The Red Eyes Series



Feonel Grieryan, a legendary hero of the insurrection, is sent on a secret mission that could save Fayan from their conquerors, the hunters of Norjhallei. Master Koinde Fair, leader of the Fayan insurrection, sent his son, Faerin Fair, on this near-impossible mission. Faerin will honor his father’s name or die a hero’s death, for the glory of the insurrection.



For centuries, the hunter people of Norjhallei had been slaving for their overlords: the Masked Riders of Reyhalia. Searching for the legendary treasure the Red Icon. According to folklore, it had fallen into the granite mines of Norhjhallei. For their continued subservient labor, the Reyhallian riders gifted them with five swords of obsidian fire.

Twenty years ago, when Srav the II rose to the throne in Norjhallei, a massive gravity storm shook the continent to its core and unearthed the legendary Red Icon. Srav the II however coveted the mythical icon for himself and he dared to play a dangerous game of deceit against the Reyhallian Masked Riders.



With the power of the obsidian fire swords, the Norjhallei hunters launched a cruel conquest of their neighboring rival kingdoms. Total victory was at hand when disquieting reports of a Fayan insurrection reached their ears.

King Srav II organized elite hunter bands to keep the Fayan insurgents at Bay. His main attention though, was towards the black diamond mines in the desert kingdom of Demersia. The power of the obsidian swords gave them victory in war. However, the gift from the Reyhallians had taken a toll on the King and his men, darkening their minds, and twisting their flesh.

Our heroes Feonel and Gaerin are accompanied by Kemali Raio who has a gravity power stone, Neitham Sum wanted for theft, extortion, gambling, and vandalism, Esler Ulan, a humanoid tiger wanted for murder, Readou, an expert marksman wanted for murder, doesn’t talk but is not deaf and Rengel Wolsvil, a monster tamer wanted for lending support to the rebels.

Days later, the little town seemingly found its peace again. Little did they know that the Norjhallei hunters were closing in and were raging to recover above all one single object, the Red Icon.

Luther Tennenwald, the butcher of Lunyan, one of the highest-ranking commanders in the Norjhalley army, had been tasked by the King to hide their most valuable treasure away from their capital, while their overlords visited them. The King’s gambit would fail if their overlords found the Red Icon in Norjhallei. Luthur had to bring the treasure to General Deimas immediately.

The Red Eyes Series



The Red Eyes series is a gripping tale of heroism and sacrifice set in the war-torn land of Fayan.


The story follows Faerin Fair, the son of the valiant General Kionde Fair, as he embarks on a perilous mission to save his homeland from the oppressive Hunters of Norjhallei.

Alongside six elite insurgent heroes, Faerin navigates through treacherous landscapes, facing formidable foes and moral dilemmas. The series is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity.

Each volume is a gripping chapter in the larger saga, with the heroes facing increasingly daunting challenges as they strive to free Fayan from the clutches of the Hunters. From the Sunken Forest to the Silent City, the heroes’ journey is fraught with danger and uncertainty, yet they press on with unwavering determination.



The artwork vividly captures the tension and drama of the narrative. The artwork reminds me of the style of Guardians of the Erloth. I like the introduction to the story, the map, and the character’s wanted page.

The first and second issues have partial nudity. The story itself so far is not a complicated story that only adults would understand, it has the potential for a broader audience but the art limits that. However, the creator has to right to take the story in whatever direction he wants and there are still more stories to tell.



I support maintaining age-appropriate content on the internet. That’s why I’m glad that most of the adult-oriented art was covered up in the campaign. Just because something is online doesn’t automatically make it appropriate for all to see. Sometimes people tend to forget that little children to adults have access to the internet.



The Obsidian Knight saga is the first season of the Red Eyes story. The story will be told in 10 issues. The story arc thus far is planned to be told as follows: Supplemental 1: Blood Rain, Red Eyes 1: The Red Icon, Red Eyes 2: Obsidian Fire, Red Eyes 3: Escape from Silent City I, Red Eyes 4: Escape from Silent City II, and Red Eyes 5: Descend into the Dark Underground.

The art for the covers of issue 4 and 5 are part of the bonus material in issue 1. It is always great to see that creators have a plan for telling their stories and it is always reassuring to know that you are investing in a complete story arc and will not be left halfway behind.



The crowdfunding campaign for the Red Eyes series was first done on Indiegogo. There I selected the Catch-up Perk that includes a physical copy of issues 1-3. I received the 3 books and 3 prints. The frequency of campaign updates via the Indiegogo platform varied from monthly to quarterly.

The package was received with no issues at customs. The books were bagged but not “boarded” which can be annoying for those who want to conserve the books in their best condition.

Later a second chance campaign was published on Fund My Comic, a relatively new crowdfunding platform for independent comic book creators where in addition to the individual 3 issues, a volume 1 hardcover was offered containing all 3 issues. I never received an email about this campaign.

The Red Eyes Series



The Red Eyes series is an interesting tale set in the war-torn land of Fayan, following Faerin Fair as he leads a group of elite insurgent heroes on a dangerous mission to free their homeland from the oppressive Hunters of Norjhallei.

The narrative explores themes of heroism, sacrifice, and the resilience of the human spirit, drawing readers into the heart of the action. While this action fantasy adventure has the potential to appeal to a broader audience, the partial nudity limits its accessibility to a younger audience.

The Red Eyes series is an entertaining read for fans of dark fantasy, offering a richly detailed world and a cast of compelling characters. Most importantly it seems to have continuity which is very reassuring for those who want to invest in complete story arcs.

Given the extensive world-building and supplementary content already available, it would be highly beneficial to showcase them online via a dedicated website featuring an online store for newly printed issues.

Additionally, there’s an opportunity to enhance brand visibility through promotional efforts and improve communication with both existing and potential customers by implementing a regular newsletter. It’s worth noting that the crowdfunding campaign for Red Eyes 4 is anticipated to launch in May 2024.
