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.
Of course if you’re of a literary bent and want to check out the very first appearance of the reporter with the world’s worst luck then check out the novel Fallen Heroes.
As you know long time Unseen Shadows fans will know Fragments of Fate the story starring Napoleon Stone (who graces the cover of the Fallen Heroes novel) featured in the first anthology we launched Tales of the Fallen. Originally the tale was released in Black and White. Well I’m pleased to announce that secretly the Fragments of Fate creative team have been working to produce an all colour edition of Fragments of Fate which will be available soon in a digital format. As well as the full colour there will also a whole new cover and few other little changes that those of you who are eagle eyed and have read the previous edition will be able to spot.To those of you who already own the previous edition I’m trying to work out a way to enable you lot to have this version at no extra charge!
To whet your appetite here’s a look at the new 100% pulp adventure cover(just awaiting titles) by Darren Brown and the first five pages in low res to enjoy! Fans of the original cover by Valia Kapadai have no fear as that will be included as a pin up with this version.
Mythical artifacts tied to an ancient legend. A demonic cult obsessed with determining destiny. Professor Napoleon Stone’s latest research project is about to take him on a dark and perilous journey into the unknown. Beaten, broken, terrorised and tortured. It’s time to discover what’s worse, being haunted by your past? Or being tormented by your future?
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.
Time to celebrate the end of a long week with the fourth and final of our Tales of the Forgotten teaser posters.
A little while back we showed off some pencils for this tale featuring down on his luck reporter Bob Kelsey. Now we bring you some shiny new art which includes the cover and a four page preview.
