Coming Soon- PART OF THE PROCESS


The methods used in comic creation are continually surprising. PART OF THE PROCESS is one of the more unusual I've encountered. The art was done 'before' the story. Who The Fanzine? I hear you exclaim, that can't work, but it does in this case. The art & plot were provided by Jim Lavery and the script was sculpted by Lee Robson. The results will be available for all to see in the next FutureQuake.

Available here from Comixology, the series has two more issues to go to complete the story, and I for one cannot wait.

In Review: The Ripper Legacy

The Ripper Legacy by Jim Alexander and Mark Bloodworth published by Caliber.



Cover harvested from Drivethru

Imagine a setting where Eve taking the bite of the apple and Cain killing Abel release a palpable force for evil that wants to perpetrate itself upon the human race. Fast forward to Whitechapel in 1888 and this force gains a name for itself- The Ripper Legacy. Fast forward to the '90's (when the book was written) and the involvement of the Raven Inc; a group of investigators that specialise in the cases that conventional agencies cannot solve.

Anything more would be a spoiler so I'll stop there and let you know that this tale, originally published as a three part mini-series is now available from Drivethru comics ($4.99) and also from Amazon (£3.71) and Comixology (£3.99) as a digital download.
I really enjoyed this book, the artwork is clear and unfussed- there are a few storytelling issues that resulted in headaches for the the letterer, but on the whole this is a solid story told well. To say more would- in my opinion- detract from the quality of the story.

Highly recommended.
Thanks to Jim for the review pdf.
