marvel is a coup for us is to make a pointed understatement," says Marvel Publisher Dan Buckley. "Her name is synonymous with female-oriented fantasy literature, her works bestsellers, and her fans devoted and illuminated. That she was willing to sit down with us, listen to what we had to offer, is one of the best things that has happened on my watch at Marvel. Tamoraís vision of what fantasy and science fiction can aspire to is nothing short of ground-breaking, and what we look forward to her producing with the House of Ideas is really and truly something to look forward to."

"Her first project will be WHITE TIGER. Tamoraís going to revisit the concept, linking it to the original Tiger and creating a new female hero with street smarts, guts, and a whole lotta obsession. I hope all Marvel fans will take a look and join us on this new adventure."

"Working with Marvel is the realization of one of my longest-held dreams," says Pierce. "The first believable kick-butt female heroes I ever encountered were Marvel Comics 1970s Colleen Wing and Misty Knight. Ever since reading the Daughters of the Dragon and discovering how powerful a good female comic hero could be, I've wanted to try my hand at creating for Marvel. Working with my Marvel editor, Ruwan Jayatilleke, I've become convinced that White Tiger is going to very seriously rock!"

WHITE TIGER, as introduced in Brian Michael Bendisí celebrated DAREDEVIL run, is getting some artistic love, as well. Legendary artist David Mack will be providing painted covers for the series as well as creating the character designs. "I had a blast redesigning the White Tiger character," says Mack. "One of the charms of working on a Marvel project is the spirit of collaboration involved. I loved working with George Perezí previous design, and with the suggestions of Tammy and Joe Quesada to make the covers to this series something unique and very special." To see more of Mackís designs and work, be sure to visit http://www.davidmack.com.

Pierce will be joined in the White Tiger script writing by her husband, web designer and former Video magazine writer and Computer Game Entertainment editor Tim Liebe. While Liebe is co-writing episodes 3 and 4 of the arc, he and Pierce have worked together on the plot from the beginning to make the story as taut and action-packed as Pierce's books.

"You don't talk about how a person learns to be a superhero," says Pierce. "You have to show her learning how to do it. Most of the time, the price of that learning involves a lot of bruises on somebody."
