'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.

Another Top Review for 'The Black Flag'

We're not sure why, but recent interest in Chaz's first ever full-length comic book is still on the rise - with a brand new 5-star review on Amazon.com. More than a mere review, it's a very detailed and thoroughly accurate critique of the whole work, which shows excellent understanding and appreciation of the tangled themes and plotlines. We're always very pleased and flattered when anybody takes the time to write about something we've created, whether positively or with mixed feelings - but this is by far the most remarkable to date.

Despite being a flawed first attempt at producing adult comic work, and with a troubled and sporadic 5-year creation cycle, we're still pleased to have the 'Black Flag' out there as an example of following an idea, a vision, and creating a single body of work purely for the love and desire of doing so. Many thanks to Hedy for her valued words and for keeping the interest alive.

'Spilled Blood' Issue 2 Preview

Presenting the cover artwork for the in-progress and forthcoming issue 2 of the Russian crime series, depicting the unnamed hitman in a pose from the first story in the issue, The 7 Churches of Asia. Painted up in acrylics in the New Year as part of a class self portrait exercise, it's Chaz's most ambitious work in paint to date:


All going well, the new issue ought to be ready before the autumn - while the previous is still available online here.

Makeover for 'Maranatha'

Last week Chaz decided that the first Fenriswulf title ever released - Maranatha, first book in the Trinity Chronicles series - could do with a bit of a makeover. Out went the old cartoonish character montage (which was as good as it could have been at the time - 6 years ago) and in with something a bit darker, more contemporary, but also in keeping with the deeper themes and ideas of the book, while retaining the original typefaces and logo design.


Scary to think the original FWB paperback edition was published almost 9 years ago!

The Amazon Kindle edition is, of course, still available right here.

Appreciation for 'The Black Flag'

Nice to see that our first ever Amazon Kindle comic release, 'The Black Flag', has picked up a good review over at Amazon.com. For such a profoundly British piece of work, it's great that overseas readers can appreciate some of its arguments and storylines too.And hey, the bigger issues of political independence, nationalism and repressive fascistic governments has never been more in the news...for a book conceived and begun almost exactly 17 years ago, Georgina's time is far from past.


 The front cover has also taken a bit of a redesign to emphasize her Celtic war-paint.

'Angel of Vengeance' Book 4 Hits Amazon


Cover art, finally utilising the original concept sketch of Aldaraia
An extended Xmas break allowed us to complete the 4th installment in the Angel of Vengeance adult supernatural series, and it's now available for download exclusively on Amazon.

To celebrate this, and 2017, we're also offering the title for free from the 22nd-26th January. Grab a freebie now while you can!

Bosch has been transformed by the hand of Lucifer, and has settled down to a quiet life with Aldaraia after saving the world from the diabolical plans of Mr. Skinn. But Earth is a battlefield for the powers that would-be, and it would never be long before another pretender to this disputed territory arose, one more powerful and terrifying than any ever seen...a being of purest evil so truly awesome in might, that even Lucifer had to have him bound and suspended in the deepest pit of hell where he could do no harm to anyone.

But once every thousand years even the chains of Lucifer cannot bind Leviathan, the Great Beast of the sea, and the seven-headed dragon makes a break for the world of men.

When Bosch stumbles across a trio of gruesome false prophets who proclaim the coming of the Great Beast, Bosch knows the time is short indeed...especially as the twisted Doc Ferox returns, having refined his murderous 'black metal' alloy which can mortally wound an angel of the Lord. With armies massing on both sides, Bosch and Aldaraia must race to stop Leviathan before he can bring about the onset of Armageddon.

Join Bosch and company for their most epic and cataclysmic confrontation yet, with the customary lashings of gore, horror and sardonic humour.

Happy New Year...and New Sci-Fi Book Art





Happy 2017!

Chaz ended 2016 with something he hasn't done for quite a while - a piece of book cover illustration.
