RELEASE THE DRAGON!
MSCA member Dale Martin has released a new ongoing comic series with local writer Brad Starnes: THE DRAGON TEMPLAR!
Set in the depths of the Middle Ages, during the era of the Crusades, this medieval adventure comic follows a band of Knights Templar, Rome’s agents on the ground as the Universal Church tries to lay claim to the Holy Land. The band of knights deploy their talents for war protecting Rome’s interests and traveling pilgrims alike … all the while harboring in their midst a power they can’t fully understand!
The first issue is available now at 901 Comics (Memphis and Cordova), The Cellar Tabletop Games & Comics (Bartlett), and Quimby’s (Chicago), with more outlets to come soon! It is also available direct from the creators at www.dragontemplar.com.
Dale Martin is a Memphis-based artist, writer, and publisher, best known for his Watusi the Talking Dog comics (both in print and online). He’s been handcrafting comics featuring his original creations since the 1980s, and doesn’t see any reason to stop now! (He’s also the editor and a contributing artist to our MSCA zine– The Good, The Bad, And The Sketchy.)
Brad Starnes was first published in the 901 Comics Anthology (teamed with his brother, artist Skoot Starnes), and has written comics in a variety of genres since then.
12-page black & “white” (interiors are on ivory paper) comic w/full-color cover; 6.75×10.25″ trim.
We’ll have an upcoming interview with Dale and Brad on the Drawing Funny podcast soon- stay “tooned”!
