Blackfriars set to chill

The year is 793 AD. Savage, heathen armies from the north invade Northumberland, for today is the day of the viking, but the night… The night belongs to something else.

Now available as a free PDF download, Blackfriars is a tale of Vampires versus Vikings written and drawn by Michael Crouch, the man behind Storm Comics – and drawn in the style of a serial from the classic British Scream! comic.

The first episode appeared in the 2010 edition of indie title Hallowscream, with further episodes appearing on Michael’s blog in weekly instalments.

With a cover by John Caliber, the comic also includes an image gallery at the back of the collection with artwork by Andrew Milne, David Blankley and Grant Perkins (with Mike Bunt and Owen Watts colouring).

• You can download Blackfriars from Clickwheel, Mediafire or view online at MyEBook. File size = 30MB.
