Last week I hit the send button on my computer sending the final print file of Blood Cries Out off to the printer (waves at Rich). This almost brings to a close a comic that has been six years in development. Now myself and the BCO creative team are sitting and waiting for the print run to drop at my door. I say sitting, I’m busy working away on a few more goodies that will be coming with me to the Blood Cries Out launch at the Thought Bubble Comic Festival.
If you’ve been following the site you will know that we have now opened up pre-orders for Blood Cries Out . We’ve started to get some pre-orders in so if you want to secure your copy head over to this link. And remember all pre-orders will come with a free digital comic.
If you’re interested in getting yourself a copy but are not attending Thought Bubble then you can pre-order one of the twenty copies that have been set aside. They are starting to go so get in there if you want one.
Here’s a sneak peek at our pull up banner (kitchen not included).
And if you going to Thought Bubble you can find us in the Comixology Originals Hall on Table 118.
Always love giving updates on Unseen Shadows Projects but I love it even more when it’s good news. As it currently stands all the inking has been done for Blood Cries Out by Conor, who had been working like an artistic demon to get all the art finished. On the lettering front and Nic has lettered all the inked pages some last minute touches and of course added all of that onto the colour pages when they are complete.
I am beyond happy with the final results. Both Conor and Nic have now dropped some full colour finished pages in the dropbox folder for our team and they look spectacular and yes I know I’m being bias…but they look so pretty!
The plan is to open up the pre-order gates for Blood Cries Out on 1st October. Anyone interested will be able to either pre order for delivery via Royal Mail or pick up their pre-ordered copy at Thought Bubble 2019 . There will be a little something for all those who pre-order a copy but more on that soon.
In the mean time here is a sneak peek at the back cover (the front cover is being worked on as I type) and another inked page.
Next week there will be a full colour teaser to get the old pre-order juices flowing.
So it’s been a while but Unseen Shadows never goes away, we linger in the…well…um…shadows.
Unseen Shadows will be heading to the Thought Bubble Comic Festival in Leeds this weekend and we will not be going empty handed. We will be launching two comics (Knights of Cademus and The Lament of Lady Mary) at the festival and our very first graphic novel ‘The Heart Which Makes Us’, which clocks in at a lovely 100 pages.
As well as the new comics we will also be launching the recently completed audio movie (which is one part prose,one part audio movie and about ten parts adventure!) Empire of Blood. The first three episodes of this four part audio movie are available to listen online for free.
As well as all this you will also be able to pick up the Fallen Heroes novel and the comic anthology Tales of the Forgotten.
Barry Nugent, founder of Unseen Shadows had this to say about the launches. “I am extremely proud of what the creative teams have done on these projects and looking forward to spending the weekend showing off their work.”
All the comics being launched at Thought Bubble are available to pre-order here.
I also was a guest on the Awesome Comics Podcast recently to talk about the project.
The Unseen Shadows team will be on table 71 in the Thought Bubble Marquee (aka the Teepee) so come and check us out!
Work has now begun on issue two of the Reverend graphic novel ‘Blood Cries out’ and here’s a panel to prove it.
As you can see from the finished page from issue 1 below the blood isn’t about to stop crying anytime soon thanks to old Rev showing his usual degree of restraint when dealing with the bad guys.
Visitors to the next weekend’s Thought Bubble Festival will be able to get a sneak peek at the first chapter. All you need to do is swing by Cy Dethan and Nic Wilkinson’s table (121 in New Dock Hall)where they will have a preview of Blood Cries Out – chapter 1 at their table. They will also have some of their other great comics for you to check out. I will also be wandering the con with my Ipad and a shed load of Unseen Shadows material and will be hovering around Cy and Nic’s table from time to time so come and find us.
