The Passing Of A Legend

stan-lee Stan “The Man” Lee
December 28, 1922 – November 12, 2018

As he moves on to that great bullpen in the sky, I salute the man who, in collaboration with other titans of our industry, created so many characters that I have come to love over the years.

I got to meet him a few, albeit brief, times, but I’m thankful that I did. He was far from a perfect person, none of us are, but the world is richer and more wonderful for having had him in it.

Godspeed, Stan, and…EXCELSIOR!

Markosia Monday Spotlight On: Hero Killer

covers_new.inddEach week we’ll be turning the spotlight on one of the many quality graphic novels from our extensive back catalogue.

This week it’s the turn of Hero Killer.

Superheroes never lose. They always thwart the threat before them and justice prevails. Not this time! The superheroes are being hunted! A serial killer is killing them one at a time.

The bug is the first to fall. His arms and legs have been ripped from his body, much in the way a child would dismember a spider.

Detective Marquez is on the scene, using her unparalleled profiling skills.

However, Captain Power and Earth’s mightiest heroes arrive and she is shut out of the case. Marquez will not relent. She knows the heroes are out of their depth. Sure, they have saved the Earth from alien invaders and supervillain threats, but they have never faced anything like this.
Will Marquez follow orders and drop the case? Will the killer’s identity and motivation be revealed? And most pressingly, how many superheroes will die along the way?

Join us in this first volume of Hero Killer to find out.

Mycelium Seep is a science fiction story that deals with questions arising from the implementation of new technology- Is it possible to curb the rise of technology when it seems to lead down a dangerous path? A critical stance is taken regarding transportation, focusing on personal motorised vehicles.
