On the 28th of June, 1914 a blend of happenstance and behind-the-scenes-plotting led to the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. This event was destined to alter the course of history and eventually lead to World War 1. Today, exactly one hundred years after that dreadful day, we are proud to introduce the graphic novel series “The Assassination of Franz Ferdinand”. The official website was also launched today at the-assassination-of.com
The series will debut on Friday, the 11th of July, 2014 with a 10-page long prologue that will be available online and free of charge in PDF format. The plot will blend historical events with fiction and it will span different time periods. The two main characters are Du'an Stahl and Eőrsike Lato. The former is an acclaimed writer for London-based history journal "The Chronicler". Eorsike is a young unemployed girl who revisits her grandmother's village, Csór, in Hungary, one week after she passed away.
The graphic novel will be drawn by Ana Santo, a young talented artist from Portugal and the story will be written by Dimitris Manos.
