We’ve briefly touched on Christopher Shy’s artwork when we talked about Soul Stealer but there’s more on offer in Exceptions to Life, the first of a trilogy of Silent Leaves graphic novels, set in a futuristic fantasy world. Despite this, it isn’t the first Silent Leaves story – Shy previously published a 44-page comic called The Last Bondsman.
IAN is a young woman who may be the only person who can save humanity from an invading robot army called the Prey. The Prey were originally beaten back by a mysterious group of synthetic humans called the Bondsmen, but now the Bondsmen have been destroyed and the Prey are back.
The big difference between Exceptions to Life and Soul Stealer is that Christopher Shy provides both art and story, showing that this incredible artist is also a dab hand with words.
