Welcome to Derinkuyu, an underground city that once housed up to 20,000 people. In the Cappadocia region, famous for its cave dwellings and underground villages, Derinkuyu stands out for sheer size and complexity. Locals began digging in the 500s BCE. The city consists of over 600 doors, each of which can be closed from the inside. Each floor could be closed off as well. And just to make attacking completely impossible, the entire city was deliberately built without any logic. Its maze-like layout makes navigating the city nightmarish for unfamiliar invaders.

Evolution of a new comic book character

Here are some amazing sketches done by Jose Holder, the artist for my book Fallen.  Fallen is a vigilante-type, no powers but completely dedicated to his perception of justice.  Like Batman but without the gadgets or Punisher but without the penchant to shoot everyone he meets.  His life changed after a violent childhood incident at a carnival so you see some carnival elements worked into his costume.  But anyone curious to see the progression from initial concepts (black and blue lined) to experiments and refining (sepia) to final sketches (colored logo) can see these three pieces done by Jose.

I’ll be showing some more pieces as work continues and you’ll learn more about Fallen over the next few months.  

Hope you like these.  As a comic writer, nothing is more incredibly then seeing something in your head come to life on the page—first as a full story and then as the visuals start to form.  These sketches are so bacon.

The facial hair in the first round was intriguing—ultimately it didn’t work for the story so we went with clean shaven.  The look in the bottom left of the sepia page still haunts me—that’s Fallen as he was in my head for months before Jose pulled him out and put him in a drawing.  The stylized logo and outfit that emerged in the final sketches are perfect.  This is why I love a collaboration like a comic book—I could have never come up with the logo/outfit but they are utterly perfect for the character and story.  You’ll find out why later!

HAPPY CANADA DAY! For Canada Day, read this short Superhero Girl comic I made last year for the True Patriot anthology! It was based on a true experience I had when someone asked me “what makes Superhero Girl a Canadian superhero?” and I was like uhhhhh?

The League of Villainous Canadian Stereotypes was my boyfriend Tim’s idea. He is a great idea man! 

Enjoy my Canadian comic and have a great Canada Day! I am celebrating by working a lot. ;)

I love Superhero Girl by faitherinhicks
