VanBreed Studios is proud to announce the creation of our first comic; The Sword of Freyja. To make sure we give the fans a great experience, we have assembled an all-star team for the first issue. The team includes Cory Hamscher (artist, co-creator), Allen Cordrey (writer, letterer, co-creator), Ross Hughes (colors) and Barcy Cordrey (editor).
Cory Hamscher has done art work for books such as Marvel's X-Men Forever and Avengers Academy and Image Comics' Supreme.
Ross Hughes has done digital color work for books such as DC's Hawk and Dove and Deathstroke and Image Comics' Youngblood.
We are very proud that three time Eisner nominee, Joe Eisma did the cover for the first issue. Joe is the artist and co-creator on the wildly popular Morning Glories by Image Comics.
Look for Issue #1 March 2014!
Since you can't get enough of a good thing, we decided to do a variant cover for our first issue. The variant cover was done by legendary comic artist Darryl Banks.
Darryl Banks and Ron Marz shaped DC's Green Lantern universe for an entire generation. Darryl and Ron created the character of Kyle Raynor and created several massive story arcs including Emerald Twighlight.
As a show of respect to this great creative team, we had Darryl re-imagine the classic cover of Green Lantern #49 this time with our own big bad, Deth Monger.
Look for Issue #1 variant at select retailers in March 2014!
