What or who is a Leena Raze? Good question. Leena Raze is the star of a strip of the same name I created about ten years ago. It used to run in a little indy publication called Rap Sheet, put out by the Small Press Syndicate. I produced a few 2 to 5 page chapters, but then put the series on the back burner when the SPS folded. I had hoped to start it up again once I found a home for it.
Finding a home just didn’t seem to be happening.
It should have been obvious, but it took a little time. I have a website. And a website needs content. So I realized Leena Raze needs to run on this site.
Some changes have been made. The original art was hand-lettered and was printed in black & white with only halftone shading. I’ve added digital color for this re-release as well as digital lettering that is staying very true to the original lettering.
Unfortunately, the frequency of this series won’t be great. I’d like to do a chapter every other month. I know that’s slow, but my main focus must remain on my illustration work, the Night Craft series as well as other comics I’m illustrating. After all the old chapters are up, I’ll start producing the new chapters until the series ends. And it does have an ending, Leena Raze is one of those stories that’s all about the ending.
I’ve posted the pages below, to see it in the comic book section where the chapters will be collected, click here.
I hope you enjoy it. There’s lots more monsters, aliens and adventures to come in this one!
