A THRONE OF BONES six-issue special


We have selected an illustrator for the six-issue A THRONE OF BONES comic special. It will be released in electronic and omnibus editions - no single print issues - and will cover the battle between Legio XVII of House Valerius and the Vakhuyu and Chalonu goblin tribes. The Legend Chuck Dixon is adapting the script from the novel and Arklight Studios will be coloring it.

This is not a scene from the comic, as those familiar with the novel will immediately recognize, it is just one of the samples that the illustrator provided us to demonstrate that he was capable of drawing the various fantasy elements required by the story.

And for those who are not unreasonably concerned this will have a negative effect on the release of our other comics, don't worry, other than helping select the illustrator(s), I don't have to do anything on this one.

Our Benevolent Supreme Dark Lord is, indeed, Generous and Kind.

Can't. Wait.

Wow. That's quite the artist! Great choice!

MOAR COMICS WOOO!

Sally Field: "Help us save these poor goblin-abused dire wolves, cruelly bred for war, find new homes. Won't you help us?" (Director yells, "cut". Startled, the dire wolf then bites her hand off and eats it).

Very nice concept. Drawn well, with most of the story shown by position and expressions. You know this ends poorly for the wolf-rider, almost certainly.

Looks awesome.

Magnificent!

Did you consider black & white or color all the way? What we've seen of Green Knight Saga would make me think twice.

A Roman Legion trooper, almost completely. Armed out to fight in a group really, but looks dangerous enough all by himself.

Yep, nice art work, but I wish he could have brought to life the actual battle between the lead mounted goblin and the nephew knight. Oh well, wait we shall.

This will be a perfect action comic.

I wish he could have brought to life the actual battle between the lead mounted goblin and the nephew knight.

He's never seen it or heard of it. His entire art direction was "draw a goblin riding a wolf attacking a Roman legionary."

I'd say he more than delivered.

This looks really good. Your comics teams have been improving with each and every completed work. The game has been sufficiently upped.

Blogger Warunicorn January 22, 2020 10:22 AM  

That's fantastic!

Love you, Vox. Your blunt, direct communication approach dispels misdirection so effectively. I read that, laughed, and smiled. It is such a breath of fresh air when compared with your competitors.

Honestly, even just the straight-up legionnaire versus goblin told me what this was and stuffed my neurons onto the hype train like Japanese commuters at peak hour.

Blogger Gregory the Tall January 22, 2020 11:19 AM  

Looks great! Will buy,

Blogger Theproductofafineeduction January 22, 2020 11:36 AM  

Vox, ever since I read first read about Savondir in A Throne of Bones I always wondered how will the Amorrans utilizing arms and armarment of antiquity fare against the Savondir and their medeival inspired heavy cavalry. That juxtaposition alone had me hooked from the get go.

Also I loved the scene where the goblin spell caster is doing his thing and the Amorrans go "NOPE!" with their ballista.

Color all the way.

Blogger OvergrownHobbit January 22, 2020 12:45 PM  

Sweet!

Blogger Ahărôwn January 22, 2020 1:04 PM  

Very, very nice! I look forward to it.

Blogger Korbin Ransley January 22, 2020 1:22 PM  

Nice 😃

Nicely done, looking forward to this.

Uhmazin'!

Blogger pdwalker January 22, 2020 6:17 PM  

will buy.

Blogger JG January 22, 2020 6:46 PM  

Epic artwork! Would buy in leather (that's a hint).

Blogger Bobiojimbo January 22, 2020 7:30 PM  

Cool illustration. I hope it makes into the omnibus.

Blogger General Grudge January 22, 2020 9:07 PM  

Looks great.

Blogger Gunnarvoncowtown von Cowtown January 22, 2020 10:59 PM  

Shut up and take my Money.

Blogger Gaius Marius January 24, 2020 4:46 PM  

Is there another actual novel coming out in that series?
