SENTINEL Issue #4 will be kickstarted ina few eeks, and it's very different to what has before.

It's 1982, and fourteen year old Misty Moore has moved to a new village, traveling by coach to a newaby school. Her and her family share an old mansion house with two other families, one of whom has a very nasty little daughter.

When Misty is horribly bullied, she discovers a spirit in her room, Janet, who committed suicide 30 tears ago after being bullied herself. She offers to help Misty get revenge on those who have wronged her - bloody revenge...

What could go wrong?

I'll post sample pages as we get closer, but suffice to say this is a dark, deadly and emotional tale that will chill anyone who reads it, with excellent, atmospheric art by Paul Spence.

Here's the limited, alternatove cover by Neil Blackbird Sims to whet your appetite:

This should be funded but we still have original art and commissions available. This Ian Beadle's first full length comic (his only other published work was a three page Dredd in Zarjaz) and it's really seen him grow as an artist. The story itself is dark and full of character bulding, rather then a simple horror tale. More Carrie than Texas Chainsaw, if you see what I mean.

So please, back the project because it's that good, and if you want a nice bit of art from an artist who has discovered he really likes long projects (he will be returning to Sentinel with a future war story) then up your pledge to support him.

A single issue is just £4.00, so give it a shot.

I got MISTY MOORE in the post earlier this week, and have just had time to sit and read.

If you're looking for a comic that sums up- to my mind anyway- all that you may have heard about how British Girls' Comics could be as thrilling and... fun, as all the stuff we boys were reading back in the day- well then, this is it. Small, perfectly formed, black and white, and completely successful in telling a story that could have been torn straight from the heyday of Misty or Spellbound (if they'd allowed slightly stronger language and a bit more gore).
Theres a lot of love gone into this- it's never pretentious, never out stays its welcome, is perfectly paced and has a narrative strong towards the end that widens the scope of the story considerably. Clever stuff, and I liked it an awful lot.

Worth picking up.
