Ashes of the Immortals

Travel to the far reaches of the galaxy to a distant world around a dim sun where science has managed to conquer death itself. Meet Rookie Investigator Nos as he is handed his first case since becoming a Constable for his District: The first murder anywhere on the planet since the scientists of his world discovered the secret to immortality. It’s first death in a over a thousand years, but will it be the last?

Read a four-page sample of Ashes of the Immortals!

Artist Matthew Childers meanwhile, does a superb job bringing this retro world to life! Mixing the classic lines of a Sean Philips with a slightly cartoonish air of a Darwyn Cooke or Bruce Timm, the tone for AiP is just perfect, capturing the classic pulp feel but giving it enough of a contemporary air to stop it feeling derivative. A large part of this is down to the exceptional colour work on show. Every screen is rendered with vintage hues that give the whole thing a sublime retro vibe, while the vibrancy of the digital colouring make every page leap off the screen at the same time.
