A Brand New Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Comic Series
Comic writer Alan Holloway and Artist Ed Doyle were chatting about the much missed Starblazer comics. They were like Commando comics, as in 64 page, black & white, digest size single stories, but aimed at science fiction fans. As they have worked together on several projects (including the weekly "The Whole Twoth" strip) they decided that creating a similar comic would be fun, and out of that SENTINEL was born
The sold out first issue introduced isue sevens heroes has been reprinted finally, with a brand new cover from Ed Doyle. Ian Beadle has also updated his original cover which is now inside the back cover.
100BC, and the Roman Empire uses enslaved dragons to fight in the arena. A small band, however, plan to revolt and find their mythical homeland...

After three successful and critically lauded issues, it's time for SENTINEL to move into the horror genre (after all, we did put in on the masthead).
"Misty Moore" is a 64 page, black and white, digest size, square bound comic featuring a complete story.
It's 1982. Misty moves to a new town and is horribly bullied at her new school. At her wits end, she is confronted by Janet, the spirit of another bullied girl who committed suicide 30 year earlier. Janet offers Misty the chance to get revenge on the bullies, but how far will Misty go?
Inspired by UK girls comics of the 1970s and 80s, Misty Moore is dark, atmospheric and highly emotional. Rather than cheap scares, it delivers a compelling story, well rounded characters and art that will have you looking over your shoulder as you read it.
Written by Alan Holloway, the Interior art is from our new artist Ian Beadle, with the standard cover from SENTINEL Co-founder Ed Doyle. The limited cover art is from UK artist Neil Sims, who will be returning to SENTINEL in the future.
Featuring in the fifth issue of SENTINEL - Kazana The Slayer is a FULL COLOUR sword and sorcery yarn that has been fully painted by Sentinel co-creator Ed Doyle.
It was originally published in A4 format over a decade ago, so writer Alan Holloway rewrote the script whilst Ed chopped it up and formatted it to fit the Sentinel digest format.
The result is a great adventure with plenty of blood and action that is the perfect way to round off the year.
Bad Kitty is a fun story and we're honoured to welcome renowned artist Morgan Gleave to the fold.
In addition, we have borrowed some design aspects from the band Cats In Space, who are AMAZING.
It's a fun caper where a rich dog needs protection from a cat who's knocking off his brothers one by one for the way they treated him as a kitten adopted into their family. Carlos Harrison is the master thief dragged in the middle, hoping for a cool payoff if he can only keep his client, Rover, alive.
Hell on Harry Hewson
After the rousing success of our sixth issue, the silly and stupendous "Bad Kitty", we're bringing back the stars of our very first issue, space couriers Doyle Braddock and RHLSTP. Issue one was such a hit and we loved doing it, so another rousing buddy action comedy was just asking to be made.
This time round, they guys have got their customer rating up to four stars - life is sweet! A simple job on Harry Howson's World turns out to be anything but, though. When their ship is swallowed by the planet (hey, these things happen!) they have to venture into the underworld (sounds safe, huh?) and battle all sorts of monsters from Greek legend
Superheroes are old hat, right? If we're honest, it's incredibly hard to do anything new in the genre. "To Be A Hero" is our best attempt to take superheroes and take them on a fun, action packed path you really wouldn't expect.
We haven't tried to reinvent anything, but we have produced something we're pretty confident you won't have seen before. It WILL be fun, fast paced and will make you want to read it again straight away. We could describe the story in detail, but it would be impossible without spoiling the narrative, so it's a secret, a secret that plays out over SIXTY FOUR glorious pages.
