The author of the Dungeon guide, Infiltrator, joined the Celestial Heavens staff last week. If you have seen his avatar at the Round Table or his signature on the official forums, you already know he is a talented artist. While the Cranky Hero was on vacation this week, Infiltrator decided to take over and created a brand new comic strip. Blood Work is a four-cell strip that looks like a dark graphic novel. The first edition reveals one of the Dungeon's dirty secrets.

I put together all comics published on Celestial Heavens in a single page. In addition to the early Cranky Hero strips, which you might have missed, the new section includes the two Heroic Heresy strips created by Shadow Hydra a couple of years ago. We hope you enjoy the read.

Celestial Heavens Comics

This Web site has always been a supporter of fan-made comics. It all started a couple of years ago with the short-lived but very pretty Heroic Heresy by Shadow Hydra (a.k.a. Balista Hero), More recently, the Cranky Hero series (by Robenhagen, Pitsu and Angelspit) renewed the interest in this popular medium despite its crude drawing style and a controversial message. Last but not least, Ghosts of the Past by Vlaad and Blood Work by Infiltrator, the newest series to be published here, are the closest thing to a HoMM graphic novel you will find anywhere. Click on the pictures below to view the strips.
