DELVER -- collecting issues #1-5

Co-Written by C.Spike Trotman and M.K. Reed

Art by Clive Hawken

DELVER is a new twist on the classic fantasy story and an epic adventure that examines modern social issues through the eyes of a tenacious teen from a small village who must navigate the uncertain world around her. Co-written by Iron Circus Comics founder C. Spike Trotman and Comics Writer MK Reed, with art by newcomer Clive Hawken.


“A beautiful read.” —A.V. Club


"DELVER Is a Dream Comic for DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Fans" —Nerdist


In this fantasy adventure story we follow Temerity Aster, a 15-year-old girl who lives with her large family in a small village of goat herders in the tiny hamlet of Oddgoat. The world she lives is shaken up when random doors to living dungeons appear, including one that has appeared in her cellar. 

Now her family must deal with the introduction of “Delvers”—adventurers who are looking to explore these dungeons and escape with treasure. Soon life for her and her family changes forever, and she must face two choices: abandon the only home she's ever known to carpet baggers and sellswords, or carve out a place for herself and her family in this new and dangerous world of delving.  


C. Spike Trotman was born in DC, raised in MD, and residing in IL, is the founder, owner, and editor-for-life of Iron Circus Comics, the Midwest's largest comics publisher. Her previous credits include "Templar, Arizona," "Yes, Roya," and "Poorcraft." Find what has utterly consumed her existence at, or wherever you buy good books.


MK Reed is the author of several graphic novels and fantasy comic series, including the Eisner nominated Science Comics: Dinosaurs and Penny Nichols. They live in Portland Oregon with their very tall husband and small, sassy dog.

Dracula: Son of the Dragon TPB


Dracula: Son of the Dragon -- original graphic novel
Written by Mark Sable
Art by Salgood Sam


Dracula: Son of the Dragon is part historical fiction, part horror fantasy and tells the blood-soaked epic of the real-life Vlad the Impaler’s transformation into the vampire Dracula.

Dracula: Son of the Dragon, the terrifying origin story of the man known as Dracula, reunites writer Mark Sable and artist Salgood Sam—the two first worked together on a short story adapting a Tori Amos song for the Eisner Award winning anthology Comic Book Tattoo.


How did 15th century ruler Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler, Vlad Drucul), the so-called “historical Dracula,” become the world’s most notorious vampire? As an adolescent in Wallachia, young Prince Vlad learns hard lessons in politics and betrayal and is held prisoner of the Ottoman Turks after being introduced to the Dark Arts at the infamous Scholomance in Transylvania. To survive he believes he must kill in the name of God in order to serve the Holy Roman Order of The Dragon—a very secret—but very real —society both Vlad and his father were members of—but at what cost? 


Mark Sable is a writer for print, stage and screen best known for his creator-owned comic books. Sable's first published work was Grounded (Image Comics) with artist Paul Azaceta, the tale of a teenager sent to a high school for superheroes where everyone has powers except him. The two also collaborated on Graveyard of Empires (Image Comics), about marines and Taliban teaming to fight a zombie insurgency in Afghanistan, which Sable is adapting for the screen. He is also the writer of Godkillers (Aftershock Comics) and The Dark (comiXology Originals) and is currently writing Miskatonic (Aftershock Comics).


Salgood Sam aka Max Douglas, has been making comics for about 30 years, his work has been published notably by Image, IDW/NMK, Marvel & DC, and outside of comics clients have included The Criterion Collection, Bravo TV, Nelvana Studios, Netflix and Fox among many others. Recently he’s been paying the bills as a designer on F is for Family, while hiding out from the pandemic with his wife in their downtown Montreal apt with three cats.


Dracula: Son of the Dragon [112 pages / color / on sale October 12 in bookstores and October 13 in comic shops / MSRP $19.99/$25.99 pbk / ISBN: 978-1-50672-442-3] is the latest release from the Dark Horse Books and comiXology print program.  This is the first time that the book will be available in print for customers in comic shops, bookstores, and libraries.
