FLARE graduates from comics to prose anthology
From the official Pro Se press release . . . . .
Pro Se Productions, through arrangement with Heroic Publishing, brings one of independent comics’ brightest stars to life in prose. FLARE-THE ANTHOLOGY is now available in print and digital formats.
“Flare is here,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “and Pro Se is definitely pleased to have her. Not only is this anthology due to the work of author Barry Reese bringing Heroic and Pro Se together and his stellar LIBERTY GIRL novel, but it is also the second book in the Heroic/Pro Se imprint, but in no way the last. FLARE is one of our last books of 2016, but heralds 2017 in as the year where multiple Heroic properties will find new life in prose, and who better to lead the way than three fantastic authors writing about The Shining Goddess of Light!””
From the four color pages of Heroic Publishing, The Shining Goddess of Light flies into all new Pulp Adventures! FLARE features three stories starring the most dazzling and powerful two fisted beauty ever to grace a comic book page. Born as a result of an evil experiment, the electrifying Terri Feran takes to street and sky and beyond as Flare, protecting justice and carrying on a legacy of heroism dating back to World War II. Authors Lou Mougin, Brendan Jones, and M. Hadley take Flare from the comic page and thrust her into New Pulp! Enemies that threaten the entire universe! Secrets and ghosts from her past threatening the future of all! Darkness gathering to quench the light! And only FLARE stands in the way! FLARE, an anthology from Pro Se Productions in conjunction with Heroic Publishing.

SINK #3 (Comix Tribe, December 20, 2017 release date) “A Head Full Of Wasps”. Story by John Lees. Art and Colours by Alex Cormack. Letters by Shawn Lee. Logo by Tim Daniel. Sink #3 will make you see red. Blood red. It’s splashed all over the pages of this story, seeping into each and every panel, even before the violence begins. “A Head Full Of Wasps” speaks to the buzzing that occurs in so many brainpans in these troubled and violent times - - and the red that is visualized when some of us experience injustice, brutality, cruelty, or abuse and then seek retribution, revenge, and bloody justice. If only everyone could read this story, and then remember it whenever their cheeks flush with anger - - and think before they act. Yeah, I’m a pipe dreamer. I also just set out to write a review. Don’t know why I’m treating SINK #3 like this is a morality fable. Have you ever read a simple but well-written story that leads to your thinking outside the box about oth…
