About the Graphic Novel:
“Legend has it that small fragments of Death’s original element still exist scattered across the universe. If you recover one, Death will be at your mercy. A man need not fear death if Death fears him.” – Captain A. Moros
There’s a tale passed down in popular mythology that tells of an artifact left by Death himself in the mortal realm. If a mortal were able to harness this artifact, they’d be able to use it as a bargaining tool to obtain immunity from Death. This artifact is referred to by believers as the Shard of Immortality. Many have (ironically) dedicated their lives to tracking down the artifact, and as with most myths, no one has succeeded. This has not, however, stopped those left with the dedication, foolishness, and strive for adventure from continuing to seek it.
The graphic novel follows the adventures of Zander, Alvar, Eris, and Moros as they traverse the land and sea in search of this shard, discovering far more than what was ever told in myth along the way.

Special thanks to those individuals who have helped me (and continue to help me) in seeing The Immortal’s Shard through.
Notable thanks to the WMB forum community, who have been both supportive, and have helped advertise, in addition to allowing me to bounce even the silliest of ideas off of them.
Another huge thanks to my family, especially my brother, Karel Felipe, who has likewise been very supportive since the very start, helping keep me motivated even in down times.
Finally, another huge thanks to my best friend, Ashly Streator, for likewise being there since the beginning, offering advice for both art and writing. She is an amazing artist, and an even more amazing person, who also happens to be working on a graphic novel of her own. If you don’t follow it, ya damn well should! (More details to come and stuff.)
There are too many people who have helped me in some form to list here, but I still extend my thanks to whoever may have been left out. Thanks again, everyone, and I’ll be doing my best to not disappoint!
