New comic book launches in Belfast

February 10th, 2013 by Owen Quinn Comments

Forbidden Planet Belfast saw the launch of Noe: The Savage Boy, a brand new comic book adventure from the trio if artist Stephen Downey, writer Mal Coney and editor Robert Curley.

Noe is a young teenager whose village is wiped out in a pirate raid and he finds himself a slave in a strange land. A God fearing boy, Noe will be changed forever by events as he battles to survive.

The turn out at Saturday’s event was a strong one and shows that there is a lot of support for new undiscovered talent in this country. All three creators were joined by Captain Jack Sparrow and one of his pirate henchmen and the event was a resounding success with the unveiling of the new variant cover of issue one.

Mal tells us that things will get a lot darker for Noe in the second issue which should be out by the summer.

He has an unhealthy interest in Doctor Who, classic TV and Star Wars, he also hangs around with the Emerald Garrison far toooo much. Is it any wonder he fits in at FTN so well? Find Owen at the
