'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:

Issue 3 is now well underway, with 3 pages in the bag...

'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.
