by ComixTribe

When he retired, Alex Thomas – formerly The Standard’s sidekick, Fabu-Lad – took on the mantle in his place, transforming The Standard from superhero to celebrity. But somewhere amidst all the sponsorship deals and reality TV shows, Alex lost sight of what Gilbert created The Standard to represent. Now, a young girl is missing, and The Standard has promised to find her. Can Alex Thomas become a hero once more? Or does fate have other plans for The Standard?

The Standard is the story of two different men from two different eras who share the same heroic legacy. In the past, The Standard was the world’s greatest superhero. Today, he is a celebrity with his own reality TV show. But when a catastrophic event brings the two generations into collision, The Standard is forced to ask if superheroes still have a place in today’s cynical world. The Standard is a six-part superhero miniseries written by John Lees and drawn by Jonathan Rector.

When Dragons Are Outlawed, Only Outlaws Will Have Dragons

DragonsFire exploded right in front of Holly as the Shellpoint Inn went up in a flash. The young veterinarian raised her cloak to protect her face and quickly ducked into the alley at her back. The flames roared past, but the intense heat still scorched her exposed skin; the acrid tang of her frizzing hair filled the winter morning air.  The small dragon perched on Holly’s shoulder cooed; it loved fire.

It seemed as though the whole town  was burning now.  Holly smudged tears from her eyes and dashed toward the far end of the alley, a single thought screaming in her mind as she ran:  How did we ever let it come to this?

Stephen D. Sullivan has written dozens of novels and stories in the fantasy, SF, adventure, horror, and detective genres. Very few of them are intentionally allegorical.

Walkabout Publishing has several of Stephen D. Sullivan eBooks available now at!
