Whispers in Necropolis is my vision of a horror anthology comic book.
Ever since I was a boy I've wanted to make my own comic book series. I remember my cousin and I trying to draw one out on notebook paper 20+ years ago. For years I’ve sat on ideas and on short stories that I've written. Just tucked away in the back of my mind or on an old computer. The problem I've had in the past was when I tell a person an idea or just sum up a story for them I don’t think that they’re getting the same visual as I see in my mind. The same scene being playing out. What better way to show the crowd exactly what’s going on in my head than having it literally drawn out on paper.
Whispers In Necropolis started printing in summer 2016. Since then three issues have been released with more on the way. The book had a very rough start but with each new issue the fan base and popularity grows and grows.
Each book consists of four unique and twisted short stories told by Theodosia, the ghastly "Storyteller". Plus one pinup poster drawn by talented artists from around the world. All stories and characters, including future ones, connect or mesh together in some way. It all takes place in Grimsmont City home of the Reapers football team.
