“This,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “has been a long time coming and, now that this first digest novel is here, there is so much more ahead, not just for Nightveil but for nearly the entire AC Comics pantheon. Bill Black and everyone at AC that we’ve worked with on this have not only been phenomenal, but they add a whole new energy to what we do, in a very positive way.

This is what Pro Se is all about!”

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…

Eventually escaping, he learns that the symbols of his office have since been turned into powerful relics used by the mystical community. On a search for the symbols of his station from which he draws power, the Sandman must deal with Constantine, go through Hell itself, and stop a deranged inmate of Arkham who suddenly has power and the sick mind to put it to use. Neil Gaiman likely needs no introduction if you’re familiar with Sandman. It’s his best known work and one of the few graphic novels ever to make the New York Times Bestselle…
