(what is) FROST

In the thread before i was saying that my collaboration with Chris Roberson was not only about his writing, and my art, on The Shadow series from Dynamite.
Mr. Roberson is also the publisher, with his MonkeyBrain Comics, of FROST, my new creator-owned project.

First a brief synopsis:

"Meet FROST. His name is spoken in whispers from deep within the American intelligence community--a cypher, a walking secret, and the ultimate weapon against global terror. In the far-flung fields of battle against America's enemies--a world where those who would protect us from harm must often trade in violence, deception and betrayal--there are those who strike a deadly balance between order and chaos. In this struggle, information and secrecy are as lethal as the gun, and where the ultimate practitioners of the military arts engage the enemy in the shadows..."

FROST is written by Brandon Jerwa (Vampirella, Battlestar Galactica) and Eric Trautmann (Red Sonja, Flash Gordon, The Shield), and drawn by me, it's a Military/Espionage Action Thriller series, 6 books plus a issue #0.

This last one, the #0 is already on ComiXology, and it's FREE (but not forever, so go and download it ASAP)

It's obviously a great book, but if you don't believe me, then believe on this first review:

FROST #0 reviewed by The Lottery Party

FROST has even it's Facebook page, where you'll be able to follow the production process, press releases, interviews, art, etc. so "like" it!

That's all, well, not all, there is a lot more to talk about, the rest of the team, the series itself, some preview art, but there will be a time for everything, in the meantime enjoy FROST #0 FREE on ComiXology!
