Return to Blackburn Burrow

Issue #2 of Blackburn Burrow, the first comic project from Amazon Studios, has gone live in a variety of venues. Based on a screenplay by Jay Levy, the book is written by me, with art by Matthew Dow Smith, color by Jordie Bellaire, and a cover by Brian Stelfreeze.

As with the first issue, the full issue #2 is being offered up for free as a Kindle download, on Facebook, and on Graphicly. Yes, another 20 pages of comics, completely free. The full details on the formats can be found on the Amazon Studios blog, Hollywonk (I’ll also have a post there in the near future):

The mystery in titular town deepens with issue #2, as supernatural hunter Mister and his new companion, Merrin, descend into the depths of the mine. Deadly danger awaits them, as well as revelations neither of them is prepared for. Amazon Studios is very interested in reader feedback for the series, so please take a few minutes to complete the survey that follows the issue.

12 Gauge Comics put together Blackburn Burrow for Amazon Studios, pairing me with and my pal Matt Smith, and bringing in the great Jordie Bellaire for colors. Collaborating with an artistic team like that isn’t work, it’s a privilege. We’re all having a great time, and I hope that comes through in the pages.

Cheers,

Ron


Blackburn Burrow For Free

Free comics are good, right? Good free comics are even better. Available right now from Amazon Studios is Blackburn Burrow #1, by me, artist Matthew Dow Smith, colorist Jordie Bellaire, letterer Troy Peteri and cover artist Brian Stelfreeze. The package was put together by 12 Gauge Comics. Blackburn Burrow is a four-issue adaptation of an Amazon Studios screenplay, and the issues are being offered free.

Set during the waning days of the Civil War, Blackburn Burrow is the story of a man known only as Mister, who is engaged in an ongoing battle with the supernatural. In a remote Georgia mining town, Misters finds terrors beyond any he has ever faced, as well as shocking secrets to his own past. There’s adventure, there’s horror, there’s even a little romance.

At Baltimore Comic Con, Matt Smith and were on hand along with the Amazon Studios team to give away special print editions of issue #1, as well as posters featuring the great Stelfreeze cover. For anyone who wasn’t at Baltimore, issue #1 is available free in a number of digital formats. You can download the issue for Kindle here:
