Digital Spotlight: SANCTUARY
Written as a suspenseful tale with a little bit of added humor, the digital comic book series Sanctuary is an example of why 2012 is the year of the indie-comic creator. It brings originality to the industry and should be in every comic book readers’ pull list. The book is written and illustrated by Stephen Coughlin and published digitally by Slave Labor.
Readers will enjoy Coughlin’s creative take on the murder mystery genre. They will have no regrets investing in the characters. Despite the fangs, fur, and extra legs, the animal characters are just as human-or even more so-as their human counterparts. There’s a realistic quality about them that will appeal to readers.
From its exterior, the story appears cute and innocent but once the reader begins turning the pages, they’ll see something more dark and sinister in this adventure that contains funny moments that are skillfully plotted at the right places. The story is superb and brings something new to the comic book table with its impressive depth and complexity. Readers will not want to miss this series.
