Ria Vol 1: Seed of Hope Teaser by FabianMonk Ria Vol 1: Seed of Hope Teaser by FabianMonk
Talk about a blast from the past! Anyone remember this one: [link] ?
This is a comic project that was created by Thorsten Kiecker, the man behind StenArts ( [link] ), where I interned for one year after graduating from High School. Back then I started coloring pages for said comic, but once my internship was up and I moved to England for a year, the project was sort of put on hold.
Fast forward to about two and a half months ago: Sten came back out of the woodworks at break-neck speed, with a solid deadline and everything, knocked me straight off my feet. Initially I told him I couldn't do it, I was too busy and shit. But once I realized how much of an idiot/pussy I was for letting that go, we reached an agreement and I am currently back in his studio in Berlin, where we are working mercilessly (and pulling in favors from all over the place) to get this thing done in time for the Comic Convention in Erlangen (small city in Germany - more or less irrelevant for anyone who isn't native to this country, I think).

It'll be self-published (in German), for starters, but we are definitely planning on publishing this thing internationally, so keep your fingers crossed!
This right here is just a teaser panel from the first issue. I realize it ain't much, but consider this a small ass sign of life. And if we survive the coming week I'll be sure to let you know how it all went (aka: awesome)!

Line Art: Thorsten Kiecker (Sten)

Eeeek, it's staring at me! :sprint: That is an awesome teaser image--besides the excellent Woah! feeling it gives when you first see it, I also like the shades of blue and blue-green.

Independent publishing is the way to go!
But it is nice to get wider publishing options here and there!
Keep it up sir!

Well you'd have to read the comic to really find out who it is, but I can tell you this much: no, it's not a god's eye. :]
