The Comic

Viola may be young, but she is already in training as a member of the Vatican’s secret demon hunting militia, code named “the Assassins”.  While avoiding being eaten by the same demons they fight, Viola and her friends become embroiled in a 40 year old mystery in a secret diary. But there are many who want the diary’s story to stay secret forever–the heads of the Assassins who are racing the solve the mystery themselves; the Orthodox church, responsible for the murder of the diary’s author; and the “Princes of Hell”, who can be destroyed by the knowledge within the book.

The Artist

I’m MJ Massey, art nerd, Byzantine Catholic, and comic creator. My religious background combined with a love of fantasy and anime gave me a very specific love of epic fight scenes in epic churches. I create worlds filled with beautiful architecture, dark intrigue, and complex characters coming into their own through their relationships to the people around them, all brought to life with my trusty markers.

There’s also Ko-fi, a digital “tip jar” where you can toss me some money to show your appreciation for my work! It’s similar to Patreon, without the monthly commitment. You can throw money at me whenever you chose, and your contributions will help me continue to make Vatican Assassins and start on some other cool projects. Like that WITCHNIGHT novel you didn’t know you really wanted until just now!
