It’s that time of the month again for the next installment of the Ex Occultus: Wakefield’s Journal series of stories. Basically, if you haven’t checked these out yet, these are off-shoots of the Ex Occultus series I write for Saint James Comics, which follows the exploits of famed 19th-century occultists and treasure hunters Wakefield and Hollander. These monthly (FREE) mini-adventures are drawn by various artists and attempt to fill in the gap between the full issues, shining more light on the characters and the world they live in.
Anyway, the newest story, entitled “A Drink with Friends,” is now available to read. The plot:
1875. During some downtime between adventures, Wakefield stops into a local pub and swaps tall tales with four friends, recounting their glory days in the world of the occult.
Written by myself and Jesse Young, and drawn by Chris Martinez, this is a fun little story that’s a bit of a departure from the more action-heavy entries so far. Check out the story here, and if you haven’t done so, here’s a list of the other Wakefield’s Journal stories, all available to read for FREE. FREE FREE FREE!
