The wait is finally over!
Click the image above to read the first chapter of the all-new, all-awesome Chronicles of Solomon Stone #1, by me, Matthew Allen Smith, and Benjamin Birdie! Thrill to Solomon and Minxy’s latest case and the revelation of the newest–and deadliest–foe to face the World’s Greatest Half-Vampire Private Detective!
I’ll be putting up a new chapter every Wednesday for the next three weeks until the whole 24-page story’s available–including a letter column and Dan McDaid’s incredible pin-up with Chapter 3–and I’ve got to say, I’m actually really proud of this thing.
Not just because it’s the first full-length comic that I’ve managed to produce on my own, but because of the people who came together to make it happen. In all seriousness, Smithy’s not just an incredible artist, he’s one of the best collaborators I’ve ever worked with, and his talents aren’t just limited to making with the pretty pictures. I mean, I’d be lying if I said that the art for Page 6 wasn’t my desktop wallpaper at work, but he also chipped in a few lines of dialogue, and even helped me to make sure that Minxy Flatbush’s dialogue was as authentically British as possible.
So here’s hoping you enjoy The Chronicles of Solomon Stone! Give it a read and let us know what you think!
