Work on The Chimera Factor graphic novel continues a pace. Here’s some character sketches of Steph and her team from artist Pete Woods. This is quite exciting for me as this story is set in between the Fallen Heroes and Forgotten Warriors novel (yes I am still writing the second novel) so several of the character will be popping up in Forgotten Warriors.
More updates soon but for now enjoy the images.
Well the last time we saw Steph in a meeting like this she was about to head off on Operation Solomon. This time around the stakes are even higher. This page also shows off United Nations Secretary General Jane Morton who is hosting the meeting. Morton puts in an appearance in the Fallen Heroes novel but this is her first comic outing.
Check out this first look at Pete Woods pencils for page 8 of The Chimera Factor.
Here’s some more of Pete Woods character sketches from The Chimera Factor to get your teeth into.
Keep em coming Pete!
So over the last few weeks we’ve been launching digital versions of the Unseen Shadows comics on Comixology. Well today sees our last launch for a little while and it’s a biggie.
The Heart Which Makes Us is our first full blown graphic novel which features the fantastic talents of Lizzie Boyle, Aaron Moran and Paul Mclaren. to put my salesman hat for a moment I’m calling this thriller Sherlock meets Prime Suspect by way of Broadchurch.
Investigator Kathryn Monroe starts a new job at major crimes agency TORCH. A suspect is interviewed in a child abduction case. A series of terror attacks strike London. Kathryn follows the trail…
I’m a sucker for CSI. And Thomas Harris novels. And Sherlock Holmes (any rendering). If there’s a problem that can be solved by science, deduction and reasoning, then bring it on. Kathryn Monroe is the queen of that stuff. – Lizzie Boyle
This standalone tale is a cracking tale of kidnapping, murder, greed and obsession. So check it out over on Comixology and let us know what you think! You can also pick up a print version of the graphic novel here.
You can also check out Kathryn in the comic one short – Historia which is also on Comixology.
And don’t forget to check all the other Unseen Shadows titles on Comixology.
Here’s a little preview of The Heart Which Makes Us to get those comic juices flowing.
So, at the moment, The Chimera Factor creative team are working hard to really nail down the look of the characters before moving on with the next set of pages.
It’s been an interesting and collaborative process (god bless you facebook messenger) with Richmond Clements(the writer) and Pete Woods (the artist). It’s a great feeling seeing the evolution of each character’s look especially those who have come directly from Fallen Heroes through to this graphic novel. Anyway here’s a look at some of the designs.
