Wayward Raven announced today the release of their short story collection Ominous Odes to help kick off their 2013 convention season. Ominous Odes is a collection of published short stories as well as never before seen new releases. The stories tell tales of the dark and eerie that always lurks just outside of human perception, fleeting upon the cusp of vision. A dark lottery ticket, a future serial killer, a tragic female legend and a detective on the trail of a killer all reside within. This collection is available in both hardback and digital form on Amazon and can be purchased at http://wwraven.com/YsoFci. Fans can bring their copies to Boston Comic Con April 20-21 or Wizard World Philly to get them signed. Fans who visit wearing Wayward Raven apparel of any type will receive a free comic book!
“Why bring a short story collection to a comic book convention,” asked Mark Frankel, CEO/COO of Wayward Raven. “Because Wayward Raven is a lifestyle brand as opposed to a product specific line. We offer horror, sci fi, fantasy and we have children’s products coming down the pike. Our products span different genres but ALL of our products cater to alternative culture fans.”
The Ascendant is a fantasy-horror comic book that follows a Duke of Hell named Cail who developed a crisis of conscience after eons of unrepentant malevolence. He escapes to the land of the living where demons he once set free wreak havoc and in an act of redemption sends them back with his dark blade.
Horsemen is a sci-fi/action comic where a team of cosmic guardians confront a nemesis bent on destroying freewill throughout the multi-verse. Plots are revealed throughout the galaxy and tragedy visits upon the Horsemen as they gallop across the stars trying to prevent the ultimate catastrophe.
The Cell tells the story of seventeen year old Les Logan, an aspiring comic book artist who begins to doubt himself after Aki Kubo, his friend and creative partner, dies in an accident in which Les is involved. From beyond the grave, Aki contacts Les through a cell phone and tells him there’s a problem. Aki can’t cross over because a girl named Rachel is wasting her second chance at life after receiving his donated liver. Les must help her so Aki can move on to the afterlife.
And if that wasn’t enough good stuff, check out our web comic at www.damnheroes.com. Damn Heroes is a journey of a gentle man making his way in the big city, giving back to the friendly and vivid characters of that utopia with love and respect. Hero City is paradise on earth, a garden of Eden nurtured and protected by some of the most respected superbeings on the planet.
Okay, okay, you got us. It is actually the exact opposite. YOU go be the only norm in a city of big headed, self-righteous superheroes. Go on, I dare you! New content every Wednesday!
