Earth and the planet Shuromij are plagued by Psychic monsters from Otherworldly Dimensions. Thanks to the Occult order of Nishin Genma who played God for millennia, the galaxy must endure their wicked legacy of extra-sensory experiments!

But stopping the disease spreading is a former disciple reborn as a Mutant Demigod through Baptism in the Black Fires of Hades itself. He is Ryuken Kage, the sole survivor of the ultimate weapon program, the Genma Visage!

His former masters sought to find the Cure. They created only a Disease. Now Ryuken will stop it Spreading!

15/08/2018:
Hello again, chaps.

Just been hard at work pummelling my keyboard and the notebook on my phone drafting the Lore stories. 1 and a half down, 1 and a half to go. Plus Character Bios. The first one I finished which is in fact the second story in line stretches to just under 38000 words, 37 A4 pages approximately 70-100 pages in a printed novel depending on font size and paragraph structure. The other two will be much shorter, in the range of 5500 to 10000 words maybe.

The reason the second story took an age (first drafted in about 3 hard working weeks) was because there was choice characters and topics touched upon within the Genma Visage universe that couldn't be done justice in minimal summary. That being said, the angle that I approach my story writing on these Lore stories is that whilst the Genma Visage story itself is quite dialogue driven, the written stories allows a form of air to breath by streamlining to dialogue to a single narrator telling the story (although certain sentences are written as if a character is speaking it.)

Otherwise chuck in the artwork I did for these stories and you're looking at another graphic novels worth of work to populate 140 odd pages give or take. I'm not sure if it will be going to print per say, as the original idea of doing these was to give my website itself a lot more dash. But yes the online store will still coincide with the Lore releases.Incidentally the stories might be presented in a stylised manner along with the artwork so that you're not just looking at a wall of text. Mind you the second story would be spread into chapters to make it more bite size.

So yeah, in due time I'd like to make a few posts about certain topics in which I go from my usual dead quiet self to "Holy Moly, Tom! Slow down! Gordon Bennett!" Nothing preachy in mind or dependant on daft wacky theories of course, but still, you might wanna get your seat belt on just in case.

Onto some good news,
London MCM October 18 convention has been booked and paid for!

23/07/2018:
London MCM in May was a good Show, and

Hello, chaps. It's been a while since I updated the newsreel a good spin. Generally, I've been peachy, and have entered 2018 on a relatively enthusiastic note. 2017 was a bit of a bummer for me personally for a trio of reasons, but I won't bore you with that unless requested. Basically, on the plus side, I did get the 5 books at their final stage for printing so that's that.

The first big news ahoy is that I've got
London MCM Booked for this May. So mucho huzzah for that!

So I've been working hard on the 3 Lore stories, of which the Art I dare say is blowing some of my older works right out of the water. It's coming along nicely, and It'll be great to have it done so I can have that official online store for the books up and make the Book 0 series more official. With that done then the long awaited Book 4, my new project Lust of the Marid, and Book 0 part 3 will follow en suite.

I do intend to entertain the Lore section as much as I can as it's certainly an arena for stories I had in mind that I feel are insufficient for actual Comic products but can still expand the universe all the same. I do have ideas to do one story that covers more on Grail, although Book 2 story the Kiss from a Rose does detail a fair amount of information for current reference. Likewise Zulie I'd love to do a story for. Her expanded backstory might be a high point of interest in the upcoming Book 4. Some of you may recall that I would have liked to have done a comic spinoff of Zulie. Asides with not coming up with sufficient material that would still be canon for the Genma Visage universe, I generally felt that the ideas at the time were shoehorning the series into the direction of Adventure Fantasy rather than the Action Horror series that it's meant to be. Genma Visage does celebrate festivities with enthusiasm and enjoys black humour and sarcastic jabs, but at the end of the day, an exploration of darkness is at the route of the narrative, and when things get serious I try to keep things streamlined in that direction. So a Zulie prequel has taken a bit of a shelf place for now, but I intend to return to it in full at some point. And besides, some of the ideas and the Adventure Fantasy elements are going straight into Lust of the Marid.

To keep things interesting, I can confirm the (work in progress) titles of the 3 Lore stories as follows.
- The Demonic Terror of the BloodFeud Nightmare
- The Battle of Bulru Shonat and Mahn Gurudhum.
- Beasts of Tygrontuk.

Colours you intrigued, I hope? Story details will ensue. Keep well in the meantime guys and all the best. x x -TomT

The London MCM was a good one, and I shall be uploading the photos onto the facebook along with annotations to both Scotland and London MCM 2017 photos in general. Currently I'm giving the website, including the lore, bio and FAQ another big rinse to make the text all spick and span. After that I should hopefully be in a better mind set to tackle the extra Lore chapters, which have partly been tricky because it's a case of first of all deciding what would be interesting and worthwhile to write about, and what I can just tackle within the comic pages and Bios sections. But after many spidergrams, I will be getting there. Anyone who has seen my portfolios at the convention will know from the ink drawings that I've got quite a few new pieces to put on display. Stay tuned lads, and hit me questions on my email
here if need be.

27/10/2017:
As always, as you can expect, the Scotland MCM was a real hoot!
Now if you've bat an eyelid on the facebook announcements (I'll admit i can be a real quite lad these days) you will be aware that on short notice, I will in fact be exhibiting at the
London MCM Expo this weekend. It's just going to be another casual trip for me this time, but here's hoping I'll make it a goodun and I'll catch up on new and old faces alike. I should also note at this stage, I'm also planning to Exhibit at two more conventions, but I can only announce the confirmations as they come.
With the books on the display I was able to get the prices with my printer this time round. So for anyone wanting to get a copy, you'd better catch them quick. The current prices are as follows

In other news I shall be uploading a fair share of artwork fairly soon, including this year's Halloween pinup, various other pieces in the works, the profile images for Shiki and Dr Chimera, and an updated version of the Maud vs Betyu Wank to reflect the current dialog since its inclusion in Profane Divinations. Stay tuned for Illustrations galore! -TomT

21/09/2017:
Scotland MCM this weekend, boys and girls. Sadly this is my last convention of this year as far as i can make out, though i am keeping my eyes peeled for zine fairs or if anything at all pops up. I'll be sure to make this MCM a good one. I'm teaming up with Curt Sibling and John Alexander once more, so we will be formidable force to be reckoned with even if i am leaving one of my old banners behind for this one (I've only got so many arms). I'm hoping to see many old and new faces there. Will see you soon, Glasgow!

10 new bios has been added to the roster of the character select. Some of these are still in a drafting stage so expect some changes. I just had to get a foot in the door as they say amongst the other things I'm working on.
Shiki Logan and Chimera don't have comic previews on the grounds that they haven't appeared in the comic yet (only mentioned in reference). I'm working on pinups to rectify that issue. I could use art from the old manga but that's like 13 years ago, so i think i can do better. Expect an improvement meme. :P
Other than that I've got Glasgow booked as you know. I'm working on content for the website and online avenues. Relating to various new artworks, in truth, i'm keeping my eyes peeled and ears to the ground for professional ventures for clients, so hence why I sorta pushed back the release date for an online store for the books (mind you personal copies are still available if you wanna note me).
Many cheers by the way to certain people for the multiple shares on Facebook on certain artworks. It's been much appreciated.
Approximately 2 lore stories (i.e. Short synopsis of events) are on their way and 12 more bios will be coming this year, including one of Orion. :P Thanks and all the best! -xxx TomT

The MCM Expo in London was an absolute blast and in case the post announcement on the Facebook messageboard wasn't enough I just wanted to say thanks again to all those making this one such a success.

Onto the future, the
ICE event in Brighton is happening tommorow for the day. I've got my last few copies of Book 0 part 2 handy as well as the other 4 books of which UKomix did a smashing job getting done. As it's my first convention right on the seafront, it's certainly going to feel like a real adventure selling comics and getting some of that fresh coastal air at the same time.

My table is 31. I'll be wedged between Aces Comics Weekly and the legendary Pat Mills (!). I look forward to seeing you all there!

Prices are below.

Comics:
Genma Visage Book 1:  9.50

Yes indeedy.
It's that time of year again. Though admitedly I wasn't there in 2016, but this year on this weekend, the London MCM expo is happening in the Excel centre and you bet Genma Visage will be firing it up in this hot May! With my biggest print run to date including the first editions of Book 0 parts 1(final) and 2 It's sure to make quite a splash, and I sure have to restrain myself to not waffle on the journey it's taken to get here. It's been quite a ride to have these done, pretty much a spiritual journey even, but i got there in end. While I'm keeping my eyes forward to the next adventure, I'm sure you'll enjoy this book just as much as I had a most fulfilling adventure writing it.

Incidentally the newest editions of Books 1 to 3 will be here. They're the same as before apart from the butt-kicking new covers that I've now granted them so I shall think that'll bring peeps over quicker than ever. Also there'll be a new banner for the table next to the other "two ladies" that i regularly have. Mistress Lumriya based on the Book 2 cover will now be watching my back and based on what I saw when i pulled it out she sure looks smoking!

While Books will be the priority on the table, my previous prints "Springfield warriors" and "Tyrannical Cryomancer" will be available going for 10 each. Commissions are still on the ball as well, and despite spending the past 2 months writing, I'm quite sure that my drawing hand will still strike true. :D

All my recent artwork and comic previews should be in my art porfolios that'll be on display. In particular I'll have some works in progress of my side project Pagan Leers available which I hope will entice you further. Breaking away from the Darker action Horror of Genma, the working title "Birth of the Marid" is set to be a little adventurous and certainly quite spicy. :P

One more note. As much as Book0 part 1 and 2 are available from me personally, advertising-wise it's not official yet, which basically means there is promotion art on its way before you can grab it from the likes of Lulu and other venues. Any help to spread the word of Genma would be much appreciated though. ;)

My next show after this one is two weeks from now is the
ICE event in Brighton of which i did get a little spotlight on their site. So far 2017 is shaping up nicely.

My rates are as follows. I hope to see you all there and meet new peeps along the way. I hope you all have an awesome one too and many cheers for your support. ;D x x -TomT

Hello chaps! Hope you've all been keeping as well as can be!
Good News on Good Friday! I've been putting off the announcement for about a week, but today is more appropriate. I am pleased to announce that the workload including the comic art, writing, lettering and formatting for Book 0 Part 1: Profane Divinations is now complete. With a week to spare I met my own personal deadline to have it complete and apart from the proofreading suffice to say I am a very happy Bunny. Compared with it's Brother Part 2: Progeny of Shemsu-Hor this is certainly the biggest book to date, quite the expansion compared to it's earlier page count of about 54 pages.I'm having a quick formatting job of the previous books but it sure is a joy to have a full library and start the new adventures to come. In the fall of May you shall see Maud Lesgov and Relicia's gang get up to their shenanigans in the future print runs of the Genma Visage series. Incidentally certain fellows who get comics printed for me may wish to keep an eye on their inboxes.
In the meantime, I'd like to brush up on some well earned Illustration duties very soon and also knock up a new pull out Banner as the prestige totem to show off at conventions. Huzzah!

In other news, soonish, more likely May, I shall be unveiling works in progress of designs and illustrations regarding a project under the code name "Pagan Leers". The actual title it'll go under has 90% been decided on, but maybe subject to change. I'll fill you all in when the time comes, but it's certainly shaping up to be a fun project and a breath of fresh air compared to the dark and horror orientated presence that is Genma Visage.

That'll be all for now. Peace and God Bless, chaps. -TomT

19/02/17:
Hello there, Old chaps. It's been a little while since my last post. Hope you've all had a exciting Halloween, cracking Bonfire Night \ Thanksgiving, a wonderful Christmas, a Happy New Years celebrations, and a Heartwarming Valentines day. Admittedly, i don't care much for all the recent Politics that populates the Newsfeed, although it's a bit of shame with some of the celebrity deaths as of late. But hey.

I've been alright, alive and kicking and all that. Ever the busy beaver. I suppose on that note I'll cut straight to the chase.

I have my first show confirmed, and that will be the
London MCM Expo in May. This is brilliant because as fate would have it, the Comic Village was fully booked last year in that venue by the time i could get to my inbox. Luck fell in my lap this time around though. In contrast to 2016 i would like to have conventions more plentiful from here on out. Whilst i can't confirm further convention attendances for the time being, the conventions i had in mind include ICE in Brighton, LFCC in Olympia, Bristol Comicon (a maybe), Leeds Thought Bubble, Scotland MCM in Glasgow, in fact as many MCM expos as i can get my hands.

Part of the reasons I can't confirm too many is because of course my commitment to getting books in print as well. Currently I'm tackling the lettering process of the final cut of Book 0 part 1, then both parts will be complete and I'll have what i call a current full set of books to take on the world with. Touchwood Part 1 will be in print for London MCM Expo. After that the next Book that will be on the cards would be Book 4 which shall conclude the saga of Jacobi and the Shogun Empire. Book 0 part 3, the final part of the Shemshu Hor Saga will follow, and will there be more Genma Visage titles? I'd like to keep hopeful. :)

In addition i have been working on the designs for the pending title comic Pagan Leers. I haven't got anything in concrete to mention now, but all i can say is, it's an Action Fantasy story with hot women, it's aiming for about the certificate 12a \ 15 age group, and it'll be a lot more light-hearted and upbeat compared to Genma Visage. It'll also do away with saga based stories. There will be a continuity but each book will be fully self contained stories. Saying all this though, I would like to have a set plan before starting any new comic projects in full and in particular I'd like to take a break if need be so i can work on other Professional obligations within the field.

Lately I've also added lots of new content to the galleries on my website, including my recent artworks and also sections for my Landscapes and Life drawing material to assure passer buyers of my interest in the simple things of life. Also for Nostalgia sake I've also added a gallery for other Non GV animations that i did during my University days, complete with recent insight and annotations on the matter. As you can see I've gone ahead to try and flex the appeal of the website. Whilst Genma Visage will always be the face, title, backbone and driving force of what i do, I've gone about presenting my Site to encompass my work and portfolio as a whole to catch multiple eyes if need be. Every little helps.

And that's about it! Further items you can expect on the website will be more artwork, several new Lore chapters and a more Populated character gallery where the roster will grow from 14 to about 36 characters as depicted in the series. So there you go, work work work! :)

Hope you all have a goodun and best wishes for your 2017 adventures.
