Sold Out Stained Goes Back for a Second Printing
With the continued demand for STAINED #1, 451 will be going back to print! I am thrilled to share the new cover for the second print, by artist Victoria Gedvillas - check out her Instagram (226K Followers) and YouTube page (148K followers/ 5.4M views). Tori is a watercolorist and a regular at conventions and this is her debut cover in the comic book industry.
The book is currently available for order through Diamond (APR178213) and will be in stores June 28th.
Meet Emma London: recovery artist and bounty hunter for hire. She is strong, possibly indomitable, and did we mention...part machine.
Emma is the type that dives head first into things that most wouldn’t and shouldn’t. Those dark places that no one else will go to track down the subhuman criminals lurking in the underbelly of society and brings them to justice. STAINED first comes to life with Emma trying to take down a pair of international diamond smugglers, but her story explodes forward when initially what was thought to be a hunt for a priceless painting with a record high bounty, leads her to something darker and more monstrous than she could have ever imagined.
