An Comic Book Odyssey!!
MIDNIGHT SHADOWS...... I call it a comic book odyssey.
Why is that? WELL.... It's the long term directory that Victor Pinelo (the artist) and myself has laid before us. And for you, if you dare to support our horror/suspense series that dives deep within the realm beyond the boundaries of death.
Aaron Dalton here..... hello!
Are you still reading this article? I hope so....
I don't know about you, but I certainly have a fascination with small towns. If you live in or have lived in a small town, I bet you possibly think I am weird. MAYBE SO. - It's okay!!
Whether it's Collinsport in DARK SHADOWS, Mystic Falls in THE VAMPIRE DAIRIES, or Derry in Stephen King's IT.... those towns has it's own character within the narrative. And I love those small towns in real life that has it's own charm, mystery, and it's fair share of interesting characters.
I grew up in one of those towns, rich with it's own stories of tragedy and of the unknown, and yet it has remained standing with a level of charm and good people.
MIDNIGHT SHADOWS honors my roots and along the way the people that made an impact growing up. GRANTED, there's a level of fiction tossed into this comic book narrative, however, I am still having fun giving a nod to this or that while telling this small town story.
It's my greatest hope that Victor and I will be able to continue delivering this comic book odyssey for many issues to come! You'll never know which background character in the local diner might reappear later; or if a certain detail in issue one might have a greater importance, lets say in issue 13.
THANKS FOR READING and I hope you all have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Lets keep the pages turning!
