About

Cover by Gary Kelly from Geek Illustration (Neverending and Before Vessels).

 “GREY” is a comic book based series that takes place on a world referred to as “MagEarth”. The planet’s life force (Magia) is a magical flow of energy that gives life to everything on the planet and in turn everything on the planet has access to its magic. 

The central protagonist is Nicholas Grey, a child-prodigy turned unsociable police detective. A childhood accident leaves Nicholas forever severed from his connection to Magia leaving him left to find new technologically inventive ways to exist in a world he no longer feels part of.

After a series of catastrophic accidents rock the city of Alumia, Grey begins to realise that these incidents go far deeper than appearances suggest. 

As Grey, partnered with former on-stage performer Alexander “Alacatraz” Niverian begin to unravel this deadly mystery, they discover a conspiracy to hide the world’s growing energy crisis and a series of murders that might even threaten the planet itself.

The series has been created from a love of The Dresden Files, Harry Potter, Final Fantasy VII, and Skullduggery Pleasant. “GREY” is created by Kenny McLellan with art by Phil Buckenham and lettering by Rob Jones.  

Detective Nicholas Grey

  An accident leaves child prodigy Nicholas forever severed from the connection to Magia; the source of the world’s magic and very way of life.

Grey’s simple life accelerates out of his control when a routine inspection of the latest incident seems to indicate that it was no accident, Worse yet, the accidents appear to be a cover-up for a string of serial killings. To investigate these murders and the incidents surrounding them.

For Grey these cases are personal, a similar incident killed his daughter before his eyes. Grey is now hell-bent on finding the person responsible and bringing them to Jutsice.


Alexander "Alacatraz" Niverian

Alexander “Alacatraz” Niverian is a former stage performer turned Detective.

During his last performance a “Magi-spill” occurred killing his entire audience and stage crew. Feeling responsible for their deaths, Alacatraz indulges in Alcohol and Sex, until he hits rock bottom.

With the help of his Husband Alacatraz builds himself up and joins the APD in hopes of finding the person responsible.

In memory of what he has lost and because still not ready to give up the feeling of being on stage, Alacatraz wears his Red Tail Coat and Top Hat.

"McLellan’s Grey is a melting pot of some of the finest fiction of the last few decades. Whether you’re into hard boiled detective shows like Broadchurch, or fantastic RPG’s like Final Fantasy VII, there really is something for everyone in this fascinating new adventure."

 Written by Kenny McLellan.

Born May 1991, Kenny is a Scottish writer and artist. Starting with fantasy scripts, Kenny decided to explore the genre of comic book writing. Though Kenny has cited comic writers and authors such as Alan Moore and Jim Butcher, his own writing influences are rooted not just in books (comics or otherwise) but also in Movies such as Lord of the Rings as well as Video Games like Persona 4, whose works still inspire him. In addition to writing comics, Kenny is also an avid comic convention attendee.
