"It all started when I decided to write a sci-fi book" - says Max - "but I then moved onto a multimedia presentation online, which I felt was more contemporary. Also not many have published a web comic with an original soundtrack, so it's all very exciting."
We cannot reveal much about the story line but we can report what the author had to say about it:
"The Dark is the place where I put all my faith in. Where it all starts, ends and comes back to what we call life. It's a place that I am still discovering and it is fascinating to write about it, it's an adventure that I live whilst talking about it or writing a song about it. I don't want to reveal much at this stage. There will be four chapters initially, I have material for another four chapters and I wrote a song for each book that complements the comic itself. If you immerse into the writing and the music you might find yourself in somewhere special or at least that is what I hope."
The first part of the online saga will debut on 12-12-12:
"I could have taken a dedicated website for this project but I felt it goes very well with my hobbies and passions and should be shared on a website that talks about comics, super-heroes and such. Irishspawn.com was a no brainer, it fits the purpose perfectly."
'The Dark' will be available to read and listen online comic style, on PDF, on HD video via YouTube and also available on iPhone, Android and iPad.
"It was important for me to go multimedia and to offer the work to as many devices as possible."
