Keep Calm and Talk to the Hand

With all the titles for the second anthology well under way I should be able to keep bringing you some sneak peeks of the art as we move closer and closer to the November launch. So without further ado here’s a look at Ben Ashodi aka ‘The Hand’ in ‘Stolen’ as drawn by Cormac Hughes. As you can see he’s taking a leaf out of Batman’s book and surveying his city from on high. In the case of ‘The Hand’ it’s London rather than Gotham where he hangs his mask.

I’ll drop an all new inked page from Stolen on you later in the week.

‘Stolen’ Finds it’s Artist

So earlier this week I announced the fifth comic spin off from the Unseen Shadows universe would be called Stolen, centered on master criminal The Hand and written by Corey Brotherson. The lettering would be handled by the deft hands of Paul Mclaren.

I’m now happy to reveal that Cormac Hughes will be taking on the art duties for this project.

We will now be looking for a colorist to complete team but work is already moving forward on both the script and the art. In the meantime here’s a little taster from Cormac of what you can expect.

‘The Hand’ Spin off Comic in the Works

I’m very pleased to announced that I’ve given the go ahead for another Unseen Shadows comic to be created. The comic will be written by Corey Brotherson the writer of the fantastic Magic of Myths and will center on master thief Ben Ashodi aka The Hand introduced in the Fallen Heroes novel and issue 1 of the comic adaptation.

I read Coreys’ pitch over the weekend and like all the other writers on this project I was both excited and a little scared by how well he knew my characters.

Corey’s now gearing up to start work on the script and then we will start the hunt for an art team. Paul Mclaren has already agreed to take on the lettering duties on this project, which is great news.

More news soon but to whet your appetite here’s the blurb for the comic.

The Hand – Stolen

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…
