Flashboy Max; Superking and the Quest for Pandora is a Cyberpunk story that has been ten years in the making! I am so excited to be releasing the story in paperback and on Kindle this August. Search it up on Amazon from August 2020.
Here it is: the official front cover reveal:
In a videogame world, there is a cyborg called Max who used to be the best Flashboy in the Simulation, until his headset was stolen. As a manipulator of the code, Max’s skills are in demand. The Flashboy is recruited by a mysterious mechanical woman called Violet and a screen-based avatar, known as Rieker. Their mission spans the real and virtual world: with mecha fights in the mountains, a heist on the National Cemetery and an ultra challenging boss fight in the simulated resort known as New South World. Max discovers a digital footprint, made by rogue artificial intelligences, that reveals he has unwittingly been part of a much bigger game all along. New game? Continue? A thrilling Cyberpunk adventure that starts on the boss level and escalates from there!
Those of you that know me well will know that my twin passions are writing and drawing. There is a lot of conceptual artwork that accompanies the novel, which I will be showcasing on Flashboy Max’s very own Instagram account @flashboymax. Follow @flashboymax on Instagram for a chance to see sooo much development artwork that I have never released publicly before! These files have been locked away on an external hard drive for ten years!!!
Supremely excited about this and I hope you will enjoy the Instagram content that supports and gives context to the story. Here’s a sneaky peak at some of the concept art that I created using Paint and Powerpoint waaaaaay back in 2009! I grew up with sidescrolling platformers, sprites and 2D graphics; the aesthetic of retro videogames totally inspired my artwork.
Thank you, as always, for your support and stay safe in this strange new normal….
