One of our upcoming projects is comic Ashfall, the story of how demon stalker Napoleon Stone took down his mentor and friend Nathan Ash.
It’s a pretty brutal story from Dan Thompson. Full of violence and sorrow, the book takes unflinching look at how extreme circumstances can change and shape a person.
We’ve got the first lettered page of it here for you to feast your eyes upon. The pencils from Paul Williams are really stunning. We are very proud of this book.
Stay tuned for more exclusive updates from our latest comic!
One of our upcoming titles Ashfall is now under way and we have an exclusive sneak peek at a page from this book.
Written by Dan Thompson, with artwork by Paul Williams, colour from Darren Brown and letters from Paul Mclaren, this comic is going to be a scorcher.
The story follows hero Napoleon ‘Demon Stalker’ Stone as he hunts down his former mentor and friend Nathan Ash.
While being tasked to take Ash down Napoleon reflects on a previous mission with his friend, we get a glimpse into the workings of these two damaged men. Is Stone really going to be able to take out the man who helped train him up?
This is a story with heart and great sacrifice, what price does following orders blindly have? And how did Napoleon Stone become the badass demon killing machine we see in Fallen Heroes? This book gives us some answers.

Last year we launched the first story in the Unseen Shadows webcomic entitled ‘Bob Kelsey Investigates’ featuring our cynical reporter Bob Kelsey and his mis-adventures through the shadowy world of the occult and the supernatural. The first story entitled Neck on the Line is still available to read online here. Soon after ‘Neck on the Line’ story went live another two scripts went into development the first of which will be hitting the website next week.
‘The Return’ is written by Dan Thompson with art and lettering by Jake Rowlingson. In this one page story we see Bob Kelsey, who has faced all manner of dangers both human and otherwise, now facing possibly his greatest adversary to date.
You will be able to check out the story here for free next week. If, in the mean time, you would check out Bob’s other adventures you can of course read ‘Neck on the Line’ or The Immaculate Abortion of Dina Leigh which you can pick up on it’s own from Comicsy (Digital Download) and Amazon (Kindle) or as part of the Tales of the Forgotten Anthology also available from Comicsy and Amazon.
To read Bob’s very first appearance there is of course the novel Fallen Heroes, where it all started.
So it’s been a since we had an update for Ashfall which stars Napoleon Stone and his mentor Nathan Ash so I reckon it was about time for one and it’s a biggie. I’m using this post to welcome Darren Brown to the team who will be handling the colours for the project to complement Peter Mason’s (Cancertown 2) art and Paul Mclaren’s lettering. As part of his welcome to the Ashfall creative team Darren has provided us with a full colour page 1 for everyone to enjoy.
In case you’ve forgotten here is the blurb for Ashfall which is written by Dan Thompson (Band of Butchers)
