Get Ready for the Storm...

RELATIVITY is a character drama that centers around a team of superheroes who operate in the fictional Gale City. The focus of the series, however, is the people behind the mask, and how they juggle work, life and love while donning a mask at night. While essentially a prose-comicbook series, Relativity is also firmly planted in the mystery genre as the team investigates and solves various crimes, while also contending with a menagerie of strange and interesting villains.

Lost and Found Scene 1 - Relativity Episode 1The light above the vanity flickered, throwing the room into a series of shadows. Babs Stone tapped the plastic casing with her finger, hoping to jiggle the bulb back into place. The room fell into complete darkness. After a moment, the light snapped back on, shining bright and steady. The prostitute leaned back towards the mirror.
Pulling up her chin, Babs checked her throat carefully. While she didn’t have a policy against rough stuff, she didn’t like when her clients left marks. It made it difficult when picking up another john, not to mention she simply didn’t like bruising on her neck. Satisfied, she tousled her long platinum blonde hair so it framed her face, then twisted open a cylinder of Fire Engine Red and  smeared it across her lips. She could hear shuffling and smiled at the thought of the man on the other side of the door.
While she had several regulars, Babs liked Denny the best. He was always clean and smelled nice. More than that, he always called

   "Sorry," he said as the man helped him up. "Got a bit carried away there."
   "So I see." The martial arts instructor pressed down on the chef's shoulder and grabbed his forearm. "You need to adjust your stance. Stand straight, but don't tense. Position yourself like this. Now, try it again."

The Beginning...

Black Torrent commission by shamserg

Twenty years ago the Black Torrent patrolled the streets of Gale City, protecting the citizens, until he disappeared without a trace...

Michael Bruce is one of the world's richest men, head of a real estate empire that spreads to all corners of the world. Many wonder what is the secret to his success, but Michael's secrets travel far beyond the boardroom...onto the rooftops of Gale. Taking over the role of the Black Torrent, the young CEO follows in the footsteps of his father, keeping the streets safe from crime. When Martin Bling, the billionaire casino mogul, shows up on the scene, Torrent and his team start digging into the man's less-than-ethical affairs. They are aided in their investigation by the mysterious Dark Flame, a relative newcomer to the crimefighting scene. Expecting to uncover corporate corruption and dirty business dealings, what they find threatens to shake Michael to the core – a connection to Bling's girlfriend he never dreamed of, and a revelation that the past he knew wasn't what he thought it to be. As crimefighting and family drama collide, the team must deal with secrets, lies and betrayals, and the prospects of an uncertain future. -- Click to Read

October 6th + 4 Years

I posted this message on my main account, but forgot to drop a line here. A quick update on our next story upload and publication of Book 6...

A quick update. Still slowly feeling better. (Yay!) My goal is to get back on DA this coming week.

In the meantime, Jim and I have been working to get Relativity back on a more formal publishing schedule. Our goal is for new stories to premier on Tuesdays. To keep in line with that, we have decided to push back the launch date of Book 6 to Tuesday, October 6th.  Both Episode 43: "A Dish Served Cold" and "Book 6: Sweart " will be premier on that day.

I cannot tell you how excited we are about both the story and the anthology. It's a small additional delay, but we know it will be worth the wait!

We are also excited to announce we have some fun stuff planned for our 4th anniversary on October 31st. There will be the premier of the cover-art for the second story anthology, created by FranciscoETCHART, along with several other pieces commissioned for the anniversary and featuring characters and scenes from the upcoming Cycle 2 of the series.

Lots of great stuff coming soon. Stay tuned.

As a fellow writer, and superhero lover, I am very impressed with all the work and effort you have put in here :)

How is the best way to follow your work? Are you planning on publishing (either ePub or self-publishing? Personally, I'd love to see this as a graphic novel).

Actually, the way the series works is that we publish the individual episodes then compile them into eBook anthologies (currently ePub, Kindle and PDF). We have 4 books available now, and book 5 is set to publish this month sometime. We also have 1 side story collection. We did offer a "deluxe" version  for purchase on Amazon and Google Playstore, but most people preferred the free version, so now they are exclusively available from our site.

All single stories are published here on DA and on our website. The anthologies can be downloaded at  (…)

We would love to see it as a graphic novel, or better yet, a Manga. But that is just a bit (or rather a lot) beyond our means right now. So, we keep doing this and hope that maybe the other will come around someday.

Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to look at our work. We very much appreciate it.
