This time around, I opted to come forth with a remake of an old title, X-Zero, now entitled Zero. The story was independently published in Graveyardstudio's early 2 zines (Free and eXDee #1) a few years back. On the third volume, the continuation came to a halt. Considering the evolution I've went through the years, in terms of art, but most importantly (and beyond saving point), the plot and concept, the story was then no longer relevant.

'Zero' is the one and foremost, most important title for me now. Starting it a few years back might be a mistake on my judgment. Whether or not was it a bad move, the part it played upon in my own progression is a merit, a gigantic one, as this one story's evolution is closely related to my own. Apart from the 2 early episodes being wasted without a place to belong to now (in the story, of course the pages itself belongs to me haha), nothing's lost.

So here comes the brand new, Zero:Black. 'Black' is a standalone episode, an introductionary piece. It serves the purpose of setting the mood onto the story, as well as character definition.

If you have been a follower of Graveyardstudio or (doubtfully) myself, and had gone through the previous X-Zero, I hope this one is much of an improvement for you, as much as it's been for the author. For myself :)
