VANCE CAPLEY’S DEVIL BAT STRIKES AGAIN!

Vance Capley’s Devil Bat Strikes Again!

After working on the comic book for several months, the second Devil Bat adventure is here: BIRTH OF THE DEMON SLAYER! Artist/writer/creator Vance Capley, “In this issue, we learn more about the Devil Bat and how he got his powers. This is an important issue as it is an origin story. Skarabis is the back up feature. 48 pages of super cool fun with 3 different covers to choose from.”

SPEAK OF THE DEVIL BAT

The Devil Bat is Sgt. Anthony James Blaine. After the Battle of Baghdad, he saw something that disturbed him so much he began to suffer from PTSD.

From the National Center for PTSD:

PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) is a mental health problem that some people develop after experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event, like combat, a natural disaster, a car accident, or sexual assault.

It’s normal to have upsetting memories, feel on edge, or have trouble sleeping after this type of event. At first, it may be hard to do normal daily activities, like go to work, go to school, or spend time with people you care about. But most people start to feel better after a few weeks or months.

If it’s been longer than a few months and you’re still having symptoms, you may have PTSD. For some people, PTSD symptoms may start later on, or they may come and go over time.

Anthony Blaine’s PTSD began to wreck his home life. It got so bad that his wife took their child and separated from him. It would take time, but PTSD can be treated.

There was one problem.

One of the symptoms of PTSD is dreaming of the traumatic event over and over again. Blaine dreamed of the event….but he saw demons. In this issue we dig into that horrible day and see what our hero saw.

GRABBING THE DEVIL BY THE TAIL

In our second issue the Devil Bat, we leard how our hero received his powers and how he got his costume. Plus a fantastic Skarabis adventure leading to the first issue of Thundervolt. Devil Bat #2 created, written, and illustrated by Vance Capley

THE DEVIL BAT STRIKES….FINALLY!

THE DEVIL BAT STRIKES….FINALLY!

After working on the comic book for several months, the first Devil Bat adventure is here: THE DEVIL BAT STRIKES! Artist/writer/creator Vance Capley is pleased, “I wouldn’t say pleased, but I am happy that it’s done. Writing, drawing, and lettering the book myself was a heavy task. It looks good, reads well, and to the folks I showed, the story works and they wanted more. That’s a plus.”
