Fans of Luke Cooper’s The Dark Gospel series, which appears in the speculative fiction quarterly Murky Depths, who can’t get enough of the cigarette-smoking, alcohol-swigging angel, Halo Slipping, will be please to know that The House Of Murky Depths (Murky Depths’ publishing arm) has released a full-colour 32-page Halo story called Mengele’s Brain. The comic is currently only available from www.murkydepths.com and Orbital Comics in London.
Also from The House Of Murky Depths comes a 36-page black and white comic from Nicholas Dishington called Shadowraith about a young female detective in search of a missing person. Very dark and demonic.
The House Of Murky Depths will be launching Luke Cooper’s new hardback graphic novel in Orbital Comics on Saturday 27 March. It’s a collection of the story arc that has featured in Murky Depths from Issue #2 to Issue #11.
That’s also the last day of Nancy Farmer’s art exhibition in Orbital’s gallery. Nancy has been illustrating stories for Murky Depths since Issue #5.
