What is Tales of the Fallen about?
Tales of the Fallen,is a throwback to the hero pulps of old, weaving four tales of high adventure, vengeance, mayhem and magic but all with a modern day spin. The collection is stand alone so you do not need to have read the novel to enjoy the comic, of course there is some extra value to be gained if the book has been read first.
The anthology of four stories explore the history surrounding several characters within the Fallen Heroes novel and are by some of today’s brightest and best indie comic creators. The creative team on the project included Cy Dethan, Richmond Clements, Dan Thompson, Pete Rogers, Rob Carey, Roy Huteson Stewart Conor Boyle, Vicky Stonebridge, Nic Wilkinson, Steve Penfold, Paul Mclaren Gat Melvyn and Valia Kapadai.
One member of the creative team that is keen to stress that the target audience for the anthology is not limited to readers of the novel is Fallen Heroes author Barry Nugent.
“Tales of the Fallen can be picked up and enjoyed without having read a single page of the novel,” promises Barry. “I guess it could be viewed as a introduction to Fallen Heroes or give those who have already read the book a deeper understanding of the characters and some of the situations only hinted at in the book.”
Cy Dethan, writer of the acclaimed Cancertown, Slaughterman’s Creed and more recently White Knuckle reveals what readers can expect from the anthology “The book is a collection of “expanded universe” stories and range from high-powered adventure to all-out slaughter and the credits list reads like a who’s who of guys I’ve been dying to share page space with for years..”
