Written by David A J Berner and illustrated in full colour by artist Harsho Mohan Chattoraj, Shades (http://www.brokenvoice.co.uk/shades%20surround.html) tells the story of a group of heroes in the UK, struggling to come to terms with their role in late 20th Century Britain; a Britain still haunted by the loss of Empire.

Chapter 5 (titled Without Wings (http://www.brokenvoice.co.uk/Comics%20files/Shades/Volume%201/Chapter%205/shades%20ch05%20credits.html)) is described by its creators as a turning point for the story. “Up to this point the story has been mainly about introducing the key characters,” explains Berner. “But now we’ll begin to see some of the early plot threads come together.”

Against the backdrop of a break-in at the British Museum, the story has so far seen retired tailor Stanley Miller and his grandson Sunil meet a former WW2 fighter pilot, a mystical figure known as The Shaman and a flame-haired warrior woman called Boo. Berner promises that Chapter 5 (http://www.brokenvoice.co.uk/Comics%20files/Shades/Volume%201/Chapter%205/shades%20ch05%20credits.html) will reveal a little more about this motley group and answer one of the book’s early questions: just who was behind Stan’s abduction in Chapter One?
