The Tower Chronicles is a new comic book series produced by Legendary Comics, featuring the creative minds of Simon Bisley and the legendary Matt Wagner.

‘The Tower Chronicles’ Advance Preview

In an age of Vampires and Zombies, heroes who roam the night protecting us from ghouls and goblins are as necessary as Batman and Superman.

The Tower Chronicles, from writer Matt Wagner (Mage, Grendel) and 2000 Ad artist Simon Bisley, hits comic racks this week from Legendary Comics. This supernatural action-adventure story introduces us to John Tower. Much like Blade, he focuses extra-normal villains. These aren’t super-powered villains, but rather those creatures you’d find in a Grimm fairytale, on HBO’s True Blood or on the CW’s Supernatural.

The first twelve pages focuses on one of Tower’s hunts. He’s chasing down a seemingly innocent woman as though he’s a robber – except this robber leaps over objects with the grace of an acrobat. He also carries around enough rope to tie up his prey or use the rope as Wonder Woman would use her lasso.
