Collecting the first 6 issues of The Maroon, Volume 1: The Cursed Shadow follows the exploits of a nameless man of Afro-Native heritage as he flees pursuit from an ambiguous atrocity pinned on him by the law. Not only must he endure relentless pursuit of law men and bounty hunters alike, but he must also contend with supernatural forces and creatures of mythical stature. Despite those obstacles, his biggest threat is his looming mysterious past, that haunts him at every step and brings trouble to all those who surround him.

Created by Derek W. Lipscomb (who also serves as primary writer and artist), this first volume also features the writing talents of W. Brian Coles.

    This is fantastic. Being the first 6 issues in one volume i thought i would read it in 2 parts.
    That did not happen.
    I couldn’t stop reading it. From the first page in this massive story i was hooked. To think this is done all mostly by one man is mind blowing. Single-handedly he has created a story that sucks into the world of a man on the run. We are slowly given more information about his past and his apparent destiny. Its works so well as the other characters are given time to sine and grow in their arcs as well as the main cast.
    The art work is solid all the way through. Everything from simple walking through the woods to the massive fight scenes looks amazing because they time has been taken to get every little detail right.
    This could be on tv someday and i believe it would rival even game of thrones some day.
    If you haven’t already been drawn into this world then what are you waiting for? Do it now!
    I will most certainly being picking up the latest issues so i can continue following this amazing story

    With tons of fast paced action mixed in with some interesting characters, “The Maroon” was definitely a fun read! I especially enjoy all the fantasy elements of the story. They made for a uniquely enjoyable world that I’d love to see more of in the future 🙂

Derek W. Lipscomb is a New England native and has been drawing since the age of four. Following in his brother’s footsteps, he began drawing his own comic books and creating characters ever since. Unlike them however, he refused to grow up, and is still doing it today.

 While he does have his degree in graphic design, most of his artistic skills are self-taught. Drawing from a variety of childhood  influences that include Godzilla movies, comic books, Star Wars, Saturday morning cartoons and various cinema, Derek enjoys paying homage to these ingredients in his various works. Many of his original art can be found on his personal website and his Deviant Art profile.

 Residing in Southern California with his wife and daughter, Derek works as a Graphic Designer and writes and illustrates “The Maroon” under his Owl Eye Comics production.
