“I am excited to bring Fearless dawn to a full-color series,” says creator Steve Mannion,” this is a dream project and I’m having a blast.”
“This is a great opportunity to showcase one of the great undiscovered comic illustrators of our time,” says publisher Frank Forte. “Steve’s dedication to the medium is unsurpassed. His pages are just a marvel to look at.”
Steve Mannion’s amazing artwork is a beautiful homage to classic comics of yesteryear, and it brings to mind the timeless styles of artists that include Wally Wood, Will Elder, and Robert Crumb. Page layouts vary in style as well, bringing back memories of old Archie Comics, to stuff you see as recently as Eric Powell’s The Goon!
