Phew! It's only taken us seven years to put this together, but a print version of our two-part graphic novel "Shades" is finally a reality! Written by me and illustrated in full colour by Harsho Mohan Chattoraj, Volume 1 is available now, either from IndyPlanet.com (http://www.indyplanet.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=4753) or from our very own Broken Voice Comics (http://www.brokenvoice.co.uk) website. The concluding part (Volume 2) should be available in just over a month.

So, what's Shades all about? Set (mostly!) in the present-day UK, Shades is an action/adventure story, with a just a hint of the superheroic about it! It poses the question “what makes a hero?” while also examining the traits and characteristics which have come to define the British national character. Sounds heavy? Never fear - we've also packed it full to the brim with fisticuffs and explosions!

Previously serialised online, readers have already dubbed Shades “a Watchmen for a modern audience” and “a British Watchmen”. All very flattering obviously but, to be honest, we're just as proud of this quote: "super enjoyable from start to finish!"
