12/9/2014 Our Journey Begins with our first COVER!

Well it has been a long journey from me having fun creating fantasy OCs for my favorite 80’s properties to where we are today.  I started making original characters around 2006 and a few years back thought hey I have enough characters and stories to go with them that I could easily spin them off into their own world.  And that’s what we’ve done.  I welcome you to the planet of Emphyria where our story takes place.   Many well known characters now live here together some in peace and some not so much.  Many will recognize Spy-Fly as one of the Winners of the former He-man.org fan staction contest held by the brilliant sculptor and illustrator Thomas Tolman.  We will actually see Spy-Fly right away as he is a main player in the first several issues.  Another winner of Thomas’ staction contest is Wraptor who will eventually be making himself known in the world of Emphyria.  We also have Skaldor of course, our main hero, and Unicra, Ickthia, Thug0bug… the list goes on and on.

Over the following weeks we will be revealing a page a week of this exciting new comic.  New pages will be posted on Tuesdays.  I have to thank Jazyl Homavasir and Santosh Pillewar for all they have contributed to the pages to follow.  Jazyl is our line artist,  I write, and Santosh is our colorist.  I’d like to also thank Eric Marshall who has been hard at work creating our bio cards which you’ll get to see in the hard copy of our preview issue once it comes out.

And finally I’d like to talk about the first page we have just posted.  The cover to our “0” issue illustrated by the amazing Dheeraj Verma!  In print form our zero issue will come with the first 6 pages of our comic, a bunch of exciting bio cards by Eric Marshall, and other fun information about the series.  So we wanted to capture both the events of the first few pages of the comic as well as have some of the characters featured in the bios present.   So here we have the mighty Thug-Bug front and center since the first pages of the comic deal with him substantially.  Also you’ll see Spy-Fly and Skaldor major players, as well as Ickthia and Wraptor who we will get to later as the comic goes on.

Please let us know what you think about this great cover in the comments below or on our facebook page which you can find at http://www.facebook.com/asongofheroes

What is “A Song of Heroes” about?

The mysterious and diversely populated planet of Emphyria has enjoyed many years of peace.  Yes small tribal conflicts arise from time to time, but it has been hundreds of years since the Dark Days or any global calamity.  The Hero Songs tell us of these dark times, weaving stories through song explaining the history of the planet during those bleak times. They tell us of the many heroes who walked the planet protecting it from evil forces.  However now in this time of peace it has been many years since such heroes have been needed or heard from.

Trouble simmers, however, in the form of the Red Wizard who has studied both the Hero Songs and Choas Songs in hopes of discovering the secrets of Emphyria.   What he thinks he has discovered could change the course of life on the planet all together and even then it only scratches the surface of the mysteries to be discovered in this magical land.  Meanwhile, while the Red Wizard seeks out the dark relics that will imbue him with the power he seeks, a hero rises to balance the forces on the planet.  Though this hero comes in an unlikely form he wields an ancient power and mantle well known through Emphyria, that of the mighty Skaldor.  These new battles, quests, and heroes will now inspire a new song to be sung.  A Song of Heroes!
