The Night Owl Society is a 3-issue limited series coming from IDW in 2017. Issue #1 was successfully Kickstarted last year. I write and Pius Bak (http://pijus.deviantart.com/) does the art. Artwork for issue #2 is in process now, and I'll post more artwork as it becomes available. Feedback is always welcome. And, you can check us out on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/nightowlsociety), follow us on Twitter (https://twitter.com/Night_Owl_Comic) and, if you want updates sent to your inbox, please sign up for our mailing list (http://eepurl.com/b3LXEH).

David is a student at St. Cuthbert's School. When his best friend is killed by a mob boss, the police won't do anything about it. So, David takes matters into his own hands. He rounds up a group of misfits and tries to take down the mob without getting killed or grounded. It's The Breakfast Club meets The Sopranos in an exciting action-adventure comic.

Here is a new page from issue #3. The Night Owl Society takes place in Dallas, Texas, and my artist Pius Bak, lives in Lithuania. So, he uses reference photos I send him, or that he finds online to make the settings authentic, and to work in the occasional landmark into the background.
