Hello Dark Ponders.
Fans of our award nominated anthology series Flesh Tones will be pleased to know that issue two is complete, both story and art wise, and is being put together by the Dark Pond team as we speak.
For issue two, we have amassed a rather impressive team of very impressive artists to illustrate the stories here so we thought that as we are so excited to get this comic out in to the world that we would throw you some previews.
This installment will have three stories and I can honestly say that each one is one of my favourite things that Dark Pond Creations have put out in our short time in the comic book world.
The first is a story that I have written called Always Follow Your Heart. It's a darkly comedic story that has a nice sting in the tale for the protagonists. For this one, I wanted the story to have a classic, almost art deco / classic fashion look. That's when the perfect artist popped in to my head. Stephane Cote, the creator of Fantasmagoria, stepped up and really gave the story a dark yet strangely beautiful look to it and really brought it to life in a way that was even better than I imagined.
The second is a first for Dark Pond in that it's a story that hasn't been drawn or written by any of the original members of the team. I actually stumbled on the story when I saw a post on Twitter of all places and then reached out to contact the creator. The story is called Crimson Dusk and has a real classic and spooky feel to it thanks to both the writing and art from a young debuting artist named Katy Anne. I can't say too much about the story but it blew me away when I first saw it so I hope all of you dedicated fans will love it as much as I did.
On the annoying front, I'm going to keep the third story a second as it's a story that I am massively proud of and really want it to be one that shows the depth of our roster.
Hope you enjoy the previews and keep your eyes glued to the site for when the issue drops.
