'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...!

'Spilled Blood' Issue 2 Sample pages

Issue 2 is now live on Amazon's digital Kindle marketplace and available for download.

Herewith we present a few sample pages from the new issue - showing something of a shift, we think, in drawing style towards a grittier and more realistic edge:

page 5

page 13

page 18
The issue contains 2 stories - the dark and bloody slaughter-fest 'The 7 Churches of Asia', followed by its epilogue, 'Black Knight, White King', in which Colonel Maxim makes his first appearance, setting up the next phase in the epic story arc which develops throughout the rest of the First Cycle of episodes.

Kindle readers can pick up their copies by following the appropriate links below:

'Spilled Blood' Issue 2 - Completed!

Thanks to a large amount of holiday time, Chaz has succeeded in blasting through over a dozen pages of comic art in the past few weeks to finish off Issue 2 of the Russian crime/thriller series.

The action really fires up in this one and readers are also introduced to the Uzbek's new nemesis - Colonel Maxim - whose dogged pursuit of our anti-hero will shape the rest of the first cycle of stories, all the way to an apocalyptic climax.

Here's a couple of previews of Maxim in his uncoloured form both finished inks and original rough sketches:

The Amazon Kindle version will be out soon, once the first print copies have been received and approved later this week. Issue 3 is now in production and we expect to have all 3 ready for Deecon in April 2018.
