Bob Kesley Investigates: Killing the Soul Coming Soon

When last we saw Bob Kelsey he was making a debut in his new web comic series – Bob Kelsey Investigates, with his first story ‘Neck on the Line’. I’m happy to announce that not only will Bob be returning in a new adventure entitled ‘Killing the Soul’ but that the pencils for the comic have already been done and both the inking and the lettering will be under way soon. This tale of murder and the supernatural (what else would Bob be caught in?) has been penned by Richmond Clements with Roy Huteson Stewart on the pens and Paul Maclaren on the pencils (they sound a little like a band now).

So while your waiting for the band to put their latest artistic composition together here’s a look at the first page of Bob Kelsey Investigates: Killing the Soul.

More info soon and remember you can check out Kelsey’s first webcomic ‘Bob Kesley Investigates:Neck on the Line’ for free and his previous adventure The Immaculate Abortion of Dina Leigh  by Cy Dethan (Writer), Valia Kapadai, (Art), Nic Wilkinson(Lettering) is on sale in digital format on Comicsy or as part of the Tales of the Forgotten anthology.

Unseen Shadows: Tales of the Fallen – Character Posters by Steve Penfold

Check out these awesome poster images of the stars of the spin off comics which will form the Tales of the Fallen anthology. The posters were drawn by Steve Penfold, the artist on Fallen Heroes comic adaptation and The Reverend:Wrath of God spin off comic.

I had no idea Steve had done these images and I’ve only just seen them and I’m still trying to put into words what seeing these and all the other pieces of art that  is starting to come through means to me. I’m excited, scared,inspired and most of the time just plain humbled by the wealth of talent working on these projects. I am a very lucky writer.

Stunned just stunned.
