This morning Aftershock announce a new supernatural cross-dimension adventure series from Inkpot Award-winning writer/artist and comic industry veteran, Graham Nolan. Joining Nolan on this new fantasy female-fronted series – entitled Girls of Dimension 13 – is fellow veteran of the industry, Bret Blevins as well as colour artist Greg Wright and letterer Carlos M. Mangual.
“Four young women are brought together by a mysterious invitation to live in a creepy building in NYC. They soon learn that the building houses a portal to the other twelve known dimensions, and that a malevolent creature known as Abraxis has bound these dimensions together, enslaving them to his will. For centuries, the portal has been guarded by a gatekeeper to prevent the evil on the other side from gaining access to OUR dimension.
Now the gatekeeper, Anna Nightlinger, is missing, and the only thing standing in Abraxis’ way is a quartet of young women with powers and abilities they don’t even know they have…for now.”

“Four young women are brought by a mysterious invitation to room together in a strange building in NYC. The building is a nexus point. A portal to the 12 other dimensions. A malevolent force known as Abraxis binds these dimensions together. Enslaving them to his will. For centuries, the portal has been guarded by a gatekeeper to prevent the forces of evil on the other side from gaining access to the world we know. To OUR dimension. Now, the gatekeeper, Anna Nightlinger is missing and the only thing standing in Abraxis’ way is four young women with powers and abilities they don’t even know they have…for now!”
As for the inspirations behind this comic?
“As the father of 3 daughters I wanted to do a story about girl empowerment with the visual craziness of Ditko’s Dr. Strange but with the heart and warmth of the classic Alex Kotzky comic strip ‘The Girls of Apt. 3-G’.”
