Bob Kelsey Investigates: ‘The Immaculate Abortion of Dina Leigh’ Free For a Day On Free Comic Book Day

Seeing as we are celebrating Free Comic Book Day with the launch of the Bob Kelsey Investigates Web Comic we thought we would give you an extra surprise. To really get you immersed in Kelsey’s world we have decided that for the duration of Free Comic Book Day (4th May) to give away a free digital download of his first adventure outside of the Fallen Heroes novel The Immaculate Abortion of Dina Leigh. The 22 page comic was written by Cy Dethan, with art by Valia Kapadai and letters by Nic Wilkinson. In many ways if Bob Kesley Investigates: was a TV series then The Immaculate Abortion of Dina Leigh would be the feature length pilot episode. The great thing about this comic and the first Bob Kelsey Investigates tale ‘Neck on the Line’ is it doesn’t matter which one you read first. A pdf  of the comic will be available to download for one day only so don’t miss out tomorrow when the links go live!

In the meantime here’s  the synopsis, cover and a 4 page preview.

The Truth makes liars of us all. The Truth will kill you, or get you killed. It’ll steal your marriage and your daughter’s love. The Truth will get you shot and left for dead in the desert…

So when a woman tells you she woke up in a bathtub full of blood and ice with stitches in her belly that she can’t explain, you’ll know it’s the Truth because nothing else smells or feels or hurts that bad – and you’ll fall for it all over again, even though you know you were lucky before and it’ll burn you even worse this time.

This, then, is the story of The Immaculate Abortion of Dina Leigh – and I’m daring you to call me a liar…

“Bob Kelsey is an everyman in a world populated with monsters and heroes. To survive in those hunting grounds takes the self-preservation instincts of a feral rat. That’s what Bob Kelsey is to me.” – Cy Dethan.

Blood Cries Out Page 14: First Look at the Reverend

So in case you thought the team working on Blood Cries Out have been sitting on their thumbs doing nothing I thought I’d drop by to shatter that illusion. The problem is the pages after our last preview are pretty spoiler heavy (but boy are they stunning) so we wanted to wait to get to a spot where we could give you something to look at which wouldn’t spoil the story. To that end here, for your viewing pleasure, is not only our first look at the Reverend but also a nice big hint of which Fallen Heroes alumni will be sharing some panel time with our holy weapon of god.

Hopefully we’ll be able to show off this panel in full colour courtesy of Gat soon but I’m sure you agree that Cy,Nic and Steve have done some stunning work on this page. If you’ve not checked out the Blood Cries Out preview then here’s the link to the PDF.

A SPECIAL LONDON SUPER COMIC CON PREVIEW FOR BLOOD CRIES OUT

 

Unseen Shadows Release Special Preview of its First Full Length Graphic Novel Blood Cries Out.

In honour of the second year of the newest UK convention on the block, The London Super Comic Con, the Unseen Shadows creative team have decided to do something special to celebrate their attendance.

The team working on the Unseen Shadow’s first full length graphic novel ‘Blood Cries Out’ are giving readers a special peek behind the curtain with an online four-page preview. Visitors to the Unseen Shadows table (C42) during the convention will also be treated to a closer look at Blood Cries out as well as several other projects in development.

DOWNLOAD THE 4 PAGE PREVIEW LSCC PREVIEW PDF

Blood Cries Out is centred on Jonathan Bishop, a relentless vigilante known as ‘The Reverend’. The character made his comic debut in the one shot story Wrath of God written by Cy Dethan with art by Steve Penfold, colours by Gat Melvyn and lettering by Nic Wilkinson. The same creative team have reunited to work on Blood Cries Out.

‘The difference between Wrath of God and Blood Cries Out is significant. Where as Wrath of God was a creation story, this has the potential to be the character’s swan song. Threats so significant and original that not only do they threaten John Bishop physically but threaten to destroy the faith that drives him. Heightened emotion and fundamental questions about humanity go hand in hand with high-octane action sequences and threats from other dimensions. Who wouldn’t love to draw that? Myself and Gat will work hard to bring Cy Dethan’s vision of Barry Nugent’s character to life. We hope it lives up to it’s potential.’ – Steve Penfold

The 88 page graphic novel, to be launched later in the year, will reveal a different side to Bishop as he meets his match in this tale of faith, cults, secret societies and the supernatural.

Barry will be manning the Unseen Shadows table at the London Super Comic Con. ‘I’m looking forward to catching up with some of the other members of the creative team who will in attendance and chatting about Unseen Shadows to visitors at the convention.”

The Unseen Shadows table is located at C42 on the convention floor.

About Blood Cries Out

Reverend Jonathan Bishop is a weapon forged by fate and the cruelties of men, his life an endless crusade waged in shadow and blood. He is a one-man holy war, but he is not the first product of the machinery that created him.

 

When the twisted Broken Heart cult seeks to conjure and enslave a force they are ill-equipped to control, Bishop must face a custom-built killer who knows him as only a brother can. The Reverend has finally met his equal in battle, and faith alone may no longer sustain him.

About Unseen Shadows

Unseen Shadows Ltd is dedicated to expanding the world and characters created in Fallen Heroes through various transmedia elements. Currently in development are several more comic titles, a five part audio drama, a comic adaption of the Fallen Heroes novel,  a live action web series and more.

“These are not just nice little side stories with no impact on the events surrounding them,” Barry Nugent, the found of Unseen Shadows explains. “The spin-offs expand and enhance the characters lives and relationships within the novels. It was important to me that the spin offs can be read, watched and listened to independently of each other and the novels but you will get more insights into the characters by experiencing everything the Unseen Shadows universe has to offer.”
