ComixCentral online Interview - Job Done

Well Chaz's live interview session at www.ComixCentral.com on Saturday was an epic session - clocking in at over 2 hours, we covered all sorts of topics, from inspiration and artistic burn-out to anarchism, mainstream aesthetics, Russian inspirations, collaborations, early comics career and much more.

It was a pleasure to be welcomed on board, and to field such diverse and intelligent questions as well.

He also didn't hold back with his views on Western ideologies, and in particular popular comics culture and the attitudes of certain readers to those who dare to deviate from what seems to be the acceptable parameters of storytelling or character design. Fenriswulf Books was never about being safe or mainstream, and Chaz's comments in this regard clearly show the mindset that's been behind this enterprise since Day 1.

You can view the whole transcript right here. 


So, if you ever wanted to know more about what makes the Fenriswulf founder tick, this is about as good a place to start

Chaz Interviewed by ComixCentral - this Saturday

Here's something a bit different: ComixCentral are running a live online interview with Chaz exclusively at their website tomorrow (Saturday 5th, 3pm PST - 8pm GMT). This is only the second one they've hosted, and the first time Chaz has done anything like this before - so who knows how well it will go! One thing's for sure, there'll be plenty of chat about comix and creativity. Look out for a link to the full article here after the event, too.

'Spilled Blood' #3: Hitting the Half-way Mark

The third issue of the Russian crime/thriller series is hotting up as it reaches page 12, the average half-way point for an issue these days...meaning we're still (technically!) on track to have it ready by the end of the year. The scripts and story arcs for the rest of the 'First Cycle' are now also finalised, and it looks to be a pretty wild ride ahead as the action and intrigue begins to fire up. #3 presents another 2 stories: Interlude in 'Constantinople', which, as the title suggests, involves a slight change of pace and personal character development; and Dissident Aggressor in which the Uzbek gets his teeth into a very tricky mob hit that even the legendary Golgo-13* would find a bit of a challenge... Pushing out of the claustrophobic, tightly-framed panels of the first 2 issues, #3 sees a lot more use of architectural drawing to help convey various visual aspects of Moscow and its environs and to help create a better sense of place.


In the meantime here's a sample of some of the (mostly) completed pages from the issue so far.

And over at ComixCentral, #1 remains on free offer all this week. Check it out now...

'Black Flag: Ultimate edition' Now Live - and Free

Our migration to ComixCentral continues! Latest pieces to go up are the classic cyberpunk horror/thriller Malaria 9 (testing the viability of CC's 'prose' category), and a brand new, revised edition of Chaz's first ever comic book, The Black Flag - featuring nearly 50 pages extra of archive material. Storyboards, sketches, cover art, roughs, scripts - they're all there, as well as a 'creator's commentary' which runs in footnotes beneath the drawn pages. It's an attempt to collate everything relating to the work, the characters, its creation and fill in some of the blanks which may still exist for the unwary reader who isn't an expert on British mythology or social history.


To celebrate, we're also offering the title for free download over the whole weekend, starting from today.

'Spilled Blood' Now live on ComixCentral

Well a lot has been happening lately with FWB online in the past week or so,,,

Chaz now has an active Twitter account (the old Facebook profile died, and Facebook refused to help fix it). You can follow  @_ChazWood_

FWB have also signed up to a new comix webstore, ComixCentral. The site offers creators a 90% royalty and items can be offered for sale, much like Amazon's KDP. As a result we now have a fledgling store there, Fenriswulf Comix, and our first item is Issue #1 of Spilled Blood - which is currently on special offer for free. Given the higher royalty rate, we can charge less per issue, so watch this space for further products and promotions to come.


This is a very exciting time for FWB as we're now gathering an audience and following in the online comics community and also finding a more appropriate marketplace for our comix creations.

'Spilled Blood' Issue #3 Flows On


Work on Issue #3 continues unabated - here's a sample page from the conclusion of Interlude in 'Constantinople', wherein the Uzbek and Sonya take a breather, and dark plots are hatched which will ultimately drive the First Cycle of stories to their apocalyptic conclusion.

Meanwhile the following story, Dissident Aggressor, is well underway, making Issue #3 almost half-way complete already. Perhaps it will be ready before the end of the year after all...!
