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.

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