History of The Shadowed City

Shadows of the city

In 1993 I created a three arc story that would span three types of mediums: film, radio, and comicbook. Shadows of the city was to star three assassins. One was blind which would be told as an old style radio drama. Next was deaf and would be told as a silent movie and last the mute as an action comic.

Due to lack of funds we never worked on the any of them and saved the story for later use. After working for googo studios up in the Bronx, I wanted to film something and the itch to film a silent movie came back. I filmed Shadows as a series of short action clips to show before feature films.

Not happy with most of the film footage, I stopped the film only making a short out of all the film we had. The silent film look wasn’t working for me after so many attempts. I decided to dump the silent film look and opt to make the shadows an online comicbook.

Now after nearly 15 years. I am pleased to bring you Shadows of the city! Our first full comicbook for your enjoyment, we will also be showing the short flick “Hunting the Hacker” which was one scene out of the whole Shadows of the city film.
