THE DAY IT CHANGED THE SKY FOREVER...
The previous fall a burning celestial body appeared in the night sky, and now it’s orbiting the Earth, causing supernatural creatures—ghouls, werewolves, vampires—to revolt against humanity.
The monsters share a fragile truce amongst their factions as they usurp places of power, and act as an occupation army across the planet.
Humans live in fear, and struggle to survive.
An L.A. maverick named Chris Sanchez—renowned for his courage and heroism despite a lifetime of illegal activities—is summoned by an esteemed professor at the California Institute of Technology. He will organize a convoy to bring a “cure” to a safe location on the East Coast, where it will put to use and an onslaught on the enemy can proceed.
The convoy makes its way across the continent, benefitting from the state of disorder that has swept the country. From town to town, from near-disaster to precarious refuge, Sanchez leads his group resolutely, despite the tensions and suspicions that soon arise among them.
The most dangerous travel there ever was.
Scenes in novel form
Sometimes Eric and I prefer to start the writing of a scene as if it were from a novel. Click below for one featuring what seems to be vampires (Part II, Chapter 1).
Some of the characters
An artist on top of his game
Val is well-known as the co-creator, with Steve Gerber, of the incredible and unique Howard the Duck.
Original appearance of Howard (1973).
Howard in a more recent painting.
Val is well versed in the art of horror, as seen here in The Man-Thing.
In 2015 he participated in Zombies vs Robots…
…followed in 2016 by Of Dust and Blood, an expert retelling of Little Bighorn.
Val is also a masterful painter…
Our artist shows no sign of slowing down. One 2023 example:
This is Kimberly Banks, weapon and explosive specialist, a key member of the convoy. She’s responsible for the preservation of THE CURE, which means the truck transporting it must stay absolutely intact.
Adept drawing makes her face reflect who she is: unwavering, ruthless when needed, and unabashedly abusive towards her teammates. But they put up with her because there is no one better at what she does.
