Hey Folks! We're back! Hyuck! Hyuck! ...hoping to deliver this PREMIERE ISSUE of FEARLESS DAWN'S "SHORTS". What we basically got here is the Fearless Dawn Universe characters re-enacting short stories from history, legend, and folklore- all colorfully displayed in beloved comic book format.

  SEE!!!-General Mud defeat another couple of armies!

  FREAK!!!-Out as you encounter some ghouls and ghosties from Haunted Devils Den!!!

  FLIP THE EVER LOVIN' MUTHA OUT!!!-When you witness Jack the Ripper meeting his  match!!! 

All this and more can be yours in DIGITAL or in PRINT. Plus we got some cool art rewards too! We hope you can join us on this one, which may turn out to be as educational as it is entertaining! The book will be 32 pages long, in full-color, with a pencil story too. Steve has been developing a toned paper style for the continuity pages and we think it's looking pretty good. Some good ole' digital color on a few tales as well. Sample pages appear below...
