The 13th Stone- Comicstrip
« on: 29 October, 2016, 01:58:48 pm »

It's become something of a Halloween tradition for Bryan Coyle and Lee Robson to do a short comic, but this year (with the help of Bolt-01), we've gone one better and done a full blown 22 page one-shot, called The 13th Stone.

"Taking a job in the small English village of Argleton, archaeologist Joy Lambton finds herself wiling away her spare time investigating the ancient stones that stand on the outskirts and trying to solve one particular mystery that surrounds them: why the few sources she can find claim there are only eleven stones, when there are clearly twelve.

But when she learns of a thirteenth stone, Joy begins to uncover the strange and sinister connection they have to the village..."

A print edition is for somewhere down the line, if there's enough interest in the digital version.

I like drawing folk horror, though in the interests of full disclosure, I've never seen The Wicker Man but watch Buck Rogers: The Space Vampire every single Halloween.  Remade many times in movie form by creatively-bankrupt hacks, the absolute worst version I've seen has probably been Dracula 3000, a movie which is so creatively worthless on every conceivable level to the point that during it I twice had the genuine thought "he is a better actor than this" about both Casper Van Dien, and Coolio.  Imagine a latter-day Red Dwarf episode without any jokes* and 90 minutes long and you're in the ballpark.

* this comment is what is commonly known as "an open goal."

If I'm paying 10p, this had better be fucking good.

I bunged you an extra 5p* because I enjoyed the raunchy sex romp. On that note, Michael's introduction is a candidate for Up The Arse Corner.

The Bear can draw comics; the David Lapham line compliments a natural sympathy with landscape, while that thing Carlos does where he splits a single image into two panels and the Elektra Lives Again staircase effect demonstrate confident storytelling.

Reads great digitally too, with most pages divided into three sections that fit the screen of your phone or tablet.

Bit of a necro-post here, but thought it worth reminding folk of this- a cracking little tale that you can pick up for- quite literally- pennies (though you'd be a right tight-Squaxx to pay pennies) if you wish...
