Wondering what's new in Comic Books?

Check out Blind Prophet!

Reviews have said things like:

"...The concept is beautiful, the execution mind-bending."

and

"It most certainly does not pull any punches..."

and

"In all honestly this book really shook me up...this book is scary because it could happen."

Pretty extraordinary commentary for a comic book, don't you think?

Blind Prophet is the story of a boy, Daniel Prophet, born blind and autistic, who undergoes an experimental procedure that gives him the ability to peer into the spiritual realm, where demons tempt, and angels defend.

Blind Prophet is kind of a blend between the Dead Zone, The Sixth Sense, and the Screwtape Letters.

Or, if you want to keep the comparisons to comic books, maybe Daredevil and Constantine.

Find out in this short story of guts, glory, and braaaaains.

Interview with the author

Q.How is this story connected to A Boy and His Corpse?This short story is a follow-up to that novel. It concerns Alan Chandler and his undead wrestling federation, which we saw at the end of A Boy and His Corpse.Q. What would you categorize this story as? Is it occult horror?In a way, yes, but it's tame occult horror. I'd say it's closer to zombie comedy. There's more humor in this free short story than horror.Q. The main character in this story is African American but you don't make that point known. Why not?I feel that too many stories point out a character's race, but I don't think that's important. We're all similar as human beings, so I didn't want the reader to find out about a character's race through some silly speech pattern, which you sadly find too often in fiction.Q. But you still call it African American Science Fiction. Why?Well, I am an African American author, so wouldn't it fit into that category?Q. Would you also put the story in the science fiction telekinesis field?Absolutely. Moving a corpse is moving something, isn't it?Q. What do you ultimately want people to get out of this story?I want people to laugh and sign up for my mailing list. I want us to be friends! :)

Maxwell, a guitarist whose band is coming off the road under discouraging circumstances, has come to a crossroad.
