The Kill Screen #2

Issue #2 of The Kill Screen is ready for it’s launch at Leam Comic Con on the 18th October. It was another really cool issue, and amazingly Josh’s art gets better and better. For me the highlight of the issue was these cool health bars Mike had me design, they are another example of the interesting story-telling techniques he comes up with.

The Kill Screen #1

Issue 1 of The Kill Screen is complete! It was a lot of fun and the outcome is a REALLY strong story so I look forward to selling it at conventions with Mike and Josh. This is how Mike describes it on his site:

“Humanity has reached its Kill Screen. Now only the strongest will survive as computer errors transcend from the digital world into our own, destroying everything in their way.

Set two years after ‘The Kill Screen’ event, humanity is left on the brink of extinction leaving the remaining survivors caught in a deadly 8-Bit fight for survival.

No one knows what caused computer errors and technological faults to infect our world, but with a wide range of different dangers, threatening the lives of the survivors on a daily basis, no one cares. Surviving is all that matters.”

Some of the reviews have been fantastic already:

“10/10 – Edge of the seat moments mix with brutal but very human moments. Brilliant!” Comics Anonymous

“A fantastic read, with an incredibly original concept, and it’s not coming from the big two or Image, but from the UK indie small press scene. You have to get your hands on it however you can!” Bleeding Cool

“9.5 The Kill Screen is a must read – it offers a unique premise, and strong execution.” Unleash the Fanboy

“Startlingly original. The concept alone makes it worth checking out.” Gore Press

It also featured a limited edition variant cover by Ian Churchill!
