THE MAIN EVENT

40pp
Full colour
Print edition - perfect bound
Cover colourist: Triona Farrell

A short story comic collection largely pieced together in the year 2017. A year that had personal gear changes in the foreground and spiralling insanity political white noise static in the background. Have been very fortunate to reach out to a high-caliber range of writers, some of whom I've worked with before; Ryan K Lindsay (ETERNAL, NEGATIVE SPACE, BEAUTIFUL CANVAS), Lee Robson (BABBLE, FUTUREQUAKE, ACES WEEKLY), Martin Hayes (ALEISTER CROWLEY: WANDERING THE WASTE, GENTLEMEN GHOULS, ABOMINABLE GLORY) and new creative swinging partner Fraser Campbell (ALEX AUTOMATIC, SLEEPING DOGS, THE EDGE OFF).

Having created all the pencil/ink work within (also colouring and lettering duties, unless otherwise stated), was also extremely fortunate to utilise colourists such as Ellie Wright, Chris O'Halloran, Triona Farrell and letterer Bram Meehan in helping to piece stories and elements together.

BEFORE THE CHERNOBYL JOB

Writer: Ryan K Lindsay
Colourist: Ellie Wright
An origin story for a superspy and his most formidable villain, all on [and around] a space station.

HOW LONG...?

Writer: Lee Robson
Callie and Adam have been on the road for a long time, stealing whatever they need to get by. But Callie's tired of the direction her life has taken...

WOLVES

Writer/Artist: Alfie Gallagher
Two steps to the right and five minutes in the future, a young woman tries to find solace within virtual reality...

THE CORNER OF SOME FOREIGN FIELD

Writer: Martin Hayes
Colourist: Chris O'Halloran
Letterer: Bram Meehan
A folk horror story set on an English hillside during the Battle of Britain. A warning against the perils of imperial arrogance and the dangers of straying too far from home. The birds watch, and the hares listen, and the planes fall.

CHARLIE'S LAST NERVE

Writer: Fraser Campbell
Letterer: Bram Meehan
Meni is a kid who has become used to his reputation as a teller of tall tales, but when he finds out one of the seniors at his high school just might be AN ALIEN, his friends have got to believe him, right?

Risks and challenges

The content for this project is 90% done, some colouring still remains to be completed. I hope to have this wrapped up as the Kickstarter runs live. If there is any delays once campaign is hopefully completed successfully, I will honestly and promptly keep all backers updated.
I have previously worked on two successful Kickstarter campaigns where the product went out swiftly and also additional material such as original commissions were done in a smooth, realistic timespan.
