Resurrection Men Newsletter #2 – Meet the creators Part 2

Hi everyone, hope that you are all well.

This week I am extremely excited as all the pencil art for the first issue of Resurrection Men has been created and we are on track to having the finish art work completed by the end of February which I can’t wait to share with you all.

The image above is a panel from page 2 of the first issue where we see the pivotal moment that James uses his power for the first time. What power? Read on…

So what is Resurrection Men?

Resurrection Men tells the story of a man who discovers he can raise the dead with the touch of his hand and the lengths that people will go to control that power.

So who else is helping with this little endeavour of mine? Last week I introduced you to the talented art of Rory Donald and myself but a comic is not made by one or two people. So with that in mind I would like to introduce you to the letterer and editor of Resurrection Men.

Not content to be the writer of Griff Gristle and co-creator of Papercuts and Inkstains to name a few, Rob Jones is a prolific letterer as well.

Working with Rob is a pleasure and if you are ever looking for a letterer I would highly recommend his work to which he has been nominated for!

If you would want to read more about what Rob is up to you can check out his work here;

And this is Dan Hill, multitalented man of many a work including writing Go Home and editing Chum and Deer Editor.

I have really enjoyed working with Dan as he is a solid sounding board and has a keen eye for storytelling. Again I would happily pass on his name to anyone looking to get their work edited which I encourage everyone to do if you are looking to invest in a larger comic story and want to ensure your vision gets across.

You can check out his work here;

So that is the whole Resurrection Men team and I can not wait to share with you all the advance previews of the work that comes with being a member of this mailing list.

But I still need your help if this story is ever going to get printed up! I need you to spread the word!

This story is my passion and I intend to only release a quality comic when it us ready but I need your support to get this off the ground. If you know someone who is interested in stories such as Hellboy and Y – The Last Man, get them to sign up to the newsletter at the following link – eepurl.com/cyzCkn.

If you want to hear more frequently about the going ons of Resurrection Men, join the twitter conversation at twitter.com/nspauluk and remember to share the hash tag #raisethedead.

All the best,

Resurrection Men is coming! Will you raise the dead?


Introduction to Resurrection Men #1

Hello and welcome to the N.S. Paul newsletter or as we say in Scotland, nice to meet you pal, how ye daein?

First off, I wanted to say big thank you for taking the time to join me in my journey in creating my first, four issue 22 page comic, Resurrection Men.

The image above is a fragment of the amazing cover for issue 1 of RM just to give you a taste of what is to come.

So what is Resurrection Men?

Resurrection Men tells the story of a man who discovers he can raise the dead with the touch of his hand and the lengths that people will go to control that power.

Still interested? Read on…

The artwork for RM is underway now for the first issue and I am stoked! Seeing your characters come to life is an amazing experience and it also helps when you have such a talented team working with you.

And that is the most important thing I’ve learnt about creating comics. The team. Without the team, this little endeavour of mine would be nothing.

So on that note, I would like to introduce you to the folks who are creating Resurrection Men.

Rory Donald of Reach Illustration is the man of the hour with his clever use of bold colour, strong lines and shadows. A skilfully visual storyteller, Rory has taken what was fundamentally words on a page without context and has created an entire universe. His previous work includes Griff Gristle and Pigs Might Surf to name a few.

I can not praise Rory enough as he has really brought so much to Resurrection Men that wasn’t there before.

If you would want to read more about what Rory is up to you can check out his work here;

And this is me, Nicholas Stephen Paul or just N.S. Paul for short. I’ve been writing comics for ten plus years but during the summer of 2016 I decided to take one of my ideas and bring it to life.

Resurrection Men is my first foray into the larger comic world though I have been fortunate to work with some other artists through two Reddit Comic Collaboration groups. If you are interested in comics I recommend you check out the Reddit here.

So that’s half the team. Next email I’ll introduce you to our wonderful letterer and editor. Currently Resurrection Men is half way through being penciled but it won’t be long till it’s ready to go live.

So if you know someone that might be interested in horror/thriller/family drama about a man who can bring back the dead with the touch of his hand and how he tries to protect his son from nefarious individuals who wish to wield such power, send them this page. Or better yet, send them this link so they can sign up to the mailing list – eepurl.com/cyzCkn.

If you want to hear more frequently about the going ons of Resurrection Men, join the twitter conversation at twitter.com/nspauluk and bring some life to the party.

All the best,

N.S. Paul
