It has been a while since my last update, but that has not been for a lack of activity. My efforts have simply been focused on my latest project. Recently, the art was completed, which means we are in the final stages. It is therefore time to announce:
Detective Cedric Dustin is a cop with a future: clever, cocky, and opportunistic. So when he receives an anonymous letter accusing a major financial figure of fraud, he jumps at the opportunity to advance his position. As he investigates, however, he discovers that he’s not the only recipient of a letter from the mysterious “L”, and he becomes entangled in the chaos that arises when dark truths are brought to light.
The Letters of the Devil is a whodunit graphic novel. Mystery is a passion of mine, and one of my greatest desires is to see more English-native cartoonists take on the challenge of tackling a genre that is underrepresented in the medium.
The current plan is to release this work as a digital graphic novel, but I am also investigating print options. Either way, expect a more official announcement in the first quarter of 2017.
