Upcoming Graphic Novel - Mr. Rand.
Here's something of an announcment, everyone. A collaboration between Fine Line Ink and novelist Kevin Bell of Orillia, Ontario.
We met Kevin Bell two summers ago at the Fan Expo in Toronto, when we had a table and were displaying our wares for that time. He was entertaining the idea of turning one of his ideas into a graphic spectacle, so was browsing the Artist's Alley for possibilities.
After a month or so had passed, Kevin contacted us to see if we'd be interested in getting involved, with myself doing the illustrating. I can honestly say that, once having read the first 30 or so pages of his script, I was hooked. With both of us on tight schedules, production began slowly, albiet enthusiastically. Though certainly not completed, we'd like to show you a few teaser pages, just to wet your appetites (view comics section). We expect digital release date to be summer of 2015. We can hardly wait! It's a great project.
Hopefully, after viewing these samples, you, dear reader, will feel the same as us. Check out Kevin Bell's website at: www.harriersandheroes.ca
Mr. Rand. A thriller. A step into the occult. A journey plagued with murder and mystery. Who - or what - is Mr. Rand. 19th Century England cloaks many strange things in her swells of mist, as the masterful words of Kevin Bell can attest.
For those of you that have been fans of ours for the past year, you'll be aware that we've not posted anything new for the past three months. There was a reason for that. We went through some extensive changes and upgrades to the site, things that would make our behind-the-scenes work much simpler. We can now happily say those things are now done, and we're ready to re-launch Fine Line Ink.
As there was plenty to view during our three month hiatus, we didn't bother shutting the entire site down with a notice of "site under reconstruction". We do apologise, just the same, for our lengthy down-time. Please, check us out again. Tell your friends and all those that love comics.
And remember: drop us a line. Let us know what you think, what suggestions you might have.
Thomas Muzzell, August 2014
Fine Line Ink is owned and operated by artist - writer, Thomas Muzzell. Along with him in this adventure of producing quality comics, is his son, comic writer and letterer Kevin Muzzell, creative ideas men, Eric Snyder and Mike Stortini. The site has been up for a year now, and we've poured tons of work, stories, and - yes - money, into it. We've hired many artists from around the world in order to show you, our followers, as much WOW! as possible. We think it's been a great first year and we're looking forward to the second being even better.
Along with The Gift, Glimm's Fables, and Continuum, we have other items that you'll be impressed with. Thomas Muzzell's art book, 200 pages of colour and black and white illustrations, is a must for art fans. Also, check out the resin statue of Mary Garnier, the heroine of The Gift. Limited to 100, this statue will look great on your shelf of collectibles.
And a new release for us, is Dead Threads, an apocalyptic series of short stories and accompanying illustrations, created by the amazing mind of Eric Snyder. Read our sample story here, then check out Kindle for the whole works - it's a wild twist on the zombie craze we all love to be disgusted by! Eric, Thomas, and Kevin, have each taken a stab at the writing chores.
Last but not least, we're in collboration with Comixolgy, the digital comic site that markets comics from, not just the top-name companies, but all the way down to the Indies. That's us. Purchase Fine Line Ink properties there. You'll not be disappointed.
