Conor Boyle (Pencil_monkey) posted up this beautiful portrait of our hero, Moon the other day. It’s magnificent and disturbingly prescient of a scene in Moon 2. He’s even got the same gun as he has in the book. This isn’t surprising as Conor is a great artist and we’d advise you take a look at his work on yfrog.com. So this is the first piece of Moon artwork completed outside of a convention. We’d like to think this’ll inspire others to do the same because we love to see it. If anyone fancies doing a sketch of Moon we’ll post up and plug you up!!
Hope this is the first of more. Thanks to Conor Boyle.
As many of you know, Steve and I have a couple of new books coming out in November. “Tales of the Fallen” is a set of four one-shot comics based on the Unseen Shadows series of books by Barry Nugent. To celebrate the upcoming release of the comics, we’re going to be previewing one of them each week in October. If you want to be one of the only people in the world to pick up signed copies of Tales of the Fallen you’ll need to buy a ticket to theThought Bubble convention in Leeds so you can be there for the grand launch. Enjoy the previews:
Richmond Clements (Writer), Conor Boyle (Art), Paul Mclaren (Lettering)
On a Tour of Duty in the Persian Gulf, Lieutenant Steph Connisbee is signed on as the pilot on a top secret mission- Operation: Solomon. During this assignment she will uncover secrets and danger and step into the world of Unseen Shadows before she even knows it…

Those of you who have been following us for a while will know that Steve and I are currently (along with several other people) working on a Fallen Heroes spin off project called Unseen Shadows. It’s a huge project but one aspect of it involves a range of 22 page one shots, spinning out of Barry Nugent’s best selling novel/comic.
One of the spin off stories is Steph Connisbee: Operation Solomon by Richmond Clements and Conor Boyle. Barry released some preview art for the book earlier today and I have to say that it’s looking bloody lovely. Conor Boyle’s character work may well be some of the best I’ve seen on the Indy circuit and I’m now well and truly stoked for this book.
Here’s one of the pages for you to perv over but if you want to see the other one you’ll have to go over the the official UNSEEN SHADOWS WEBSITE (which is awesome).
EDIT: Be sure to have a look at Barry’s comment at the bottom of this post for clarification on what Unseen Shadows actually is. Basically Fallen Heroes is a part of the Unseen Shadows universe rather than the other way around.
