On the far side of the universe exists a planet called Mar. This is a peaceful world. A land of pacifists. But a shadow is moving closer to Mar. A race of conquerors known as the Tivians are headed toward this world of peace. And when they arrive, a young boy by the name of Sandr must make a choice.
Will he run, hide, surrender… or will he do something else?
Something entirely alien to his people.
Will he fight?
I love when creators send out previews! They usually send out a couple of pages, just enough to get me interested, enough to whet my appetite. All I want to do is post them here and say check these out! But then you read the rest of the email and find the “oh by the way please don’t post those”. Fact is it’s a common operating procedure. All publishers send out some preview stuff, most of the time we can’t share the actual files with you, sometimes they include images or preview pages we can post. Some publishers don’t even send out previews till the week the books come out!
This is one of those wonderful occasions where that isn’t the case! Paul Penna, writer/creator of Conqueror actually sent out pages that I can share with all of you!
You read the blurb up top, now look at the art from Kean Kennedy:
I know I usually post pages in a smaller size but I really wanted you to see these. It kills me that I had to convert these from tif files to jpg’s but my server wouldn’t let me post the tif. I think the art looks great and the story seems very interesting. I’ve spoken with Paul and he’s very excited about issue #1’s debut and say that he has lots more stories to tell in this universe.
