……..From our friends at Markosia!
“Terminus At Fenton’s Green” is an original graphic Novel published by Markosia and will be launching with an exclusive hard backed cover at the London Super Comic Convention on March 15th and 16th 2014.
It will also see a 3 part digital release culminating in the collected works being released for comixology during March.
The story is about a Victorian London gentleman that receives a mysterious offer of employment and is lured to the town of Fenton’s Green. He is trapped in an inescapable nightmare and must fight for his freedom and sanity. But he may be the greatest evil of all.
The book respectfully nods to “Lovecraft” and “Hammer House of Horror” in equal measures and plays with art styles in a “Wizard of Oz” way to maximize impact!
The book has been written by Adam Cheal (Toxic Storm, British Showcase Anthology) and Pencilled and Inked by Russ Leach (British Showcase Anthology, Unstoppable Comics, Indifference Engine 2). Colours are provided by Mike Summers and letters by Mindy Lopkin.
Comics industry star Sean Phillips (Batman, X-Men, Marvel Zombies) has provided the foreward and the book already has great reviews from sites such as “comicsandcookies.com” and “curiosity of a social misfit”. Comicbooked.com will be running a review prior to the books release.
Ari Carr of comicsandcookies.com said of the book “this graphic novel is dark, disgusting, and above all else, brilliant!”
And Sean Phillips wrote… “This comic has it all, murder, monsters, mayhem and mammaries! What more could you want?”
The book can be picked up at the LSCC signed by Russ and Adam at the Markosia stand and all those people pre-ordering or buying on the day will be entered into a prize draw to win one of two pieces of original artwork in pencil that appear in the book. Markosia are also giving away selected books with purchases and Russ will be their sketching on the day.
The book is also on general release as a paper back and hard back through Markosia’s site as well as all good book sellers.
