So in case you haven’t seen it already, here is the official cover of Lightning Strike Presents… #1.
Based on the story Monkey of Oz by Liam Browne and Daryl Cox, this beautiful cover was done by Oisin Roche. Its been a hectic few weeks for us here at Lightning Strike so we’d like to think everyone for their unending support, in particular, @FPDublin @SubCitycomics & @TheBigBang_ (who you can all follow on Twitter) so sharing our poster’s in their shops and to ICN and Comic Buzz for posting about the cover.
We’ve also got some more news regarding this summer’s conventions, which you can read about by clicking here.
So in the run up to Kapow! and the launch of our first issue, we’ve decided to do a few video blogs so you guys could catch up with ou wonderful writers and artists and see how things are progressing. First up we talk to Ciaran Marcantonio and Cormac Hughes, the lads behind our steampunk epic, A Clockwork Universe. Enjoy!
So first of all thank you to everyone who voted. We were receiving them in the hundreds and it was amazing to gauge the response and support from all of you guys reading this. Also a massive shout-out to the guys iver at Irish Comic News for helping us out with the competition. So without further ado, we here at Lightning Strike are proud to announce that the winner of our poll and story arc featuring on the cover of our first issue of ‘Lightning Strike Presents…’ is:
Monkey of Oz! Written by Liam Browne with illustration by the very talented Daryl Cox.
