I'm so excited about the latest project I'm working on. I'm teaming up with writer James Goldberg to create a comic book, The Campaign.
The premiss is, what if the Ottoman Empire never fell, instead it became a major world power.
The story begins with the death of Sultan Mehmet V. The entire empire mourns the far too early departure of their beloved leader. He was only fifty-eight.
But to his family it means even more, not only do they have to deal with the lost of their father, but one of the sons will become the next Sultan. The throne isn't pasted down to the eldest son, but rather to the son who gains the majority vote in the now up coming election. To ensure unity throughout the nation, the remaining sons will be executed.
The following are concept sketches of the oldest son, Murad.
