First Two Pages from Unseen Shadows: Fight or Flight are Revealed

So here’s the first two inked pages (colour still to be added) of the six page comic Fight of Flight from the pen of Jorge Oliveira. The story, written by Corey Brotherson and lettered by Paul Mclaren is centered around the earlier exploits of Icarus Investigator Victoria Sullivan, who was first introduced in the audio drama ‘Empire of Blood‘ and voiced by Fiona Paul. Obviously we hope Fight or Flight will appeal to fans of the audio drama but if you’ve never listened to an episode before then you need not worry as this story is a standalone adventure.

Fight or Flight will be a little extra that we’ll adding to the second Unseen Shadows comic anthology Tales of the Forgotten which is coming soon.

Fight or Flight: Spin off Comic from ‘Empire of Blood’ Audio Drama Announced

Anyone who has listened to the first two episodes of audio drama Empire of Blood will already be aware of the feisty Icarus Foundation investigator Victoria Sullivan. In Empire of Blood Victoria teams up with her fellow investigator Vincent Marconi to solve five horrific murders.

Originally Victoria was only supposed to be in the audio drama but I loved  the character so much and Fiona Paul’s brilliant performance as Victoria that I  began to think of more ways to use the character. The result of this was a conversation with writer Corey Brotherson, who is currently working on the Unseen Shadows one shot comic Stolen. Together we came up with an idea of doing a six page comic ,starring Victoria, which would be an origin story.

The story is called Fight or Flight and the hope is that the comic will be ready to launch alongside the final episode of Empire of Blood, when we will make the whole story available on a CD as well as here on the website. A synopsis is coming soon but to get you going here’s a sketch of a young and adult Victoria by the Artist on the project Jorge Oliveira.

‘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…
