Apologies for the flagrant use of the third person in that blog title, wasn’t sure what else to call this post. We’ve been teasing you guys with promises of big announcements for a while now so it’s really nice that I can finally reveal one of them at long last.
Earlier this week I agreed a deal with Barry Nugent (author of the Fallen Heroes novel and mastermind of the whole venture) to write a one shot comic based on one of the characters from the Fallen Heroes comic book series. The book will be entitled “Clancy Wallencheck: Band of Butchers” and (as the name might imply) it’ll be all about FH’s resident gun-for-hire and professional badass, Clancy Wallencheck.
Clancy makes his appearance in the very first issue of the comic (he’s even on the cover) and he’s a pretty major player all the way through the story. In “Band of Butchers” we’ll be diving headlong into the psyche of one of the world’s most dangerous men as well as revealing the secret origins of Clancy’s elite mercenary unit “Blacklight”.
The book will be out sometime later in the year and will be available as part of the “Tales of the Fallen” anthology where it will sit alongside stories by Pete Rogers, Richmond Clements & Cy Dethan. I’m extremely excited to be working alongside creators of this caliber and to have a crack at a character as interesting as Clancy. Obviously there’s still a lot of bits and bobs to work out but rest assured that we’ll keep you as up to date as we can over the coming months.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go research pictures of guns…lots of guns.
