As we prepare to launch our new campaign next week for Shadow Sentry: Origins #1 – we wanted to wet your palette and get you excited for this amazing book! We have employed the talents of Clayton Barton and Mark Poulton (Hawkman, Avengelyne), to add their touch to this new installment, and what they have done will blow you away! Clayton Barton of How to Draw Comics.net has done a fantastic job lending his style to the breakdowns and layouts for this book, that’s why we’ve decided to make a few select pages available to download, for free, for your viewing pleasure! Mark has finished the first draft of the script, and Clayton has finished all the breakdowns and layouts for the 24 page story for the Hopscotch origin and we’re eager for you to get a glimpse! Just Clayton’s line work on the breakdowns are delicious to behold, so take a look!
Here is a 9 page preview courtesy of Gumroad to get you pumped! – Just follow the link and enter $0 for the amount…
Launching next week on 2 . 2 3 . 2 3 — SHADOW SENTRY: Origins will be comprised of two 24 page stories, totaling 48 pages of awesome! Hopscotch will start us off with a bang (or a slice!) and launch us into modern Japan where Yakuza gangsters are fighting for their life! Can they take on a teenage girl with newly found teleportation powers!? You’ll find out as Hopscotch, or Katarina Katayama, embarks on a errand of revenge from the king of hell himself — that old dastardly Dragon — Satan! You’ll get a good look at him in this book as we set up what it means to be a Hell Born, and how they are chosen. You’ll also be introduced to a new villain, a cyborg ninja known as Akira, the Iron Demon (aka: Tatsu Akuma)!
Part two will be the origin story of Robert Noble, the current leader of the Shadow Sentry. Learn how he received his powers in Afghanistan following 9/11, and the details surrounding his run in with the Hell Born and Vengent!
Here’s a little sneak peek at page 1 (below), from the Commander Noble origin story! Art by Eric Ninaltowski. Assisting on Script will be new comer: Clay Pauley! New to our team but not new to comics, Clay has been writing his own stories for some time, and will soon be launching his own crowdfunded book – Myth No More!
If you’re new to the scene and want to catch up you’re free to wait until the campaign launches next week where there will be a tier where you can purchase Books 1 & 2, or you can get your hands on them now as we’ve updated the STORE! Cause why wait!
We look forward to seeing you next week when the campaign launches! 2/23 around 6: 30 pst on Indiegogo!
