Roundeyes in The Sanctuary reading a Duke Nukem graphic novel

"Stealing hope" here's page 29 from Tomb of the Undead. I hesitate to explain what any metaphors or stylistic techniques are in the writing before you can really read the first act, but "hope" is embodied by the "artifact" which is pretty obviously stated in earlier scenes. I think in one scene stares directly at the artifact and says "This is hope."

In any case, in this scene everyone is talking about reclaiming the artifact, and so, "stealing hope" was an appropriate title to me.

Anyhow - I hope you like the page and maybe the scene, too. Things will pick up very shortly - the first act is all about introducing characters and setting everything up - the best stuff out there does it with action and awesomeness.

Nothing has exploded, but put yourself in Casey's shoes - the man lost his job after bombing a presentation in front of an auditorium full of potential investors. In anybody's regular life, these are emotionally devastating and conflicting moments - it just seems that these days people have to dangle from a helicopter while an atom bomb goes off to be considered action packed.

Speaking of action packed:

A Duke Nukem graphic novel?

A comic/graphic novel would be good and probably more likely to happen than a novel. A few recent games have comics: Assassin's Creed, Fallout New Vegas and the upcoming Deus Ex Human Revolution.

Talking Comics with Tim | Nate Neal

Tim O'Shea

Nate Neal‘s first graphic novel, The Sanctuary, is a considerably quirky work on multiple levels. It’s a silent graphic novel, it sports an introduction by Dave Sim, and as I found out in this interview, Neal initially wanted the book to have an wordless title. Publisher Fantagraphics describes the book as exploring “the primal mysteries and sordid inner workings of a Paleolithic cave-dwelling tribe, creating an original ‘silent’ reading experience by using symbols instead of words.”

The publisher offers folks a 15-page preview in order for consumers to get a small taste of the story. Neal also offers some unique marketing videos as well as other samples at his blog.

Give Tony Harris $60,000 to Complete 'Roundeye for Love' Graphic Novel
Andy Khouri

Is $60,000 too high a price for what will almost certainly be the best work of a comic book artist's career? In some cases, perhaps, but surely not when it comes to Tony Harris. The co-creator and illustrator of some of American comics' most beloved titles, Starman and Ex-Machina, Harris is an artist whose craft has only improved with time, and he's ready to put all his knowledge and skill into a dream project that's been in development for more than a decade: Roundeye for Love. But he needs our help.

Check after the jump for Tony Harris' filmed pitch as well as stunning artwork from Roundeye for Love.
