Dare Comics reveal Starmaker: Leviathan

Adam Hamdy and Dave Golding, the team that bought us the awesome hi-tech, superhero thriller The Hunter have now set their sights  the sci-fi genre with their upcoming comic  Starmaker: Leviathan.

I saw some preview pages for Starmaker at two comic conventions and the art was fantastic and huge leap from the art in The Hunter series (which was bloody good anyway).

I’m definitely looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of this as a I thought Adam and Dave made a great team on The Hunter.

For all the info check out the press release.


London, 3 December 2009 – Today, Dare Comics launches its new science fiction epic, Starmaker: Leviathan, on ITunes and Yudu.

Starmaker: Leviathan tells the story of Jacob Carter, and his efforts to expose a mind-blowing global conspiracy.

Writer and creator, Adam Hamdy, cannot wait for fans to see his new work.  “I am very pleased to see Starmaker come to life.  We’ve worked extremely hard to deliver a comic that is way out of the ordinary.  If pre-production reviews are anything to go by I think we’ve achieved our objective,” says Hamdy.

David Golding, the artist behind Dare Comics highly applauded first comic, The Hunter, has been brought over to Starmaker: Leviathan to inject his artistic genius into the work.

“David’s art work was instrumental in making The Hunter’s story so popular with fans.  He has developed a new realistic style for Starmaker that has taken the art to another level,” said Hamdy.
