Written in the traditional style of good is good, evil is evil and always comes to a sticky end, this tale of happiness, music and love is a spellbinding introduction to the magic of The Wonder Tales.
Fabula Zero Exposition was my first real trip into writing a graphic novel comic book story featuring Superheroes and Ninjas. This isn’t your traditional superhero story though… Exposition twists your reality as it jumps between comic book action and narrative story telling as we follow the mis-adventures of Jack a comic book writer with a huge case of writers block. After getting the lead write on a flagship comic book Jack cannot finish his story and his characters start to come alive to finish it for him. Throwing Jack into all sorts of comic book adventures from facing Giant Robots to fighting Ninjas dangling above a comic book convention. This is the most unique graphic novel you will ever read and will leave you wondering just what reality is Jack in?
Speaking of realities I will also be bringing Sigmartyr – They Shall inherit an unofficial action figure comic book, a 42 page graphic novel that is set in an Apocalyptic reality were only bio-engineered Soldiers are left to fight a long forgotten war. This is a photo action comic book that uses Stikfas figures to tell a dark action adventure. Stylized in the traditional English Battle comics, this is a dark and grim tale that pulls no punches.
And finally moving up the age scale with a story that is a mature teen/young adult adventure is dark narrative adventure The Tether Saga, the story of Sarah teenage girl who has reluctantly been thrust into the role of our realities protector. She is aided in this task by CT the Grandson of the original Protector and by Paul, a Guardian Angel of sorts that she controls via the Tether device. This adventure is set on the streets of Baltimore and will leave you watching the shadows. The story is planned as a trilogy and currently The Tether and Accept One are available.
