Welcome back to the story of the fastest person on the planet!

Blue-Shift sped onto our shelves and into our hearts a year ago in "Blue-Shift: Frenemies"... and now it's time for her next adventure!
Blue-Shift sped onto our shelves and into our hearts a year ago in "Blue-Shift: Frenemies"... and now it's time for her next adventure!

Created and written by a team with over 20 years combined experience and brought to life by the amazing artwork of Rahmat Wisnubroto, Blue-Shift's first adventure was welcomed warmly by reviewers around the world.

The same amazing team have returned to bring her next adventure to life, along with a new enemy, and the need to resolve several things left unfinished in Blue-Shift: Fremenies!

Blue-Shift has potential she has never realised and there is at least one person in the city who considers that an opportunity.

While Monolith is stronger than most Empowered in the world, he prefers to manipulate his enemies rather than fight them directly... and, with the "disapppointing" failure of the Necromancer, he has come to intervene.

Of course, Blue-Shift has a number of real-world connections, which render her relatively easy to manipulate.

He's several steps ahead already, so is running fast enough to catch him really going to be good enough for our hero to defeat Monolith?

A date that went wrong, a bank heist...

Beth Sandwalker was already not having her best day ever, even before she was teleported to the roof and only held from a 5-storey drop by the hands of a new enemy.

It got worse - surprised by one of the thieves, she was left unconscious. Taking pity on her, Shira, the leader of the trio, took Blue-Shift back to her apartment... seemingly to avoid anyone being arrested.

Blue-Shift was grateful, but confused. How do you respond to being saved by someone you should have captured? She left while her hosts slept, unsure what else to do.

Unfortunately, the failed bank heist had consequences which led to the intervention of a villain who identified himself only as "The Necromancer". 

The ensuring fight led to Danny - Shira's twin brother - being injured and the Necromancer escaping.

Blue-Shift returned Danny to Shira to a rather frosty reception - Shira felt that Blue-Shift could have protected her brother better. They parted enemies once again.

But the story was not over...

Welcome to Blue-Shift #2!

NERDSoul reach over Blue-Shift #1 and enjoyed it a lot!

Chuck's Raw Reviews also took a look and... really liked it!

Co-Writer Johnathan Lewis spoke about Blue-Shift #1 with Wayne's Comics.

(He also spoke about #2 and we're waiting for that to be released soon!)

Rahmad Wisnubroto has once again brought his amazing talents to bear on Blue-Shift #2. Here's a few parts of pages (no spoilers!) from the comic.

Ed Jowett and Johnathan Lewis have been writing comics for over twenty years between them. Together, they founded SoV Comics and worked to bring the stories from the Era: The Consortium and Era: The Empowered universes to life.

Rahmat Wisnubroto  has illustrated for several other SoV Comics projects and has returned to lend his distinct style and skill to Blue-Shift #2: Mindgames. From sketches to colours, this artwork is all Rahmat, and his dedication to the character and the world shines through on every page.

Martin Popovski has returned to do the video editing for this project. While it's only a short video, he's brought his usual professional touch to the work and created something remarkable, as always. We're pleased to have him on board for editing! 

Devel Sullivan composed the music used in the video. He's a talented composer who's been working with the roleplaying part of Shades of Vengeance for some time, and relished the challenge of composing a theme tune for our speedster!

Ingrid Windsland did the voiceover for the video, and we'd like to extend our thanks for the contribution to the project. In our opinion, the essence of Blue-Shift has been captured perfectly! 

Risks and challenges

There are always risks in any project.

However, we are an established company with experience in completing projects of this kind - we have run over 40 Kickstarters between comics and tabletop games! - and the artwork is completed. The lettering is underway, so all that should be required is layout and printing.

We believe we can easily meet the deadlines we've set!

If the stretch goals for further comics are reached, we will begin producing them immediately after the funding is complete and we will keep you up to date for the entire duration of the project about where everything is at.
