I am excited to announce that illustrator extraordinaire Samir Simao will provide pencils and inks for the pages of Vorpal No. 4! I’ve been a fan of Samir’s work since being affiliated with him at a former publishing house. His work is full of vibrance, action, movement and emotion. Some of his specific work in an unreleased comic really hooked me. So, when he told me his schedule allowed for him to work on this issue, I could not have been more pleased. He is the perfect person to move into Diego Albuquerque’s former role and I’m excited to see what Samir, Mike and I will create.
Vorpal issues 1, 2 and 3 are available here, on Amazon and through Indyplanet.us, or by emailing me directly.
In the darkest corners of the galaxy, where corruption and greed choke the life from entire star systems, there exists a woman feared and revered by those who dwell in the shadows. Vorpal, a name whispered with awe and trepidation, is not just an assassin – she is the galaxy’s merciless harbinger of balance, a silent force serving a shadowy government. But Vorpal’s purpose goes far beyond the crimson trails she paints across the Nine Systems. As she prepares to squeeze the trigger on her latest target, a vision of blinding clarity shatters her resolve, causing her to falter and miss her mark. Suddenly, she’s on the run, pursued not only by the military, police, the vilest underworld denizens, and her own Assassin’s Guild. In a dystopian future where worlds collide, and races clash, Vorpal’s journey unfolds amidst a tapestry of revolution and upheaval. She treads a perilous path, the fragments of her life gradually aligning. She’s a harbinger of destiny, her very existence is a veil concealing a profound, stunning reality, harboring a concealed purpose amidst the enigmatic backdrop of a world hurtling towards tumultuous transformation, where a solitary figure edges ever nearer to her incredible fate. Vorpal is published by Atomic Bazooka Studios and available on Amazon and through Indyplanet.us.
