If you’re not into comics but just want to support me because I’m so awesome and drop-dead gorgeous, I’d love for you guys to like our FB page:

The logline of the story is:

“In a future where death is not always the end, a lonely yet resolute Aboriginal-Australian detective challenges the world’s most powerful corporation in a battle to save his people from almost certain extinction. If he is to succeed, he must re-discover his Indigenous roots while also finally learning to overcome the loss of his family who died in the techno-plague that ravished Australia five years earlier.”

The Resurrected comic touches on several philosophical themes that I feel particularly engaged with, including those linked to death and mortality, identity and the nature of freedom and responsibility. It also delves into social-political issues, most significantly the ongoing destructive effects that the centuries old invasion of Australia has had on the Indigenous population.

I’ve been lucky enough to have some of my Indigenous friends review my plot and script and some of the art.

I’m working alongside an extremely talented and experienced team, who have all worked for well-known comic book publishers – Crizam is the artist, Salvatore Aiala the colourist and Erica Schultz is the editor. We’ve just hooked a big name for the variant over but we’ll keep that a secret for the timebeing.

The first issue is complete and will be out in a few months. We will be self-publishing it and running a Kickstarter in mid-Feb as a way of streamlining pre-orders and pre-selling some merchandise. There will be PDF copies of issue one available in April and the print copy should be available in June. We’re already deep into issue two so that should arrive hot on the heels of the first issue.

Here are a few sneak peak panels to give you an idea of the art.

Thanks to all of my wonderful family and friends who have already been so supportive!

Thanks!
Christian

The first issue of ‘The Resurrected comic,’ including the cover, is finally 100% complete. We’re all stoked with the result, so to celebrate, we’re revealing another panel, this time of Cain Duluth and Akimi Ozaki, who are partners at the Special Division for the Resurrected.

Hope you guys like it.

Art finally complete for ‘The Resurrected’ Issue #1!

The art is finally finished for the first issue of The Resurrected comic so we’re celebrating with the first ever public release of a completed page – Page 1 (albeit low res for now). Not only that, but our artist Crizam ZAMORA has shared the entire art process for this page, from the pencils/ink through to the colours/letters,

From pencils to colours: The Resurrected artistic process

We finally have the chance to reveal some art process shots for our comic book series ‘The Resurrected,‘ pencilled and inked by artist Crizam Zamora, coloured by Salvatore Aiala and written by myself, Christian Carnouche.

Check out our logline if you want to know what the series is all about:

Logline

We’ve isolated one panel to illustrate the process from the very first pencil outlines (which are quite detailed compared to what a lot of other artists provide for their outlines), to the inking – where these outlines are fleshed out, and finally to the colours. This panel won’t be complete until the dialogue/narration bubbles are added by our letterer.

It is quite common in comics that changes are made during the artistic process, as you can see with this panel. In the pencilled page, the imprisoned Indigenous are standing in front of some trees, while – for the sake of clarifying the story’s chronology, we decided to replace this background in the inked page with a prison.

I know I’m a little biased but I’m absolutely stoked with the magic Criz and Sal have weaved into this panel, and the rest of the story for that matter.

 

Introducing Salvatore Aiala: the colourist for ‘The Resurrected’

I’m very excited to finally introduce Salvatore Aiala, the colourist for The Resurrected comic book series.

Salvatore is a regular artist for Dynamite and has worked on popular titles like Z Nation (adapted from the hit television show), James Bond: Felix Leiter, Swords of Sorrow: Black Sparrow & Lady Zorro Special. Check out Salvatore’s Comic Book Database profile if you’d like to see the rest of his titles:

And here’s more of Salvatore’s work on Deviantart:

The Resurrected is actually reuniting Salvatore with our penciller/inker Crizam Zamora, who both worked on the hit comic Swords of Sorrow: Black Sparrow & Lady Zorro Special.

If you’ve missed our previous posts, here are a couple examples of Salvatore’s and Crizam’s work for our current series:

We’re finally releasing some randomly chosen completely inked and coloured panels from our comic book series ‘The Resurrected.’

Check out our logline if you want to know what the series is all about:

The below panels have been randomly selected from some of our beautiful pages at various points in the first issue; pencilled and inked by artist Crizam Zamora and coloured by Salvatore Aiala, who we’ll formally introduce very soon. Obviously I’m working with some extremely talented and experienced artists…The pages are still be lettered with narration and dialogue.

This first screenshot is of two panels of the second page, which is basically an introduction to the story’s overall theme. Yes we’ve adopted the not so subtle sledgehammer approach to the theme….

The below panel takes place pretty much just as the action takes off. Hope you all enjoyed these previews! What the hell is happening in this panel? Well don’t ask me! I”m just the writer!

 

Introducing Crizam Zamora: the artist for ‘The Resurrected’

So who is the mysterious artist behind The Resurrected’s beautiful artwork? His name is Cristhian ‘Crizam’ Zamora, a Uruguayan living in Portugal. Not only is he the ‘penciller’ of our series but he is also the ‘inker’ (another artist will colour his finished pages).

Crizam is an extremely talented artist and has already gained a wealth of experience in the comic book realm. He has worked for such well-known comic book publishers as Dynamite and Zenescope and on titles like ‘Vampirella, Swords of Sorrow: Black Sparrow & Lady Zorro Special, E.V.I.L. Heroes, The Precinct  and Grimm Tales of Terror. Check out Crizam’s Comic Book Database profile if you’d like to check out the rest of his titles:

As a first time writer, it is was always going to be difficult for me to find artists to colloborate with, so I’m honoured to work alongside such an experienced talent. I was lucky enough to have had my script and story editor introduce me to Crizam (who in turn hooked me up with our colourist).

If you’ve missed our previous posts, here are some examples of some of Crizam’s pencils for The Resurrected:

And here is Crizam’s art blog, where you’ll find loads of examples of his previous art:

Hope you guys enjoy Crizam’s work. Soon we will introduce the colourist.
