UNA the Blade in The Pyre (Part One)
An army, too large to resist, is marching upon an ancient port city. Its walls and towers stand like solemn sentinels in vigil, their shadows lengthening one final time. In the distance, the wheels of twilight technology move across the sands, singular in their purpose. As the citizens load on to ships, desperately fleeing this dread advance, the buzzards circle like black flags, overhead.
A few will not leave, however. Having too much to lose, or having lost it all already, a few will remain and face the coming night, together.
I wrote and illustrated this comic over the course of a week. Please note that whilst I did that, I own none of the characters or the setting. This is most definitely an unsolicited fan comic. Una the Blade is helmed by Steve LeCouilliard and has a team of wonderful artists working on the project as we speak. You can find examples of the great work being done, over here: http://unatheblade.tumblr.com/
