First Look at ‘The Heart Which Makes Us’

Here’s the first look at the new Kathryn Monroe story entitled The heart which Makes us written by Lizzie Boyle with art by Aaron Moran and lettering by Paul Mclaren.

In her last outing we saw Kathryn at the top of here game as a seasoned TORCH operative in Historia. This time we get to see Kathryn at the beginning of her journey, just starting out at TORCH and becoming embroiled in a child abduction case that she gets a little too close to. This is also the first Unseen Shadows comic to feature Luther Washington, TORCH’s top agents and another main character from the  Fallen Heroes novel

I think Lizzie has done a fantastic job in capturing both Kathryn and Luther and Aaron’s art lends a further layer of atmosphere and grittiness to the story. Just take a look at this stunning page to see what  mean.


Kathryn Monroe will Return in ‘The Heart Which Makes Us’


Kathryn Monroe Sketch from Historia

Been a little while since we’ve had some updates on the Unseen Shadows website but that is about to change as we have a load of news to tell you. Look out for more posts this week but to begin with we give a long overdue welcome to writer Lizzie Boyle who joins the Unseen Shadows world.

Some of you may already know Lizzie from her work over at  Disconnected Press. After reading Fallen Novels Lizzie came at me with a fantastic idea for a story on Kathryn Monroe, who we saw recently solving a high profile murder in Historia. In this new story ‘The Heart Which Makes Us‘ we get to see a younger and less disciplined Kathryn tackling her first big case. In many ways this almost feels like ‘Monroe Begins’ as a lot of the groundwork in the story sets up who Kathryn will will become. The story also gives us the first appearance in a Unseen Shadows title of fellow Torch Operative Luther Washington. Those of you who have read the novel will know how much of a big role Luther’s plays so it’s great to see him making his first appearance outside of Fallen Heroes.

The script is now finished (and yes it is all kinds of awesome) and Lizzie and I are currently on the hunt for an artist to take on the story. More news as we have it.
