How can we end Friday with a bang? Well how about the next teaser poster for Tales of the Forgotten?
Today’s, second of four, teaser posters takes us into the shadowy world of master criminal Ben Ashodi aka ‘The Hand’ in the story Stolen written by Corey Brotherson, with art by Cormac Hughes, colours by Vicky Stonebridge and lettering by Paul Mclaren.
Stealth, skills and style – the life of Ben Ashodi, AKA The Hand, is one hell of a ride. A talented escape artist and professional thief for hire, The Hand teeters on a precarious high wire, balanced between a career of criminality and a strong sense of morals.
Although when responsibility over his past actions catch up with him, it soon becomes clear there are some things even this master escapologist cannot get away from…
“Having read Fallen Heroes and loving the characters, it seemed strange at first to delve into the moralist thievery that is Ben Ashodi/The Hand’s life… but, as it turned out, Ben was soon guiding me. Barry’s character is so well defined and likeable, it’s impossible not to get caught up in his worldview. And once you’re looking through those hi-tech goggles of his, everything becomes clear. Writing Stolen became less of me trying to interpret the character, and more the character unearthing one of his old adventures, revealing its violent intricacies through keyboard strokes and pencil lines.
Stolen is a story about things being taken from others. Loss and absence. Through it, we see items, loved ones, time, opportunity, dignity and even someone’s future all snatched away – and from that we see how these things drive the characters to their (sometimes regretful) actions” – Corey Brotherson
