Synopsis: The transcontinental railroad was going to bridge the East to the West and usher in a new age of prosperity along the frontier. But something’s gone wrong. A crew of rail workers has disappeared, and settlements along the line are falling silent. The railroad hires Nathanial Holden and Ezekiel Grey to search for answers. What they find instead is a trail of bodies and a quiet town on the verge of annihilation.
Here’s another sketch cover for Frontier Graveyard. Enjoy.
This is one of the sketch covers commissions from the successful Kickstarter campaign we had back in May for Frontier Graveyard. I want to give special thanks to David Furr for making that campaign happen. He is a great writer and a better friend and I wish him the best.
My family is coming over for the holidays and it’s time for my to finish this in the final stretch. I have the featured panel to draw with one additional. Then I have to finish rendering the rest of the issue which is about 5 panels or so.
A few people asked why the video I made of me working on this project was not on my site and I really did not have an answer. I will post the video soon in a new section of the site labeled “Videos”.
Thank you and stay tuned.
This story is still in the early phases but everyone I show the pages to love them. So why aren’t the pages on the site yet? Well, you just have to wait. OSN is near completion of the first half of volume one. Writer and co creator Marcell Dupree and I plan on having issue one done by the end of February 2017. Until then, I’ll try to sneak a few pages or to you ;-).
