So hot on the heels of the ‘Stolen’, the team working on the six page short story Fight or Flight have now wrapped up work on the project. The comic will form one of the stories in the Tales of the Forgotten anthology which is coming soon.
As the various creative teams work their hearts on the second Unseen Shadows Anthology I thought it would be as good a time as any to show off the brilliant cover as drawn by Peter Mason along with some story blurbs.
So read on!
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.
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.
