Unseen Shadows Release Special Preview of its First Full Length Graphic Novel Blood Cries Out.
In honour of the second year of the newest UK convention on the block, The London Super Comic Con, the Unseen Shadows creative team have decided to do something special to celebrate their attendance.
The team working on the Unseen Shadow’s first full length graphic novel ‘Blood Cries Out’ are giving readers a special peek behind the curtain with an online four-page preview. Visitors to the Unseen Shadows table (C42) during the convention will also be treated to a closer look at Blood Cries out as well as several other projects in development.
Blood Cries Out is centred on Jonathan Bishop, a relentless vigilante known as ‘The Reverend’. The character made his comic debut in the one shot story Wrath of God written by Cy Dethan with art by Steve Penfold, colours by Gat Melvyn and lettering by Nic Wilkinson. The same creative team have reunited to work on Blood Cries Out.
‘The difference between Wrath of God and Blood Cries Out is significant. Where as Wrath of God was a creation story, this has the potential to be the character’s swan song. Threats so significant and original that not only do they threaten John Bishop physically but threaten to destroy the faith that drives him. Heightened emotion and fundamental questions about humanity go hand in hand with high-octane action sequences and threats from other dimensions. Who wouldn’t love to draw that? Myself and Gat will work hard to bring Cy Dethan’s vision of Barry Nugent’s character to life. We hope it lives up to it’s potential.’ – Steve Penfold
The 88 page graphic novel, to be launched later in the year, will reveal a different side to Bishop as he meets his match in this tale of faith, cults, secret societies and the supernatural.
Barry will be manning the Unseen Shadows table at the London Super Comic Con. ‘I’m looking forward to catching up with some of the other members of the creative team who will in attendance and chatting about Unseen Shadows to visitors at the convention.”
The Unseen Shadows table is located at C42 on the convention floor.
About Blood Cries Out
Reverend Jonathan Bishop is a weapon forged by fate and the cruelties of men, his life an endless crusade waged in shadow and blood. He is a one-man holy war, but he is not the first product of the machinery that created him.
When the twisted Broken Heart cult seeks to conjure and enslave a force they are ill-equipped to control, Bishop must face a custom-built killer who knows him as only a brother can. The Reverend has finally met his equal in battle, and faith alone may no longer sustain him.
About Unseen Shadows
Unseen Shadows Ltd is dedicated to expanding the world and characters created in Fallen Heroes through various transmedia elements. Currently in development are several more comic titles, a five part audio drama, a comic adaption of the Fallen Heroes novel, a live action web series and more.
“These are not just nice little side stories with no impact on the events surrounding them,” Barry Nugent, the found of Unseen Shadows explains. “The spin-offs expand and enhance the characters lives and relationships within the novels. It was important to me that the spin offs can be read, watched and listened to independently of each other and the novels but you will get more insights into the characters by experiencing everything the Unseen Shadows universe has to offer.”
