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.






First Look at The Immaculate Abortion of Dina Leigh

So here’s a little treat for a Friday afternoon. The first three penciled pages by Valia Kapadai from ‘The Immaculate Abortion of Dina Leigh’ written by Cy Dethan and lettered by Nic Wilkinson. The story stars down on his luck reporter Bob Kelsey who it seems can’t escape the occult and the supernatural no matter how far he runs.

Check out Valia’s fantastic pages below. 

The Immaculate Abortion of Dina Leigh is part of the Tales of the Forgotten anthology releasing at Thought Bubble in November.

Tales of the Forgotten – Work Starts on Cy Dethan’s ‘The Immaculate Abortion of Dina Leigh’

Despite my dictator like behavior last year towards the Tales of the Fallen creative team  last year they seem to be up for more punishment as the majority of teams will be staying on to create more stories within the Unseen Shadows in 2012/2013. First up will be a series of one shots to be released throughout 2012. The plan will be to release these titles in a digital format and then collect them all  in a printed format to be published towards the end of 2012. This will hopefully coincide with ‘Forgotten Warriors’ the sequel to Fallen Heroes, which I hope will be out this year *crosses fingers* – this second anthology will be called Tales of the Forgotten.
