Serenade #10

After Jin Moon Kim’s rape attempt (issue #9), and still suffering the loss of her husband, Serena begins her dark, destructive journey of vengeance.  Vengeance on all those who have robbed her of happiness.

Kickstarter of the Week: Sonora

The story of Three, Lope, Watts, and the Bats comes to a violent and cathartic zenith in Sonora #6.

Launched: Nov 21, 2012
Funding ends: Dec 21, 2012

I don’t want to give too much away in case you haven’t read issues 1 through 5. Suffice to say Three is powerful and angry and in a rare opportunity to make things right.

I’m an independent comic b...
